City boys we are here,sh*g your women and drink yo
Just for the record..and now that online tempers have subsided a bit..

I do not condone indiscriminate violence at Football matches. .and have never done.

My point..perhaps badly made as I was in a rush when posting...is that any violence I've seen in 30 years of footy hasn't put me off attending the game I used to love. Back in the day it was more prevelant of course ..it didn't put me off going or make me whinge or start crying ...it was part of the game rightly or wrongly. There has always been violencein Derby Day as long as i can remember ..grown men and younger lads (some women too) have fought ...tempers do erupt...it's just the way it is..

As someone who has done the '"The Walk" (The Cure ) 'from a friends house in Stretford (pre match party sometines starting at 7am depending on kick off time) and back to nearly every City Trafford game over 30 years..A56/Stretford rd..mingling in with utd
fans some leary some pissed some abusive ..many quiet tourists..you had to be on your guard...every single minute..thars how it was...turn a corner (as u get near to the ground ) and the mood could change in a second
Making your way down the narrow street just before you turn into the main drag was always interesting and scuffles would break out...arrive on the utd Munich clock fore court..the fun really started. ..March forward and join the away queue and wait to be verbally abused pushed goaded spat at ridiculed ..all under the watchful eye of mounted police who struggled to maintain order as the clearly outnumbered City away contingent were prime targets for the thousands of reds walking by..Fighrs broke out often.

After the match whatever the score. ..you kept your head down .and your mouth shut.A fight could break out at any time . All the way baaach up Stretford rd until the crowd properly thinned out..reds diving into that crappy boozer...and you could finally think straight and relax....until u again bumped into dublin reds or cornwall reds parked up on side streets pissed up and waiting for the driver to get back to the vehicle. ..The edge has died down over the years but everyone going to that match knew what it entailed. ..no one ran home and started whingeing.That's how it was.

Then when the roles were reversed and they came to Maine rd...of course it's gonna kick off. You must be a clown or a Muppet to think otherwise! Speak to older reds about being ambushed in dog shit alley...Mr O.N having to Marshall his troops...but to no avail......

Anyone who thinks Derby Day violence /banter isn't just as much a part of Football as the Match day programme is living in a different world to me.Long before the keyboard warriors came to be ..some of us were walking the gauntlet ...None of us were put off by it..and not 1 single Blue I know advocates violence involving kids the elderly or infirm in any way shape or form..hope that clears up any misunderstanding, almost certainly caused by my original post.;)
Best post on this thread by far.
I almost thought I was back in the 70s wearing my Fred Perry polo, Levis and Timpson Royals. Never wore any colours in those days, just keep your head down and try to get back into town unscathed.
I almost got beat up by a crew of City mixed race kids as I made my way back to my car on Yewtree Lane @ 1977. Luckily I had my City pin badge in the pocket of my sheepskin coat and they believed that I was a Blue when I showed it to them.

Happy clappy land! Between mad and grumpy
You see, that's where you're going wrong. You're trying to impose your standards of behavior and moral code onto these idiots. "Does not compute", as the kids might say.
I guaranty this will compute.

My question too - I hear the point you're making but as the OP this thread was about blue on blue violence - interested to hear where you stand on that?

well ..where do u think I stand after I made it clear I don't condone indiscriminate violence and never have? You still sound angry 5 Days later pal.

You might be the OP (and tbf) I didn't read your post -silly me- but threads have a habit of developing into wider issues/points.
You d be better off asking how folk around you were affected by the 'violence'on the day. ..not me.
I see your party are claiming to be the victim,maybe others saw it differently..

Id hate to be chucked out for expressing a view in a Football match esp if that view is take Silva off for Foden...I said that out loud around 10 times on sat in Family stand I was sat on my own .others agreed with me,no one challenged me...not like here on good old BM when I first started articulating my belief that Foden was ready (and David was in decline) two yrs ago and got dogs abuse and ridicule for saying so...
Where do u stand on online bullying?? ;)
But seriously. ...the only time I've bin threatened by another Blue was Westham away a few years baaach (Negrado outrageous dummy Augero scores) when some numpty was sat in my seat and refused to move ..I was pissed out me head,late in, and In no mood to discuss theissue picked him up and threw him out of the seat-little did I know he had mates dotted about......

Cracking post and spot on every aspect I well remember O'Neil and Lyons waiting for us all for the derby day scrap just as we plotted up for them arriving at our place. It's how it is and will always be and kids ,women and pensioners were never in my experience attacked by each sides hooligans and never should be. Pleny of City fans will never have experienced the fear factor of coming out of OT, Liverpool, Everton, Millwall etc as most fans are wrapped in cotton wool these days. Oh the joy of a 3o Clock ko and getting legged back to lime street by some stanley knife dipper wielding scum bag.

Your username nails it.We used to sing that back in the day andmeant it ..weather a part of the crew or just a hanger on/interested observer....everyone knew what Derby day was about and if u were on your own or in a small party u had to watch out for being jumped /picked off
Everton Sunderland Millwall (old den) Spurs anfield Boro cud be nasty Leeds
Sheffutd Newcastle back in the day
First trip to Everrton coach got bricked 1 min after leaving the east lancs..turned right ,went under a bridge and BANG! welcome to Merseyside

The notourious leeds 'subway'and Leeds 'walk/run in the park' for us train users...

Loads of places...at forest I know blues who jumped in the river trent to avoid a battering.after being outnumbered esp 74 when law bell buzzer and Lee got outplayed by Duncan McKenzie.lost 4-1.our away following effected by train strikes etc ..this is the match Helen Turner used her bell to protect young Blues coming out the away endfrom a forest attack .so used to violence over the years there was no cotton wool in those days ..maybe we should find some.....
