I'm sure there will be incidents in Leeds, but to say there has been already is silly.
Indeed. Just a run of the mill event in that neck of the woods unfortunately.
There is potential for bother between Leeds & Bradford but its nowt like it would be if it were, say, Leeds v Man Utd where all the old nutcases who should know better come out of the woodwork.
Most of the bad areas in Leeds are well away from the City Centre too, so any mob on its way to loot and pillage would be spotted a mile off.
