Disturbing to read the report but that video clip....

Yeah, I was watching the vid waiting for something to happen but nothing did. The only comment I do have to make on it is I wonder if the people filming were with the kids at the beginning? If they were then they should watch their language in front of them.

that video was a waste of time: nice view of the pavement and sideways view of a bus though. They should have saved their money and watched a proper game of footie at Ewood on Sunday.

bring back the 1970's the Bootboys and Skins.....no thanks in retrospect.

There was a bit of bother outside the Moorgate just after the game yesterday.

I was in the moorgate after the game, no trouble at all.....

Preston have been building a bit of a reputation over the past few years so should expect to be targeted. Coventry are not shy in coming forward as some witnessed back in the 90's. I watched some of the game and you could count the number of PNE fans in the away end, surprised they managed to take a coach.

Well outside the Moorgate there was a scrap between 5 Mancs aged between 18 and 40 and a couple of Rovers fans. Basically the scummy Mancs were giving this guy grief all the way up Livesey Branch road, to which he kept saying "yeah well hard, 5 of you and one of me. Can't you see there are children here?" Anyway, outside the Mooey one of the pished up manc scum ran at this bloke. The Rovers bloke stood his ground, smacked the scummer then was set on by three of them. When they knocked him to the ground one of these eejits actually kicked him in the head, at which point I jumped in and tried to help. The Rover's bloke had a young lad with him who was in absolute bits cos his dad was bleeding. I just told the scumm to hop it and told the Rovers bloke to sit down, (he'd been kicked in the head) but he was either pished or stunned or something and wanted some more so he told me to get lost.

At which point I rejoined my 79 year old dad and carried on walking.

It is a long long time since I have either seen or been involved (peripherally) in anything like that at a football match. I reckon drink was a major contributing factor, that and a combined IQ of 14 for the 5 manc scummers. It is a real shame, because for over 10 years I have been telling folk back home in Ireland about how safe football is and what a family activity it has become. Apparently some drag-knuckled people feel differently.

You can tell how cowardly these idiots were, waiting until they were well away from any police presence before 'having a go".

Lock em up.

We walked up past McDonalds after the game and some of their fans were as bad as I've seen in a long while. One foul mouthed prat in a black top was verbally abusing everybody be it man woman or child. They were just behind us as we went in the brown cow and I'd be amazed if it wasnt him and his 'group' that kicked off outside the Moorgate seconds later. As you said, SCUM.

I posted the above in the match thread. The incident did seem to last for a good minute followed by a bit of a stand off. I also saw one City fan having a pop at a car which had been driving up the side street past the trouble.

The annoying thing was that you could tell from Macdonalds that the main gobby guy was trying to kick something off and you knew it was always likely to be someone who just tried to tell him to shut up that was going to get it.

I'm told by friends who support clubs in the lower leagues that it is more prevalent there due to the lower profile and less policing for smaller crowds making life a little easier for the "casuals/hoolies/boys/crews/tossers" (choose your label) with followers of certain clubs taking more pleasure in such activity than others. Also, the chief protagonists are grown men who were probably around in the 1980's and now have reasonable jobs, enough disposable income and expensive tastes in clothes. Let's hope this is a (very) brief passing phase that does not catch on again or we' ll be back in the days of having a number of "no women and children" matches.

We were walking back from the game and 3 city fans obviously drunk started piping up under the bridge, fair enough I have no problem with fans singing but these three idiots were walking in the middle of the road holding up all the traffic . Luckily everybody just ignored them and eventually after holding up traffic for about 5 minutes they went onto the pavement.

It was obvious to everyone around that these guys (one middle aged and two 18 -25) were trying to provoke a reaction and start a scuffle. Pathetic. I do think that the atmosphere around football games has got more sinister over the last couple of years, it is unfortunately a result of our ever crumbling society.... but that is a topic for another forum...

We were parked by the old Infirmary and saw those three halfwits. At first we laughed at them but after a while the sight of a grown man in his 30's/40's walking up the middle of the road stopping ordinary citizens getting about and intimidating them became grotesque.

Would have loved to see a burly cop shove the fat p**** onto the pavement. Sadly, if a member of the public did it it would have caused more trouble than it was worth.

Question has to be where were the police as that area always used to be a hotspot for trouble?

Park up near the Manxman nowadays (again) but used to walk that way and there always used to be Police stationed around that area and also walking up.

Throughout the years some of the worst trouble I have seen as been when Chav Citeh have been around and despite their reputation for being one of the top mobs have only had a go when there has been more numbers or they turn on just one person - this also includes at Maine Road (as Abbey knows full well) where a fair few years ago when I was younger I saw a group of Citeh fans after the match start giving it and took a swing at an elderlish Rovers chappie (in his 50's) - now this guy wasn't very big and did seem like he had a few sherbets but after a while he just turned on them on his own and chased them over to the car park that used to be at Maine Road before the Police finally got involved.

Indeed ... looks like its not changed from Highfield Road

Highfield Road was in the Hillfields area of Coventry, which is/was pretty damn rough. Doesn't help that there is a massive Tesco near the Ricoh that sells cheap booze. Even if you can't drink on the premises of Tesco or the Ricoh, you could probably get away with it.

It is a shame that acting like an aggressive nob is coming back in fashion. I despised the Zoe Ball bandwaggon jumpers during the 1990's, but at least they didn't call you a name and threaten you.

I saw the Citeh fans in question walking up past Mcdonalds, one of them had the eye for me as i am a casual in the dress sense. I love vintage adidas, designer clothes and know a few of the boys. However, this time i was only with the old man so we dropped back and let them walk ahead. I cant believe they got all the way up to the Brown Cow / Moorgate saying what they where saying without getting a slap. Also, it could have easily kicked off at Preston - hardly any police for a local derby. We nearly got ambushed by them.

The Coventry thing is shocking though and Citeh fans are a disgrace for hitting a man with a kid. But what is there to stop it happening, the jails are over crowded and if a punch kills someone you clain manslaughter and are out on the street in 3 years.
