Pub brawl death linked to clash between fans

A Saturday night brawl at the Cutty Sark in Thamesmead that led to the death of a Plumstead man has been linked to a possible clash between Spurs and Charlton fans, with suggestions that the fight at a charity event may have been pre-arranged. This would be somewhat more credible if one substituted 'Millwall' for Spurs, but there is no real history of animosity between Charlton and the North London club. Nor is there a major record of Charlton 'fans' being involved in collective violence against rival clubs.

Duncan Charles Frame, a 52-year-old man from Edington Road in Plumstead, was found unconscious at 23:30 following the brawl, which left many people injured. The Metropolitan police have made it clear they are considering the death as murder.

'Although we retain an open mind regarding the motive, one possible line of enquiry is that the fight was between rival groups of football fans, from Tottenham and Charlton Athletic,' the Met said.

Spurs have a pretty mean firm who are supposed to be the toughest in London according to a recent documentary. I agree they are not normally our most ardent rivals.
