    Those CCTV footages show its abit larger than a 'small minority'.

    Manchester looked like a riot zone and dumping ground.
    A stabbing
    60+ arrests
    Light police treatment (considering fans rushed the police and tried to do the 'bouncy' on a policemans head.)

    Scotlands shame.

    Seville (2003)
    No arrests
    No jumping on policemens heads.
    Celtic fans even took bin bags.
    A screen broke over there too, but they walked to the other one.

    As the officer who got trampled said, it may have been a minority but 1000 is a large minority to be rushed by!

    It was all rose-tinted specs during the "carnival" atmosphere but we all knew it was goign to turn nasty at one point..

    Football supporters scumbags the lot of them.

    Notice no media coverage of the problems caused by vans full of drunken Rangers supporters on motorways, service stations and various towns en route from Glasgow to Manchester,...... coachloads of drunks urinating at the roadside etc. This was taking place the day before, Blackpool was full of 'em. I also really object to the sectarian songs and abuse that you wouldn't even hear in parts of Ulster nowadays.

    The green half of Glesga are hardly blameless.

    This is all beside the point though, the English invented football violence
