    was at a game two weeks ago , my team on the attack I came back from the toilet and waited for the attack to stop before regaining my seat .I was stood in the alleyway which leads to the bar area ,behind the white safety barriers. the steward told me I had to move I explained to him I would after the attack .i said I didn't want to disturb people watching the game whilst there was a attack on. in total I told the steward he was a dickhead.Now two weeks later I went to the next game at home spending some money at the clubs bar then 20 mins into the game was escorted out of the ground with my season card taken of me. But worse still the wife had her card taken to for saying nothing. Any advice I can use when I have my meeting with the club over my actions
    advice please

    FSF Faircop maybe a decent bet to get free legal advice as a starting point if the club are acting with a total lack of reason.

    I told him he was a dickhead for not listening to reason. I did not want to move people whilst there was a slight chance of a goal. Truth

    Was probably no need to call him a dickhead

    If you really want your ST's back, email the club and apologise even if you dont feel you should.

    They should be, yes. But they have his season tickets. If he wants em back he'll need to apologise.

    It’s the clubs property and they reserve the right to confiscate it from anyone at any time

    At Leeds we have a supporters liaison officer I’m sure you’ll have one as well. There should be a phone number or/& email address. Contact them apologie & say how sorry you are. Bit of old fashioned grovelling & you should be alright.

    @navyboy72 best bet is to contact these lot FSF Faircop (@FSF_FairCop) | Twitter the one thing you don't want to do is contact the club yourself and claim responsibility.

    There's countless cases of stewards (often from private firms) acting like absolute pricks so the FSF should be able to advise you on the best course of action.

    I'd also suggest finding out who your local fan liaison officer is (as @Old codger said), also might be worth looking into if you have an independent supporters association, most clubs do, as they'll be able to advise you too.
