I've done the odd minor stupid thing like putting a traffic cone on my head, or p against a wall (drunk and sober), but I've never punched a Police horse, assaulted Police, or thrown things at a bus. Even when drunk, I've still managed to put my takeaway wrappers in the rubbish bins as well.

As you say, we do the same drunk as we do sober.

Alcohol just amplifies (ab)normal behaviour.

Exactly, there's silliness and there's being a lout. A line was crossed here and I'd say the same thing no matter what team the supporters were associated with.

Exactly, which is why I found myself in the strange position of defending Utd when they ruined my life...........

I see Flores has gone from Watford. I'd say I don't understand it, but given how much the new owners love sacking managers it's almost a surprise he lasted this long.

Did they really expect a top half finish or something? Surely staying up is enough.

I don't think you can say Utd ruined your life. It was people like Gerry Creaney, Barry Conlon and Lee Bradbury who ruined your life.

It's wolf pack mob mentality.

On their own most of these people would be to scared to get involved.

In the group they think they have a collective strength and can get away with it.

They really are not the sort of people you want in a stadium or near a football match.

Love that I got so many bites from my tongue in cheek comment about exuberance

My point was it was just a load of pissed up idiots, sparked by a comment that got carried away.

It wasn't a mob baying for them as it would have been if it were us at the old Den for instance.

Pissed up idiots are everywhere all the time there just happened to be thousands of pissed people there so more pissed up idiots, law of averages.

Oh and I'm not having it that Sultan is sa sensible drunk, nobody EVER has seen a sensible drunk paddy FACT

I go away for a few days and come back to discover good ol' frase still digging that hole for himself....

As for United ruining any citeh fan's life, hardly.....unless they only supported citeh between 1993 and 2009, and then switched their 'support' to the Chavs...

I could have equally claimed that Liverpool ruined most of my childhood, but then Sir Alex rode in to the rescue, and I've been extremely lucky to be able to say I've seen my team achieve everything I ever wanted them to IN ONE SEASON (1998-99)...
