In football this weekend, Millwall at Wemberly yesterday and Newcastle Utd fans rioting because they lost to Sunderland today, no doubt the government will be blamed for that as well :-(

Actually Joy I disagree there is nothing wrong with the game its a beauiful game and some excellent results over the weekend, but to go on the rampage and behave like a hooligan is not acceptable I thought we moved away from that sort of behaviour 30 yrs ago. :-(

Its shocking that grown man can act so stupid,,,,if I reconised my OH involved I'd be waiting with a rolling pin for when he got home. :-P

Absoloutely Not Joy and now adays its mostly family based which is how it should be. The media will probably blame it on Maggie Thachers death or something just thuggery to me .

Really Anne? :-(

I've gone to football since I was a little girl and I have never seen any trouble.

I think it's a shame that some supporters have started this nonsense off again..with any luck they'll be dealt with harshly and this little spate of trouble will be nipped in the bud so those of us who love the game can take our children and watch without trouble.

Kay if I saw my old man punching a police horse in the neck it wouldnt be a rolling pin I'd be waiting with , ;-)

{ Newcastle Utd fans rioting ? } sorry wrong description Hayley
............not fans:-| but as you so rightly say, hooligans who bring shame to the fine city of Newcastle :-(

Game was awful for the Toon,side didn't want the glory as much as the Mackems.....I'm sad to say :-( .....and with their 'passionate new broom' they won the day :-|

yes Mau you are absoloutely correct they are not fans they are hooligans and not all the clubs fans should be tarred with the same brush and that includes Millwall who have a seriously bad rep for hooliganism but the club has tried their hardest to untag it self from it. I am concerned I dont want to see this behaviour again back in the game, and them barriers back up I just dont. :-(

Mauatthecoast Report 14 Apr 2013 19:47

There was a 50,000 crowd for today's derby game......with 27 arrests and judging by the pics.mostly young'ns,who because it was a derby would be spoiling for a fight even if we won :-S

But they are not representative of the vast majority of supporters. Unfortunately every club has their hot-head fans? who would cause trouble because 'they felt like it'......numbskulls :-P :-|

and yet how quickly they forget,,,,,,its 24th anniversary of the Hillsboro,,,,,,,you'd have thought they would have been remembering that instead of acting like ****heads,,,,,

Mauatthecoast Report 14 Apr 2013 20:20

But Kay as we've said these m****s are not representative of true fans!

After the Hillsborough disaster there was a major overhaul of football stadiums and the way they were run and this changed British football for ever. But unfortunately as in any sport there will be troublemakers spoiling for a fight! :-|....who have sadly no conscience regarding past events....and afraid they'll never learn........anything! :-(

edit: the trouble didn't even happen in the ground at St.James
it started at the Central station.
