We have always known how dangerous this tie could be, we could have organised a live screening at GP, should not have sold children tickets, organised a Thomas Cook charter flights to Split, bus to stadium with escort, bus back to airport after match with escort.                                         
I think they were hoping for a quiet night at Goodison, I'd told them it wasn't going to happen.
It's the roll I way

In circumstances like this the club should arrange local coaches to pick fans up from outside the ground and ferry them back into town. Or some arrangements to safeguard the safety of fans. I wouldn't like to walking round there at midnight with thousands of idiots baying for blood and the police probably turning a blind eye.

1200 fans are quite a few. Not the normal number by any means, but still a healthy number. Let's hope everyone has a good time and get back home safely. I think questions should be asked about the disproportion of safety guaranteed to our away support, as was offered and given to theirs though. Uefa needs to look at this before innocent opposing clubs are sanctioned for turning up to watch a football match.

As if UEFA actually give a fuck until someone... you get the picture shakeyheadman

IMO they absolutely have more power to stop this shite if they really wanted to, they didn't hesitate to blame England for football hooliganism back in the day yet now there is so much money involved it represents a huge conflict of interest, almost preventing them taking any action unless obviously unavoidable.

UEFA's main job is to generate money and lots of it. How they do it and good governance isn't something they're overly concerned about. They just employ lots of expensive PR companies to salt away the unsavoury aspects of football rather than deal with them.

It absolutely galls me that people having paid a hell of a lot of money to get there, flights were average £300 plus when I looked at it, plus hotel as you can't get back after the match, will be corralled into a pen where there is one bar, probably  selling at twice the normal price, who would know the difference, maybe no or limited food, 1,200 people all day and half the evening. When I got off the train at Lime street last week the entire steps in front were occupied by their fans, they made regular trips down to the Tesco Express to stock up on beer and were enjoying the experience. Many were wandering around the fan zone
in their shirts, later I was standing outside the Winslow with a pint, one of their fans asked me "is that alcohol free" I said no and then three of them went inside. I'm still baffled by the logistics ? Bus from airport to park, taken to stadium, held for an hour after match then make your own way to your hotel, when are they supposed to have checked in ? Most hotels will release your room if you haven't checked in
some hotels won't even have night staff and doors may be locked, crazy !

The Toffees play Hajduk Split tomorrow evening (August 24) in the second leg following a 2-0 victory at Goodison Park last week.

The game was overshadowed by disgraceful scenes of violence with chairs and bottles thrown at stewards by away fans.

And sick Split fans have now posted death threats to Everton fans headed to the Croatian city.

"So you English p****s think you are so strong ok we will see what happens in Split," wrote one ultra online.

Another added: "When you come to Split ... when you come ... you will not live out."

Everton is now warning fans not to wear club colours in Split ahead of the game – in fear they will be set upon by ultras wanting English blood.

Also a couple of English lads who are there on holiday were chased last night because the thugs thought that because they spoke English they must be Everton fans.

can they guarantee the safety of the squad we send there?
The only real things in this reality are how perspective is perceived and eventual death...

There is no good news out of this. The best news is for our fans to be safe and enjoy an Everton win. There will be minimal enjoyment outside of match time as I am sure people will be looking over their shoulders for most of the trip.

In my opinion, UEFA should demand that Split organise extra police and security to guarantee the safety of fans. They should also issue public warnings that if any violence happens before, during or after the match, there will be serious repercussions, which could lead to banning of them in European competition for several years.

Standard internet muppet behavior, hardly anything new.

Wonder if they know this mob?...

Everyone has had enough warning that something might happen if it does then the authorities involved should be held accountable. UEFA, Split, The Police. It is a disgrace over a match of kickball.

I still can't understand why you would go knowing what could happen even if it means losing all your money, just is not worth it.

It would be great to see the Split ultra's foaming at the mouth and not one blue there to intimidate,what would they do with themselves then?

If ever a game deserved to be played behind closed doors at a different venue, then it was this one. The evidence of trouble, hooliganism and serious injury is as plain as the nose on your face. The trouble these " fans " could cause was evident last week, imagine over 30,000 of them. UEFA already apparently have the club on a warning, so UEFA should take a lot of the responsibility if trouble / injuries happen. Anyone would think they are looking to give out bans or fines for the club's involved.

Hajduk fan passing by


How about this one, where you claimed our fans started with throwing stuff?

Neither of the posters you've quoted have said anything like "all your fans are shit", just "your fans" referring to the shitbag ones.


I've posted that after reading our own newspapers and posts from someof our fans, can't say what exactly happened as I wasn't there. And agree with your other part, yea those that caused problems are shitheads.
