Tickets nostalgia #1: Dukla Prague away

Was inter-railing with my friend Andy and we went to this purely because of the Half Man Half Biscuit track, “All I want for Christmas is a Dukla Prague Away Kit“.

Twenty years ago, Prague was a pretty different place, with very little English spoken so even finding the stadium was an achievement. My main memory was how nasty the atmosphere was. It was a local derby of course, and one of the teams (I forget which) was somehow linked to the police and there was no love lost. 

In the end behind the goal, the local thugs had modelled themselves on 70s/80s English hooligans, and it was both saddening and terrifying to see West Ham banners and Union Jacks held as symbols of hate.
