Apart from the one steward who actually got off his arse and got hold of the numpty, the rest there should be taken to task, for letting him on the pitch and the piss poor response once he did.

Half are just uni students earning a bit of cash and making up the allocated steward numbers, when you look closely at the actual prevention of this happening, and the staff used in stopping it, it’s inadequate to stop this sort of thing.

We had a fan run on the pitch against Forest a few seasons ago, he shoved someone in the back.  Didn’t he get a ban?

Agreed, unless you are going to put fences back up or spend a considerable amount on even more stewards/policing a random nutter will always find a way onto the pitch.  Also, whats to stop some deranged, desperate fan doing it at a rivals ground etc?

Punishments need to be harsher for the idiots invading the pitch.

Yes, you can. 

One of the key responsibilities of the stewards is to stop people going on the pitch.

Some form of investigation (I am led to believe the FA is responsible for this sort of thing) would need to be carried out regarding the club's stewarding policy, the numbers on duty, the training they receive etc.

Any fan that runs onto the pitch should be given a custodial sentence for trespass, regardless of whether or not they commit a violent act.

We live in violent times and people need to recognise the impact of their actions.

Mindless cowardly act of thuggery that reflects poorly on football, easy to say it’s an isolated incident however when fans find it “funny” you have to despair at some of the fans associated to the game.

Sad that some posters think that's funny. That lunatic could have had a knife - would that have been funny as well?

Short arse with a flat cap minces on to the pitch, and throws a punch at Grealish and misses - funny.

Short arse mincer with socks rolled down scores, and bags 3 points to put Villa in touch of the play-off places - not funny at all.

The choices facing the club to prevent this from ever happening is putting fences in front of the fans or at the pitch side having a steward every 5 yards. 

The guy has ran out from the equivalent of our North Stand, an area where less stewards would be needed. I personally think the steward that got him on the pitch has done as well as can be expected.

Won't lie.

I enjoyed it.

if you enjoy somebody getting punched from behind for no reason, there’s something wrong with you . . . 

Lets hope it never happens to one of your loved ones ay.
