"As for Maidenhead, the conga (which was amusing) aside, quite a strange bunch really – some the oddest chants I've ever heard at a football match" ~ localboy86, Amber Planet forum, 26th April 2015

Double standards as standard

Good to see the AFC Conference South forum steadily improving, although the rather basic look takes a little getting used to.

Anyway, the following comments are from a predictably entertaining thread concerning Room 101 nominations:

Amber Aleman ~
The fat bloke who hurled unwarranted personal abuse at the Maidenhead keeper on Saturday.

Nomadic U ~
That was properly cringeworthy. I dislike abusing players, and I strongly dislike personal crap like that. What's more the 'keeper hadn't done anything to wind up the crowd.

Sutton Sal ~
Good on you for standing up to that fat bloke.

Lenny Baryea (MUFC) ~
Can I take it as read that Maidenhead 'family club that happily bans it's own fans on spurious charges' United acted accordingly to apprehend and eject said fat bloke? Thought not.

Nomadic U ~
The steward who was stalking the Sutton fans seemed almost as concerned with stopping Sutton fans putting up flags as they were with swearing. Once mocked he slid away.

Taz (SUFC) ~
Yeah, he moaned at me about Gareth's flag covering the advertising. Told him it was fuck all to do with me. Second half, we ensured we covered as much of the main sponsors board as possible at the other end. There was very little life about the place all afternoon and their petty attitude just added to it.

And so, yet again, at least one member of a large travelling support at York Road is allowed to personally abuse the Maidenhead goalkeeper without being frog-marched out of - and banned from - the ground?

Sounds about right.

“Billericay Nov 26th: Ref. had commented on away supporters throwing things at our goalkeeper. Report had been submitted and the FA was taking no further action. Note”

I'm starting to think that they're putting in stuff like this, in a deliberate attempt to annoy!
