Parents on the sidelines at a football match are pretty much capable of anything. From axe wielding fathers (yes, it happened during my brother’s Saturday football days in south west London), to worried mothers demanding the opposition player receives his marching orders following an innocuous challenge, come Saturday and Sunday morning’s up and down the country, parents are let loose on the sidelines, and anything is possible.
The latest parental punch-up comes from a junior match in Spain between UD Telde and UD Guia in the Canary Islands. Two fathers, one from each side, squared up to each other at the Estadio de Pablo Hernandez which resulted in a fist fight. A pretty brutal fist fight at that.

We’re not angry, we’re just disappointed.
