"Noo York Ceety is a FatSchit Ceety !"

<< WE HAVE A 76-5 AT THE CORNER OF MULBERRY AND CANAL...REPEAT WE HAVE A 76-5 AT THE CORNER OF MULBERRY AND CANAL...CROWD CHEERING A SOCCER GAME INSTEAD OF THE YANKS OR METS...REPEAT CROWD CHEERING A SOCCER GAMEZzzt>>>

Fucking Disgrace. Thank God I didn't go there. Fucking pigs. I would invite all of that crowd to future games in the Ironbound in New Jersey, where the cops direct traffic with Portuguese flags after major wins.

(By the way, I'm going to post the same thing on YouTube)

Fucking scummy Italian-American hooligans. FIFA should think long and hard before letting either the USA or Italy play again at a World Cup.

It's frankly shocking that normal fans of other teams, like England, have to be constantly subjected to this kind of behaviour.

I was in New York on world cup final day 1998. A little while after the game I was walking through Times Square when a conga line of about 100 French supporters suddenly appeared and brought the hordes of taxis across several lanes to a bemused standstill. This state of affairs lasted for about 90 seconds until police from the nearby station ran across to see what all the fuss was about. The French disappeared as spontaneously as they had arrived.

Latent stirrings of an actual interest in football among New York's Italian community then. There was little evidence of much in June 1994, when the Azzurri were actually playing down the road.

There was plenty of evidence of NYPD cuntery back then too though - fuckers baton-charged a pint out of my hand on Second Avenue after Ireland-Italy.

good video. the police in germany were very different. i couldn't see people drinking in that video, whereas the police in nuremberg or frankfurt, say, were dealing with tens of thousands of england fans downing hundreds of thousands of litres of beer while belting out world war 2 songs. in nuremberg the police stood around in pairs giving people directions. i can't remember them having to take a single action against the crowd. in frankfurt they lined up against one of the walls of the romerplatz and watched the crowd. eventually they moved to cut the square in two, they did this without hitting anyone or screaming weirdly like one of the cops in the video.

later on they even took a casualty, when a policewoman got a flying bottle in the face, and still they didn't start beating up the crowd. what do you think would happen if a new york police officer was bottled at a football street party?

Wow, Italians in Little Italy. The one time I was in Little Italy, there were Italians on like one block of Mulberry, and everyone else was Chinese.

I liked it.

Jokes aside, those guys and ragazzas were rooting for the wrong team, there were some extremely rowdy celebrations after Ireland beat Italy in 94 in San Francisco. Hundreds of out-of-status kids blocking traffic and sloshing their guinnesses on foggy boulevards, with SF's finest smiling on...

I hate the way Americans pronounce that place. Liddliddly. Urgh.

E10's right about '94. I was there too. I found a bar full of Italian fans, but there was no sign of interest out on the pavement.

I was really hoping that bald guy at the end was gonna say "They just don't understand Ultra culture."

What does "out-of-status" mean?

I love the way Italian Americans talk. Anyway, it's nice to see that places in big American cities are actually celebrating a football victory.

Not Americans, Rhino, New Yawkuhs. One of the few rules my mother had about our behavior was that we could not under any circumstances speak that way in public. And you have nailed the real problem with the 94 World Cup. The atmosphere in the grounds was pretty good (I was at the Ireland-Italy game), but there was next to no atmosphere anywhere else. The fact that Giants Stadium is in a different state and not terribly easy to get to (no direct train or subway, only buses)obviously didn't help the situation in NYC.

Inca, "Chinatown" has been encroaching on "Little Italy" for at least 25 years, most of Little Italy's original residents having moved out of the city or died, whereas there have been several waves of new Chinese immigration to NYC during that period. For a more authentic "Italian-American" experience in the Five Boroughs try Arthur Avenue in the Bronx, Besonhurst (of Saturday Night Fever fame) or Bay Ridge in Brooklyn or pretty much anything other than St. George that calls itself a town on Staten Island.

You'd be surprised at how Liddiliddily changed the past 2-3 years, ursus. Yes, about 10 years ago it seemed like it would get completely swallowed up by Chinatown, and yes, you'd barely see any celebration during 94-98-02. However, during the past few summers they shut Mulberry Street down so it becomes an open-air pedestrian-only street, and all of the restaurants/cafes/bars have all consolidated and circled the wagons.

This past WC just about every bar/restaurant in Little Italy advertised having WC games, which corresponds with the way viewership exploded in the US this time around. There was also a huge banner saying "Forza Italia" going across the street, and "Forza USA" on the other side. I would've liked to see the crowd for that game (who knows, maybe the cops saw someone slagging off Bruce Arena's Boys, and said "We'll see after you win the final.")

E-10, if you were on 2nd Ave, you must've been near Paddy O'Reillys. My roomate said it was a bigger celebration than when the Rangers won the Stanley Cup.

Interesting JV, that is indeed a change, though it sounds a bit artificial. Have Italian-Americans actually started moving back into the neighborhood, or is it just sort of a San Gennaro theme park thing?

One of the five million great things about the Ironbound is that it has largely avoided that kind of ersatz commercialism (or at least it had as of 2001).

JV, we were in a bar called Jamieson's, if memory serves. And yeah it was a fantastically manic evening.
