Thread: Who used to enjoy the aggro?

  1. #1

    Who used to enjoy the aggro?

    I did, I loved it.
    The overall buzz was usually better than the actual match for me.
    Frowned upon now of course...but Iím not ashamed of it.

    I was an apprentice hooligan until the age of twelve, then realised how idiotic it all was.

    Was a casual more for the culture than the aggro. Used to travel with the train mob or on away coaches from the Kings in the 90s and got into one or two scrapes but it was more about the clothes and the music for me.

    Quite hard to stay clear of it in the 80’s and 90’s to be honest

    Sorry but you should be ashamed. It made me ashamed to be a City fan at times and dragged our club through the mire and into the gutter. The people who were involved in it had no thought for the well being of the club or the remainder of the fans, who just wanted to watch a game of football. I saw innocent women, children and old people trampled upon and beaten up, just because a group of morons wanted to massage their own egos and make themselves look big in front of their Ďmatesí. Most of them weren't even interested in the football or Cardiff City. Good riddance to those days.

    I posted a message saying I don't miss the agro at all, but you post something and I find myself siding with those who do . I'm assuming you're on the wind up, but can I ask when and where you "saw innocent women, children and old people trampled upon and beaten up"?

    Re: Who used to enjoy the aggro?

    Loved a scrap it the day , there was s much pier pressure about within my environment , think it was a Llanrumney survival gene .

    Thankful I've matured since thank god , still got a flair up temper when pushed though , mostly under control now though .

    On a personal level this type of behavior was born from complex issues as a youngster , lost an alcoholic dad at 13 which was hard and didn't help . In my view it depended on where you lived , and schooled , parental control , who you hang and ran with .

    I will admit to having some fun though

    Re: Who used to enjoy the aggro?

    Not for me.
    As I went through the 70’s &80’s it was very much a part of the match day experience ,away from home especially.
    Aside from a few occasions, it was generally avoidable but being a gentle old soul I would have preferred not to have had to take avoiding action.
    Then again, sometimes, it was the main topic of conversation coming back from some away trips.

    It was 1971

    We had a late game vs the wurzels, had to get a train to Newport then a bus to Risca to get home.

    Got on a train full of yokels...
    No trouble.

    Got jumped walking from Newport train station to the bus station.

    I have probably been to thousands of games now and never ever got involved or dragged into it, and never had any interest in doing so.

    Are you Wayne nash by any chance?

    Re: Who used to enjoy the aggro?

    I'm still as baffled about the whole idea as I always was. Having to be wary of how you travel to a game, or wearing colours, or going in the wrong pub, or having to get up at 6am to travel on a designated bus to a town 40 miles away for a game that won't kick off for 6 hours is bizarre. And it's all done because a few people might like to punch you in the face.

    Re: Who used to enjoy the aggro?

    I have to agree with DML, it was disgraceful, it dragged the bad name of cardiff city through the dirt
    when you went away, you knew that every local headcase was out to get you

    It was a bloody great time though not a single regret about it, ive said it before, it all came together at the right time for me, i was old enough to enjoy it but young enough to have the excuse of my age

    Must have bumped into you many times Matt in those days, think I jumped ship about the right time, aways were just getting more hassle than fun. Besides, when you go to raves and donít get home until midday even home games are tricky nevermind aways!

    we must have either the footy or raves, we appear to have been at it at almost exactly the same time

    Saw a bit from a distance but never got involved, or wanted to for that matter.
    Some of the clothing choices were a bit dodgy aswell.

    In all fairness there was some horrible barstards around that were just bullies, picking on scarfers.
    I really felt for this one Youngish lad, Oxford fan had parked by Sloper Rd...probably had just passed his driving test by the looks of him.

    Some knob punched the drivers window in because he had an Oxford Shirt on and then punched him in the side of his head.

    Another time when a Boro Scarfer had the living Shit beaten out of him opposite the Grandstand at the FA Cup game.

    Most people definitely had no time for that and in both cases myself and my mates aided the fans that were bashed up.
