Ollie's Way: Letting off smoke bombs is stupid
I'VE heard that some of our fans have been letting off smoke bombs. What a stupid thing to do.
I have to admit, I didn't hear them at Watford because I was concentrating so hard on the game last Friday, but a couple of the players mentioned it afterwards.
We don't need any of that, we just need you to keep supporting your team because it's fantastic and you really help the lads.
I'm very proud when you sing 'CPFC' when it echoes around the ground all the time whether we're home or away, but that's silly nonsense because that could harm someone – there's no need for it.

I can't condone something like that but you're a fantastic set of fans, so come on.
There are a mindless few, so shame on you. It could damage someone – you don't want to do that, let's just get on with the football because that's the most exciting thing.
The players we've got and the good times we're having, let's just try and capitalise on that.
Thankfully, there have been no problems in the squad since the game at Vicarage Road.
Joel Ward is back in training and Danny Gabbidon is getting closer but Darcy Blake is another couple of weeks away.
I don't think they'll feature this weekend against Middlesbrough or against Bristol City next Tuesday, but hopefully the week after for Sheffield Wednesday.
Maybe Danny has an outside chance for Tuesday, but we'll have to wait and see.
Mile Jedinak has no problems and he should be OK for Saturday. He's been fine and every day that goes on, he gets stronger with it.
I've got the option to make one or two changes for Saturday but I'll have a look at what happened in the first and second halves against Watford.
Obviously, Jonny Williams is a candidate to start, plus Kevin Phillips is pushing for a place, so I'll have a few things to think about, and obviously Mile is back as well.
It will be a good time to get these players back up and running. I've watched the Watford game again and I thought we did really well.
I didn't think we deserved to be two-down and I think we deserved to go on and actually win it.
And the possession we kept was quite terrific at times.
Let's get on with the 15 games left of the season. I want the crowd to be upbeat, I want us to pass it more and I want us to try and dominate games – how exciting is it at the moment? It's fantastic.
If we can get a couple of wins coming up, it will be really close and nip and tuck until the end of the season.
One of those two top places are definitely up for grabs, and why can't it be us?
There is no reason it can't be.
