    “to trivial matters like Manchester City fans successfully protesting for the removal of sultanas from their Chicken Balti Pies”

    mr Wagstaff is bang on with his comments. Ive been called Chubby at many a ground. At one i was arrested for standing up !!! at Ipswich due (in my and many forest fans opinion} to over active responses from stewards and officials from the football stadium, I think Mr wagstaff has a point. Lets all remember 99% of fans are there to drink and enjoy the 1% just give us all a bad reputation.

    You can call me an old cynic if you like but when your team plays in a magnificent new stadium and uses a bottomless pit of money to strengthen your side there isn’t much else to worry about except raisins in the curry.
    Should any Man City fan miss the old days of despair and misery they can get themselves across the Pennines to Grimsby, we’ve got it in spades and we’re happy to share it with anyone who’ll listen!
