Behind The Scenes With The Police For Villa v Blues

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:

Well worth watching. I fail to understand why some fans (maybe 60 or 70) refused to go elsewhere pub/home/wherever until forced to leave by the police. This meant that it was 1hr and 20 mins after full time before the away fans were released. What were they waiting for? Is it lack of intelligence? Completely beyond me. A good watch anyway.
