Bradford v Crawley, Manchester United v Arsenal, and Hunter v Lee in football's biggest ever fights

Football is full of inaccurate cliches. "It's a game of two halves" becomes redundant in games which go to extra time. "There are no easy games at this level," as trotted out by international managers everywhere rather forgets the fact that San Marino and Liechenstein are potential opponents. Perhaps most incorrect is the reliably solemn pronouncement so often heard whenever we see fisticuffs on a football pitch: "We don't want to see that." Yes we do.
