The police did not seem to get involved even when a flare came onto the pitch. Just seems everything gets looked at at a later date in MK. But why when a MK Dons fan came onto the pitch to celebrate a goal in a game before, was he arrested for it and not allowed to return to his seat. It was right decision, but you just feel that the away team fans get away with too much.


Police and stewards handle groups of fans differently depending on the game through a risk assessment. Sometimes it's more trouble than it's worth to deal with people at the time, especially when there are large groups of rowdy supporters. Will potentially cause more aggro if a group of stewards/police wade into the crowd of 8k supporters to pick out one or two they want to eject, especially if it was only a brief issue and the people are back where they should be.

Easier just to identify them after the game and deal with them at a later date through a ban or worse if it justifies it.

Oh yes precious it will all be on the cctv and they will find them. :ugeek:

It was a man of medium build, medium height wearing a sky blue shirt. I think he had brown hair.

Just heard from someone who works at MK1 and it would appear that the police and the security have had a busy Monday and possibly the rest of the week. I have heard they want to keep as many police in and around the ground on the day to protect the public. Also heard they will take the flare incident very seriously as it landed on the pitch. I have also been told that the CCTV is excellent and covers nearly all inside and surrounding outside of the arena. Think some Coventry fans will be having a visit shortly by the boys in blue rather than the fans in blue.
