It's not the general plod I'm critical of. It's their bosses who have no flipping' idea of rationality.

Im not the real OND wrote:Just been down to pick a ticket up and it looked as though the police were preparing for G20 style encounters. There were about 6 riot vans and several cars.

That said, there were quite a few chaps in front of me buying up tickets for our end who were obviously from Sheffield...

It was over the top policing for a PSF & must be costing our club thousands!!
There were quite a few Sheffield Wednesday fans sat near me in IGL , no bother at all ,
that should've been in the North Stand if it wasn't for SAG
a stag is a proud & noble beast

So, for the third time, what's the logic in restricting the numbers of away supporters ?

There appears to be two issues why the full 1800? tickets are not sold.

Firstly the first two rows of seats are covered in netting. I can only think they are trying to keep fans farther away from the pitch.

Secondly, the issue of fans not sitting in their correct allocated seat. When this happens a P factor of 0.9 is used for unreserved seating.

I can only assume that if they sold 100% of seats then folk would be standing in the aisle and not finding a seat next to their mates.

Quite amusing that some Wendy fans were locked the west stand side of the gate having been in the west stand during the game. So locking the gates to stop the fans mixing didn't really work (again) did it!? :lol:

Wow! If the policing was heavy against Wednesday, what's it going to be for forest, will it be like we're playing Russia ? :lol: :lol: :lol:

I preferred the p factor of 1.3 in the good old days when we played Cheltenham in 2002

I would imagine if you sat in the first two rows then you have to stand up to see over the metal barriers.

I would also imagine that stewards don't want to cause agro in getting fans to sit in their numbered seats.
