Hajduk fan having a mare here. You cant defend them, awful fans.
Like a modern version of Custer''s last stand - no chance of winning but fighting (not literally this time) to the end.
Like others have said on here this was nothing compared to the 60''s, 70''s and 80''s and I've been within a few feet of Everton flares last season and seen agressive provocative behaviour. It's unrealistic to believe the risk of violence is ever far from the surface at any game. It's a passionate sport and passion can always spill over.
One thought about the current debate - I wonder if recent experiences of war in that part of the world mean this level of violence is trivialised by comparing to other events? Different culture, different values?
