Half-and-half scarves?

Wednesday 14 January 2015, Ipswich Town 0 Southampton 1, FA Cup 3rd Round replay - Portman Road

It seemed to be a perfect day - almost a full house, cheap tickets and a game under floodlights but it went wrong before kick off. I saw someone selling half Ipswich, half Southampton scarves!

Then we lost what was a game of little excitement with few chances but it was the sight of those half scarves that upset me most.

I then heard a Manchester United fanzine had stopped producing fanzines after 26 years - reason? Not low sales but they just lost the desire to battle anymore, as they put it - " We can't stand the stench of modern football anymore" and "football now is happy-clappy families, half-and-half scarves, tourists and selfie sticks, there's no point in trying to fight that"
