But the A96 doesn't come out at the south of the city so the sheep transporters will still get out and down the road. Needs a plan B.

Barriers are up inside the Broomloan Front this evening. Not sure if they will remain in place or are still to be removed after the Brondby game.

When the barriers are up - people in the Sandy Jardine have to walk round past the Copland, down past the main stand to go up past the wee Rangers club to get their busses - instead of just walking down past the Broomloan
No they don’t. I walked right past it last Thursday after the Brondby game.

Was that because the Brondby supporters were locked in for an hour at full time - they normally don’t lock in supporters in Scottish league games

Can we access Edmiston drive from Copland? Remember a few weeks back it was shut off, any updates appreciated,
Barriers were up against brondby but police weren’t stopping anyone going thru

Aberdeen fans always get kept back
Season before pandemic they had barriers up for certain games, completely blocking access from outside Govan stand to Broomloan road end. We had to walk the whole way round the stadium and up Edmiston drive on to Helen street to catch the bus. Pain in the fecking hole, especially as I can't walk far or fast!

You’re still able to walk past after the game. I’ve never once had walk round round the stadium.

The only time I had to was before a game against Celtic, never after.

Aye I remember one in particular v Hibs when it absolutely pished with rain. I can't quite remember if it was way in or way out but we got soaked.

Sure we put 6 past them though so, no harm done :)

This drives me mad.

Why do we make 10000 people enter into a crush zone at the rear of the Copeland to accommodate quite often a couple of hundred away fans. Somebody will get hurt there one day.

As a retired cop I was involved in policing loads of games without the need of these stupid overkill barriers and I don't really remember any real assaults or criminality at the away end it was always easily policed. Absolute overkill

Costs less to have cops put them up during the day rather than the numbers needed to a cordon and escort.
