I go to a football match to watch the game & enjoy the occasion with fellow like minded greens
I for the life of me will never understand fans who think it is totally acceptable to turn up at a game either the worst for wear due to alcohol consumption before & during the game or think it is totally acceptable to set off a flare
I am no killjoy but sometimes you think these people have left their common sense at home when they go to a football match

I like to have a good few pints before the game. Don’t act like you’re a super fan because you don’t drink.

Thank god you lot aren’t fans of clubs around Europe where they have mass flare/pyrotechnics shows for 90 minutes!
Beware, alcohol is the curse of the devil.
It takes away all sense and reason.
Not that the young had any in the first place, mind!
The older you get, the wiser you become.

There is one guy l remember people complained about regarding his language & behaviour at Argyle games.

He is now a YouTube sensation. I think that explains the world we currently live in.

Many will see the Argyle game as only a small part of the day / weekend. it was our first London game since COVID. Was always going to be a popular choice. Again many would have took the train so could have a few beverages, or stayed up and made the weekend of it. People do have other hobbies and past times aside from argyle believe it or not

I agree, it's probably a full day or weekend in the Capital for some Argyle fans so a chance to let your hair down and enjoy it.
No need for the flare though, aside from the safety issues Argyle will also have to stump up the fine.

Well I’d say so. It isn’t exactly Heysel is it? You want this lad banned for life over throwing a can of coloured smoke on the pitch. He hasn’t even tried to hurt anyone, there is no intent to do anyone any harm.
The irony is, I‘d bet among the mob calling for lifetime ban, there will be a few who did far worse things (they wouldn’t like to admit now) following Argyle in the 70s and 80s.
You know it's a lad?

We must be one of the only clubs with the obsession of wanting to ban someone for life for attempting to create an atmosphere. I bet those clamouring for this life time ban don’t know the “culprit”. We saw only a few weeks ago dozens of posters jumping to the defence of “Ollie” saying how harsh the ban was, only to then find out that it was a different “Ollie” and they didn’t even know him.

Too many happy to make judgements on people they don’t even know, yes it is against the rules and regs to bring flares into stadiums, so let the authorities deal with it.

I thought the modern day “flares” were nothing more than smoke canisters that didn’t radiate any heat anyway?
Yet some will blindly jump to the defence of people they have never met.

It burnt a hole in the pitch

I know I did far worse things at a football ground when I was under 25.

In the modern game is is simply not acceptable to throw anything onto the pitch. People know this and yet continue to throw objects. There is no excuse at all. Smoke and flares are dangerous, i work with explosives, including fireworks and flares. The individual should be made aware of the dangers and fined accordingly, including the cost of any repair of damage caused. Banning them will achieve nothing. Hitting people in the pocket does a lot more.

Perhaps I’m being whooshed but how sanctimonious can you get? It would be easy to make a number of generalisations about the older demographic of our fan base but I’ll refrain.
