I also saw only the aftermath of the incident, but in my experience if you dish out abuse to the opposition you need to be able to receive it in return. There seems to me little point in winding up opposing teams as it usually makes them stronger. I have been watching City for over 50 years now and it's only recently we have had supporters winding up the opposition. I prefer to watch the  game and assess what I see on the field rather than play childish games with opposing fans. I'm not apportioning blame about Saturday, but if City have a group of fans who like to get in the opposition's faces, it will inevitably lead to trouble at some point. Are we entirely blameless for the trouble in games v Halifax, Salford and now Rammy?

Now you once told me, when I mentioned an incident, that LCFC was a friendly club.

Glass Houses please get off your high horse, "I am shocked and saddened by the comments from LFC"? No-one is trying to excuse the situation, there's never any excuse for violence; but from what I saw plenty of LCFC staff, players and supporters waded in to break the fight up. It might be worth bearing that in mind before tarring us all with the same brush.

Two Lancaster City fans were filmed attacking a Ramsbottom supporter after the final whistle but, due to lack of stewards. the Ramsbottom players were left with little option but to help the fan who was the subject of a beating. This was the only reason the players came over the boards - simply to assist. I feel that you need to re-examine your comments and apologise on behalf of Lancaster City for the unruly supporters who caused the incident. As for reporting it - "people in Glass Houses"! Maybe its time the unruly supporters from LCFC were brought to task by the club and publicly dealt with.(Remember pictures don't lie)

Why did all those Rammy fans move round to our lot behind the goal at the end of the game? For a quick exit away from the coaches and train station? Aah, that makes sense  Laughing

Let's just hope those involved on both sides are a bit wiser from the incident and we can all move on and enjoy the football.
