Thanks to MF and those idiots, the atmosphere on the Riverside was the worse that it's been since GP urged us all to get behind the team. The only people joining in the pathetic Combat 18 songs were themselves; the rest of us felt no motivation to join in. The result: a lot of quiet fans.

But you know who was involved, so why don't you report him to the club if you don't want to be associated with them, as you just said to me in a PM?
So scutinsing your post i would say you do know who it was....."i was in amongst the lads "........"i apologise for 1 of mates who stupidly throw"....How do you know the cctv footage doesn't reveal ? and who was the one that approached you ?

ok i was in that group and i knwo nearly all of them i moved to speak to a lad and a steward abotu somethng else and i suddenly saw a man climb the scaffoldin who shouted who threw that! so at the time of the innciddent i was at the buffet bar i have 6 witnesses! the reason i apologises to the victims is that i felt for them there day was ruined by a mindless w****r who i am certain is a lad i know but i do not im sure i'll nevr know who threw it only that group will!! i never come on here to cause a stir i just thoughtit was approiate to apologise cause i thought it was stupid end of!!
can i make a suggestion.... i dunno how others wud feela nd i cant really do it myself cos im away, but for the last game of the season, regular riversiders who are singers and like to create an atmosphere, go stand on the wakeman, leave the idiots in the riverside.
create a good atmosphere in wakeman, wud be great if you could get a large group in there and sing, some mite see this as backing down to the t**ts at back but i dunno.... just an idea

This type of incident is easily combatted if stewards who are paid to do a job do just that and not watch the game.
I agree. The stewards seem to treat it as a day out not a job. There should have been stewards in that area as soon as the idiots started singing. It doesn't take a genius to realise they aren't proper fans.
I think it's a top idea porky, an atmosphere can be created in the wakeman, believe it or not. If it's a nice day, I reckon it'd be great to get singing at the end, especially while we're kicking that way.
Couldn't make the game yesterday as I was working, but I can totally sympathise with the frustration having seen it all too often. Makes you wonder what would have happened if the bottle had landed on the pitch? Then the Club would have had to have done something, especially if the ref reported it.
Can I suggest that JP, or someone who was there makes this point to the club? Maybe that will act as sufficient spur to get some proper Stewarding?
Ignorance or Apathy - which is worse? I don't know nor do I care

This just reminds me of the Wycombe game at the end of January when some mindless idiot decided to shout racist stuff at Gus Uhllenbeek from the 'safety' of being amongst so called friends on The Wakeman End. What happened over that event? A pathetic and embarassing effort by the club by means of a half time announcment warning that such behaviour would not be tolerated. What has happened since then? Absolutely diddley squatt, nothing. There is still racist abuse handed out at random and there are still mindless idiots intent on spoiling an afternoon/evening out for the majority who go to The Meadow to support their local team. My point here is that there are very few stewards who actually do their job, ie - monitor and enforce spectator movements and behaviour, and also it seems that within the club itself there is very little being done to actually eradicate the problems by taking positive action. I sometimes wonder as to whether the club are happy to take the money at the gate and turn a blind eye to the immature and offensive behaviour that goes on within the ground. On several occasions I have spoken to a steward and even written to the club but still I see no positive response, infact I haven't even received acknowledgement from the club
