What was this all about ?

Was it just a case of sat in the wrong seats, cold pies, somebody didn't like the legends Flag, Just seemed odd for the South

Was part of the top group to get moved along, apparantly those seats are to be kept free..... It was Neil Mellors younger brothers stag party and we had tickets in various parts of the South but wanted to all sit together.... those stewards sure earned their money for those 5 mins....

Not saying this is the truth as I'm unaware of the whole episode

BUT

If a group of Wednesday fans decide to sit right next to the away end with a massive flag, in an area usually not sold because of previous trouble then that's one thing to deal with

BUT (bigger but)

If those Wednesday fans were doing so because Vardy might score and then run up and celebrate with them then that's common sense not to allow it surely ?

Could you imagine the reaction of the rest of the South Stand ?

It would be a disaster waiting to happen

Saw it from the North Lep end.

It says 'Legends of the Kop to Spider AM'?

Not sure how to decipher it tbh.

I think that, "What was this all about" referred to the stewards appearing to be surrounding the few fans there, not what the banner said.

The 2 groups were unconnected.... i was part of the group with the flag and we werent anything to do with Vardy, as i said we were with the Mellor party... the flag belongs to a good friend of them......

It's etiquette to advise the club safety officer that you're turning up with a flag (flame retardant with safety certificate). Did you notify the club before the game ?

(not preaching - just curious)

Is there a problem at Hillsbrough with having a Home flag, in a home stand, a few hundred yards from the away fans, infact dont answer that, its Hillsborough, and everything is that much more OTT for that reason alone

Nothing to do with catching fire mate

Really... thought thats what a fire safety certificate relates to.....

Is there a point to any of what you're putting.....

The club had no problem with it otherwise we wouldnt have had it, we also wouldnt have been allowed on the pitch before the game for some pics took by Steve Ellis, and we certainly wouldnt have been given access to the suite that we were in before, during and after the game...... mate....
