The full table of division two arrests last season looks like this
1 Millwall 93 2 Swansea City 72 3 Bristol City 52 4 Stoke City 49 5 Peterborough United 47 6 Swindon Town 41 7 Bristol Rovers 33 8 Wigan Athletic 27 9 Reading 25 10 Wrexham 24 11 Oldham Athletic 19 12 Bournemouth 16 13 Luton Town 13 14 Northampton Town 13 15 Oxford United 13 16 Port Vale 13 17 Rotherham 13 18 Walsall 10 19 Notts County 7 20 Brentford 6 21 Colchester United 6 22 Cambridge United 5 23 Wycombe Wanderers 4 24 Bury 0.
In total, 3,391 people were arrested last season on football-related offences. These offences include things such as drink related (almost a third of them) disorderly behaviour and running on the pitch.
Should Swansea be worried about these figures? 72 arrests from 46 games makes an average of one and a half people per game. If that is for drunkeness only then is it a real problem? We do not have figures as to why these people were arrested so we are not going to make comment on them here.
Maybe you have your own opinions? If so, vent them on the Message Board. I would guess personally that as an away fan, the Vetch is not the most welcoming of place and like any football club we do have our problems in there. But if these figures are accurate then maybe the club is making the right decision in police free games or is it a case of resting on our laurels?
