Newspapers in Split today suggesting the Everton fans were 'wildlings' and were intimidating the Hajduk fans.
When we started throwing missiles at them they had enough and started to fight back.

Hopefully, if there is any UEFA action, thi sis seen through as a face-saving exercise.

We've been punished for the actions of others before today though...

Intimidating away fans is part of the game, its banter, happens at every game at every ground in world football.

Lets just switch this around for a second though, can you imagine the shit in the media if it was out fans acting like theirs, we would be hung drawn and quartered!

There were idiots in the park end throwing stuff, but in response to them throwing first, not condoning it like. They went nuts though didnt they, it was only a couple of fans at first then the rest kicked off, saw bottles, seats and coins getting lashed. When it finally calmed down for a bit they started on eachother

I was laughing my head off at a few lids near me, acting all hard and giving the Split fans the finger and that, they absolutely shit themselves when it kicked off, proper terrified, then after it calmed down they carried on acting hard and saying stuff like, good job theres stewards there or else I wouldve been straight over knocking fuck out of them

Standard lad behaviour.

You find that in times of, if not adversity, but when there's tension.

There is no finer sound in football than hearing young kids shouting "and we'll fuck you up were ever you may be cos we are the famous EFC"

Wonder if any of our fans with tickets for the away leg are having second thoughts about going, there will be murder over there, its impossible to prevent isn't it, they've already got a suspended ban from UEFA for crowd disturbances

Everyone's going to condemn this but having sat through the Ruzomberok and Stoke drab matches, I thought the whole thing was boss

Sorry.

So I was slap bang in the middle of this and this is how I saw it. Shortly after our goal and amidst all the usual taunting and faux aggression a big gap and a couple of lines of bizzies allow, a lady a little down the front row starts shouting at stewards about her son, I thought he was just scared of the intimidating atmosphere, but in hindsight I think he was struck by a coin or something. As they are being taken out for treatment more stuff starts raining down on us bottles, coins, seats,  lighters etc it was then that stuff started getting slung back. Some fingers were pointed aggressively, lots of fuck of type shouts a couple of lads half heartedly trying to get closer. Then the split fans tried getting on the pitch the police went in and pushed them back. Realistically it wasnt much more handbags. If it was Stoke or Newcastle they would have been laughed at. It because they were load bouncy, intimidating ultras it feels a lot worse.  The police then turned there cameras on us so I did a little fat man dance for him.
Credit to the police and stewards who contained it well without resorting to the armoured robocop style tactics you see on the continent.
I'm fat, but it's not my fault I have a genetic condition resulting in me retaining burgers.

After the game I had the usual pint to allow the traffic to die down, then taxi into town.  We bumped right into the escort.  There was a fair few of them that must of ducked the escort somewhere - all walking around with hoods up and short shorts on.

Then I went into town and it was full of kids celebrating their a levels. Made me feel old.

it's noticeable that before they kicked off they had three cheerleaders facing their own fans and leading the singing, then after the police had pulled a few of their fans out (and ours in the park end) there were only two.

They were boss, they paid no attention to the game whatsoever
