about the pitch invasion,some of you supporters dont realise what damage running on the pitch,it does more damage to the club than you think,there was an asseser at the game last night ,and he was,nt pleased,he has complained to our club about this.we could be fined for this out burst,we are all striving to be a better club,but some idots .are still in the ground. do not run on the pitch after the game ends,other wise,you will be escorted from the ground.

As I said to you last night, a lot of people don't know that this is wrong, so a different approach is needed.

When lads have been told about this before they thought it was about damaging the pitch (in trainers???) so probably took it none too seriously.

Might I suggest that on Saturday, one of the Directors stands at the turnstyle and explains to the Barmy Army as they come in, about the legalities of invading the pitch and the implications with the Football League etc.

Very few of them come on here.

Yes some of the lads going on the pitch was wrong, but it was all in good nature no harm was done at all. I understand it may have implications with the league and whoever and will own up an apology from there behalf but I for one REFUSE to take the blame for other people's actions after all they are all over 18 and can take responsibility for there own actions now.

 

I am all for a Director to explain the do's and dont's to those who were on the pitch at the end, it needs to be done in the correct manner which I am sure will be sorted.

 

All in all a good night, good atmosphere and good win.

yh well said rick people did take it too far

it was a joke and if there was a member of the evo stik league there i think he will understand and i think weve will have some money from the fa cup games coming up if there is a fine on its way. also i think it is a bit to easy to get onto the pitch or at least put signs up arounf the ground !!

 

COME ON THE TOWN

rick the only reason i got anoyed was your mate got a bit aggresive to me and the steward you yourself told him to calm down,and my kids dont talk to me like he did i was only trying to defues the problem with him and the steward coz your mate wanted to fight him.and i no they are old enough to know,but you still should have said something to them.i dont think you would like it if someone spoke to your dad like that it only takes a few people to spoil it for other lads,i hope this situation is closed now.

B_A,

 

The only people to take it too far were the people who invaded the pitch. Having a bit of Banter with the away fans is one thing, but a show of aggresive behaviour to club officials is bang out of order.

Any additional income for the club from future FA Cup games should be for the benefit of the club, not to be paid out in fines because some fans (being polite there on a public forum) dont know how to behave.

 

FTB,

 

The Barmy Army are not all over 18 as you suggest, the majority would be under 18 and last night there were at least 2 lads who I would put at around 12 years of age at the most. These youngsters are copying and being influenced by the older members of the group who I would of hoped had more sense in such matters.

 

The Barmy Army used to be `Good Banter` between the fans but I`m afraid standards have dropped with both the language used and the aggression shown to opposing fans. If they carry on this way it wont be long before they get a proper hiding from some of the tougher opposition.

Not really my place to say as I've never been to a match... and don't think I ever want to after reading some of this :shock:

 

But if these troublesome lot are all kids and are obviously known to the club being it's 'barmy army' :? then rather than tell them off on facebook for their behaviour (which lets face it they may like for their 'street cred' status :roll: )..... the troublesome ones should be banned from the next matches or for good !

 

Behaviour of the type I have read in the above posts certainly wont do your clubs reputation any good and may even keep newer fans away if they read this or have witnessed their unrully behaviour and bad language for themselves !

 

Shame on them and they shouldn't be allowed to spoil the enjoyment for others.

I do not see how anyone can pin any blame onto Rick, he has already done a lot for the club in bringing a lot more supporters who do put their money into the club also. Yes I agree the pitch invansion was out of order, but believe me now not one of them would of took note from Rick if he had of told them not to just run on the pitch out of the blue. The banter between both fans since I have been going to Town games has been great, yes a few supporters feel the need to try and cause trouble, but unfortunately that is what comes with the game. Being honest though I personally think we should just put this behind us and put our focus on congratulating the squad for an outstanding win.

As per usual in today's society everything gets thrown out of proportion and ends up being twisted and turned into a bad perception.

 

Yes a few supporters enter the pitch the final whistle, in good nature to celebrate a win in the final minute. No harm, abuse or agressive behaviour came about - only during a small confrontation which has now been resolved.

 

If banning people is your perception of sorting the problem then as you state wouldn't that benefit their 'street cred' further?? Issues need to be resolved in the correct manner which they have now been done.

Daymo,

 

No one is appointing the blame to Rick. I know Rick and he has done a lot of good for the club in bringing in new support. My lad and one of his best mates are part of the Barmy Army and I attend nearly all the matches where I applaud and congratulate the team on their performance, criticise heavily also when they dont perform. Unfortunately it only takes a couple of idiots to spoil a good thing and like Dizzy says its the Clubs reputation thats on the line.

Do you have a problem with some of the language that is used around your son and his friend. Me and Rick have been discussing this matter about adults bringing their children along, if they disagree with anything all they need to do is speak to one of us and ask us to just reduce the amount of language.

I also agree that it was out of order for that one lad to kick off with the steward, but we was at home last night, the Leigh fans came and stood right next to us, banter is expected on a large scale when that happens, which is why when we played Chester, security would not allow fans together, why not do that for every game if the club want to reduce "inappropriate behaviour".

