Our so called fans (the minority thank god!)

I always stay in my seat unless people in front of me decide to stand, normally due to a shooting chance in the box so its rare! So yesterday this happened a few times and then I got abuse from people behind us in the next block. I gave it back to them and stated that I only stand when I can't see because of others, but one guy kept on and on and I reminded him that he was at a football match and told him to shut up and get a life. Another guy decided to run across from my seat a little while later and grabbed the top of my shoulders and started to shout and rant, I have to admit that at first I thought it must be a mate that I hadn't seen but when I turned to see him shouting and spitting he got a response. He went back to his seat but after a few moments I decided that his actions were not acceptable and I walked over to him and warned him that if he ever laid a hand on me again he would be knocked out cold, I was seriously pissed off and couldn't believe that one of our own would do that and it was in front of Oliver. The first moaner then engaged with Oliver arguing and I had to inform him that arguing with a 13 year old boy was pathetic and over such a stupid subject. I lost it verbally and apologized to those around me after but they all couldn't believe that this bloke would grab me and shout, but they then also told me that he has been moaning all season at anyone getting up even if its for 30 seconds. Thr guy appeared at my side again and he stuck out his hand and apologized for his actions, to which I shook his hand but remined him that he can't go round doing that and picking me out as I'm the smallest wasn't a wise move. I'm all for seating rather than standing FFS! and those around me commented on the fact that I hardly ever stand, normally to bubbles or to observe a minutes applause for a hammer that has sadly passed away. Those around me told me that these people have rooted out a few people that have dissapeared and been replaced in their seats, and if I need witnesses then they would tell the club what happened. I hope it doesn't get to this although my reaction verbally was a strong one, but why one of our own would think that it's right to physically grab another fan is beyond me and it's a sad state of affairs. I love our seats and a lot of thought went into them, but I haven't yet renewed and I'm going to leave it a while to see how it goes over the next few games before I decide.

you get idiots who think they can say or do what they want at football,as a woman I have had many a sexist comment thrown my way mainly by people to intoxicated to even notice a game is going on or by a group of lads who think its ok to ask me to get my T*Ts out for them,thankfully those are the minority but they do take the enjoyment out of going to see your team play.

Sad state of affairs, ANTKB you are a decent bloke and Ollie is one of the most well mannered young men I have had the pleasure to meet. Don't let the morons win mate.
