Fan Storms Pitch in Championship Game, Punches Player: Today's Birmingham-Aston Villa match in the Championship was interrupted by a git charging onto the pitch and punching Aston Villa player Jack Grealish in the head from behind. Grealish, who was knocked to the ground before a steward grabbed the fan, required no treatment. He later scored the only goal in Aston Villa's win and leapt into the crowd during the pugnacious Second City derby.

Scary. Time for an empty stadium for some games

Apparently the idiot Saturday inspired a copycat Sunday in London.

If a hooligan were to appear at one of our O-65 soccer games, we would simply halt play and teach the bastard a lesson with our team defibrillator.

What about the steward that took a swipe at Grealish after the game and then got arrested on the spot? Seems like a fun Derby, that.