If any problems do arise again though, I will be sure to try my hardest to stop it.

Like I said I wasn't there so my comments were made based on what I read and also some of the supporters actions and comments that were made after the Chester match too.

Good to hear and you may notice that I didn't comment on supporters going onto the pitch to celebtrate as that didn't concern me :wink:

Banning people is my perception of sorting things out IF after being told they still continue to behave in an inappropriate way :wink: As for a ban benefitting their street cred more.. I doubt it as I'm sure they would much rather go to the matches and support their team :D:wink:

 

Anyway sorry if any of my comments offended you... that was not my intention. I just have a thing about foul mouthed, rude, argumentative or agressive kids with no manners... and adults for that matter.

 

Nice to know your club has none of those :D:wink:

Daymo,

 

I`m no saint, I tend to use occasional bad language at times appropriate to the circumstances, even been known to swear at the ref or liner on many occassions. My lad I dare say does the same. I know both he and his mate are no angels but they know where to draw the line. The problem I have, is with the manner in which way the bad language is used, i.e. aggresively or intimidating, directed towards the opposing fans to incite a reaction of aggression from them. The Barmy Army are small in number (and very young), it`s already kicked off once at home behind the goal. It only takes a minority to cause trouble for the majority and if that minority believe their behaviour isnt contributory to the violence then they are also stupid. Why not police it yourselves, assuming you know right from wrong. Some kids nowadays believe that the law will protect them, that bloke cant hit me, he`ll get done. If he`s caught he`ll get done yes, but thats probably after he`s beaten them senseless. Protect yourself, dont put yourself in that position to start with.

 

Ian

 

By the way, on the very few occassions I`ve taken my younger son to a match, I keep him well away from the Barmy Army.

Can we all try and move on from this - everyone has hopefully learned a lesson and club officials will be monitoring the situation very closely from now on and take appropriate action.

One of our directors runs a security company which employs many of the doormen around our town centre - so if need be they will be brought in to deal with any trouble makers in the appropriate manner.

Hopefully we will not have to go down this road as it will cost the club a lot of money.

Gary et al.

As Rick says, this has been blown up out of all proportion.

Whether the problem is going on the pitch, using bad language in the chants or abusing a steward, it needs to be discussed before the next home game which is this Saturday.

IMO a couple of issues need addressing without going OTT.

 

As I said earlier, a Director who may carry more respect than one of the supporters or John, needs to talk to the "Barmy Army" as they come in as to NOT going on the pitch and toning down the language. Jeff would be ideal if he is available. As I have mentioned before, do they know they shouldn't go on the pitch?

Another problem is the stewarding and what is needed in possible flare-up situations.

Does anyone have this organised? There are too many things going on where a lot of people aren't kept in the loop. I thought that was one of the reasons why we have a supporters club, so that things like this happening, some of us can step in and help the stewards.

 

As BT says, it's good to talk. (preferably before the stuff hits the fan.)

I shall be making my feelings known at the next supporters meeting with what I consider to be certain failures of planning and behaviour. In fact it wants to be put on the agenda.

General reply not aimed at anyone......

 

...but from where I'm sitting none of the above posts (including Gary's) are making the 'situation' appear any better.. infact it's getting worse the more I read (as an outsider) :roll::?

 

How about a swear/behaviour box.... you don't comply with the rules so have to hand over your cash.... just think FUNDS for the club too :D

 

Come on ... it's a local football club and they are doing great at the moment and I'm sure most of the supporters are great too including most of the barmy army lot.. so no need for all this from any 'side' eh :wink:

 

Don't spoil it 8)

 

Am I banned now :shock::lol:

 

PS Is the barmy army the same ones who watch Wolves play or does every sport/team have their own one.

 

'Barmy' if you ask me :lol:

Just to set the record straight - this is the first time this has ever happened, there was no voilence and no one was hurt.

Cantilever Park is a safe place to come and although the behaviour on Tuesday was a little boisterous it will not happy again.

So come on down on Saturday Dizzy and we will put you in a stewards jacket and put you int he middle of the barmy army on the drums! :lol:

What about the trouble at the lancaster game? Now I have a question! The barmy army currently get in for students and pay reduced rate, and most of them no longer go to the college, and when the club realise this and start to charge full price how many will continue to come then? It seems its a faze and warrington boasting of the 'barmy army' will be short lived and back to the average support!

Ignorance is bliss. Get involved with things and maybe, just maybe you might learn what is going on to build for the future. :roll:

Cool.... always fancied being a noisy annoying drummer in a crowd. I'll get my sticks out and practice :lol: Do you think I may be a bad influence on them though if they are only young :wink:

 

Might give it a miss though as the barmy lot would probably lynch me after what I said... :oops::lol:

 

I can see myself being duck taped to the goalpost at half time to raise money for the club. ?1 a shot at Dizzy's head... and I'd probably deserve it :lol:

I dont recall there being a spot of trouble at the lancaster game, also people who go to Warrington College get in for free dont they? Other students get in for a reduced price, I for one have no problem paying full price and will continue to go, I would not be a supporter if the price mattered.
