Violent scenes at Upton Park

August 25, 2009

Typical. Just after posting an article on how well things are going at West Ham United, this happens. Although it’s not really a fault of the Hammers.

Millwall were the visitors to Upton Park this evening for a Carling Cup tie, but unfortunately it’s not the Football that’s making the headlines. A man has been stabbed and violent battles have broken out outside the ground between rival fans who failed to get tickets for the match.

Reports are that “hundreds” of fans are involved in the incident, and officers have made two arrests. Police say the stabbing is connected to the fighting and the man is currently being treated by paramedics.

It’s same old same old as far as Millwall fans are concerned. They’re renowned for their trouble and violence both home and away, and there are no signs that they will relent in the near future. We obviously hope that there will be no fatalities linked to this violence.

Update as soon as we get more news.
