We’re seeing more and more of this kind of behaviour recently, and these are pretty terrifying scenes to witness.
It follows chaos at the Champions League final in Paris at the weekend, with French football clearly having similar issues to English football, if not worse.
One just has to hope this is a case of the pictures and video making it look worse than it actually was, but it’s certainly not somewhere you’d want to be if you were watching the game with your family and kids last night.
