Meadows fightclub


The Frenchman Returns

The Frenchman Returns

Some videos beginning to emerge of scenes last night. We had spent a leisurely afternoon on Bruntsfield Links but you could see hordes of youngsters descending on the Meadows, laden down with drink. We headed home around 5pm (public toilets were due to close) and missed the carnage.

Best performance all season from David Luiz.

 

Great shot of a bottling

It’s the mess they make that is more distressing than anything else.

Disgraceful. Imagine going out to enjoy the sun for the first time in ages and you go about punching and bottling folk. There’s no situation where that is an acceptable reaction. Should jail the lot of them.

Probably the same bored teenagers smashing the bus windows. 
 

Kinda inevitable when you shut down all the things for them to do. You know they might head to Cinemas, football fields, clubs, pubs or they are old enough instead of fighting at the meadows.

We all done daft stuff when we were younger when we were bored. But it never involved being violent or breaking people’s stuff. There’s zero excuse for behaviour like that.

My daughter was pissed off at me, yesterday for not allowing her to go to the meadows with friends. 
 

Hope the boy in the grey who appears to bottle the boy from behind gets done. 
 

Quite enjoyed the police getting battered into the arseholes towards the end. Wish had been a few more of them with baton on scene tbh,

"****in hell... this is ****in insane bro... what is going on... look bro... that was ****in sick boy..."

 

All in his best Watsons accent  :rofl:

 

Must be something about the colour grey and tracksuits that turn you into a tool though.

We were over on the Links too. Saw a mass of movement over at the Meadows at about 7.30 the there were police chasing folk about everywhere.

Not at all - pubs will be tightly regulated and socially distanced with fixed time slots.

It wasn't last time, why should it be this time?

 

Everyone signed in to the pub to enter, pre-booked time slots, drinks served at tables, limited number of people per table e.g. 2 to 4, etc.

 

Big groups won't get into pubs except some of the dodgy ones that ignore the rules and will probably lose their license.

No, but went to a few in the city centre.

 

The type of pubs you have in your head will risk losing their license and being permanently shut down.

Indeed... maybe so... but that would be after some of the carnage predicted by 3fingersreid in the post you replied to.

Except its all hypothetical based on flawed assumptions as to the number of these pubs that will break the rules and where they will be located.

Hypothetical it is.  Flawed is only your opinion.  I agree with the original poster.  Imo there will be examples similar to that predicted.  I would also amplify in that some disturbances will be in evidence in the streets where pub rules and organisations do not apply.

 

You have nothing to worry about at the safe,  organised venues you visited.

Haven't been to any myself but I know there are pubs who are still operating to this day.

 

The City Centre pubs and locals were night and day when they reopened last time.

Hasn’t it always been the case. There have always been fights in and around pubs/clubs every weekend up and down the country.

Yep, one of the pubs near me has definitely had some shady opening going on. It’s got a mostly disused function suite behind it hidden from the street and I’ve seen a few people outside it smoking recently.

Tidying up crap left behind by shite paggering neds is an admirable thing to do. Very public spirited and worthy of thanks.

 

It doesnt make one a hero though.

As others have mentioned, it's the rubbish they leave that gets me more than anything else. I fight a constant battle to keep the paths and woods near my home clean and I have to spend a few hours each Monday/Tuesday specifically cleaning up broken glass etc left by the young teams after their swallies over the weekend so that dogs and local wildlife don't get injured.

Hero: "a person who is admired for their courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities."

 

I don't consider myself a hero for the litter picking I do, of course, but I have tremendous admiration for all those that voluntarily try to make communities safer, happier, cleaner places and given how much apathy is shown by the majority of folk, I don't think that the word "hero" is particularly out of place in this context.

Have the authorities done any real studies as to the reasons for the unreasonable stages of violence coming out in the area. That was quite a fight, I honestly cannot remember anything to that level of numbers, kids throwing missiles at buses, is it Covid restrictions, is it a reflection of disrespect for authority and or police. If not controlled or considered how long before it incurs the loss of life, and when it does how do you regain control at that stage.

 

As one does when having achieved elderlyness the inclination is to look back and recall such behaviors in other Countries, but seeing it in the land and area of your birth and youth is quite disturbing.

It's a funny one mate.

There seems an explosion of litter picking going on out my way.

Public spirited it certainly is and I applaud them (not physically:lol:, I did go over to a couple the other day and thank/congratulate them)

Its just shameful that people want make our country such a tip in the first place.

Well done Red.

As I said in my last post, the amount  of litter picking going on in my area is incredible. There are bags of trash piled up everywhere.

Just hope it has an effect on the droppers.

Although  a good whack is alcohol related, probably not.

exactly how difficult would it to be to take a bin bag with you and then put it next to a bin so it can be collected when the fixed bins are emptied

Many thanks for doing that, Tommy. I seldom have folk even talking to me when I'm litter picking - perhaps they think I'm doing it as some form of community service because I've been convicted of something. :) The occasional person who thanks me, or at least talks to me about what I'm doing, cheers me up no end. I don't live for that, not in the slightest, I do what I do to help nature and wildlife, but it's nice from time to time to get a wee pat on the back or have a wee chat with someone else who appreciates the littering problem we have.

Witness someone being bottled = "that's the best content I've ever got".
