The news that a Gooner was stabbed in Rome has killed off the enthusiasm of last nights victory for me.
You pay all that money to go and watch your team in Europe and you have to look over your shoulder in case some fucking lunatic has a pop at you. It's football not war for fuck's sake.
The worst thing is some sort of tragedy was expected. How bad is that?
Football is full of violence in Italy and not enough is done to stop it. How many times will this be allowed to happen in Italy without anything being done to stop it?
Could you imagine if this happened in England. I should imagine that every English club would be thrown out of European competition and banned for a long time.
How the final can be allowed to be staged in Rome stumps me. Yes the Olympic Stadium is lovely but that night will not go without incident outside it.
The Champions League final should be staged elsewhere to show these idiots that they will not win.
Somehow I think FIFA or UEFA haven't got the bollocks to do anything about it.
I hope the Gooner makes a recovery.
Keep it Goonerish.........
