There is simply no excuses for the scenes inside the ground, this wasn't over zealous exuberance it was muppets thinking they were hard as nails.

I have read of fans blaming once a year fans, well there looked to me to be plenty of die hard tatooed muppets on the pitch.

I can not believe some of the rubbish that has been written by certain spineless anonymous people on here trying to justify the action because of history.

I even watched idiots trying to get Jack Collison to shke there hand ... ludicrous behaviour and if you people think you are true fans of what WHUFC really are, then you are not.

As for the actions outside the ground, now that's a different matter and the police have for me seriously got this wrong.

Both clubs agreed a sensible ticket allocation that would have been based on many years of experience running football matches, in short, get as many Millwall fans inside the ground and control them in there, but the police seemed to think limit the numbers and they won't come.

That left hundreds of fans outside the ground to get embroiled in the inevitable violence.

As for blaming the boys from the ICF and the Millwall boys, history clearly shows trouble was inevitable.

Four years ago a huge police presence and a zero tolerance policy kept the sport on the back pages, whoever tried to restrict this fixture needs to be removed from authority and never police a football match again, of course this won't happen and the rounds of the police blaming the clubs, clubs blaming the police and the politicians taking cheap shots will die away until the clubs fate will see us drawn against each other again.

This hatred is just a fact of life that will never go away, these media hacks need to walk the street of Belfast, visit the Balkans, downtown Baghdad or have a holiday in Rome during the Rome Derby.

There is a way to resolve this, control it like it was done four years ago, not just hope it won't happen on your shift, it is like a virus, you may not see it, but that doesn't mean it isn't there.
