thirdwell : (23 October 2017 - 03:48 AM)

I have spent the last hour reading some of the Rangers fans comments on the game. Each one of them said that the ref was a disgrace, that at least 3 Motherwell players should have been sent off and dozens of them claim to have heard the disgusting incident regarding Bowman breaking the nose!  In all my (almost) 50 years a 'Well fan I feel truly ashamed that the one and only great club in Scottish football is being victimised by the authorities (Rangers fans words not mine). I therefore urge that Motherwell, in fact all teams, that play Glasgow Rangers FC in future: do not tackle, do not jump for the ball, do not shot towards the Rangers goalmouth. If one of the opposition feels that a Ranger's player is a little tired or fatigued he should immediately notify the nearest official to have the game stopped so that said player may have a wee seat and a cuppa tea/coffee and a biscuit or two. This relaxation period is only relevant to players of RFC. If any other STEELMEN can think of any way that can improve Ranger chances of winning please feel free to add to the above list.

That probably happened because the stewards decided it would be less work for them to make it a free for all.

Rangers an Celtic fans manage to deal with this every week so it's a poor reflection of those in our support who can't.

quite sure both Celtic & rangers will be a sit where you like at all away games. Certainly seems to be the case at fir park.

I couldn't agree more, but as I understand it the point most are making is that this only works if you don't then have the stewards (who we're told to listen to), instructing everyone that the official line is to sit wherever you want. Seems the lack of consistency is the issue....if you want everyone to adhere to the instructions, then you have to be giving everyone the same ones.

 

 

Thats my point exactly Al.  We have to assume that the stewards were passing on official instructions, and what many fans were doing was complying with them.  The fault lay with the contradictory instructions not the fans who were simply doing as they were told.

Part of the problem is an unrealistic level of expectation. We see football from all parts of Europe on television daily and fans are expecting....the technical ability and flair they see from Spain's La Liga and the top end of the English Premiership. Thats just not possible. It seems fashion is over-riding common sense.

This. The stewards seems to be one of those sub-contracted English mobs that want to do as little work as possible.

Last time I was there, the club had posted which turnstiles would be used for which ticket numbers. Turned up at the ground and asked a steward which gated we should use, and between three of them, claimed they didn't know gates had been allocated. So they just sent us to the nearest one.

Do Motherwell provide stewards at away games ?? I have noticed a young guy who is a steward at Fir Park has also been at the Edinburgh City game and was at NDP on Saturday. Maybe Motherwell send our stewards as they will know the Bois and maybe give them a wee bit of leeway. Anybody know ??

Reasonable assumption to make - perhaps someone who paid at the gate could shed some light on what happened - were they given a ticket when passing through the turnstyle - for a seat. I presumed the tickets left over and returned to Accies would be issued to those PATG punters - @Fal_Dosser - care to pass comment?

Hi D, yep, I wasn't sure I could make Saturday until lunchtime, and headed over for the gates opening at 2pm to make sure I got in (wasn't sure how many tickets if any, were available). And as mentioned, at that time, other than me, there didn't seem to be many using the 2 PATG styles while there was a fair q at the ticket gate ???

 

My ticket was seat allocated, and that's the one I sat in - was discussing the seating with a couple of guys next to me, and we were convinced they would enforce the seat allocation as there has been previous over there, but obviously not - the issue is not going to change, and next visit  will be exactly the same no doubt - all I'd suggest is getting there a bit earlier and sitting in your seat, unless the club reading this take action beforehand.

 

For what it's worth, I don't have a problem with a ticket that gives entry without allocating a seat, but they need deal with it one way or another

If somebody is in your seat just ask them to move, instead of passing the issue along to someone else, then bumping your gums about it 2 days later to strangers on the Internet

Just on this seating debacle. Sparra went and spoke to Tommy Coyne who was sitting with his younger son and three of them had rocked up and paid at the gate, they were given tickets for different parts of the stand which resulted in one of TC's kids being miles away.

My enjoyment of watching them was diminished by the fact that some other people were leaning against my stanchion.
