RIVAL FANS' BEHAVIOUR IS PRAISED - 01/08/2007

Source : Derby Evening Telegraph

The Brian Clough Trophy match between Derby County and Nottingham Forest passed off peacefully last night.

Police escorted fans between Pride Park and Derby railway station and only two arrests were made inside the ground for minor public order offences.

Football intelligence officer PC Allen Guy said fans remained largely well-behaved.

He said: "There were no major problems. We kept the hooligans apart so they didn't cause any trouble.

"The only problem we had was with anti-social youths. About 60 youths aged 16 or more were hanging around Pride Park trying to cause trouble.

"We filmed their behaviour and will be speaking to their parents."

PC Guy said Derby County had more stewards working at the ground than usual to prevent the trouble seen on Monday night after Forest's clash with Notts County.

78-year-old woman faces stadium ban - 01/08/2007

Source : Expatica News

A grandmother aged 78 from Kapelle-op-den-Bos may be banned from entering a football stadium because she called a police officer she suspected of supporting KV Mechelen a "pompous bastard."

The woman, a fanatic supporter of arch-rival Racing Mechelen, was told at the police station that her file might be sent on "to Brussels," to the interior ministry's special unit on football hooligans.

The elderly woman is hoping for clemency after the questioning at the police station.

Dinamo Bucharest to play two matches behind closed doors - 02/08/2007

Source : Reuters

Romanian champions Dinamo Bucharest have been ordered to play their next two home league matches behind closed doors after spectators attacked riot police in the opening round at the weekend.

The violence erupted soon after Gloria Buzau opened the scoring in a match eventually won 2-1 by Dinamo.

A Romanian Professional League official said the punishment was necessary because Dinamo supporters were repeated offenders. Dinamo, who were also fined 50,000 lei ($21,550), will play without spectators against Vaslui and Dacia Mioveni.

Dinamo sport director Petre Buduru said the club would appeal against the decision.

Steaua Bucharest also played in front of empty stands in their 2-1 victory over Ceahlaul Piatra Neamt last season.

Hooligans spared jail but banned from football - 03/08/2007

Source : This Is Hertfordshire

Seven football hooligans have been spared prison sentences for a violent and unprovoked attack that left a man unconscious after a Barnet FC match.

On August 6, 2005, Bristol Rovers fan Steven Gait was walking from the Underhill ground, in Barnet Lane, after his team had drawn 1-1 with Barnet FC in the Coca Cola Cup.

He recalled being approached by a man who shouted: "Is that all you've got?" He was then hit several times in the face, the court heard.

The attack was so vicious that passers-by jumped over walls to run away. Mr Gait regained consciousness in hospital and was not seriously injured.

The sentencing was the culmination of a two-year operation by Barnet police to identify the defendants. Using footage from CCTV and helicopter cameras of themoments after the football match, they were able to compile an initial shortlist of 14 suspects.

Working as a police "spotter", PC Andy Wigley travelled as far as Birmingham and Manchester with Barnet FC fans, eventually closing the net on the seven men.

Last week Harrow Crown Court watched CCTV footage of six of the hooligans punching, kicking and throwing bottles at their victim, a rival supporter.

After seeing the footage, Judge Barrington Black issued the six with £500 fines and three year banning orders preventing them from attending football matches.

He said: "I think I remarked when you first appeared before me, you don't strike one as the kind of people who usually commit this kind of violence."

Dean Martin, 30, of Leeside, Barnet, Ronald Healy, 39, of Thirleby Road, Burnt Oak, Daniel Bunton, 30, of Northbrook Road, Barnet, Robert McKenzie, 24, of Hertford Road, Barnet, Dean Reddy, 25, of Victoria Close, Barnet, and John Hobley, 39, of Cannons Court, Puckeridge, had all pleaded guilty to causing affray at a previous hearing.

All except Martin - who was put on 12 months' probation - were ordered to undertake 180 hours of community service.

Matthew Alderman, 23, of Crescent Road, East Barnet, pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of causing harassment and was fined £500.

Speaking after the sentencing, PC Wigley said: "They won't be committing that kind of violence again, and I have to view that as a success."

A 50+ mob of Ghent hooligans travelled to Denmark. In Aalborg, efforts were made to find the home lot, but no confrontation occured. During the game, Ghent clashed with the security (no stewards, but "bouncers") in the stadium, after they punched a 15 year old scarfer for no reason. Two local security guards were seriously injured. There was 1 arrest but he was free to go as the Ghent lot refused to leave without him.

Fans to face trains booze ban - 03/08/2007

Source : Scotsman

FOOTBALL fans are facing alcohol bans on rail trips to away matches as police step up the fight against hooligans.

