Abstract
This paper describes a research on football hooligans' attitudes towards the representatives of various youth subcultures. Basically, the attitude is constructed around the following modalities: 'friend-stranger', 'safe-dangerous'. Also, there are three characteristics that are typical of football hooligans' attitude towards the representatives of other informal groups: first, the ones whom they identify as 'friends' are those whose activities or ways of living are obviously related to risk; second, social values are of no significance in the description of their own subculture; third, their attitude towards football fans of other football clubs is ambiguous. As it was revealed through a comparative analysis of the attitudes, there is a certain distinction between the 'inside point of view' and the 'outside point of view': when evaluating from the inside, football hooligans refer to their group mates as 'safe', whereas from the outside, hooli¬gans of other football clubs are clearly perceived as 'dangerous'.

Keywords: youth subcultures, 'football hooligans', 'tolkienists', 'punks', 'extreme sports lovers', 'skinheads', 'antifascists', 'acid lovers', 'bikers', 'bright young things', 'rednecks, 'friends-strangers', 'safe-dangerous'
