« Kick Danny Rose out of football | Main | What a goldmine »


Just seen the video of the monkey chanting at the Serbia v England U21 game (Stadion Mladost) which saw Danny Rose sent off for kicking the ball into the crowd after the final whistle. This should be easy. Ban them from playing international football as punishment. Throw the book at them faster than they threw missiles and coins and seats. How else can you truly make an example out of these animals?

Oh no, wait, I've got a better idea. Fine them 10k instead, that should cover the 'fervent' support. Slapped wrist will do the trick.

Punches and head-butts from the Serbian players too. That'll bury the racism deep enough to be brushed aside. Again.

Platini's Europe.

Disgusting behaviour by the Serbian players and so called fans, apparently Savo Milosovic ( the ex Aston Villa player) made an apology to the England team. Save it mate, some of your citizens are full of shit. All eyes fixed on FIFA right now, the governing body has to act swiftly on this this one and punish the Serbian FA. The pictures were seen across the globe and did nothing to present the beautiful game in a positive light.......Fcuk the ignorant arseholes at the game last night!

Posted this on another forum but should have realised it would never get past moderators. Serbians were fucking animals, how messed up do you have to be to act like that over a bloody FOOTBALL MATCH. It's just a GAME for Christ sakes. Platini is a useless mug too. We'd better hope the Serbians broke some sponsorship agreement otherwise they'll only gt a ten quid fine

Typo- Pardon my error Spooky I meant to write the word 'this' and wrote it twice. I type much too fast for my own good at times especially when I'm angry!

Now imagine that was the English national team, we would have the rule book thrown at us, and any other book they could find, 5 year ban from international competitions or 5 year supporter ban should wake them up, they have been getting away with this behaviour for too many years,

Absolute disgrace. Where were the police to protect our boys from those racist (unt fans and players alike.
Platini ! the Sep Blatter arse li(king piece of shit, will let them off with a poultry fine as usual.
Can you imagine its your son playing out there with no protection from anyone and feeling helpless to protect them.. must be heart wrenching for them, like Danny Rose and young Ince dads were.
The international community as a whole need to put pressure on FIFA, or simply put ,this scurge in our game will not go away.

koko61 - the same place the MP were during the Lazio game- doing nothing.

Oct 17, 2012 at 6:10 PM | Unregistered CommenterDD

DD- There is no comparison. No fighting on the pitch, no missiles been thrown onto the pitch, no monkey chants and no fans attacking players. I was at that game, and to be fair I heard nothing that was alleged.

Oct 17, 2012 at 6:20 PM | Unregistered Commenterkoko61

Fair enough on all of it bar the monkey chants which were audible to anyone in the Park Lane. This was in full view of MP who were lined up against the hording. Agree it was a totally different scale.

Oct 17, 2012 at 6:27 PM | Unregistered CommenterDD persons. What a life, eh?

Racism is still rife all over Europe. The passions at a football game just tend to bring it out to the open. Most of those people probably feel a bit exposed and embarrassed after they sober up.

One thing I know, I'd rather spend a night in jail than visit Serbia, or Poland, or...any of those Eastern European hell holes. They really really hate ..... people.

I can't believe that the Serbian FA are actually denying it was racism and saying Danny Rose was out of order... Hang on a minute, what am saying!!!

I feel sorry for the few decent blokes on the Serbian squad or at the match. How do you cope with the humiliation and feeling of helplessness within your own country?

Living in the southern US I have to bite my tongue at times to avoid getting into racist brawls. What happened in Serbia is alive and well in the UK and the US. It's just hidden from sight. Get a few drinks into people and get 'em talking and the vitriol isn't far below the surface.

The bottom line is that we're all of us only a few generations from tribal, deeply xenophobic societies in evolutionary terms. That said, the behavior is not excusable given that we have brains and willpower. I just don't know how you reach people with such deeply-seated hate. Ban the fukcers all you want and nothing will change. Perhaps we should publish actual pictures of the thugs involved on line, much the way they do drunk-drivers in the US. A bright light always makes the bugs run into the shadows again...of course that's not a solution either.

I agree Cat7: racism is everywhere and how low must those Serb supporters felt who actually love the game and attended to watch two young football sides. : What should happen to those scumbag minority supporters is that they are given community service hours and forced to clean inside the gorilla enclosures at their local zoo every local match day.

Not professing to be a political expert, but it seems the Serbs have a huge chip on their shoulder having basically ruled the cess pit that was yugoslavia with soviet backing.
What`s left is a paranoid people who hate everyone, including each other; Red Star / Partisan anyone?
Their ignorance is astounding. The actions of those involved, whilst perporting to be sports fans, shows a total disrespect for every black superstar, too numerous to mention, including Pele the greatest footballer ever.
They have betrayed themselves not as scum, not as bigots, but as cnuts. Sometimes no other word quite hits the mark.
The most appropriate punishment? Right under our noses, my friends. Make them reside in Tottenham for a month, in a vibrant community that would quite readily kick the living shit out of them at the first sign of disrespect.

' will let them off with a poultry fine as usual.'.... nothing will change all the time they just have to hand over a few chickens and turkeys.....

Oct 18, 2012 at 8:45 PM | Unregistered CommenterCarlosKickball

On a different but equally sad note. Why is AVB so confused about this Brad Friedel vs Hugo Lloris nonsense. Its a clear 'black and white' issue. Friedel, like most grandfathers, is a nice guy. But he is ancient! He played with Pele for goodness sakes! Lloris is our present and future. We cannot afford to alienate him now. Someone please have a word with this youngster first team coach of ours before he messes up big time. He's getting everything else correct...but not this issue.

Oct 18, 2012 at 10:14 PM | Unregistered CommenterRonnie

Ronnie, at least wait until the whistle on Saturday first... Has he actually come out and said Lory will be on the bench? No. Press Mongering Twaddle...
