Man Utd’s match in Brighton from 1985… according to The Simpsons!

Bizarrely, the Simpsons’ episode ‘Marge Gamer’ (Season 18 Episode 17) features a feisty scene from Manchester United’s match in Brighton.

“”Brighton, England. 1985. Manchester United play Sussexton Hamptonshire Unleaf (?), when a deadly riot breaks out in the stands. 22 years later, this riot is still going on.”

It wasn’t the only time that American depiction of the English game focused on hooliganism.
