Shameful scenes from Germany


imageAccording to supporters out in Germany there has been fighting between West Ham United and Newcastle United fans this evening in the German city of Dusseldorf. One Newcastle fan on social media said both sets of fans had been drinking happily together all afternoon until drink got the better of a small section of fans. Another eye witness said German riot police were called in to break up the scuffles between the two sets of fans. The West Ham squad flew out today for the Schalke Cup being played against Schalke 04, Malaga and Newcastle United. The news brings shame on both Newcastle United & West Ham United fans most of which just want to follow their team.  The trouble mirrors similar scenes  last July when West ham fans were filmed throwing bottles in Germany in a pre-season tour before German riot police was called in.

    There’s a thread on KUMB about some aggro in NZ when some locals wearing Tottenham and Millwall stuff got in amongst some old-school West Ham expats – some would say Dinosaurs and I wouldn’t disagree with them!

    Personally, I think all this tribal stuff is nonsense – some people get a smell of the Barmaid’s Apron and all that old Caveman stuff comes out – time for these guys to grow up!

    Maybe an unpopular view but I’m happy with it!
