I would like to thank The Great Eckscape for joining the Angels forum, with his very balanced view of things.
My last report was going to be my only comments on the awful events of Saturday, but it would seem that certain people believe that I am a liar, and asked how I can sleep at night!
I can assure you that I sleep with a clear conscience, as the account I gave as I said was factual regarding the events that I witnessed.
I felt I made it very clear as to who I was, and anybody involved would be able to bear witness that I was caught in the middle of things and that I am telling the truth regards my actions on the day, Do I really need to describe all these people???? Just to prove I was there.
By all means, ask the older gentleman and his daughter if they remember me doing what I said I did.
I have no reason to lie, Sadly, there were most definitely wrongs on both sides.
At no point have I condoned any of the violence that I witnessed that day, I only acted as a "peacemaker".
Unfortunately, when things like this happen, peoples emotions run extremely high, and comments are made from both sides, some bad, some sensible, all those involved know the part they played, but I am glad to see that everybody is united in condemning any attack of any kind be it young, old, male or female, we are all there to enjoy the sport and we do shout and holler at each other, it's all part of the fun, but when the final whistle blows, win or lose, we should all be able to shake hands and look forward to the next time we meet.
Unfortunately there is a minority that feel affronted by the banter,and take it very personally, maybe they should learn to accept that it is not directed at them.
In the words of the old adage, IF YOU CAN'T TAKE IT, DON'T GIVE IT.
We are all delighted that the Gentleman is well, and really hope that this doesn't put him off following his grandson's footballing career.
I hope that we can all now move on and enjoy the rest of the season, and support our teams with our hearts and voices.
