Once the stewards had ripped them from under the boots of the fans I saw 3 or 4 people (I think a woman included) being escorted away all able to walk but covered in blood. Not sure there were any other taken away in a different direction

 

To be fair, if you went in there you had to expect trouble. We went in the Popular Side and apart from a couple of minor incidents it was fine.

Looked a right old barney. To be honest, seen far worse. Blackpool in 1997 was tasty.

First and last time i went to blackpool. Was a bit worrying, mainly cos their ground's so decrepit i thought people might rip the concrete off the terracing and chuck it at each other.

 

Not sure Gordon's verdict on LW was the most tactful: "Serves 'em right. Should have given us more tickets." He's right but you shouldn't really say it on the official site... ^_^

I can't believe more hasn't been made about this farce.

 

In this day and age Stockport's ignorance is unacceptable. Trouble was always going to happen and that should never be the case. Especially at a League One game in front of less than 8,500. Shameful.

There are two sides to this.

1) Stockport should have sorted more tickets out for Latics

 

2) Latics fans who went in home ends should have have taken care to seat themselves well out of any potentially dodgy areas, and shut the :censored: up when we scored.

 

The failure of Stockport to do item (1) doesn't really excuse Latics for not folllowing (2).

 

None of the above justifies Stockport fans laying into people, but it is sensible to avoid certain circumstances, and I hope that no people got hurt in the events who were being sensible but got dragged into things caused by people acting like knobs.

Correct. They were never going to sell out so why not give us the whole of that stand on the side like we've had in the past?? Not doing so was directly responsible for trouble that ensued.

Didn't see any fighting from where I was, couldn't really see what was going on at the bottom. Just seemed like they were surrounding them down there, police took an absolute age from the other side of the ground.

 

It had it coming, hopefully Stockport will now wake up to whats happened. No doubt it'll all be our fault.

Not really, it was indirectly responsible for it perhaps. The trouble was still caused directly by away fans making themselves known at an innappropriate time and the more fighty home fans reacting. It could have been avoided with better decisions, but it wasn't caused by the ticketing decision.

I was in the Pop Stand away section, i went up to the turnstiles and said is this the Away end of the Pop Stand and he said yes, i had to walk all the way across the stand to get to the Oldham section, the divide was a bit of police tape it was shocking!

Of course it was caused by the ticketing decision! They wouldn't have been in the home end if they could have got tickets for the away end unless they are the type of brainless idiots who would have gone in the home end anyway. Your argument seems to be along the same lines as saying a woman deserves to get raped because she's dresses provocatively. Of course it's not the wisest thing to celebrate a goal in the home end but I did it once when we scored a last minute equaliser at Bury and sometimes you forget where you are.

I cordially invite you to investigate the meaning of the words, "directly," and, "indirectly." And your rape analogy is utterly tasteless - it compares the supposed "provocation" of a woman dressing attractively and the sick bastard who sees that as an invite to assault her with a football fan going into a place that he knows he isn't meant to be, and then rubbing it in the faces of the people who are meant to be there when they are feeling totally gutted by their team conceding a goal. Same thing, innit?

my mates (County fans who I had to give a lift home to) were right near it, they said they've never seen anything like it. Apparantly people covered in blood and everything, it's their own fault really I just hope we dont get a fine for this

 

 

Why would we get a fine? They were in the County end....not our fault they let away fans in the county end.

No roof. There was only an atmosphere in the first half but it was never going to travel. Bit like there was only an atmosphere in the County end the last 5 of the first and the 2nd half.

So the reason there was no atmosphere yesterday was because there was no roof? The reason the Chaddy End makes no noise is apparently because there is a roof.

 

When will we stop blaming the roof and admit that the reason there is no atmosphere is because the vast majority don't make any attempt to create one?

According to this site a County fan says one supporter had part of his ear bitten off. What made me laugh was it took the police a good few mins before they went and helped out.

 

Sad remember when we beat them 2-1 on the same day United lost 2-0 at home to Arsenal and both Oldham and County fans celebrated together.

 

In the pub before the game Oldham and County fans sharing a beer. Sadly i can see further restrictions being imposed or GMP making the game all ticket in future.

 

I went into the Swansea home end last season but kept my mouth shut all game.
