I wanted to put this in the main thread where the discussion is about the stewarding yesterday versus Man Utd but I fear this may have got lost in the replies and I would really appreciate some help.
I have seen the video from block 113 & this was the exact treatment that I was subjected to before the Burnley game. BEFORE!
I didn't even make it to my seat for kick off as I questioned why I would need to show my ticket to one of the bully boys after already being searched at the turnstiles.
They threw me out before the game even kicked off because of this, no violence from myself, not even bad language. It was when they got me to the exits that they were talking about getting my ticket off me (which was in my pocket) so I started to struggle as they have no right to do that. This was when they took me outside, put me face down on the floor, broke my watch in the meantime and also, one of the idiots put his foot on my head.
I spent from 20:45 until 02:00 in a cell in Forest Gate police station because of all this.
Now what did I do to deserve it? Nothing, they're just on a power trip.
What I did see when I was brought back up from the floor, was two people videoing the event on their phones! I asked them straight away to put the clips online as I know I can use them for a compensation claim & a complaint, but I'm yet to find either.
I didn't want to pop this on here, but I'm hoping that there's at least one of you good people out there who will be able to help?
