Behind The Scenes With The Police For Villa v Blues
An interesting video from www.theguardian.com/football on the local derby.
It is a fascinating insight, from the police standpoint, as to what they put up with at a local derby Villa v Blues.
You can see 13 mins 10 seconds in what some police think of how some of the Blues fans behave (I repeat, some of the fans)
Just a stand off between Blues and the police, with the Villa fans still locked into the ground.
Mad really isn`t it?
Bottles and bricks thrown at the police. Senseless. It`s meant to be football, not war. One policeman hit twice by missiles. Embarrassing.
As it says at the end, of over 24 000 fans, about 4% were involved in disorder.
And nothing to do with Villa v Blues but always thought this short film was very well shot:
