Seagulls fans warned of delays after clash

First published in News

Fans could be ordered to stay inside a football stadium for up to an hour-and-a-half after the Seagulls away match against bitter rivals Crystal Palace.

The Metropolitan Police yesterday (November 22) announced supporters – but did not say for which team – could be kept inside Crystal Palace’s south London Selhurst Park stadium in a bid to stop troubles between Palace and Albion fans following a match on Saturday, December 1.

PC Darren Balkham, Brighton and Hove Albion football intelligence and liaison officer, said the Met was leading on the issue but Sussex officers, as always, will be working in London and be a point of contact for all Brighton fans.

Hopefully the same will apply when CP come to the Amex after last years antics at Falmer station and the Bridge above the platform.

That's why they have already taken the sensible measure and moved it to Sunday 17th 12 O clock KO.

1.5 hours, you poor things. Wouldnt bother going. I went to the 5-0 trashing a few years back and was stuck for ages!
Amex - beam back. Safer - easier!!! :)

Ridiculous - treat people like animals - behave like animals...

Does this not give anybody who wants to cause trouble 90 minutes to organise themselves after....

Does this happen for any other game/ surely there are more games where there is a likelihood to be trouble..

Will there be post match entertainment provided on the big screen to stop boredom settling in???

behave like animals - treat them like animals. Prison's too good for them, flog 'em I say.

Surely the boredom will have set in about an hour beforehand...
