  1. Strangely enough the police are allowed to defend themselves. They don’t have to just stand there whilst people threaten them and throw things at them.

  2. Maybe I misread but it doesn’t say what teams those arrested were supporting ? I suspect those on posession of class a drugs were Tottenham they are probably medicinal to help them deal with that affliction 😉

  3. Why do people who take drugs take them into a football stadium where being searched is a condition of entry? They deserve to be arrested and banned for sheer stupidity.
