Away allocation is now 1662, good to hear that the club are listening to the fans for a change. 

The CCTV is incredibly good, some of the best available out there and can spot a loose thread on your jumper. 

No hiding place for any unacceptable behaviour now, although I’ve heard there will also be microphones being installed that can help with hearing exactly what has been said by who, strategically placed around the ground.

Only in the away section :lol:

Incorrect. 

These cameras have been in force in the away section for a year or 2. 

They’re now expanded to other problematic parts of the stadium.

Installing microphones? Haha ffs

Perhaps if people could behave themselves at a football match, measures like this wouldn't be required.

Before anyone starts, theres Nothing wrong with atmosphere at games but football matches arent places where you just do as you please and say/sing what you want. 

I'd hazard a guess the people who complain about this are those who would get caught doing something they know they shouldn't be doing.

I’ve seen similar arguments condoning mass government surveillance.

What is there to fear from these measures?

Privacy. 

No doubt something that will be a thing of the past. 

We should be pointing the finger at the people who can't behave like a reasonable human being, not the clubs. 

What measures would you take?

They are not mutually exclusive. 

Treating every fan as a potential criminal or “unreasonable human” isn’t something football fans should support.

Correct.  Imagine going to a game with Vanderark?  You would get a row for chewing chewing gum.  And imagine coughing during the game.  My goodness, that would be sacriledge.  Poor behaviour and something that wouldn't happen in a squash court in ………. Hampshire. OOOOOh.

Someone will need to reply to this as VA has me on block seemingly.  Can give but canny take type of guy.

I feel like that ship has already sailed. This is just another further measure.

The camera has the technology to pin point someone when it’s absolutely necessary, I’m led to believe it will be focused on areas of the stand and not constantly panning, it’ll only be used when an incident is witnessed or reported. 

The microphones will be used again, only when something needs to be heard, so if you don’t do or say anything wrong, there’s absolutely nothing to worry about, just treat it like any other cctv camera in the world and ignore it.

First they came for the football fans, but I did not speak up as I wasn't a football fan
