A group of Tottenham fans were attacked by up to 40 masked man in Rome. At least ten people have been injured and one 25 year old man is in serious condition after being stabbed. The owner of the bar said the fans had been minding their own business when a planned attacked by Lazio ultras set upon them.

This is not the first time this has happened in Rome. Shouldnt Italy and the football authorites be trying to stamp this out rather than "advising" English fans to be careful travelling or to stay away??

Bit of a cowardly act. Bet they wouldn't be so forth coming if 100 of Milwalls 'firm' were in the bar.

There is a big problem with "ultras" in Italy, so much so that the stadium is not seen as a place to take the family. I know lots of people that like football but never go to the stadium because of the danger.

The problem for English fans is that Italians admiringly stereotype the majority of english fans as hooligans (not helped by the recent plethora of hooligan related films etc) therefore a group of english fans is always going to be targeted here by the ultras who want to prove themselves against the "best".

More particularly in Rome their is a huge problem with stabbing the lower back or leg from behind, not just english fans but any rival supporters. It has become a signature form of attack by the roma ultras.
