Football violence isn't all that it's thought to be.I've rarely seen scenes of violence provoked by football in England.It does exist but it's not what people who live outside this country think it is.

I don't recall ever seeing "yobs" at cricket matches?
I might be wrong though.

Football violence in mainland Europe is much worse than in the UK. I went to Napoli v Inter a few years ago and it was much scarier than anything I've ever experienced in England.

Well,they introduced this zero-tolerance policy in central London.The only thing is that you can hardly see any cops at all so the pissing against a wall goes on undisturbed.

The pace of a cricket match isn't really one that encourages high feelings and rivalry. It's a much more "gentlemanly" game. But at the end of the day, football is an excuse for thuggery, not a cause.

About ten years ago there was a slight influx during the cricket season (I think Yorkshire suffered a bit). Football is one of many things that attract the yobs, but it's not the cause. Indifference and cultural degradation is the cause.

They say that the turks are the most fanatical. Feel free to visit a Fenerbahçe vs Galatasaray match, if you don't believe me.
You'll see fans walking around with bush knives and you'll hear gunshots ringing through the stadium.

But do we jail them for the right things? Are we jailing the right people? Are we managing to make them understand that they are wrong? By April 2005, Labour had created somthing like 350 new crimes. I have no idea how many it might be now.

There's a lot of tension when English clubs play Turkish clubs. A couple of Leeds fans were killed some years ago.

If one thing ever bugged me about this country is the public transport and its price and service.I went to get a one way ticket this morning and the price has increased by £1(!!!!!).That is fucking outrageous,considering the shitty service that you get.

So I warned him of this. And the 16-yr-old started on me. Now, bear in mind that, anyone who's met me, I am not a terrible well-built or hardcore fighter, I managed to dismiss him quite quickly, with a combination of deflections and words. I was astonished that someone so feeble was actively excited about fighting with actual proper hard fuckers.

You have your Millwall fans(who are awful losers) and you have your Charlton fans(who are,mostly,friendly chaps).It's the spice of life,i suppose.

Football might not be the direct cause, but it sure gives them a lame reason to go on the rampage.

Have you ever met any of the Brighton heavies? Thoroughly nice chaps, the ones I've met. They do that wonderful thing of arranging fights in such a way as to guarentee that only those interested in fighting will be involved. We were very kindly escorted out of a pub in Brighton where a fight was kicking off. A few large chaps came up to us and very politely said, "There's going to be a fight here. If you want to stick around for it, you're more than welcome, but if not, finish your beers and have a nice day." I quite admire that. Fighting, yes, but only for those who want to fight.

I really don't see football as the cause of thuggery in Britain.I don't have a visible example in reality,therefore i know it is not true.English(not British,mind) football yobs are mainly a mild concern overseas.
