Chelsea violence: Men sentenced following Cardiff match
Among the men sentenced was a hooligan previous the subject of an investigation by TV's Donal MacIntyre

Twenty-four men have been sentenced for taking part in violence after an FA Cup match between Chelsea and Cardiff City in west London in February 2010.

Ten of them committed violent disorder, while 12 were sentenced for affray and the other two for public disorder.

All were banned from football grounds for between three and eight years.

The clashes were between two separate groups of hooligans, the Chelsea Head Hunters and the Soul Crew of Cardiff, Isleworth Crown Court heard.

One of those convicted was 43-year-old Jason Marriner from Hertfordshire, who was previously the subject of an undercover investigation by TV journalist Donal MacIntyre into hooliganism.

He was sentenced to two years in prison and banned from football grounds for six years after being convicted of violent disorder.

Broken jaw About 6,000 Cardiff fans travelled to London for the fifth round match, which Chelsea won 4-1.

It had a 1200 GMT kick-off on Saturday 13 February.

The Metropolitan and South Wales Police forces joined together and Operation Turnhill, as it was codenamed, saw officers going undercover to spot troublemakers.

One police officer suffered a broken jaw in the violence.

A pregnant woman told the court how she was forced to speed away in her car on Kings Road, near Chelsea's Stamford Bridge ground, because she feared for her life and that of her unborn child.

So far 63 people have been convicted over the violence, which followed the clubs' first meeting in 18 years.

Oh deary me. At least the age of the majority of them shows that this is just some sad old men, along with a few younger impressionable nob-ends, trying to relive their 'glory' days, whatever club they follow.

I witnessed all the fighting from about 10 meters away. Probably the most scared I've been at any football match. Was 30 minutes of utter madness which involved a lighter hitting my head.

Welsh ****!

I'm not boasting about it I'm just saying. I couldn't care less if we ran or not I'm just saying what I've heard.

Maybe what i've heard is a load of s*it and i'm completely wrong. If so enlighten me

Obviously, there are a few of you that are alright, just as the odd Rangers, Leeds or Millwall fan is sound as a pound. However, Chelsea 'fans' seem to be a mixture of hooligans, millionaires from Surrey or recent glory-hunting bandwagon-jumpers.

Jealousy? I spent my youth diluting the pain of supporting Altrincham by watching United conquer all before them. I could do so for around £20, too. Chelsea have never achieved anything that would impress me. I certainly wouldn't pay £60+ to be surrounded by the type of people who turn up at Stamford Bridge.

I know a decent number of Chelsea fans and none of them fall into your three categories. You should be above that kind of silliness really.

I'm not sure why Chelsea fans from Surrey is supposed to be some sort of dig either. Chelsea have always had a lot of fans from Surrey because if you live in Surrey it's your nearest big club. It's like saying Arsenal should relocate to Herts because a lot of fans hail from there. Well durr, of course they do.

Perhaps you're just lucky? ;)

St Albans City ftw. Unfortunately, it seems to be Arsenal and Spurs everywhere round here. A few Cheslea too. Thing is, Luton are a moderately big club and much closer, but nobody seems to support them. If it isn't in the Premier League, it doesn't exist. Apparently.

Well naturally I only move in exalted circles Posted Image Anyway, other fans hatred will only give us succour and we shall grow mightier and mightier as a result. Mwahahahaha.

Pretty poor form for those near Luton to support an opposition team but I guess it's pretty slim pickings in the homes counties generally. Kind of inevitable that people will gravitate towards London.

What a piece of shit Macintyre is, he went undercover 10 years ago to ruin people's lives so why couldn't he leave it at that instead of turning up at court every day. The documentry was edited to make them look as bad as they could, when infact macintyre was looked after by a lot of them during that time. All that being said they are complete idiots especially marriner for being a publicity whore and then starts scrapping with cardiff what does he expect, must be mad to fight at that age I have been arrested and convicted for football violence when I was younger as it is and was very easy to get involved in with a beer inside you doesn't neccessary always make you a bad person in the real life though! Can't get my head round anyone would be fighting these days with the consequences and sentences longer than rapists peadophiles etc over 1 or 2 digs at a football u must be mad!

I don't understand why any of this makes MacIntyre 'a piece of shit'. He showed them up for what they are. Sure, they looked after him, but that's like infiltrating a terrorist organisation and being treated well, it doesn't mean those involved shouldn't be brought to justice.

I absolutely loathe football hooligans. Terrible people.
