"Exploding flares?"

I had a mate whose flares were set on fire by a discarded cigarette butt landing in his turn-ups, but they didn't explode, it was more of a smouldering effect. This was in 1973, mind.

Don't believe everything they tell you about the loveable bin dippers. They only go on about Hillsborough so no one mentions Heysel

This is a disgrace.

The picture is just some guy posing.
The covering article seems to say "things are only kept under control because of the superb organisation between police, stewards and the club"

Reading FC may be utter crap.....but as an institution it is probably one of the few things to put the backwater town of Reading on the map in any way, other than a yearly music festival. Absymal article which is disrespectful to the supporters of the club (ie. this dreaful local rag's potential readership). I would suggest that they apologise, but we've seen through recent events in the criminal courts just how arrogant and self-important the media are in this country.

Indeed. It's in such poor taste, it makes you wonder if the Chronicle's editor has lost his reason. Or has a score to settle.
