Indeed. The OB overkill at the game on Saturday was ridiculous. Bare in mind the fixture has little or no history of crowd violence at our place. The amount of OB in riot gear around us in block one was OTT and laughable.
Geared up like that is provocative itself, even if there had have been a history of bad blood. No need to be in sight of any supporters dressed like RoboCop. Fucking tossers and bullies, the lot of them. And the biggest kick in the spools is that our club had to pay for them being there mob handed.

There were shit loads at South Bermondsey and to be fair one did make me laugh.
When we pulled in from London Bridge, their Ulcers pulled in on the other platform.
No real issues just the usual today, fellas singing at each other. I did warn one of ours not to clump one as the cameras would get him doing 2 years.
Anyway when we get to the bottom of the stairs they got braver and shouted louder. A robo-cop says to a few of ours getting interested.
"leave it out lads, you know they are all mouth":LOL:

Simon Stone should be sued for slander by the club or retract his statement. He states “In the first meeting of the two south London rivals in nine years, flares were thrown by both sets of supporters”. As Lionchel says BS!
