|FROM TODAY'S 'RONNY GILL'!|
"YI COULDN'T MAKE IT UP!"
Not only woz the kick off time of 7:45 bells' on a Saturday neet a recipe for disaster, (az fans had been drinkin' aall day), but away fans in the home section forthaa fuelled the 'fire' that woz to follow!
For weeks and weeks NUFC fans had been warned NOT to sell tickets to Liverpoool fans, desperate to gain admission to see them possibly win The Premyaa Leegue for the forst time!
Az it torned oot this wasn't possible, but there were pockets of away fans aall ower the groond, with many of them in The Platinum Club and corporate areas of The Milburn Stand!
It torns oot that NUFC KNOWINGLY sold a block of 200 tickets to Liverpoool fans in one corporate area, statin' that this woz normal procedure for away fans in corporate seats!
AMAZING HYPOCRISY if yoo ask us---to sell tickets, knowin' that this would undoubtedly cause trouble shud wor visitors score---which they did 3 times!---but the forst 2 goals were not celebrated by them for fear of bein' ejected!
But they couldn't help themselves when the 3rd goal went in with just 4 minutes left on the clock and celebrated wildly!----This resulted in a huge fight below us! (We were in the upper tier of The Milburn Stand)
After the final whistle, fuelled up Toon fans fought with their fans az they attempted to board their coaches home!
22 fans of both clubs were arrested!
"NO!"--- '7:45 bells' kick off times on a Saturday neet are not recommended --- but there will be many many more next season in the new arrangements for live telly, resultin in more disorder around the country, for certain!
|TODAY'S RONNY GILL'!|
NUFC shud hang their heads in shame for allowin' Liverpoool fans into the corporate areas, while tellin' Toon fans that they would face heavy fines for ticket toutin' and lose their season tickets, if THEY sold them to away fans!
|NUFC CLUB STATEMENT!|
"HYPOCRISY OF THE HIGHEST ORDER!"
