'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Scholes Hopes For Respect

Paul Scholes hopes that City fans will respect the victims of the Munich tragedy and don't interrupt the minute's silence.

Wednesday's England friendly went well enough in that aspect though a few morons' voices could be heard during a surprisingly short silence - but the rest behaved impeccably and wasn't provoked into a response.

We hope that tomorrow's derby against City will have even less problems: an impeccably observed minute's silence is not too much to ask as Wales and Northern Ireland fans demonstrated on Wednesday. And Paul Scholes hopes that the death of their former hero Frank Swift will be enough for the City fans to keep them quiet.

'I think the only thing you have to worry about is the minority of City fans who might want to cause trouble,' he said.

'They lost someone in the accident as well, so I hope their fans are not disrespectful.

'There is always that few who might cause problems. They have referred to the accident a few times in the past and I just hope they can come to their senses on the day.

'It would reflect badly on their club, but that's not stopped them in the past, has it?'


No, it hasn't. But one hopes that the words spoken by a City fan at Old Trafford on Wednesday - true Blues respect the victims and mourn together - are true and all of his peers think the same way.

i can't see any city fans causing any trouble, especially away from home i think if any minority was like to disrupt the silence it would be the young chav like fans who have no respect for others and are un influenced by tragadies like this that affected the whole city of manchester. i hope any disturbances will be punished severely. and has anything been done about the supporters at wembley who interrupted the silence there?
