Cardiff Fans Arrested After Brawl
Cardiff City fans were involved in ugly scenes towards the end of Saturday night when traouble ensued at Cardiff Central Station.
The violent clashes were between Cardiff City fans, out after an evening of heavy drinking following a 1-0 home defeat by Sunderland, and Swansea City fans making their way home from a 2-0 defeat in Millwall.
The trouble began after high-spirited banter between the two sets of fans got slighly more menacing and around 40 fans were involved in an ugly brawl which spilled out onto the tracks.
5 men were arrested at the scene, but the incident could have been far worse given the danger associated with the fight spilling onto the tracks.
Once again Cardiff City fans have been implicated in the kind of pathetic behaviour that has marred the clubs reputation and hindered their progress. While the small-scale action of a few mindless thugs should not detract from the huge steps taken in recent years, these incidents are the sort that can linger in the memory and tarnish the reputation of Cardiff City FC.
