And yet, in a twist of logic, when County play Chesterfield in the league the kick off time has been put back to 5.20 pm to suit the tv companies. Allowing the Spireites and their ‘quick on their feet CBS’ an extra couple of hours drinking time.

So how does this, a derby game, warrant a kick off time that has the potential for more disorder?

If you can explain why then send your answer on a postcard to ‘Andy, you don’t have a gate named after you Albanese’ at Mansfield Police Station.

Good question, perhaps it's because powder puff pillow fights don't warrant police action.
Why do the two football teams I support always let me down.

As usual the Bantams fans will be parking on the Sainsburys side of the ground while the majority of Stags fans will come from Town. This means we all have to pass each other on the narrow pavement of Portland Street. How is this more safe and easing congestion?

Why would they park that side ?

Just had a conversation with the steward asking everyone coming off Quarry Lane if they are from Bradford. He said nobody can go through the gate, end of. Then had 5 minutes watching another steward on the gate. Counted 17 people let through the gate.

It's almost like the ground was designed for home fans in the North stand and away fans in the QLE.
