Man arrested after bomb threat at Portsmouth vs Sunderland play-off clash
[ChronicleLive] A man has been arrested after allegedly threatening to 'kill 150 fans' at Sunderland's crucial play-off second leg against Portsmouth.

Police confirmed a 22-year-old, from Northallerton, North Yorkshire, was arrested in the early hours of this morning on suspicion of making threats to kill and remains in police custody at this time.

A series of threats were posted on Twitter referencing the Manchester Arena bombing which killed 23 people in May 2017.

"I wounder (sic) how many Portsmouth fans I can shoot everyone remember the Manchester arena bombing just imagine fratton park going bang well let's find out tomorrow," read the initial post.

It was followed by: "Bomb bomb fratton park went bang the Portsmouth fans all died Haha going to be fun tomorrow headline news."

The Twitter account has since been suspended with Portsmouth ramping up security at Fratton Park ahead of the League One play-off semi final contest.

#1 Killing threats aside, this guy has nothing on Croatian / Greek football supporters, who are true psychos.
