It's like that in most of Europe... Try walking around in Rotterdam wearing an Ajax jersey, and see if you'll make it out of there in one piece. The same with wearing a Feyenoord or PSV jersey in some parts of Amsterdam.

About 10 years ago there was a big battle on a wide open field in Beverwijk, a small town about 20 miles away from A'damn, in which hundreds of Feyenoord supporters were on one side of the field, and hundreds of Ajax supporters were on the other side. Armed with sticks, bats and whatnot they ran and crashed into each other fighting, just like you'd see in the ancient war movies nowadays. One guy died.

a bit different though , for glasgow it is a political/ religious case , now for most of the other cases of football violence it is the "good old firms" meeting and smashing their skulls in , the old school hooliganism . But i must admit that even hooliganism is very often infiltrated by politically motivated people , usually far right movements seeking "soldiers" .
