Football fans asked to shhhhhh

by | 24th, February 2009

MIDDLESBROUGH FC has asked its own fans to be QUIETER during games. Boro supporters were handed letters telling them only to make a noise when their team scores. Er, that might be difficult – Boro haven’t scored a league goal since 10 January.

The note came from Boro’s safety officer, Sue Watson. She sounds like a lot of fun:

“I am receiving more and more complaints from our own fans about both the persistent standing and the constant banging and noise coming from the back of this stand.

“Please stop. Make as much noise as you like when we score, but this constant noise is driving some fans mad.”

Constant noise at an English football ground? Surely not.

Madness gone mad.
