    • Uefa,

      'Utterly, Embarassing, Feckless, Autocracy'

      Lazio's, and Serbia's fans must be guilty of criminal offences? surely we have European laws which make this behavior Illegal?

      Inciting racial hatred?

      If UEFA aren't going to do anything of note surely our legal framework can bring these clubs/individuals to account?

      • In cases like this it would be good if the authorities published a summary report of how the decisions were reached; I've got the 60+ page report re JT but haven't yet bothered to read it.

        I'd like to think there must be some method to how these decisions are reached, but it doesn't appear consistent and as a result fans are infuriated and lose faith in governing bodies. If we knew why the fines for clubs & nations were so low compared to player fines we might be more forgiving, or countries FAs would have to bring their fines into line.

        Domestically, it looks like the Kick It Out campaign could be reaching crisis, I think I've seen 7 players names so far who've not worn the T-shirts today because they don't believe the campaign is working, and another 3 wore them but removed them as soon as the stadium announcers started talking about it. Something's got to change.
