Forest Panic Over Leeds Visit?

Feeling intimidated? Well now you can 'txt a steward' as Notts Forest become the latest club to panic over the arrival of Leeds United fans at their stadium.

Not content with the confusing array of ticket restrictions and shutting the pubs (a travesty in my opinion), Nottingham Forest fans have now been given their very own txt line to contact stewards in the event of trouble.

Forest club safety officer Alan Bexon said: 'We thought of the idea after a lady told us that she was afraid to contact stewards about a problem in the stands.'

Is it merely a coincidence that this has happened as Leeds United drop into town, considering that there has already been trouble at the City Ground this year, before the new season had even started? A pitch invasion marred a pre-season friendly between Forest and Trent River neighbours Notts County, a rivalry that I was informed did not actually exist!

Unfortunately, there is no team called "Notts Forest." It is a stupid idea and not done just for your visit. It was introduced at the beginning of the season by some jobsworth.

It was going to be too tough to put"Nottingham Forest" in and keep it within the word counts, give me a break. You lot really are picky! ;)

Notts = One word, Nottingham = One word - how does putting our name correctly take up any more words? :P If you mean characters, then use Nott'm or Nottm then it's acceptable. This texting idea is ridiculous, our safety officer bloke is a complete and utter moron.

I can't believe they've got mobile phones in Nottingham! I bet they are the size of a brick.

You want to try texting a steward at Stockport - they come in groups of 30 and they say shut up and sit down!
