    These pathetic people need ridiculing...as do the Italian cops who apparently held back on sorting it out and then beat British fans instead!

    I can't believe how little coverage this has had and wonder if there will be any repercussions from FIFA with regard to Italian "fans"? I guess these "children" masquerade as fans?

    GRRRR!!! :mad:

    Its Uefa's problem . Nothing will happen , although I think Inter Milan had to play their home CL matches behind closed doors . So I might be wrong

    I dont think so, Fifa/Uefa will not doubt come out suggesting it is an English problem ike Diving and Racism.

    Where are the threats to Italy aboout being kicked out of the World Cup. Was it Euro 04 qualifying when England and turkey fans had a small scuff (Still Idiots who should be booted out of football) with no Injuries and Uefa made a threat to us about our positon in the tournament :thumbsdow

    Italian cops stood there smoking & watching as a friend of mine had his face smashed to pieces outside the Juventus stadium a few years ago..

    I won't go to watch football abroad again..

    The Italian police are absolutely useless at crowd control and have been for years. They charged into England fans a few years ago in Rome rather than the Italian fans who were the ones throwing missiles. They also charged into Welsh supporters who were getting angry in Milan because they were being urinated on constantly from the Italians above. Anything for an easy life should be the motto of the Italian police.

    That refers to FIFA's new rules on racism not hooliganism. It has also already been criticised for being too vague. Who is to say that opposing fans won't get involved to stir up chants in order to get teams banned? It would take undercover operations at every game to spot this, and so far FIFA has shown no sign whatsoever of being that forward thinking.

    Would these italians be so quick to cause bother if a contingent of British hooligans were allowed to travel and meet up in a field somewhere and let them get on with it ? It would seem to me that because we have been so effective with the withdrawing of passports of our own elements, our own 'nice' fans go and end up getting a kicking.Does anybody know if any italians were hurt in Middlesboro in the 1st leg ? The police always have a go at the British abroad it's a complex from the previous years of bother.

    There wasn't one arrest mate. They were in our boozers drinking with us.
    They were made to feel at home and very at ease.

    Again Johnny, the decent fans from Italy would have come over not the cowards who attack decent people, and reitterating the point the hooligan problem would have made it worse for any visiting fan a few years ago to come to any club in England.But nowadays although it still is about it's not as bad as it used to be.
