Well, if Trainspotting is anything to go by then they should have included another answer.

exactly if it's a small person C/ is likely. It's a universal truth that only little people cause pub fights.

Spod, do you often pick fights with short people at the Stretford end?

Shame really, as there's plenty of agents deserving a good slap. Although I doubt many agents can be found at the Stretford End on a Saturday afternoon.

There's usually a few cockney barrow boy types on the shuttle up from Heathrow on a Saturday morning...

That description applies to many agents. Cockney geezers deserve a good pasting anyway, agent or not....

Then you just have to hope you haven't met a professional light weight boxer. :D

I would say that actually smaller people are normally more dangerous than what they look like. Most of them are either boxers or karate experts. Would be cautious with them. The easier targets then, are the medium weight. :rolleyes

Great xenophobic comment Spod.

I have observed here before that the best size for staying out of trouble is to be neither so small/timid looking that you are easy pickings or so big/tough loooking that you look like a suitable challenge for the macho sort. Just being ugly with a nasty looking scowl and a temper to match works quite well I find.

Karate expertise would be nice tho. Every time I have gone along to some course for martial arts I seem to have got the wrong night/venue and ended up doing flower arranging.

Actually it wasn't directed at Italians per se, merely to illicit a reaction from you as you seem to be the forums cry baby!

Franco, lightweight boxers aren't paritcularly small. If you're looking for small fighters then it's safer to consider the bantam and straw weights...then you get some really freaky looking fights :eek
