Cardiff City Football Violence
Sunday, January 07, 2007
A high-profile game at Ninian Park has again been spoiled by crowd trouble. As a game of football, Cardiff against Spurs was a fantastic spectacle. The behaviour of some of the supporters was just ugly.
It doesn't matter 'who started it'. We know that Spurs fans made a sudden rush towards the lower grandstand, and then a flare was let off in the Cardiff end. But after the game all sorts of things were being thrown at police outside the ground.
Anyone who goes to a football match for reasons other than enjoying the sport needs their head examined - although I suspect you wouldn't find much in there other than a penchant for imitation Burberry and cheap lager.
Wolves were right to ban Cardiff fans for the upcoming game at Molineux. I'm not usually a supporter of punishing the many for the actions of the few but Cardiff needs a kick up the backside to sort out its silly little yob culture.

You start off by saying it doesn't matter who started the trouble and then say Cardiff need to be punished. Glad you're not prejudiced there...
Police at Molineux were battering ordinary supporters for no reason. Stop talking shite.

It doesn't matter who started the trouble. I'd punish both sets of fans.
It's 2007. We shouldn't still be talking about football violence.
The fact is, Cardiff has an inordinate amount of violent little twerps among its supporters.
We can't just keep letting them off the hook.

Not only is there a problem with a bunch of spotty 15 year old soul crew chavs, but there's constant racial abuse aimed at opposition players from "fans" in the Popular Terrace. The officials need to stamp this out very quickly by punishing those responsible with life bans. there's no room for racism in football

Quite right. It's horrible to think there are racist in the Cardiff ranks.

Absolute bollocks. Where do you get that from? If you mean Cardiff fans chanting anti-English stuff then you should listen to all the racist sheepshagger comments that we have to put up with.
"The fact is, Cardiff has an inordinate amount of violent little twerps among its supporters.

Actually the team with the worst hooliganism record in British football is England. When are you going to stop letting them off the hook?
Typical English hypocrisy I'm afraid.