"Dry" trains are expected to be ordered for some matches involving Hearts and Hibs as police look to repeat a tactic used successfully for international matches.

The British Transport Police (BTP) will ask for the bans for matches where they believe there is a high-likelihood of trouble.

The move follows a series of incidents involving "casuals" associating themselves with both Capital clubs, with clashes reported at games in Motherwell, Falkirk and Inverness.

A total of ten Hearts fans were arrested by the BTP last year, which is understood to be more than for any other club outside the Old Firm. Three Hibs fans were also arrested on the railways last season.

The football season kicks off for most clubs tomorrow, with the Capital's curtain-raiser being a derby match at Tynecastle on Monday night. It is thought that both Edinburgh clubs' trips to Inverness and Aberdeen are the most likely to attract an alcohol ban.

Supporters groups today said any move to stop people drinking on the trains would penalise genuine fans.

But BTP's Scottish football intelligence officer Stephen Hughes said a variety of tactics were needed to clamp down on football violence.

"It is also imperative that the travelling public who use the rail network on a daily basis can travel without inconvenience," he said.

"The legislation now exists and BTP will not hesitate in applying for football banning orders for those who are convicted of a football related incident."

BTP's chief inspector for operations, Alex McGuire, added: "Requesting that our partners in the rail industry, such as ScotRail, stipulate trains used by football fans should not allow the carrying of alcohol is an effective tactic which has been used in the past."

Edinburgh has been hit by an upsurge in trouble involving football casuals over the last year.

Among the worst clashes in the Capital this year was when rival fans clashed in a 70-man brawl in Meadowbank and the Jock's Lodge area before a Hibs match.

Rival gangs of casuals also clashed after a match in October 2006 in Lothian Road.

A series of undercover operations have since been carried out by police, with around 50 alleged hooligans arrested.

Derek Watson, chairman of the Hearts Supporters' Trust, said: "I think for the longer journeys, the majority of fans travel by coach, but you will still have quite a few who prefer to go by train.

"I am not sure if this would have that big an effect on the people that want to cause trouble, they will find another way to travel and then get into fights."

Last season, over 70 football hooligans were reported to the procurator fiscal by the BTP and 44 were also subject of football banning order applications.

The orders came into force in Scotland in September last year and so far two Capital men have fallen foul of the laws.

One of them, Kevin Watt, 18, was handed a three-year ban from all football grounds across Europe on Tuesday after being convicted of shouting racist abuse during the Hibs CIS cup semi-final at Tynecastle in January.

A First ScotRail spokesman said: "We work closely with BTP and other industry partners to ensure our customers feel safe and secure at all times."

Beijing police out in force to limit Barcelona abuse - 04/08/2007

Source : Xinhua

"Those who initiate swearing or goad the crowd into mass cursing at the game will be ejected from the stadium or even face detention and a 12-month ban from attending football matches," LiuChunjiang, a spokesman with Beijing police's Fengtai District Branch told Xinhua on Friday.

Fengtai police, responsible for security at Sunday's game between Beijing Guo'an FC and Barcelona, will treat the international friendly expected to attract more than 30,000 fans as a "drill for next year's Olympics," Liu said.

"It is just way out of line to have 30,000 people shouting and swearing en masse," Liu said.

"There will be a police officer in each stand videoing the crowd during the match in order to collect evidence of fans' bad behavior, from cursing and fighting to throwing litter or running onto the field. We will keep records of all violations," he said.

"What we are trying to do is to give the right guidance in how to view a football match, not to impose anything on the spectator," Liu said.

Beijing Fengtai Stadium, where the game will be held, is the home stadium of Guo'an FC and a notorious cussing venue for Beijingers who enjoy letting fly with tirades of abuse.

A seasoned curser surnamed Hao was detained for seven days in July for "violating the order of a public event." The man set up a website in March called "Beijing Curse Union," aimed at promoting a "curse culture" and goading Beijing football fans before each match to swear at the visiting team. He was banned from the stadium for 12 months.

Another five members of the "Union" were fined or given warnings. Sunday's game will be the first match after the banning of the "Union", said Liu, who refused to say how many police officers will be present.

Platini vows racism crackdown - 05/08/2007

Source : Eurosport

UEFA President Michel Platini has vowed to crack down harder on racial abuse inside stadiums.

Racist chanting has become commonplace in some European nations with several clubs and national team federations fined for the actions of supporters.

But with many fans and media feeling that punishments are too lenient, Platini has urged his colleagues to deal with offenders more severely.

"We will be strong," the former France star told Sky Italia. "We will not say 'please don't do that'.

"We will not leave space for racism in football just like we will not tolerate fighting or violence. In the past clubs have been fined and we have appealed because we thought that the fines were not enough.

