Welcome. Blood and horror on the streets of Rome last night as a group of travelling Spurs fans were caught in a premeditated ambush of bat and knife-wielding Lazio Ultras.
Not content with re-setting the Pocket Watch of Human Progression back to the Dark Ages with their monkey chanting in London last month, the Roman club have once again shown themselves to have a despicable smearing of knuckle-draggers among their number. Reports suggest that ten Spurs fans have been injured- two of which have been stabbed while one remains in a critical condition:
“There were Tottenham supporters here to celebrate, they were drinking and singing but quietly, so the situation seemed to be under control, but then these people came aggressively and they got inside and they were looking for these English guys, trying to catch them and they started to throw the chairs and tables.
“It is horrible. If you throw stones and knuckle-dusters I think you want to hurt someone.”
Look after each other, Tottenham fans. Look after each other.
