Government suggest we turn up two hours

before kick off at every game so that the police can do more thorough terrorist checks.

Yeah, right, that's going to work.

What planet are these politicians on?

It's hard enough getting boro fans to the riverside as it is never mind two hours early.

So we let the terrorists win by changing our customs? ie, having a few pints before the match and turning up 5 mins before the kick off.

Stiff British upper lip I say, and don't let the terrorist scum phase you in any way.

Who said this??

I'm guessing not a football fan.

Yeah right

Like the scousers or any football fans to be honest are going to q in an orderly fashion and wait patiently to be searched by the police to get into a match

Don't know to be honest, just heard it on the on the Radio (talk sport) part of Browns Anti-Terrorist legislation.

The three England games at Euro 2004 that I went to, searched each time, and never any real hold up.

Get searched at a lot of away grounds and doesnt cause that much of a problem

re: Government suggest we turn up two hours

Yeah, I have no probs with being frisked when I walk through the turnstile, but turning up two hours before kick off? no chance.

Imagine a Saturday 12.45 kick off in Jan? you'll have to be there at 10.45, bit cold to be hanging around the concourse eating expensive pies and drinking exspensive low quality booze.
