As for the policing of people using concession tickets, I spoke to an old school mate who was manning the disabled access door and he said the order had come directly from Steve Gibson to catch as many people as possible. I saw a fair few get caught with kids tickets before the game.

It really does beggar belief and after being a loyal,passionate Boro fan since the early sixties the influence of over officious little Hitlers on and off the pitch XXXXXXes me right off.

The referee and these puffed up, power mad little punks are making me wonder whether the game has lost its appeal completely. The refereeing and the stewarding today are symptomatic of an over bearing, small minded attention seeking mind set that is all pervasive in modern football.

Well I sit in East Upper and saw the three green coats in the heart of the Red Faction and I thought oh FFS!, here we go again.

When these lads started organising a vocal enclave in the South East Corner it did my napper in to see them surrounded by a phalanx of luminous clad stewards, which indicated to me that the club viewed the burgeoning emergence of a passionate, youthful, noisy group of Boro fans as somehow an existential threat to the peace and tranquillity of a Riverside that had evolved into a peaceful and tranquil as a library.

They seemed to be viewed and treated as the enemy instead of being encouraged and assisted in their quest of turning the Riverside into a proper English football ground that the rest of the world so admires.[:(]

the question I ponder every time something like this happens is what has happened since red faction were given the go ahead to do what they want basically? The answer is no trouble whatsoever, probably a lot less trouble actually than there was, a better atmosphere and an upturn in results. If the stewards just left it all alone it would be fine as has been proven for the last few years. Anyone who disagrees is on a complete wind up

I have no problem with passionate fans. I am one. RF are good for the club and the atmosphere in the ground but they would be far more appreciated without the flares and the drum. The flares add nothing of value. The drum just gives other fans something to criticise. Itís like we need a drum to get a song going sometimes and it seems artificial.

Big difference without red faction. A lot of people enjoy the atmosphere they create and perhaps if they were still there later on in the game banging the drum and getting behind the team, the crowd might not have become some nervy.

RF spent the rest of the game going mad in the concourse.

Someone needs to have a word with the stewards because ultimately it will have a negative impact on attendances and potentially results imo.

I disagree, atmosphere would be generated elsewhere. I just don't think other fans struggle to sing along with their indecipherable songs. I'm not sure what a bunch of chavs bouncing about singing "lets go effing mental" contributes to the atmosphere in the ground? They regularly let off flares then moan about the stewards paying extra attention to them.

I think as a fan base weíve become too reliant on RF, itís as if fans wait for them to start things now. Ideally north stand needs to contribute more to the atmosphere. Strange how the place you sit dictates how active the noise is.

Other teams do fine without them. Obviously they served a good purpose during the bad times and continue to get the atmosphere moving, but when they are quiet the rest of the fans then stay quiet so they can lead it in both directions.

the only decent atmosphere is at away games, home games are seriously lacking in it. You shouldn't be able to hear what coaches and players are shouting (and Pulis' whistling) like you could on saturday, it was like a park game at times

It was thrown from behind the big cat banner, and it was emitting green flames, if that's a smokebome ok but its clearly dangerous.

I do chortle at the quote "it's just a bunch of kids". Like we weren't all teenagers and young adults at one point, with very little responsibility and lived & breathed MFC.

These guys put a lot of time, effort and money into creating atmospheres at the Riverside. They're not everyone's cup of tea granted but I appreciate the extent they go to. I'm sure there was a viable reason for the stewarding on Saturday but I hope it doesn't deter their efforts for the remainder of the season. You can see the appreciation in the players at the end of games.

"I disagree, atmosphere would be generated elsewhere. I just don't think other fans struggle to sing along with their indecipherable songs. I'm not sure what a bunch of chavs bouncing about singing "lets go effing mental" contributes to the atmosphere in the ground? They regularly let off flares then moan about the stewards paying extra attention to them."

Atmosphere would be generated elsewhere? Really? Where? I don't see anyone else in the ground that is rocking the place? Do you remember the Mowbray years when the ground was a morgue? I would put the improvement in atmosphere since those days squarely down to the Red Faction. I haven't seen anyone else contributing.

And a small point but there has never ever been a 'flare' set off at the Riverside. Smoke, yes. At least get the terminology correct as a flare is a lot more dangerous than smoke

So the atmosphere at the Brighton game was down to the 20 or so red faction boys? Not the other 30 odd thousand Boro fans at the make or break game.

I will start by saying that Red Faction are a brilliant group of supporters who have had a real positive effect on mine and many others match day experience. They have some good, original chants and have been responsible for some excellent banners and displays over the years. From my seat to the left of them it looked like the stewards were trying to move on some young lads who were stood in an over crowded row and obviously some of them weren't in the correct seats. The stewards have every right to attempt to move them and surely had been told to do this by their superiors. There has been accusation of heavy handedness by the stewards, I didn't see this but that's not to say it didn't happen. Despite this, I think the reaction by the group to all walk down to the concourse and start behaving boisterously was to the detriment of the team who no doubt value their support as well astheir fellow fans and all in all quite petulant. Every makes mistakes and wrong decisions sometimes (stewards and football fans included). Hopefully RF are back to doing what they do best against Brighton. UTB

RF donít feel and have never implied that they are somehow superior to other supporters, weíre just a bunch of lads trying to increase the noise and colour in the Riverside.

As for Saturday the stewards came in being aggressive so the group removed themselves from the terraces to avoid trouble/escalation.

Do people honestly think that we spend hours & hours of our free time and thousands of pounds of own money creating displays/banners just to cause some chew on a Saturday afternoon.

From my position in the South West Upper, I watched the events unfold on Saturday.

My immediate conclusion was to say to my mate, "Looks like the stewards are at it again, spoiling the lads day out"

They created more "chew" than they are there to prevent and it was utterly ridiculous for them to get involved with a group of supporters who were simply out to enjoy themselves. It appeared that nobody was complaining other than the stewards themselves.

'So the atmosphere at the Brighton game was down to the 20 or so red faction boys?' That was a big game. What about the atmosphere when we're playing the likes of Burton. [|)]

I agree with mr Isaac
Over the top stewarding , no need for it .
BUT
By walking out en mass you let them win .
Back at it next match lads , don't give in to a couple of stewards who think they are the big I am .

Sit right under the RF, slightly to the right of the disabled supporters. I cannot get my head around how the RF are perceived as an annoyance. The racket they make is most welcome in an otherwise sanitised stadium. It mightnít be to everyoneís taste but Brentford and Brighton aside itís no Ayresome Park. Opinion is opinion but we all support the same team do we not? I look forward to seeing/hearing them back against Brighton and going forward everyone else. Colour, noise and presence. Iím 43 by the way so no daft kid just appreciatative of the efforts. UTFB

RF impact on atmosphere at games has been great and very welcome.

Their continued use of smoke bombs/flares and odd incident of damage has not and is not.

Stop the stupid behavior and stewards may note on their backs so much. Can only assume it's immaturity from their members or just can;t handle their beer.

Just bang the drum and sing, not difficult. Or shouldn't be.

Red Faction are brilliant. If noise, colour, vibrancy and expressing feelings towards your team is a problem, then clear off to the library and read Bleak House[V]
