[Арсенал] - МЮ - 27/08/1999
Rival football fans were involved in a mass brawl at Holloway Road Tube station following Sunday's ill-tempered match between Arsenal and Manchester United at Highbury. British Transport Police have launched an inquiry after violence erupted. Some fans spilled out into the Highbury area and a chase ensued, which ended at the station. A police horse was punched by one hooligan. Eight people were arrested during and after the tense match, which ended in a 2-1 defeat for Arsenal. Inspector David Dickason, who was in charge of the policing of stations, said: "There is an inquiry into the Holloway Road incident, but at the other stations there were no reported problems. No officers were injured during the disturbances as far as I know." One United fan said that clashes broke out around the stadium directly after the game.
"I've been going to Arsenal games for the last 11 years and this is the worst violence I've seen since 1990 when Manchester United won 6-2 in the Littlewoods Cup at Highbury," he said. "There was a swarm of people around Drayton Park station and there was pandemonium. "There were lots of scuffles where the coaches park. There was a really ugly atmosphere, and there did not seem to be a big police presence.
There were fights all over the place." But Superintendent Andy Smith, of Holloway police, who is responsible for overall policing at home games, said "Our strategy was to identify and shadow known trouble-makers and provide an appropriate level of policing," he said. "There were two very organised elements we were able to frustrate. A 38-year-old man collapsed inside the stadium during the game and died from a suspected heart attack in hospital. Police said the death was not connected with any disturbances. // BBC
МЮ - Андерлехт - 13/09/2000

Лидс - МЮ - 03/03/2001
After the game United left the ground and turned left, we have done this now for the past 3 years and in the last two seasons we would meet under the tunnel and then walk round to that roundabout and then up that road that leads to the foot of the bridge. This time though the police covered that so instead we just went straight on, there were only 3 coppers trying to stop us and with the road being so wide we managed to keep going. 10 United at the front went into about the same number of Leeds and chased them up to the bridge until we came to the line of old bill.
Then the Leeds who were waiting there came at us but there were loads of coppers there so they were pushed back. We came back down the road, but the police attention was on us so the rest of the lads managed to go left onto the roundabout and by the time I got there were going through a hole in a fence which led onto some playing fields. We ran through the playing fields and into an estate and by the time I arrived it was already going off at the end of the road in a little corner which led onto the the next road. Leeds were tooled up, there were bins, bricks, bikes, for sale signs, chairs, big planks of wood the lot. Now when you have weapons I think it is a mistake to throw them because all you are doing there is giving the other firm weapons the throw back. But Leeds did throw them, as did United, which led to a couple of minutes of the missiles going back and forth, Leeds losing ground slightly, and injuries on both sides.
I don't know how many Leeds had there because I had my eyes on more important things than counting them, like the bricks that kept just missing my head. What I did think was that they had a lot at the back who threw a load of shit and then got off when we advanced, and there were about 10 at the front who really wanted it and were game as fuck.
After a couple of minutes most of United saw some other Leeds down a ginnle and went for them, this led to the lads at the corner thinking we were running and they came out onto the street, however we just turned and ran at them and pushed them back into the corner. At this point the only two coppers present tried to stand between us, they were the two United and Leeds coppers. A massive plank of wood hit the United copper on the back of the head, thrown by Leeds, and they got out of the way. Their faces said, 'we'll leave it to you lot'.
We backed Leeds further back, into the next road and then the robocops arrived so we went back round and walked through the side streets, then Leeds came at us again, with another hail of bricks. More fighting, again Leeds end up getting off with one of their main kids, name starts with J?, getting knocked spark out by one of United's legends because he stood while his mates did one on him. After this we were rounded up by the coppers, we got to a pub, and Leeds were there again but it was too late now, police all over us. By this time they looked to have about 60. Whether this is all they had, or a lot had got off during the row I don't know. Leeds seemed to be all over the city centre but they were too late. Credit to them for having it for so long but it was our day and we got a great result. // View from the Terrace

The Red Army is a hooligan firm who follow English football club Manchester United. Although today the term Red Army is used mostly to refer to fans of the club in general, the hooligan firm have been one of the largest and most feared firms in British football. Firm members – and the firm itself – are sometimes known as the Men in Black, due to the members dressing in all black clothing.
The Red Army was the name given to Manchester United away support during the 1970s. Most notoriously in 1974–75, when United had been relegated from the top flight of English football and played one season in the Second Division, the Red Army caused mayhem at grounds up and down the country, visiting stadiums where they would at times outnumber the home support. Together with a Bolton Wanderers fan stabbing a young Blackpool fan to death behind the Spion Kop at Bloomfield Road in Blackpool during a Second Division match on 24 August 1974, this led to the introduction of crowd segregation and fencing at football grounds in England.
The Red Army were featured in the 1985 documentary 'Hooligan', based around West Ham United's trip to Old Trafford in the FA Cup sixth round. It shows the Red Army fighting with the Inter City Firm (ICF) around Manchester. They were also featured in The Real Football Factories documentary series. An episode of the BBC drama, Life on Mars centred on football hooliganism by Manchester United fans in the 1970s.
Tony O'Neill the man behind the firm, a former member of the firm, has released two books about the firm, Red Army General in 2005 concentrating on the 1970s and early 1980s, and The Men in Black in 2006 which told the history from the mid-1980s until the present day.
Their activities have declined since the late 1980s as football hooliganism in general has become a less prolific problem than it was for more than a decade before that.
