Football takes another step to distance itself from its traditions and roots.

Compulsory face paints next.

Don't they understand that for many, the match is an important, but not the sole purpose for people going to football?

For me, and I suspect many others, football is a chance to meet up with mates over a few or several pints and get behind the team. The two are perfect bedfellows.

I hope people boycott Cambridge v Burton and all drink in the nearest pub instead.

Excellent news. Too many fans go into games tanked up causing mayhem. Not really our lot, but would certainly help when the likes of Millwall visit clubs.

Have to agree with the supporters groups, powers already exist to handle this issue so what is the point?

Surprised we didn't trial it along with our body searches to make the day an enjoyable experience.

Jesus Christ, are you the sheriff in Footloose?!?!

If Crawley are stupid enough to introduce this mental initiative they can kiss goodbye to my support. If someone is clearly off their heads and not in control of their faculties then refusing entry is appropriate. Someone having 4 pints wouldn't typically show any outward signs of being enebriated, but would fail the Cambridge fun test.

More than 4 pints and you're in trouble then. If everyone refused and just told the stewards to stick them up their arses then it would soon be binned. Trouble is, there are far too many compliant sheep that go to football these days. Rolling Eyes

If someone's off their face, they wouldn't get in anyway, just don't see the point. If the FA deem the trial a success will individual clubs be able to refuse to implement this?

Will they all stop selling alcohol inside the grounds too?
Of course not, they make too much money from it.

Whatever next.

If I was turned away for refusing a breathalyser test at the ground, I doubt it would ever happen again.
I suppose I could offer a p test instead - but they're not allowed to put the top on the bottle.

It's none of the club's business what supporters choose to do before a game in my view. Worst idea I have heard for some time!

Said it before and I'll say it again...

Modern football...crap!

If this happens then football truly is dead!
Anybody who agrees with this is not a football fan and should find a sport to follow!!

Ok not everyone drinks booze (that's fair enough) but drinking and football go hand in hand for a lot people, take it away and then as far as I'm concerned, football is no more!!!

Next step - a breathalyser that can detect the odour of prawn sandwiches.
