Presumably you also objected to the Cole Brothers' WHU love-in.
Alway have to play the smartarse don't you. The two Coles talked about Lyon, Seville and Frankfurt a fair bit. So no.

Frankly speaking, the security around the stadium and the police seem absolutely disastrous. Unfortunately, I'm not even surprised, it's been more than one decade now that they simply ban away fans in every big games. They just don't know how to deal with major events, it's awful.

Liverpool fans actually asking for other fans to open the gates so that they can rush into the stands with absolutely no sense of irony whatsoever.

f*** me I do so detest that club.

That stadium is a nightmare to get into at the best of times. The approach from the Metro to the North narrows dramatically and with extra security checks it will have been a crush as fans neared the gate. I have been there as recently as February and seen crushing to get past security and that was for a Six Nations game.

****ing disgusting from the BBC. They will not mention a bad word about the victims despite them knowing full well who is to blame for the delay.

I'm waiting for Rodrygo to get on because I do think he will cause mayhem in Liverpool's back line

All so true, unfortunately. It's a game in Parc des Princes that made decided to never ever go with the away fans in a stadium. They stopped 3000 of us for mor than 3 hours under a heavy sun, with no water, no nothing before leading us to a narrow path to a closed gate where we waited an extra hour. We got in 30 minutes after the game started. During the rest of the night, we were targeted with batteries, screws and bottles filled with urine before the police reacted... by charging us and pepper spraying us.

And the Stade de France is a nightmare to access.

Did the rugby fans rush the gates and fences ?

The real Madrid end has wide blue stairways.

Liverpool end no gaps.

Possible overcrowding

If I told you they did would that matter? Most people on this thread have made up their minds that all Liverpool fans are scum and cause trouble. It's patently not true. They have trouble makers like most clubs do. I've met enough West Ham fans who are nasty bastards over the years to know that.
