    And the next one will go further, and the next, etc until someone is seriously injured.

    I think it already is.
    But justice has to serve the good of society - he will probably struggle to get a job for a few years now, impacting him and three others and the taxpayer and society.
    For what was, essentially, very little.

    Fine, community order, suspended sentence and football life ban would do it. Even the ten year ban should be enough. At least then he can warn others.

    That argument doesn't work - the deterered for someone going further (I presume we mean stabbing or similar) is already there. A serious crime like that carries a serious punishment. And most people involved in the mindset to do that will already be exposed to social circles that will show them what the punishment is like and what prison is really like.

    This guy was clearly remorseful of a stupid rush of blood - I don't imagine the kind of person that would "go further" would be remorseful. Indeed, it would have to be premeditated. (Or coincidence with the unlikely event of going to Sainsbury's to buy a knife before the game so you make dinner after)

    The Neanderthals who copy and go further won't care about deterents, actually I suspect some of them will see it as a badge of honour as in 'I showed them how it should have been done'. It's trendy atm and the sooner it can be taken out of the public eye the better.
    And doesn't seem like it's that difficult to get a knife around London these days.

    Wasn't there a rule that football related offences gives double the punishment as if the incident took place in a non-football environment?
