Disgusting
« on: July 12, 2021, 02:53:44 PM »
The racist abuse suffered by the three lads who missed the penalties, is totally out of order. It's a game of bloody football. People abusing these on social media should have the full weight of the law brought upon them. Social media is a great thing when used right, but it's another platform for racists and bigots to spout their poison  >:(

All the worst parts of English football were on full display yesterday. Vandalism, hooliganism, anti-social behaviour and racism. Have seen some of the videos of the fighting and issues caused by the ticketless fans which forced their way into the stadium, looked like more police were at a League 2 match.

Sounds like a horrible atmosphere in and around Wembley, must have been awful for families or fans who had drunk yobs in their seats and were unable to do anything about it.

A friend of mine posted this..


"Who, in their infinite wisdom of English football fans decided to kick off the match at 8pm, with all the bars open at 11am??!!

Anyone with half a brain cell could have predicted the utter farce of the drunken fans at Wembley last night.

When Mark and our three boys headed off yesterday, I knew they would witness some bad behaviour, but not be actually scared for their lives!!

Talking to the boys this morning they said it was like being caught up in a apocalyptic zombie movie. Red flares made the whole sky red and smokey. It was terrifying. Bottles being thrown, a carpet of glass, riot police, a man with broken leg screaming and being carried. Blood everywhere... Fighting... idiots trying to knock over the portaloos.... utter morons 🙄

The riot police were struggling! The whole thing was a fiasco!

Mark managed to find a route out in the end, they put their hoods up in vague protection from flying glass and debris, and formed a four man caterpillar with Mark at the front and Jamie at the back holding on to each others shoulders so they didn't get split up

There were terrified small children there. Their memories will all be for the wrong reasons... 😪😔

I've never been to an England game and must confess to not having much sense of identity with the England team - and much of this is an unwillingness to be associated with these idiots. Roll on the start of the National League North season....

Thank goodness I support non league football, I also support my Rugby League team Featherstone Rovers and can tell you now that next Saturday I will be at Wembley and there will be fans from St Helens Castleford York and Featherstone all having a jar together and enjoying supporting our teams. No racism, plenty of banter and anyone spoiling that will be dealt with quietly but firmly by the fans.

Appalling behaviour and an insult to those who have made sacrifices and suffered loses during the last 16 months of the pandemic. Glad I too support non-league football in relative safety compared to those who attended Wembley on Sunday.
