  1. They do it all the time. If there is no trouble then they cannot justify the number of “police officers” at the matches. Simple economics means they have to cause trouble. Happened in the 70’s and 80’s in England with off duty police officers actually starting trouble then disappearing into the crowd. Overtime and time in lieu are a powerful aphrodisiac for the “forces” of law.
