Just be glad you haven't got the fan problems that the Netherlands and to some extent England has, as England has got better in last ten years.
I support Ajax but live in Utrecht, and if I want to go to watch Ajax play at Utrecht's Stadium I have to go to Amsterdam and get on the coach to Utrecht with the rest of the Ajax fans, and are generally escorted into stadiums by police as away fans, then have to sit in a caged off area in the corner of the stadium, on the opposite side from the Bunnik side, where the hardcore fans (read hooligans), sit. And each game there are fights up and down the street after, with riot police out.
Strange really as the Netherlands is such a crime free and nice, laid back, friendly country in general!
I hope these 'fans' are caught and punished appropriately for their crime. Hate a minority giving a bad name to a whole fanbase. (Have experience of it being a Man City and Ajax fan in football!)
