Back to the seventies

Post  barrowmackem on 2016-04-13, 9:22 am

Well there i am stood in my usual spot on the terraces watching Barrow last Saturday when about 50 away fans from Altrincham turn up and stand by me beer in hand not allowed as you know, that had been on the lash some time by the look of em apparently on a stag do to Barrow taking in the game. All good banter and loved the atmosphere, so kick off time and Barrow attack towards the goal i am stood and the Barrow fans make their way to the end i am stood. Now the club decided on no segregation oh dear. So two sets of fans on the same terraces it shouldn't but a recipe for trouble. So good banter soon turns to bad banter the away fans singing i wana go home i sick of this shit hole i wanna go home, Barrow is a racist town ect. Barrow fans take exception and it starts to get heated as i said it would 10 mins earlier. So jostling starts to start getting rather close to me i might add. Stewards and one policeman step in and try to separate the fans and just about manage to do it. Another 30 seconds and without doubt a free for all. Entertaining for me never watched the game for five mins lol. Well the away fans were shepherded to the away section where they should have been in the first place. Club have admitted they took their eye of the ball. A throw back to the seventies as probably many on here will have witnessed.

Sunderland AFC fans, (The Special Ones)

The good old days, or so I'm told like

Most of the hooligan days I could not get to many matches as I was involved with playing or running local stuff but got to big games or to ours if we were in the area. The contrast was when I lived in Germany and was quite happy for a ten YO to go to his first matches and mix in with German kids and supporters.  Hooliganism was known as the "English Disease" until it spread via European fixtures and most countries dreaded an English team in their fixtures.

Was at a Cologne v Arsenal Euro game and the away fans were well behaved mainly encouraged by police dogs and armed police.
