Making a mountain out of a molehill?

Yes, talking about pitch invasions. I’m sorry but what is it with there always being something for pundits/media to make a big deal about and complain about? Pitch invasions have literally always happened but now they are being made to be a terrible thing??

Yes the players shouldn’t be getting attacked 100% out of order. But don’t try and stop this. Just got to trust people do the right thing but it is almost impossible to police anyway.

Next thing that will be complained about is the flares/smoke which tbf have always been around in Spain for example, but interested to see then turn up here now. How do fans get them in the grounds!?

Yeah the Villa goalie incident has been blown out of proportion. Nothing really happened to him.

The Vieira incident was similar, it was actually Vieira dishing out the damage lol (justifiably tbf).

The one that was bad was in the Forest game, but that was an outlier.

The issue with pitch invasions is that one day, a player will get knifed.

Zero tolerance should be afforded.

Pitch invasions have not always happened. At most grounds there are signs saying it is illegal to go on the pitch. They have occured sporadically over the years and typically at lower league level and they had become accepted.

Any fool that remembers the bad old days could see that we'd get to where we are now and things will get worse if nothing changes.

I've invaded a few pitches myself, many years ago.

No excuse whatsoever but I'm just giving a bit of background to the incident.

Looked like he just got shoved a couple of times from where i was, Gerrard has done worse things to DJ's and got away with it.

No excuse, and yet all you have done is attempt to excuse it. He had it coming because he timewasted in a football match. Disgraceful position to take.

I explained it, I didn't excuse it.

Point deductions against the clubs for failing to control their fans should come into play

Maybe, or X amount of games with no fans, they may become self policing to a degree and less harsh on the club. They'd still be punished through lack of sales and refunds.

Why can’t you make a comment without linking it to Liverpool as tenuously as possibly?

You clearly implied it was deserved. You can deny as much as you want but it's written in black and white.

You need to read what I wrote again, I explained reasons why someone felt the urge to give him a shove

I didn’t condone it but if you’re going to taunt people for 45 minutes in a supercharged environment like there was yesterday then some nutter is likely to react.

Absolutely no comparison to the Billy Sharp or Vieiria incidents
