City Centre Frolics!

City Centre Frolics!

It`s not often that Sir Alex Ferguson gets rattled but the trip to Leeds in the Carling Cup, seems to have disturbed the boss.

Despite winning the tie comfortably, Sir Alex doesn`t appear to have any plans to re-visit the place, commenting,

"Our hotel was surrounded by seven police vans."

"It was frightening. It was like the film Zulu. Jesus!"

"We`ve never had anything like that before because we`ve never stayed in the centre of Leeds, that`s why."

"Next time, we`ll try Glasgow and get a helicopter down."


Let`s hope the draw is kinder for us next year then!

After living in the city for over a decade, I can see why the police had to be on alert near their hotel - sorry, but the rivalry gets out of hand when we play Leeds, and its pathetic attitudes from both sets of fans that causes it

Hopefully football hooliganism dies out as years pass. It's really quite sad seeing the levels that some people drop to all over a game of football.

In the city I live in now, the footie hooligans are the youngsters, they call themselves the 'Casual Crew' and fight in their own local drinking spots, and fight in packs of about 10 to 20. As a former doorman Ive had numerous run ins with them, and if they are ever out by themselves, they wouldnt even look me in the eye.
The only time these so called hooligans are hard is when they are in big groups - some of my old doorman buddies are on about a group of them going out one night, looking for these hooligans and totally going to town on them, while I am not going to be part of it, I wonder if its such a bad thing to do - these hooligans need to be seriously hurt before they will stop - and a good sharp shock to the system is maybe needed - ALL hooliganism needs cutting out, and the idiots who start it need a pasting themselves........ sorry lol rant over
