'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Barnsley Ban For Tango Man!

One of Wednesday's most notorious supporters has been banned from tonight's match at Barnsley, sparking controversy about what is accepted in the modern game, writes Daniel Robinson.

Paul Gregory, better known to all of us as 'Tango Man', spoke of his shock about a ban enforced against him by senior officials at Barnsley.

'I just can't believe it,' told the Sheffield Star. 'I'm being branded as a hooligan by them but I just go to enjoy the football.'

Barnsley claim that he encourages other supporters to 'misbehave' and that he has failed to respond by requests from stewards to adhere to club regulations.

So what is acceptable in the modern game? Are Barnsley right to ban the Tango Man? Have your say!

He encourages Wednesday fans to sing and at worst one or two others may take their tops off - on a hot day- rarely. He's been doing it for years and hasn't been banned anywhere else. I've never seen anyone start fighting because of it. More stupidity. Maybe we should all turn up wearing orange speedos in protest!
