Derek ‘Diablo’ Alvarez wants to transplant British hooligan football violence into America. After being enraptured by grainy 80s videos of football gangs beating the shit out of each other in pubs and movies like Green Street and The Football Factory, Diablo has launched his own squad “The Miami Casuals,” defending a soccer team, Inter Miami CF, that doesn’t exist yet.
