Flying the flag for football
Guardian Unlimited – Jun 3, 2006
Jaded English supporters may feel indifferent to a tournament that sees them underperform consistently, but I doubt that the supporters of Australia, Togo and Ivory Coast share Campbell’s sentiments. I adore my club football, but the World Cup provides a different level of engagement. It is a romance, an immediately accessible world that is refreshingly inclusive to the wider community that may not understand the complexities and dull cynicism of club football. Jim Flanagan London Article continues… No problem with any other nations’ flags, no doubt. Dave O’NeillThetford, NorfolkThe campaign by the authorities to show that everyone detained for football hooliganism in international situations must be guilty and receives due process surely reached its nadir with the spokesperson from the Football Association (Deadline for hooligans, May 31) mentioning that there was just one arrest for cannabis around the grounds during Euro 2004 in sharp contrast with the massive arrests during Euro 2000. Perhaps the Euro 2004 incident in which Garry Mann and a dozen other innocent Britons were convicted of taking part in a riot in a judicial fiasco, well away from the grounds where matches took place, was the reason for the careful and curiously worded statement that does not compare like with like. The underlying problem is really one of unlawful behaviour by motivated agitators using the crowds to foment trouble. There is, so far as one can ascertain, no difference between the real football hooligan at international matches and the militant factions within the protesters at G8 summit meetings. The problem is the police response. Undisciplined, poorly equipped police burst into the crowds and since they cannot physically seize the quick intelligent ringleaders, they tend to be left with the innocent bystander, whom they proceed to set up with false testimony in the absence of specific evidence.

Thugs dodge World Cup ban
Guardian Unlimited – Jun 4, 2006
They have been keeping their heads down. ‘Police forces have not achieved their original target of giving 4,000 hooligans banning orders before the event begins. As a result, officers have increasingly been asking the courts to impose bail conditions equivalent to a banning order on fans arrested recently so that suspects cannot ‘play the system’ by delaying their trial until after the World Cup. Scores of troublemakers cannot reach Germany because of such restrictions. For example, when 44 Stoke City and Birmingham City fans were arrested in February and March following serious disturbances at an FA Cup match, almost all were banned from travelling to England matches abroad as a condition of being freed on bail. Although few England fans have been arrested at matches overseas since 2001, police privately suspect the historical rivalry between Germany and Britain could lead to some of the estimated 100,000 England fans who are expected to attend the event becoming involved in disturbances… Both countries have thousands of notorious hooligans, especially Poland. ‘In terms of known troublemakers we anticipate that very few will be going to Germany. No hooligans that had a banning order went to Euro 2004 in Portugal’, said a Home Office spokesman. ‘We are working hard with the German authorities to minimise the threat of trouble. ‘There were no arrests [of English fans] at the last World Cup in Korea and Japan, and we hope to have a similarly successful, orderly and peaceful World Cup this time. ‘ Officials involved in the extensive anti-hooligan operation for Germany point to the small number of English fans arrested when Arsenal and Middlesbrough recently played abroad in the finals of Europe’s two club competitions, the European and Uefa cups. Eighty-two specialist British police officers who work full-time on preventing football disorder will be based in Germany for the tournament, helping local security forces to plan tactics and identify troublemakers – including anyone defying a banning order.

Beckham `set on having a great World Cup’

He lifted England’s performance in the match against Hungary The England captain has quietly prepared for his third World Cup He lifted England’s performance in the match against Hungary

David Beckham made what could easily be described as a schoolboy error this week. He started feeling a bit claustrophobic at England’s hotel and decided to go for a walk around Manchester’s designer stores. The mistake he made was not to go for the A-listers’ traditional disguise of baseball cap, pulled low, and dark sunglasses. By the time he had got to King Street he had been mobbed. On Market Street Beckham suddenly had the strange sensation that his buttocks were being grabbed. Schoolgirls were pulling and prodding and squeezing and screaming. His beanie hat was pulled from his head and, finally, police were called to rescue him… I’m determined to have a great World Cup. ”

One is overdue given his sending-off against Argentina in 1998 and his diminished fitness four years ago. Beckham’s unhappy record extends to Euro 2004, culminating in his botched penalty against Portugal, but it is a measure of the man that he has volunteered to be one of the takers should the same situation arise. “I’m the captain and I have to lead by example. I missed three in a row for England and I can remember the press conference afterwards, me saying that I would carry on taking them and a few people sitting back, going, `What, really?’ But I will take one. It’s the type of person I am. ”

That person now has 88 caps and it seems strange that a campaign was sporadically running for him to be dropped during the qualification process.

World Cup advice for England fans
BBC News – Jun 2, 2006
Garry Mann, 47, from Faversham in Kent, was given a two-year jail sentence and deported to England after being found guilty in Portugal of inciting a riot. A UK judge decided a year later that his trial was unfair and too quick. Mr Mann said England fans should be wary of becoming innocent bystanders caught up in trouble caused by others. He was accused of a breach of the peace after clashes between supporters and Portuguese police in Albufeira in June 2004… He was accused of a breach of the peace after clashes between supporters and Portuguese police in Albufeira in June 2004.
