The most unnecessary police line ever?

Oddly enough I had friends on both sides of that line on Saturday.

Look at that woman in the red coat (centre of picture). She's definitely 'up for it'. Trouble brewing, no doubt about it...

Hahaha. Is this what they call targeted advertising?

Yeah. There's lots of that. The club was set up by and for Manchester United supporters after all.

But there's really no problem with it. As I must explain on here every two weeks or so.

Unbelievable, wasn't it? Lancashire's finest doing their best to annoy everyone in the ground. Fans were mixing all round the ground, but for some reason the police feel it necessary to make a stand.

The police insisted on the segregation, and stated that the main stand and Pilling Lane end (shown on the photos) were for the 200 or so home fans, with the FC United fans given the other half of the ground, which is more than enough room, but that's not the point. They tried to enforce this with about four officers, a few hired stewards who couldn't really care less, and no fences. Unsurprisingly this didn't do the trick when the teams swapped ends, but for some reason the police tried to "hold" the Pilling Lane end for about 10 minutes of the second half, before seeing sense and letting the fans stand in the empty stand instead of right next to it.

At times, it seemed that segregation was also enforced between Chorley's defence and FCUM's forwards, who scored three but could have had as many as they'd wanted. Fortunately they chose to ease off and, in a move somewhere between patronising and touching, brought on Chorley hero Phil Power, who starred for us in the Conference 18 years ago, and is now FC's assistant manager, to another ex-Chorley player Karl Marginson.

We look like we're going down already, despite a massively increased playing budget from last season. FCUM will go up easily enough I should think, they were the best team I've seen, above Skelmersdale United.

So why are your cops still wearing those easter eggs on their heads? Chasing a thief down an alley it must be hell ballancing that unpractical piece on thy head.

And what's with some wearing it and other not, is it a clique thing?

What's the woman cop wearing? It looks like one of those Peruvian hats.

I've always thought police women's uniforms were specifically designed to avoid love affairs at work. Not even Miss World would look sexy in one of those.
