Was it because people were standing?

.....it was about the 'standing' issue in 1st half....2nd half we moved to that little triangle section next to home support....usual banter between supporters....a few gestures and they started hauling out some of ours....not one of theirs got even spoken to....pointed this out to stewards who just laughed....should have asked them if they fancied a shift at GP.

The banter is normally tolerated, but as soon as you start using jestures you will probably get chuck out, agree that unfortunately it does only seem to be one way though.

There was a rather lovely young lady pitch-side steward, to the left as you emerged from the entrance, though...

Was the same last year in the upper tier. One steward in particular, fitted with a body cam, really got in people´s faces, looking to provoke. Ran around like he´d just hoovered half a gram, screaming ´dont touch me´ as he barreled up and down aisles basically threatening fans (ok, yes, for standing). I was so shocked I even emailed Villa, but of course heard nothing back. Totally counter productive approach towards crowd control, just enflamed everyone.

if it makes you feel any better I definitely saw one of theirs getting hauled out just after one of our poor chaps got the roughoused out of the ground, remember commenting at the time it was 1 of theirs and 1 of ours tit for tat....
