Agree with all that but to give it a bit more context how many emails/messages? 10, 100's, 1000's??Hello All
Just to provide a bit of context, the Supporters Forum has received an influx of emails and messages over the last few weeks from Boro fans that are concerned about the behaviour of some supporters at away games progressively getting worse. The feeling is that the that the vibe on the concourse away from home has changed a lot since fans returned to stadiums following the lockdowns.
The actions and attitudes of a minority of others has resulted in regular away day attendees no longer wishing to attend away games. or take their childern.
To give you a flavour of the issues, supporters are fed up with:
- People taking drugs in the toilets
- Male supporters being in the ladies toilets either taking drugs or urinating in sinks
- Female supporters being groped
- Fans being hit on the head by flying pints
- Aggressive behaviour on the concourse.
- Children witnessing fighting and drug taking in the toilets and concourse
That's just to name some of the themes but not specific to one particular game. You may have seen we raised this at the November MSF meeting with MFC and MSF are working with the club and supporters on what we can do to help try and reduce some of this.
Imagine if some of this behaviour was inflicted on your husband, wife, daughter, son, mate etc.
We all know away games are a great day out and the singing on concourse etc is all part of it, but the things mentioned above are not needed.
I think its just a matter of respecting others around you.
