Apparently a load of their season ticket holders had to be moved from the middle of their home end because their Ultras wanted that area. Imagine the meltdown on here if that happened.

gruesome...imagine having him facing you for 90mins bellowing into his toy loudspeaker.....proper rubbish.......so glad we never went down this route, id be cringing every game

I hate it at European games. Hardly that 'Ultra' but at FC Zurich the set up was such that you could not tell which team was which as the 'ultras' did not seem to be interested in what was going on on the pitch.

One of them in front of me then (and I can't remember which way round it was) produced a knife and an extremely large exotic cigarette from his undergarments and sock.

There were loads of riot police behind the stand.

I decided to move round to the seats in the second half.

I'll have to stop at this point or I'll go into my Malmo / abandonment / Pontus / Copenhagen anecdote.

this is why i have a lot of respect for Millwall....if anyone there tried to do the same thing theyd be found hanging from the main stand....the day it happens there is the day football has died for good in this country

When it slowly dawns on your that your New Best Mates are, in fact, an absolute bunch of muppets.

Absolute pantomine of a performance from this lot on Saturday, #boybandUltras.

He was quality entertainment but annoyed me for two reasons.

If anybody in the Paddock tried his antics they would have been out, out with no warning. The fact there were two stewards standing right behind him who did nothing was amazing. He even brought his beer in, get caught and came back after a chat.

Secondly he reminded me.of someone and I couldn't place who until somebody mentioned Harry Enfield's Tim, nice but dim.

Hear he was recognised in Clapham after the game but didn't hang about

A friend of mine is a Palace season ticket holder and was one of the fans dislodged.

I think the Ultras "thing" started many years before and they had been able to commandeer a relatively unpopular spot in the corner at the time. They had the backing of the club who said putting the noisy fans in the middle would help the atmosphere.

It sounded like there were long and careful discussions about it and he got quite a good deal out of it in the end (got a very good seat in the upper tier instead, and some other discount or thank you reward)..... I don't know if he could have insisted on hanging on and sitting with the shirtless bloke.
Anyway in typical football fan fashion he was still very unhappy about the whole thing. So yes, I think that's exactly how it might happen if BFC did it to us :)

Drums were banned at GP after a BIAS poll on a number of issues.

There have been quite a few changes in personnel at Brentford since, so things may have changed.

Drums are not listed amongst the things that you can not bring into GP and need to be added ASAP and before we play Palace at home.

Palace "ultras" aren't all bad....
Apparently someone stole DT (from Arsenal Fan TV)'s hat at their game at the Emirates in 2019/20 and gave it to one of them, who dangled it proudly from a rope at the reverse fixture...top banter...

Palace Ultras are a joke, and as for those silly little flags at the start.............
They weren't flags.🎌🤣😅
Bits of plastic stuck to a stick.
The Ultras could not wave theirs quickly enough.Embassing.
That was worse than Fulham clappy things.
The Palace fan in my office was going to get some stick from me if he waved one, but on Friday night he tested positive for Covid and didn't go.
I should have picked one up out of the road, given it to him and said next time you can play catch up.
Tell our club don't even go there with cheap crap like that.
Spend the money on an extra phone in the ticket office instead.

Harry Enfield character Tim used to drink in a pub called the Bat and Ball in Wisborough Green.
Harry had him down to tee.
I had the pleasure of meeting Tim one night before the character evolved.
Proper nice fella and friendly as you can get.

They're basically the Wycombe Wanderers of the upper leagues. Disappointed we didn't sing 'we don't need a f****** drum'.

Might surprise you those flags cost 3 grand
Or at least that's what they put on their funding page

This guy the thread is about is truly a strange character. I didn’t manage to get to the game Saturday but I was in the sports bar Clapham and about 20 mins or so after full time it started to get busier again. Went to the bar to get a pint and this bloke approached me questioning who I supported?! I told him Brentford and his way of speaking was unusual don’t think he was all the ticket, I get he was most likely pissed but still a very odd ball. As I wasn’t at the game Saturday I had no idea who this bloke was and what he was like in the stadium so just find it really funny that it wasn’t just me who had the pleasure of interacting with this odd character. No surprise he scarpered quickly of out the pub there was a lot of Brentford boys about

Reading the comments he started spitting at people during the game. The guy needs to stay away from football matches for a while and grow up.

An absolute berk but provides some amusement for the away fans. If I was a Palace fan having to sit next to him doing that every other week however 🤦‍♂️
