    Soccer Hooligans - Notts County coaches attacked after Wolves game

    Notts County fans have said they were ambushed by "brick-throwing yobs" after the team's Carling Cup defeat by Wolverhampton on Tuesday night.
    Three supporters' coaches were damaged, one severely, as they were driven out of a coach park near Wolves' Molineux ground.
    One female passenger, a 78-year-old, was treated in hospital after being hit on the head with a brick.
    The match was a stewards-only fixture with no police presence.
    Iris Smith, chair of Notts County Supporters' Club, was also on one of the coaches. She described the attack as "absolutely dreadful" and said youths had been hiding in trees and bushes.
    She also claimed that police had failed to provide protection to the away supporters.
    I'd like to refer Ms Smith to the agreement between the clubs to save money by not paying for police at the fixture.

    "Brick throwing yobs" WTH is a yob? Man, I wish we spoke the same language!
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    In Britain, as the word 'yobb' came out of the London back slang and into more general English usage, it and latterly 'yobbo' have meant 'working class, adolescent, male person'. Within his own culture, he was not necessarily seen as uncouth, though a person writing about him rather than speaking of him was likely to be of another social class and prone to seeing him as loutish.
    Dr. C. T. Onions, an editor of the Oxford English Dictionary, seems not to have noticed the word before he published the XYZ section of the dictionary in 1921 but the later supplement notes the use of 'yob' as meaning 'boy' in the working-class youth context, from 1859. This implies that the word had by that stage come out from the back slang argot into ordinary English usage. In the dictionary supplement's references, it is possible to detect a slow drift in the word's meaning, towards the 'Ruffian' interpretation, the new emphasis becoming clear from about 1927.
    'Yobbo' appears from 1922 when its meaning does not clearly emphasize the ruffian. Its meaning drifts clearly towards the 'ruffian' interpretation by 1956, though a reference of 1938 calls a yobbo a 'Street Rough'.
    In Britain today this word is sometimes superseded by the newer term "Chav".

    Sheesh, I got the impression a "yob" is was what we refer to as thug, so the question was somewhat rhetorical, but thank you for your rather lengthy discourse!

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

    I thought "yob" meant "job" around here due to the accents
