At most away games West Ham fans are just let out without segregation. You just use your common sense.

If people are predisposed to causing trouble they will regardless.

Channelled over the small bridge beyond that one, but from there down onto the road that joins that stream of fans and on to Stratford

There were a lot of Norwich fans in Hackney Wick before the game. They seemed to have claimed the German deli area as their own. They kept themselves to themselves and were good natured enough. But if this is a sign of things to come then Hackney Wick could become a possible flash-point if it starts to attract more of the moodier away fan.

Is the German Deli open again? Thought it had closed down.

I'm not sure if the German Deli was open as I was on the other side of the road. There did seem to be a number of away fans congregating in that area so I assume somebody was serving them beer.

That's a bit of an overreaction, isn't it?

The policing at the bowl leaves a lot to be desired. why do we let away fans out at the same time as home fans ?
I walked over the bridge and then under the flyover en route to the cARPENTERS. I Was joined by the Norwich fans who outnumbered us hammers 4-1 . no police around. luckily they went straight on to the stop go boards and I went under the railway bridge. why after 3 seasons is it so poorly policed ?

You ever been to an away match Hammerman?
Everyone gets let out at the end of games, home and away together. Rarely is there trouble.

German deli has gone - it's now a cafe that had a DJ outside and they had one of the old program huts from the Boleyn that they seemed to be serving food from as well.

Doesn't seem to matter really, we all end up unsegregated and at Stratford station at the same time anyway........

That’s what happens at football now. Rare for away fans to be held back and quite right too.

Just because fans of opposing teams meet each other it doesn’t mean they will fight.

Why the surprise. At UP they always let the away fans out at the same time, even spurs in the later years. Millwall apart.

Those who want it will hang around any way, so why not make its harder to have a row by making it harder to spot who you need to thump by mingling everyone together.

I haven't been to an away game for ages as cant get tickets apart from brighton this season when I was in the brighton end. west ham left same time as brighton but there were some police around unlike at the bowl and the walk over the bridge.

it will kick off badly one day. man utd and palace due at the bowl soon and I would expect better from the security arrangements for these matches.
