    If This Wasn't Predictable Then I Don't Know What Is!

    Warring football holligans have fought running battles outside a stadium and a man has been stabbed in the chest during what police described as "large-scale" violence.

    The bitter rivalry between West Ham and Millwall supporters descended into violence before the game at Upton Park, in east London.


    The 44-year-old man was stabbed in Priory Road, just yards from West Ham's ground.


    Onlookers described how bricks and bottles were lobbed as hundreds of supporters rioted.


    And inside the ground, fans fought with police and stewards, forcing play to be suspended as scores of supporters invaded the pitch.


    The fighting started shortly after 6pm as thousands of fans made their way to the ground.


    A 29-year-old man, who runs a kebab shop in Green Street, said: "All hell broke loose, it was very frightening. It's not every day you see stuff like that. Bottles and bricks were being thrown. Some were hitting West Ham fans. There were loads of people with bloodied faces."


    He said he closed his shop for two hours as the violence flared. He added that the clashes continued after the match kicked off.


    Another man, aged 19, who did not want to be named, said: "People were chipping bricks off buildings and throwing them at police. I saw one officer getting kicked as he was on the ground."


    A Football Association spokesman said: "We absolutely condemn all of the disorder that has occurred at Upton Park this evening. We will be working with all parties, including the police and clubs, to establish the facts surrounding tonight's events.


    We strongly expect all culprits to be banned from football for life. They have no place in our game."

    They could have written this story months ago, the day they read the fixture, West Ham vs Millwall FFS.

    Probably the match which is always gonna cause the most trouble. If Man Utd/Liverpool games weren't so thorougly policed you'd see very similar there too, they also aren't too keen on one another.

    Someone might want to alert West Ham and Millwall that Jimmy-boy-Bob hasn't heard of them.

    I'm sure that the recent trouble and death will pale in comparison to that startling revelation.

    Predictable that a new generation brought up on cocaine and cheap booze, nationalism and a steady stream of footy hooligan videos, (Football Factory, Green Street, Rise of the Footsoldier) should go out and recreate what they see as macho British lad culture. Something reminicent of the 80's which was stamped out by popular demand, but has been reinstituted through social engineering in it's most retarded form, now spun by the media on a TV near you.

    German Hooligans are usually much more "civilized".

    A few years back I saw a report on TV about Hooligans of Hamburg and Berlin when a game between HSV Hamburg and Hertha Berlin was up.

    Police expected a fight and was out in force near the stadium. So the Berlin hooligans called the Hamburg Hooligans to agree on a place for their fight away from the stadium. They also suggested rules of engagement, such as using no knives.

    There were some nice pictures of one Berlin hooligan after the fight, a broken arm and severely bleeding but he said it was a nice fight as everybody had followed the rules.

    Next day the Berlin hooligans called up the Hamburgers again. You have brought some girls with you standing at the side and taking photos. So can you please send us some copies?
