How many flares and smoke bombs were confiscated at the home turnstiles today then?

How many were smuggled in and let off?

Big crowd, season ticket renewal time, club brassic. I know, lets right royally *beep* our fans customers off again.

I couldn't believe my eyes when a man in his 80's got searched. He had something in his pocket and the steward asked what it was and the man joked 'it's connected to my heart' steward didn't know what to say Laughing

Kids being searched too. Way over the top and I couldn't understand the reason for it.

Do we really have to do this again Confused ?

I bought a bag in today, I got searched as expected, big deal!

I went to the Amex with my 5 year old daughter a couple of years ago for Kuipers testimonial, her Peppa Pig bag got searched. Did it bother me.... Not at all.

Millions of people get on flights every day, they get searched, they get scanned, kids too. What's the problem?

Well I have a problem with it. I expect it at an away game, but not when I approach the turnstile with my 6 year old with our season tickets in my hand.

Went in the East stand for the Bristol City game with several friends , none of us got searched.

Where was all this searching taking place ?

Going in to the West Stand a steward asked to look in my bag - a very cursory glance.

All done very politely and I would hardly call it being searched.

I wonder if the stewards are following football league guidelines ????

Some are more keen than others ???

They said they had been instructed to do random searches because it was the last day of the season and people might get excited and use flares or smokebombs, hence the title of the thread.

He then went on to say that he was searching me (which he didn't in the end as I refused and had a supervisor come and sort it out) "for the safety of my son" which *beep* me off even more.
