Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
Things I can't understand either Sen. A couple that stick in my mind were.

A trip to Millwall back when we lived in Kent and in the bad old days. The guy probably was an idiot being dressed in green and yellow (or at least my parents had none of us with anything identifiable) and the scene was a massive crowd chasing one person with police on horseback coming in to split things up.

Another was a Stoke supporter who seemed to thing it quite clever to nick the bobble hat from my probably about 7 tear old brother's head...

On the other hand (they won), Spurs vs Norwich league cup final where we bumped into a lot of Spurs fans on our way home was very friendly. Also and later (I didn't get to this one but other family did), Sunderland vs Norwich actually led to "The Friendship Trophy"

It can all be a bit of a mixed bag, I suppose. Once in a blue moon, I used to like going to a particular pub in a Welsh village to watch a football match. You could guarantee a lot of "piss taking" from supporters of different clubs but could be sure everything was in good fun.
