    Think I’ve made a similar point before, but what I’ve seen a lot over the last week is a glut of pitch invasions, most ludicrously at Bury, where a second goal was still required, and where Andy D’Urso decided not to take account of the time the Bury fans were on the pitch. It’s generally good-natured at the moment, but it’s only a matter of time before we get a serious incident, and I make the point again, sooner or later fans will be penned back behind fences, and that’s something no-one wants to see.

    I remember the last game at the Vetch Field, Swansea City v Wrexham in the FAW Cup Final, Swans winning comfortably, and about 500 people just itching to get on the pitch, and the North Bank, of which I was part, sang in unison – at our own fans, in the last moments of those final minutes, the last time that bank would be congregated again – “You’re all a bunch of wankers”. That’s how we left the Vetch.
