Wales fans turned on each other at Spain game

PA­THETIC... just pa­thetic. The prob­lem with hard­core sup­port­ers is that they have a false sense of en­ti­tle­ment. It was £5 for kids to get in and many Welsh young­sters were see­ing their first Welsh game last night and the hard­core choose to at­tack them with vul­gar­ity, the hard­core are short sighted and prone to mob men­tal­ity. I WOULD say if there were 8,000 empty seats at the Cardiff City Sta­dium for the Ir­ish game and 50,000 sold for the Spain game last night, 30,000 came to watch Spain play not Wales or just to say they were there. Prin­ci­pal­ity has turned into an event-go­ers par­adise (rugby or foot­ball), hard-core sup­port­ers are al­ways go­ing to be out­num­bered in a sta­dium so big in a coun­try so small. THE choice of venue is surely about what prod­uct is on of­fer. Last night Spain had a lot to of­fer and pretty good play­ers – re­sult 50,000 so the venue was right.
