    Is this a very prevalent problem though, or are the instances in the last few weeks a major aberration? A fence about the only cast-iron (ha!) guarantee, but very harsh punitive measures on the people doing it should be tried as a deterrent first. Aside from whatever criminal prosecution they may face, a serious ban from the clubs should do the trick and I say "serious" because I think there is a perception that it's just talk when clubs ban people, that they can't or won't make a serious effort to actually prevent certain individuals from buying tickets and getting into the ground consistently.

    "Good enough for you Grealish, you utter scumbag" - a post I saw on a rare trawl through my Facebook feed. Irish Birmingham fan. So yeah, there's people who'll see a ban as a violation of their own freedom of speech (or some such bull****)

    Do behind-closed-doors bans really work? There seems to be enough of them to suggest not
