    If I remember correctly, some soccer match in Egypt caused a war which included aerial bombing

    Of course I am aware of the discontent and disenfranchisement of the 'working class' (those that make up the bulk of Football supporters) at the time of Thatcher's reign, but I'm not convinced, on the whole, that Football Hooliganism had much to do with a Political statement in the sense, that you say. Have you any links to back your claim?

    Here's a good link for a general view
