Maybe they need to make the blocks surrounding the away fans designated "Chap" sections and just let everyone have their fun?Tuesday 12 October
England 1-1 Hungary

Left the office at 5.15 and was outside the Volunteer in Baker Street by 5.40 for a nice couple of pints of Neck Oil (at a very reasonable price compared to the likes of The Globe (spit)). Then onto Marylebone for one in there before catching the 7.03 to Wembley Stadium Station.
That was as good as it got as the game was utter dirge. Hungary made life difficult but this was the worst I’ve seen England play in a long time. No creative spark except for Grealish who was inexplicably taken off midway through the second half as Southgate changed system. Best moment was easily seeing Ollie come on.
The only entertainment came from the Hungary section where the cops moved in to make an arrest following a disturbance after England players took the knee. Incredibly, the OB got completely battered and made a hasty retreat onto the concourse and were not seen again for the rest of the night, leaving only a thin piece of netting separating the black shirted ultras from the England family section.
Another Wembley cock-up for the Met.
There aren’t many games I go to where I come away thinking I hadn’t bothered but this was one. Saving grace was being home from Wembley in under two hours.
