Violence is All Part of the Game Now

Subject

Commentary on violence in soccer

Description

This opinion piece examines what the authors refer to as the "integral part of the current 'image' of professional football: violence, on and off the field. The authors go through a series of violent events at professional matches in Great Britain. The focus is on Matt Busby, the manager of Manchester United, who pleaded with local supporters to halt their violent actions during a match against Arsenal with the second-leg match against Estudiantes de La Plata for the 1968 Intercontinental Cup on the horizon. The fear was that Man United supporters might escalate their behavior based on reports of how the English team were supposedly treated in Buenos Aires.
