FSF calling to Bristol City fans

Calling all Bristol City fans that were at the Cup game at Portsmouth.

The Football Supporters' Federation have been getting complaints from City fans about their treatment from Portsmouth police and about the stewarding within the stadium (as a Pompey fan I use the word stadium loosely).

I will be taking up all complaints up at a local level with both the police and PFC but I would advise any of you who feel you have a grievance to write to the Club or the police yourselves.

If writing to the Club, the Safety Officer is Derek Stone (I would also copy it to the Chairman, Peter Storrie), Portsmouth Football Club, Rodney Road, Fratton, Portsmouth. PO4 8SX.

Please copy your letters to us at faircop@fsf.org.uk or to me personally at kgmpfc2003@hotmail.co.uk.

If you prefer you can text the FSF on 07599 842477. Besides protesting at a local level we do take these problems up at a national level and compile countrywide dossiers, which show trends and 'hotspots'.

Were any of you amongst the supporters that were 'forced' to get off at Fratton station? Were any of you issued with Section 27s? Did anyone get any police numbers? Were your own 'spotters' on hand at the time? Can anyone corroborate the 'dog' allegations (we have photographic evidence of one)? If you saw anything then let us know.

Was a big police presence on sat. Little patches of trouble on goldsmith ave by the station though, esp after the game, so I for one am glad they were out in force!

The only trouble I saw was the guy in white in the South Stand near the City fans. He kept getting lead away, then brought back, then lead away again.

Saw a lot of City Fans Hooded and wearing Scarfes across their faces refusing to show their faces to have them photographed/videoed. Sorry, but as the only thing visible was a grey hood and a pair of eyes, co-operating and letting the police take pictures, (so as to identify any known trouble makers), i dont see a problem, yet some of these fans were pushing the police as opposed to co-operating, so maybe some of these moaning actually asked for trouble?

I have a short walk from home to FP and was shocked to see the nature of the police presence. A bloke in front of me was roughly pushed off the road onto the pavement by a copper - no attempt to ask him to move off the road which I am sure hw would have done as he looked a mild-mannered little geezer -he looked genuinely shocked to have been manhandled as if he'd already been convicted of some major crime. Police horses are also a liability as they tend to panic people, what with them being big muscly things. I also get a bit left wing when I see the police randomly videoing groups of people walking to a football match. I think I may spend next saturday videoing coppers coming in and out of the cop shop down town. Not illegal, surely...All seemed a bit heavy handed to me,

...Anyhow there was a BIG police presance on Saturday. When I walked over Fratton Station foot bridge @ 1:15 (on the way to the pub) there were maybe 10 police on the bridge .. normally 2 at that time .. didn't see any dogs though...
