The World Cup’s coming, excited excited! Ah football – the sport of cultured, educated and refined gentlemen and their lady friends. Right?
A shockingly-mistyped story from Rome reveals that neo-Nazis in Europe want to make the World Cup a battleground between themselves and Muslims. They plan to attack fans from all Muslim countries participating. A member of AS Roma’s hooligan faction claimed:
“We are united. For the first time we are talking and planning together, with the English, the Germans, the Dutch, the Spanish, everyone with the same objective. At the World Cup there will be a massacre.”
This comes in light of highly alarming footage from Manchester city centre, showing dozens of football hooligans on the rampage, beating unconscious supporters, knocking over mothers and destroying shops. A senior Manchester police officer claimed that the approach of the World Cup meant that hooligans are warming up, they are making their presence felt.
Sepp Blatter, FIFA President, announced last week that any country whose fans are found guilty of racism will be disqualified from the Cup. This was specifically stated to include sectarian chants as well as religious intolerance.
I really hate our ‘ambassadors’, we have a reputation around the world as violent football thugs; one that is only spreading further as football grows in popularity. Why can’t all football fans be like me – when they get drunk they’ll just pass out somewhere without starting any fights. Tragically it’s not just alcohol that fuels the problem, the worst offenders are not pissheads but racists, fascists and violent hooligans who systematically and soberly plan attacks long in advance.
On a lighter note, Iran may be one of the countries whose fans come under fire, but luckily their Football Federation confirms God is on their side!
