'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Barry Fry Criticised for Leeds & Millwall Slur

Barry Fry has been 'blasted` by Millwall`s fans representative over his comments that suggest early kick-off times for the Lions and the Whites are to save Peterborough.

Both Millwall and Leeds have seen their match times for the away trips, as well as newcomers to League One Leicester City, with the Posh supremo believing that there is something worth saving in Peterborough, and that the 3 clubs in question have a 'reputation` that warrants these sanctions.
Mr Fry, who I to be fair, usually like, said:
"We want to protect the city of Peterborough. Leeds, Leicester and Millwall fans have a reputation, and we want to give them less time in the pubs before kick-off."

Peter Garston, the fans representative on the Millwall Board of Directors was less than impressed by Mr Fry`s comments:

"Once again the majority of Millwall fans have been scape-goated for the actions of the minority of football fans generally.

"We are copping the brunt heavily for a problem that is football-wide, not just League One or Millwall.

"The right and fair way around the issues would be better policing and more efficient stewarding employing a common sense approach to handling football fans."

Vital Leeds Opinion: 'We all know why games are changed, why Leeds fans were met at the railway station on their way to the Millwall match. We knew why these games were changed to early kick offs. The problem comes in that the issue should have been left as is. To highlight the issue by suggesting some form of battle defence against the entire city is required was bizarre and utterly pointless.

One hopes that Mr Fry will apologise to Leeds, Millwall and even Leicester City fans, who up until now I didn`t even realise had a reputation for destroying P`boro!`

Pudding Face dont know what he's on about..As
Leeds and Millwall have enough 3pm kick offs that pass with no problem. What you don't need is a joker like Fry stirring up trouble before we have even gone there.
It is a PR exercise, Barry Fry knows there is nothing in Peterborough worth saving.......all smoke and mirrors
Big No 9
When we visited Peterboro' a couple of seasons ago we had just sat down in a pub and the police came and demanded we leave! There was no trouble or no problems - then they insisted the 10 of us (most of us well over 45!) were escorted the long way round to the away turnstiles!
Ive been to Peterborough a few times-its a ***** hole lol
Richard Head, to avoid trouble at E R suggest B Fry stays in his little town down south

Barry Fry is a tw*t. He should SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!
This will not prevent drinking beforehand. It only takes 1 hours to Peterborough direct on the East Coast Main Line, and the supporters will merely take their beer on the train. Why would there be any trouble at poor little Peterborough? It's not as if they are rivals or anything
You lot will have more trouble scoring a

Peterborough fans attacked women when Lincoln went there last season. Big fat Bazza wants to get his own house in order before he sets about other clubs fans. MacAnthony's puppet now is all Fry is.
I think Barry Fry will be more than happy that his comments have got under your skin.
History will sadly always follow clubs with problems.
ask Mr Fry which club was investigated last season for bottle throwing! His feckless idiots!
Maybe he nicked your shirt...!!!..Come on children,put your dummys back in..

good old barry....never short of something to say, most of it irrelevent it has to be said though.............
Peterborough can't get any more damaged, all though the Pizza place behind the home terrace does an awesome kebab, apart from that it look worse than grimsby!
