That one didn't work for me.

This one did.

To emphasise the point we had both sets of hooligans on the one train
and a load of police. The rival "fans" were segregated from each other but 
unfortunately not from us. I think one policeman summed it up for me  by 
shouting at the hooligans.  "Oi behave yourselves! There are normal people on 
the train!"

Singing?  Now that _was_ pure terror. Having an ear for music not only was it 
deafening but since each one of them was off key, in a different key, the 
cacophonous assault on the eardrums was utter torture.

This was definitely one of life's more interesting experiences. Interesting 
like the Chinese curse, "May you live in interesting times.":-). It is not an 
experience I would care to repeat in a hurry.
