Always disliked Wire since the 2009 CC semi at Widnes.

Coming off the train there was fighting all the way down into the town, and then again afterwards them going way beyond banter winding us up about the result.

As with all clubs the vast majority of their fans are brilliant and it’s only something I noticed during our most recent trip there in April 2018. There were no problems at the Nou Camp but I certainly noticed it during that game I mentioned and there was a football hooligan element to their support. I’m not saying Wire are blameless, ultimately we don’t know what’s gone on really but from what I’ve seen myself when going there, I wouldn’t be laying all the blame at Warrington's door yet.


Yes I was about to say this. At Nou Camp we sat amongst them rather than with the Wigan fans and there were attempts to provoke. There was plenty of pushing and shoving and general dickheadedness around the bars too which I just put down to them being French :D

That said it doesn’t excuse any fans resorting to violence, it’s much easier to just walk away or report it to stewards/police/club officials.

No, but I have just been reading your board. I've never seen such claptrap as some of the posts on there. I wasn't intending commenting, preferring to take the view that it's better left to the judiciary and any ongoing investigations. However, the level of blame apportioning on your board is utterly ridiculous. Wigan, who weren't even playing, have come in for more criticism from some than your own club, team or fans! :shock:

Strange that the referee is getting the blame. Because of the production you could clearly hear the referee talking to the players all through the game, it's hardly his fault that they took no notice is it?

He sent two players to the sin bin early on, which should have been a warning to the players to calm down. McIlorum can feel very hard done by in that instance, he was merely trying to pull Hill away from the Catalan player.

It truly must be the end times when. Rogues is speaking the most sense.
We can be bold enough to make a stand and do battle for our views and beliefs. But we must strive to be mature enough not to resort to unnecessary personal attacks upon people with opposing views.

Everything is the fault of ref, dirty cheating cat players or Wigan. Wire were doing everything to slow the game down the doctor seemed to show up when they needed him to interrupt Cats. Wire were warned for 5 high shots in second half the ref called them for it. They played the spoiling tactics like their opponent

The club and fans should be calling out the fans for their behaviour. Reading some comments the fans are a cross between the UN peace keepers and mother thereasa 'for God's sake think of the children'.i can't believe that Ratchford was trying to go and thank the fans.

£10k is pocket change to Simon Moran. I'm not sure what the answer is but a fine will have no impact whatsoever.
