Well I spent a couple of hours before a cup final today in a pub with about 200 people in it split roughly 50/50 between supporters of both clubs. Not a sniff of bother and some good humoured banter going on.
I know it isn't the norm with football but it can happen on occasion.
That's exactly how it should be. Perhaps they've been taking lessons from the rugby crowds
250,000+ people in Cardiff on Saturday night and not one "serious" incident. Just occasional drunken scuffles and very drunk, very happy Welsh people which are par for the course on any night..! Chippy lane was a sight - literally mountains of empty chip cartons with people wading through them
Considering most of the rugby fans had been in the pubs since they opened on Saturday morning, that's testament to how well behaved they are in comparison to some of the lawn fairy mob.
I'd actually like football if it weren't for the primadonnas on the pitch and the clusters of f**kwits who call themselves 'fans' and who spoil it for everyone else. Some of my best friends are footballs fans through and through, so I know that it's a minority of pathetic idiots who ruin it for the rest..
