There's a chance that it's actually a UEFA requirement. They have so many that I can't be arsed looking through them all but they do, I think, have them even for hoardings etc.

I'm sure it is. Whoever mandates it, it sucks. How about a rule that they *must not* obstruct the view of the pitch?...

It's a UEFA thing. I've definitely seen Liverpool and Celtic have to empty the front few rows because of it.

Yes, same at Ibrox for their European games.

The advertising boards didn't look any higher than average at Warsaw?

Did anyone manage to buy a match day programme? I didn't see any for sale in the away end? If anyone knows how to get one I would really appreciate it.

No, but I did buy a glass for tap water for £1.95😂
Didn’t see any programme sellers but the isolation and containerisation of away fans was stifling to the extreme.

Yep freezing your bollocks off waiting to be let out to then be effectively kettled and not allowed to walk back to your hotel for another hour was fucked up.

Couldn't be arsed with that shite any more, it's not the 80s, and if that's what playing in Europe is going to be like they can stick it.

It did look a bit ambush alley in the dark on the way back, but there's 1500 officers, all dressed like ninja turtles, just whack us in an escort and use the sticks you were itching to in any event.

The kettling at the top of the drive way made zero sense given there were 20 odd horses, scores of vans and hundreds of police, without a Legia scrote anywhere near.

I hope we lock them in for 3 days. We had a shit time of it because they're a bunch of retrograde skin head twats. Fuck em.

Yeah doesn’t sound too good. Almost glad I was in the Legia end. That was strange too. I didn’t understand my ticket so was just allowed to wander to the very back of the stand and mill about with a great view of the pitch.

I can only guess that this is what happens weekly and is routine.

Everyone I have seen have behaved fine, so I understand the confusion with the police’s attitude.

3 days I’d deport each and everyone of them that turns up at villa park.  Ps big👍 to our stewards who turned up and assisted despite having to deal with brain dead poles

Why deport?

The Polish have been marvellous in all the places I have been. The Villa fans I have encountered all have enjoyed their stay. Some were even asking how to say Polish numbers to make it easier for the staff.

Policing is s different matter.
