Yes, I think we probably do.

There were two copper vans securing the site of half a smashed up plastic cup on Pinwell Road.

But worse than the fans (so far) was this really unfriendly copper with a clear lack of social skills. He's that sort of breed that give the police a bad name and reputation. Very inclined to lodge a complaint.

Albion fans trying to get into station car park (now Lewes is becoming established as an nice easy option to get to the Amex) versus commuters trying to leave + Police = chaos

Get used to this in Lewes now the Stadium is open - yet again Brighton passing its crap on to Lewes District! Why can't the supporters be directed through Brighton or at least not allowed to leave Lewes Station and go directly to Falmer.

Will only happen when Palace or maybe a few other Clubs supported by tossers are playing at Falmer, like Millwall, Leeds, etc. Generally though, a few footie fans will help counter-balalnce the overwhelming middleclass-ness of the town...

I was out and about last night near the Station and although there were a large number of footie fans milling around, particularly outside the Lansdown, they seemed perfectly happy and not causing any bother. Loads of police in attendance as well, controlling the situation pretty good from what I could see. As long as it stays like that, i.e. calm, then I think traders would welcome the additional income....even us middleclass....

Oh God Forbid, what a shame these people are bring trade into the town and spending money in our shops.
What a shame that we have such a fantastic rail link that we now have to put up with PEOPLE IN OUR TOWN!!!!!!!!!
I think alot of you need to take a long look of your self, we aren't living in the slums, there is a fantastic stadium in Brighton which has created a lot of jobs for a range of people.
Brighton have an excellent link with Lewes FC as well as their coaching in the community scheme which has helped out many local schools.
One day this forum will not be filled with utter rubbish.

Well done FS. Fully support you - the more money spent in the town the better. OK its gets a bit roudy but so what? And I am no supporter of football - I hate the game (sorry all those Rookies ouit there).

I just think it's a shame that two local teams seem to need so much police time,long gone are the days of a friendly game,according to my youth Brighton station was also crammed with coppers...it looked like overkill to me.

I've been to both the Liverpool and Gillingham matches where the police presence was low key and there was no trouble. The atmosphere was pretty friendly. At the Leeds match apparently, witty chants were applauded by the opposing crowds and it was all fairly good natured.
However Crystal Palace are Brighton's greatest rivals and there is animosity between them going back to the 70's. They have not met in league matches for 6 years but the chant at Brighton of 'stand up if you hate Palace' says it all.
The police would have been much more heavily criticised for not being properly prepared when they knew there was potential for trouble.

Shame that Lewes needs heavy policing on Friday and Saturday nights as people can't go out an enjoy a sherbert or two responsibly.
Or even the Police presence required on bonfire night. I would say bonfire night is overkill especially if you end up any where by the train station
