I really struggle to understand why some people get so irate about it. It's a game of football FFS !!!!! Let them enjoy their day out. I don't like the word and certainly rarely use it but only a grass would go to a steward.

Unlikely to be many as it's not on general sale. The Grimsby fan would need previous purchase history with us, or an Albion friend willing to vouch for them. Can't see there being many at all.

If Albion fans are trying to sell them on at inflated prices then hopefully they get identified and banned.

So long as they don't get their Harry the Haddock out, let them enjoy their day out and remember where we came from

From what I've seen so far from most of their fans, it would be fine, they are respectful and don't really expect to get anything from the game but will be enjoying their weekend down here. Don't think this will be a big issue anyway as it's not like its Liverpool or Man U where all the sussex plastics are getting tickets off their mates.

Im sick of away fans getting into home areas. Alert a steward and chuck them out.
Let he who has never once bought a ticket for a home stand cast the first stone.

Just had a bet with a bloke who was adamant that Grimsby was in Yorkshire rather than Lincolnshire.

I won a tenner and he's suitably Humberelled.

I would be absolutely incandescent, would probably then give a rather loud tut and write to the Argus in the evening.

was in home stand at Villa Park for our FA cup game that was 2-2 draw under Poyet

family of away fans had two kids, also in home stand - one child aged about 5 celebrated our first goal - whole family got thrown out by stewards and abused by home fans in the process

another time have been in away stand at villa and some of our fans behaving in quite anti social way, several ( not me ) away fans complained to a steward stood next to me about it at half time - steward just shrugged his shoulder and said "its ok its at the football initt like"

never had much time for Villa after that ...
