in the bushes there?

to march towards us.

Legia's an old whore... | ...Legia FC must be beaten.

Let the horses pass.

Sure, we're all a bit afraid...

We're standing face to face with one | another and we are slightly anxious.

But it's not fear or chickening. | There's too much adrenaline for that...'s just that-at the back of your | mind-you try to be careful.

How do you feel after the fight?

It depends. | Sometimes you feel all right...

...other times you feel bad-it's when | they kick you too hard in the head.

But it's ok when you're just bruised | and still have all teeth...'ll have your skull x-rayed,

take a deep breath | and feel fine again.

It's worse when some problems | come out of this.

Health problems, I mean.

- Where are we now? | - Neptune's square.

This is where we hang out.

Just come here and you're bound | to meet somebody.

We come here when we don't have | anything to do.

Sometimes, we're here | in the evenings.

But we're not doing any harm...

...then the police come and start | accusing us of everything.

Move out. F***!

They tell us we assault or rob people. | Later, they send some summons... our friends that they've | beaten someone.

Bullshit, we are just | standing there.

Beat him like a dog!

I'm fed up with the police 'cause | they're not doing what they should be.

We went to Arka vs. Lechia game.

They dragged us out of the line | and insulted us...

...treating us like hooligans.

When we were escorted, | the policemen were...

...making remarks:

"They aren't real hooligans, | they don't even wrangle...

...but Lechia will show them". | So, why should we like police?

They're entering the field.

They are on the field now.

under control...

there's order on the field.

and stones at the policemen.

Several people were badly beaten.

with a knife...

... and died on the spot.

to come.

... forever...

... with you...

People perceive us as bandits.

They think we aim | at innocent citizens.

They are wrong. | We are not like this.

Hooligans are ordinary people... | ...just normal, young guys.

We don't stand out of the | crowd too much.

The only difference is we have

shorter hair and wear | blouses with hoods...

...with a "hooligan" sign on them.

Beat him!

... then hard f***ing until morning...

the motherf***er...

Get on the top of him!

First such event was organized | in Warsaw.

And there was one in Szczecin, | too.

I think it will develop in the future. | It's quite a popular sport abroad.

Here, we are still in the stone age.

What districts do they come from?

All sorts of. But mainly from these | large house-of-blocks-areas...

From poor families, I think.

Probably eighty per cent of their | parents are alcoholics...

...and kids try to do something | by themselves.

Usually, they stay of out schools.

Eventually, either they succeed | or follow their parents' path.

What district are you from?

Downtown. It's a more of a peaceful | area, I think.

You can allow the ones | who have tickets.

Get up! It's not that bad!

Get your head out!

I've got six men at the entrance, | they're without shields or truncheons.

- I'm not drunk. Let me in, please. | - Let him in, man.

I'll be polite. I'm not drunk.

a steel barrier...

- At the gate where they broke it.

- Continue to monitor it. Ok?

That's one idiot.

poke yourself with these bars.

He's going to make himself a bat.

Watch the other yellow gate there.

They are tampering with it. Too.

- You go last. | - They'll waste me there, man...

Don't worry. The police are everywhere. | You'll be safe.
