Football violence

I didn't go to the match on Saturday, and I'm glad I made that decision.

But - a 5.30pm kickoff, with the pubs open all day beforehand, for a game that everyone , but everyone, knew would be tricky, and which was built up to be even more so by the media.

That doesn't excuse the shameful behaviour of those who were violent, but please, a bit of common sense next time....

One of my favourite Eurovision singers, Chiara, has been selected to sing for Malta again - its an excellent song, and I really hope can do well.

As you say, I don't think that a 5.30 KO excuses the violence. What's more, people should be able to enjoy one (or several) drinks before the game and still enjoy the match in a good-natured spirit.
