American gangs, on the other hand, have been creating an influence among the youths forcing them to join the gangs. It is because of this that a strong negotiation has been brought to the table. The negotiations are focused to identify congruence amongst the peer groups where they belong and contribute when there is the need to. One similarity between football hooliganism and American gang is that they both have related identities in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status.
American gangs are operated under a specific framework where operational, knowledge-related, and social identities are distinguished. This has happened recently when social aspects have appeared be closely related to identity congruence. However, there have been various consequences of incongruence especially where congruence is assumed and taken as not being fundamental. The following consequences have widely affected the gender and maturity of these group members of hooliganism and gangs. This study will outline, discuss, and compare these consequences relating to American gangs and football hooliganism. The study paper will not only compare and contrast these two groups, but it will also widely explain their similarity and society congruency (Howell August 2006). The study will also try to formulate possible remedies towards principles and techniques that can stabilize the society. Just to name some of the techniques that are said to control and even solve the issue of hooliganism is by forming collaborative learning conferences that change the reasoning of these groups’ members. This means that, it is easier to change the bad reputation of gangs and football hooliganism when the groups’ identities come together unlike with an individual.
In the early 20th century, youths in the community formed groups, which comprised of their fellow own-age cohorts
