White, male, entitled violence


24 hours after a fan assaulted Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish, the English criminal justice system was able to arrest, charge, try and jail the 27-year-old assailant.  No politicians, football administrators, or clubs were involved.  Nor was alcohol, the perennial bogeyman.  Days were not spent discussing Strict Liability.  Only the police and courts were required.

We know lots about the perpetrators.  There are many women at football now, but these people are always male.  There are many people of colour at games, but not among the offenders, this is a white crime. And, they feel entitled to be violent by throwing coins, bottles or punches.

West Midlands Police and the Birmingham Magistrate’s Court have shown us how to react.  Their action will not end what currently ails football, but it is appropriate.  The politicians can ponder at their leisure why an underclass of white males erroneously feel entitled to carry out violent acts, on our streets as well as our stadiums.

Calling this a football problem, when it is obviously societal, will not wash.  It is not new either, violence like this has come and gone in waves for generations.

  5. Fergusslayedtheblues- quite right, our custodians are meant to be looking after the interests of our club and fans, I do not see any evidence here, what I see is the referees supervisor Fleming and Maxwell of SFA taking the piss.

  6. GOAL! Rangers 0-1 Aberdeen



    McGinn slots home after slack play from Kamara gifted the ball to the Done winger.



    It’s a horrendous pass in a bad area, across the edge of his own box.



    And the Irishman tucked it home in style.



    Ibrox is stunned – Aberdeen have been determined to press high up the pitch and have reaped their rewards.

    McGinn scoring in 3 minutes at Ibrox?


    That’s an obvious sending-off offence.




    Thank you.
