The supporters of Hull City, newly-promoted to football's Premier League, are now the hardest and most feared set of hooligans ever to grace the top flight of the English game, says an expert.
City fans, known as the City Psychos, are regarded throughout the leagues as "mentalists", and the least likely to run away in 'ropey' situations, such as "gonna-get-your-head-kicked-in" situations.
Fans of other clubs such as Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and West Ham, have all been pretenders to the throne in recent years, but the Psychos have merely been "limbering up" in the lower divisions, waiting for the opportunity to play in the big league - a wait which has lasted 104 years.
Now though, with the team in the Premiership for the first time, those aforementioned pretenders are trembling in fear as the arrival of the City Psychos draws ever nearer.
