Intertoto News: Vetra v Legia abandoned - Crowd Trouble

Post by Rover the Moon » Sun Jul 08, 2007 7:36 pm

Apparently Vetra were leading 2-0 when the game was abandoned due to crowd trouble :td:

EDIT: Quote from Vetra fan on official board

I like how the police don't seem to give a shit:

uefa's website says this about the game:

\"FK Vëtra a-a Legia Warszawa (match abandoned at 2-0)
Match official Mario Vlk was left with no option other than to abandon this match at half-time with the home side leading 2-0 following crowd trouble and a pitch invasion in Vilnius. The Lithuanian side had made a superb start to the match with Brazilian striker Lima Severino heading his side in front after eight minutes. The hosts, who knocked out Llanelli AFC in the previous round, must have been harbouring thoughts of a return to Great Britain for a third round tie against Blackburn Rovers FC when Macedonian midfielder Dejan Miloðevski doubled their advantage from ten metres just before the interval. Unfortunately, though, the subsequent disturbance brought the match to a premature end.\"

Nice bunch of chaps. Not sure what they thought they were going to do with the advertising hoardings though - hardly a projectile weapon.

The Legia fans took down all the advertising hoardings and threw them on the pitch, one or two chucked rocks and flares towards the police, but mainly they just wandered around the pitch for 10 minutes until the game was abandoned. And the police just watched them for most of it, even when there was a bit of fighting. Possibly the most placid riot I've seen... :scratch:

9 minutes of footage without any rubber bullets or tear gas and only one quick bit of baton action. You just don't get the quality of policing anymore.

Any bets on how many weeks it will take UEFA to sort this out? :scratch:

I'll go for three weeks before the start of the 2010/11 season... by which time they'll have forgotten that anything happened and ban all English clubs from European competition for 10 years, by which they'll really mean 25 years.

Presumably they will award the standard punishment - the match will be deemed to be a 3-0 win for the home side. There isn't time to replay the match and they can't delay Rovers' scheduled fixtures, so they will have to award a scoreline.
