Police Abuse Powers As Newcastle Sunderland Derby Kick-Off Moved
The Newcastle Sunderland derby date and time has been confirmed for the match at St.James’ Park.
Predictably but sadly, we have been landed with the latest in a long line of rubbish lunchtime kick-off times for the most anticipated match of the season.
What many fans see as an over the top use of the powers the police possess, denies supporters a much more preferable traditional 3pm kick-off.
It would appear unlikely that we will ever see a decent kick-off time unless something drastically changes.
As we reported yesterday, there have also been meetings between the [intlink id=”38071″ type=”post”]police and Sunderland fan representatives[/intlink] where it has been revealed that the police could force all their fans to travel on official buses with tickets dispensed en route to St.James’ Park.
Though a final decision is still to be made.
