    Yet again they try and ambush us. The other season I got battered there and again outside the coach park they attacked us. they live in the dark ages round there.

    If this goes on on a regular basis why don't the police do anything about it. I presume they don't just try it against us.

    Please can you correct yourself there - I am from the area originally and most of the people I know there have hearts of gold. The people of the Potteries are genuinely some of the friendliest, kindliest, good-hearted people you can meet anywhere. OK it's not a wealthy place and it doesn't look great but please don't allow a sub-section of scumbags (and such people follow all clubs, including our own) tar a whole community. I've got friends living round there, they're not neanderthals.

    Imagine if some of our "legion" battered a group of harmless away fans at the Ricoh, and then some of their fans said "Coventry people are scum" - patently not true.

    People were surprised when Coventry got City of Culture, but my God it's paradise compared to Stoke.

    That middle aged fella with his top off all game summed it up.

    So what actually happened then? The two blokes next to me said the security went in with punches and the police lost it over abit of banter between the two sets of fans. Didn't say they were ambushed.

    Didn't really look like much, but I was on the other side of the Coventry fans.

    I can understand the frustration and anger but as mentioned every club has its fair share of idiots. Didnt we have some of our lovely fans attack a coach full of families outside the Ricoh a few years back?
    It only takes a few arseholes to ruin it but If i got any trouble at a certain game away it would be on my avoid list!

    So he calls Port Vale Fans scummy and he is pathetic.

    Bloody Hell we have been called worse.
    We even sing songs like this place is a shithole.
    That's football I suppose.
    Was even worse in the 70S and 80's

    Were you on the Parkstone coach? Two blokes on that bus were pepper sprayed, one right in his eyes.

    Some are worse than others though.

    I have particularly found Leeds fans to be bad and on a recent TV documentary about football fans causing trouble on trains, British Transport Police especially singled out Leeds fans as one of the most troublesome.

    What happens is the bully, the coward or the thug latches on to a situation. In the 70s every away Man U game saw thousands descend wherever they were playing, overwhelming the police and the local fans, a field day for the bullies, a lot of whom were from that town. Then it was Chelsea. Leeds have always attracted scumbags. I know of ‘Leeds’ hooligans from Bedworth, Nuneaton and Southam! Safety in numbers you see.

    I've going since 91/92 and have to agree that Leeds do attract their fair share of dickheads.

    The 70s was a different world. The West End was a terrace with the Cov mob packed in behind the goal. About level with the goalpost was a crash barrier running almost from the back to the front and another about a yard parallel. This gangway was filled with coppers and the away mob therefore about a yard away. Away fans came in hundreds or thousands by train. Hooligans were between 15 and 19 generally, 20s was considered quite old. Fighting to try and ‘take’ or hold the area behind the goal every home match unless it was Ipswich, Norwich, QPR or Southampton which were weeks off. Cov trying to ambush the away fans as they were escorted across Gosford Green to the station, like a medieval battle with police horses charging. About 200 coppers on duty every home match and 50 odd arrests not uncommon.

    It was all done with a lot more style in the 80's !! None of all those long haired hoodlums with scruffy donkey jackets and scarves around their wrists !

    We were walking back to the car after the port vale match. A few insults were thrown by their fans and a few city reacted. A copper got hit in the face by a bottle from the city fans. The vale were one side of the wall and the city were in the car park on the other side. really unable to get to each other. The coppers marched up the road with their batons keeping everyone apart. That was about the sum of it. Hardly millwall / Luton.

    Have the football on 5 on at the moment, in the background, and just saw a bit of the Leeds v Millwall game.

    Millwall scored right at the end of the game to win it and you can clearly see Leeds fans throwing stuff unto the pitch and directed towards the celebrating Millwall players and you can also clearly see at least one of the stewards hit by one of the missiles and try to duck out of the way.

    Just had a quick look on the internet though and can see no mention of the incident.

    I’ve just seen that as well, they will say that’s how they behave up there , very passionate and will probably get away with it.

    Yeah, exactly my point. Is there an acceptance that, that's just the way Leeds fans are?

    I reckon it would definitely be in the news if it was us.

    I saw in the CT this Week the constubulary are coming for about 20 involved in a Foleshill rd fracas after the Mansfield game.

    I agree, it’s the same when English teams play in Europe and other country’s get away with similar things based on so called culture.
