The police have released images of 17 men wanted for questioning in connection with the troubles at the West Ham versus Millwall Carling Cup game on 25 August.
The fixture was marred by pitch invasions, fighting inside and outside the ground, missile throwing and a stabbing. Police will seek banning orders on any convicted malefactors, preventing them attending future games (but not restricting their movements outside games).
The alleged twats, all thought to be West Ham 'fans', were captured on CCTV inside Upton Park. We're intrigued by the sneering ricti of pleasure flickering across most of their faces. It's like these (supposed) nobbers haven't mentally advanced beyond the level of twelve year old school boys, cheering on a playground fight. No, we wouldn't say that to their faces.
