    Hx 2 Horsham 1

    Guys and gals - the tweets are the views of one or two individuals. Social media is not fact - and rarely does it reflect the opinions of the majority (just check any political nonsense on twitter for example). But it is a good place for people who struggle with normal face-to-face communication to voice their views or prejudices in a safe environment, especially after the event. So - I'd ignore and move on. Responding just legitimises the debate with people who have a lot of time on their hands to get in the last word - so probably will (generally 20-something media graduates and the like!). I suspect the majority of Horsham fans (and players) simply felt they'd had a hard day at the office but felt nothing threatening - certainly there were plenty in the bar chatting with the Urchin faithful after the game. BUT - and I have been meaning to post this for a while - I do think there are one or two individuals at The Bridge whose language and attitude is simply not acceptable. There is one bloke on the Eastside (been coming for a year or so I think), and another on The Hill who I witnessed for the first time yesterday whose constant (and vile) abuse of the officials and opposition players is simply unfunny and must put many people off. Both are in the 50+ age group. I actually left the Hill at half time because of the latter bloke. Note that none of this was specifically directed at Horsham fans (nor the lady physio for that matter) - but it's not a good advert for the club or for new visitors. I'm no snowflake. Passion is important and well placed insults and swearing are all part of the game, especially if done humorously. In fact a new fan mentioned to me that he'd heard banter on the Eastside that he'd not heard in years at West Ham and will be coming back for sure. But I do think we fans (especially the readership of the forum who tend to be relatively balanced) need to self-regulate some of these newcomers. This, I think, is much more worthy of debate than some random/lone Horsham fan's comments on twitter.

    Hx 2 Horsham 1

    Myself and Ann have also seen comments on twitter and i was standing in the area myself for some of the second half. The Horsham fans were asked not to cover advertising with their flag but were not asked to move anywhere else as has been hill is not exclusively dedicated to home fans. No foul or abusive language towards either set of fans in that section was seen or heard and banter seemed friendly rather than threatening, unless your offended by the Beatles yellow submarine song. It all reads on twitter as sour grapes from a team and fans who believed they were going to win.

    They have obviously forgotten what a real pitch looks like, as they have a 3G/4G pitch now! 😂

    They didn't have a shot on target before the red card - not a rose tinted opinion, but a fact

    Old Towner. Were you actually at the game. Slippery slope not on today's performance.We were well I the game until Billy Big Bollox ref makes an appalling decision and sends billy off for simulation when he was clearly fouled. Anybody who watches Billy regularly knows the one thing he isnt is a diver. The incompetent linesman ruled out a perfectly good goal by Junior when he was never in a million years off side. Fans on this forum really should start going to games before writing negative posts on here.
