Will UEFA threaten Croatia with a possible suspension?
Cacic lost 2 points.
Late subs, wrong subs. He was completely frozen by the touch line, watching them get ran over after Modric went out.
Planting stuff under the seats is how this is done in 99% of cases like this. You pay off someone, or a guy who's connected with Ultras works with a security company etc. Like I said before those guys are well connected.
There's a FB post saying the exact location of where the flares were hidden, with a plan of action. This post was published 3 hours before the game started.
Yea! Really like Lille more than I thought I was going to.
2 downsides, you guys smoke like chimneys out here, the fan zones are making my allergies go crazy. And as someone from California, this rain everyday stuff is kinda a bummer. More rain in a week than I've seen all year. Though leaving for Bourduex tomorrow and it looks to have great weather!
Yeah I told you Lille was nice. Lots of nice people there.
Smokes is definately a problem in public outdoor areas.
As for the weather, you're very unlucky. Last month has been desastrous for the most part. Even in the south.
Things should go more smoothly on that front next week I heard.
Have fun in Bordeaux ! Nice beautiful city, but less fun than Lille IMO. Brand new stadium.
Which game are you going to see?
Looks like the famous Czech luck isn't exclusive to hockey.
It's not a problem. There is likely more exhaust from cars. People don't mind that.
Yes I do mind. Like plenty of people.
PLeeease don't talk about Czech luck when the last and decisive group stage game is against Turkey.... 2008 feels like yesterday
As to the security matters, I think people are truly overestimating the extent to which these things are preventable through security measures given the connections between Ultras groups and stadium staff, team staff, security companies, etc. It's the same problem with why far-right groups are so rarely prosecuted by police - there is too much overlap. If tickets aren't being checked against IDs (which from what I've heard here is the case in some cases), I guess that's an area where things could be improved, but I also think they would still find other ways to get in - through various special/VIP tickets or through affiliated staff
No. Only a 100.000 euro fine.
It was pretty obvious they weren't going to kick out Croatia, UEFA really don't want to kick anybody out and even the main guy from FARE said it wasn't an option as well. However they are lucky they got off lightly, I was expecting more stadium bans
The ironic thing is I think they got more in trouble for ZDS than the flares
