Once again, it appears that those in charge of Health & Safety at the Walkers Stadium are determined to turn our club into a laughing stock.
The following message appeared on Sheffield United’s official site regarding tomorrow’s game. Ridiculous as it might seem it is not a wind up or joke, but a genuine instruction:
“Blades fans intending to support us on Wednesday night should note that – on the instruction of Leicester City – banners of any type are banned from the Walkers Stadium.
Supporters wishing to take flags into the home of the Foxes require a fire certificate to be produced on the day of the match, upon entering the stadium.
In an effort to support Blades fans, United Safety Officer Steve Hicks has offered any fans who need a safety certificate for their flags to bring the flags to the club to be certificated and this information will be passed on to Leicester City.
Any fan who already possesses a fire certificate for their flag can email the certificate and a picture of their flag to firstname.lastname@example.org for Steve’s attention. He will then forward them to the relevant person at Leicester City.”
This would appear to be the latest sideswipe at the Fosse Boys, who were recently refused entry to the ground with their new flag.
Football – RIP.
