    Whatever form it takes is despicable but it fortunate remains the minority.
    I can agree that it is idiots attaching themselves to a football team; England.

    Iíve been to numerous cup finals, most home, a couple abroad and numerous football matches both as a fan and in a professional capacity; the levels of disorder are considerably worse when England are involved.

    Whilst some might not like the way rudebhoy made his original post, I have to say that as far as Iím concerned he has a valid point. Yes, itís still a minority but a considerably larger minority when England are involved.

    In the last 24hrs we dealt with 2200 incidents the highest on record. Demand surged after the England match predominantly alcohol fuelled violence inclu. domestic & serious assaults.We had planned for this but such a shame this happens.Well done team @LancsPolice for your efforts


    Attachment 25201

    a bit more than "isolated incidents" on a normal weekend ...
    What he doesnít say is that typically there are, say, 1500 incidents on a normal Saturday night.

    By by saying there were 2200 incidents following the match he is clouding the numbers. There might have only been 200 related to the match. And in a county the size of Lancashire. Címon, letís have a bit of perspective rather than the sensational headlines.

    I remember a certain bunch of people that ripped up the turf at Wembley. They also snapped the goalposts and caused general mayhem around the ground.
    But I never held the country where they came from for their misdemeanours, I just attributed it to a few morons that got over excited whilst drunk.
    Maybe I was wrong and I should have blamed the whole of Scotland for their behaviour?

    The only good good news story that Iíve seen come out of this is that the Millwall supporters club has started a crowdfunding page to pay for the repairs to the ambulance put out of commission in Borough High Street.

    Why do these numpties consider it acceptable to behave like complete and utter cretins just because we won a football match?
    When was there a time when such people did not exist and it's not an English issue

    Peter the Hermit, 11th Century

    ďThe young people of today think of nothing but themselves. They have no respect for their parents or old age. They are impatient of all restraint. They talk as if they alone know everything and what passes for wisdom in us foolishness in them. As for the girls, they are foolish and immodest and unwomanly in speech, behavior, and dress.Ē


    Seneca, 1st Century AD

    ďOur young men have grown slothful. There is not a single honorable occupation for which they will toil night and day. They sing and dance and grow effeminate and curl their hair and learn womanish tricks of speech; they are as languid as women and deck themselves out with unbecoming ornaments. Without strength, without energy, they add nothing during life to the gifts with which they were born ó then they complain of their lot.Ē


    Plato, 5th century BC

    ďOur youth have an insatiable desire for wealth; they have bad manners and atrocious customs regarding dressing and their hair and what garments or shoes they wear.Ē


    Socrates, 5th century BC

    ďThe children now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love to chatter in place of exercise.Ē


    Hesiod, 8th Century BC

    ďI see no hope for the future of our people if they are dependent on frivolous youth of today, for certainly all youth are reckless beyond words. When I was young, we were taught to be discreet and respectful of elders, but the present youth are exceedingly disrespectful and impatient of restraint.Ē


    Assyrian Clay Tablet, 2800 BC

    ďOur Earth is degenerate in these later days; there are signs that the world is speedily coming to an end; bribery and corruption are common; children no longer obey their parents; every man wants to write a book and the end of the world is evidently approaching.Ē

    But nobody has denied or said anything different, weíve acknowledged we have the idiots, but to stay at home because the concert maybe spoilt is rubbish, I live near the venue, absolutely no reported incidents, everybody saying on fbook/twitter etc what a wonderful night they had.
    As youíve put, youíve got far more experience than most if not all on here, have you not experienced the good as well?
    Iíve certainly seen both sides of England fans and to the majority we are public enemy no1, just not all of us.

    You have posted about England fans, a few have questioned your motive and mentioned about tarring everyone with the same brush.

    Yes, I accept you paraphrased, but itís paraphraseing once again to back up your point about England fans in general, just stick to facts or quote directly, that way there is no confusion.

    Then you say Iím splitting hairs! Quality, you couldnít make it up!

    You still havenít answered the question as to what was the point of once again highlighting the tiny minority misbehaving
    I have never once said it is all England fans, if you think I have, please show me where.

    As for why I posted the quote from the ACC, I already explained that. I said yesterday there was likely to be trouble after the match. Despite being told I was being racist etc etc, I was proved right. The BBC and the national press have went to town on it, are they anti English as well?

    It was the Asst Chief Constable who tweeted and pointed the finger at football fans. Is he guilty of sensationalism? West Midlands Police did the same btw.

    While I may disagree with some of the posters on here, at least we can have a reasonably adult conversation. You are the exception. If all you can do is throw insults like that around, then itís futile even engaging with you. Feel free to call me all the nasty names you like, I wonít be responding.

    Just read your first post, tried straight away to explain as did 4-5 others. You said ďEngland FansĒ
    Anyway, I agree some, a very tiny minority who are embarrassing and the scum of the earth, England fans need locking up.
