English Lesson - disappointing...

There's been a little bit of discussion on how to deal with violence surrounding football matches in Italy: both the government and the sports officers have been been more than criticized both internally and in UK, mainly for being too soft and ultimately unable to implement a model that is claimed to be working in UK. In a nutshell Italy hasn't learned the English Lesson yet. I'm not so sure, though, that this model is as effective as it is perceived: if nothing happens within the stadia, the violence could pretty much exacerbate just in their surroundings, as it actually did last night in Manchester. I'm under the impression that the sole difference is that the "show" can go on, no matter what happens less than a mile away behind the scenes... I think this has something to deal with media perception, and does not really solve the problem.
