Knives, knuckledusters and ticketless fans: A return to the dark days of football?

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

Sussex police recently claimed that a fixture between Brighton and Hove Albion and Crystal Palace represented a return to the 'dark days of football', with the stadium beset by ticketless fans armed with knuckledusters - claims that were later retracted. Chief Supt. Owen West argues that this incident does risk a return to the dark days, in terms of police legitimacy and fan relations, and calls for urgent change.