When asked if he thought punishments could be extended to banning clubs from tournaments he responded by saying "Why not?"

Football thugs get three-year ban - 08/08/2007

Source : News & Star

THREE Carlisle football hooligans have been banned from matches for three years after trouble broke out before and after Carlisle United’s friendly game with Newcastle last month.

A fourth man, from Newcastle, was also given a three-year ban for invading the Brunton Park pitch.

The Carlisle men were all involved in incidents along Botchergate and Court Square when police were trying to monitor and control rising tensions between groups of rival supporters.

Christopher Alan Holden, Stuart Andrew Graham and Nicholas James Allan – who told city magistrates he had never been to a football game in his life – have been banned from attending any matches and must surrender their passports for international games.

The three appeared separately in court but all pleaded guilty to using threatening, abusive or insulting words and behaviour.

The court heard that Graham, 19, of Cant Crescent, was arrested after ignoring police warnings to leave Court Square.

He was seen arguing and punching a man.

He said: “I’m ashamed of it and there was an immediate realisation that I’d done something wrong and I didn’t run away.”

He was given a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £43 costs.

Holden, 28, of Egerton Grove, was arrested before the game. He kicked a car being driven along Botchergate as he and his friends left Woodrow Wilson’s. Holden said: “We were heading away from Newcastle fans. We headed that way to get away from the trouble.

“But it does not excuse what I did because it was stupid. I know what I did was wrong and I’m sorry to the person in the car.”

Holden was fined £200, ordered to pay £43 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

Allan, 34, of Blackwell Road, was arrested near the Litten Tree on Botchergate later that night.

He had been verbally abusive and tried to intervene when another man was being arrested.

Allan had to be physically restrained and was arrested.

He said he reacted because he had seen his best friend kicked to the ground by Newcastle fans. He was fined £50 for the public order offence, £30 for failing to turn up to court on time, ordered to pay £43 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.

Newcastle fan Craig Smith was also given a three-year football banning order.

Sunderland-Tottenham: 51 yobs banned for Cats opener - 08/08/2007

Source : Sunderland Echo

Fifty-one known yobs will be banned from the Stadium of Light this Saturday as Sunderland kick off their Premiership season.
In the run-up to this weekend's match with Spurs, police have been working to get last-minute banning orders to make sure hooligans are kept out of the ground.

Just two weeks ago, officers from Northumbria Police's Football Intelligence Unit (FIU), managed to secure a ban against a city teenager getting his hands on a ticket.

The 19-year-old was slapped with the order after he was caught acting in a drunk and disorderly manner at the Stadium of Light during last season's clash with Norwich City on Saturday, December 2.

And police warned they will continue to keep troublemakers out of the ground during the coming year.

Those banned are not allowed to go anywhere near the stadium four hours before and after kick off. If they are caught in the no-go zone, they face penalties and even a prison sentence.

Sergeant Darren Sweeney, of the FIU, said: "The 51 orders currently in place all cover male Sunderland supporters.

"For the coming season, our tactics as far as policing the matches are concerned, will remain the same as they were in the Championship.

"For derby games, there will obviously see a greater volume in police. And, as far as the away fans go, we monitor how they get to and from the games."

Despite repeated warnings, some of those banned do ignore orders, with figures obtained by the Echo revealing 50 different breaches during the past three years.

Many of those breaches occurred last year so that so-called fans could watch England play during the World Cup tournament.

Clubs like Sunderland AFC and Newcastle United have managed to stamp out hooliganism in their stadiums during recent years, which means trouble is now caused elsewhere – usually in the city centre, at pubs and railway stations.

Last season, police arrested a number of travelling SAFC fans on trains and platforms after a spurge of trouble.

Supporter Michael Lock, of Rothbury Road Red House, was banned from attending any designated football match until March 20, 2013, following a fracas at Carlisle on Saturday, July 29, last year.

Magistrates heard yesterday how Lock had been caught on CCTV lashing out at fellow Sunderland fans in a busy shopping street as horrified families looked on.

The 39-year-old was one of the Black Cats' fans arrested after scenes of violence before the pre-season friendly against Carlisle.

Three hundred supporters were led back onto trains after what Cumbrian Police described as "significant disorder" both before and after the match.

There are an estimated 300 football banning orders in operation across the UK.

FK Zeta - Glasgow Rangers - 07/08/2007

Source : Reuters

Faced With Racist Abuse, Beasley Strikes Back

DeMarcus Beasley got a bit beat up during his Scottish Premier League debut last weekend for Rangers, his new club. But the muscling and hard tackles pale in comparison to the ugly abuse he and teammate Jean-Claude Darcheville reportedly suffered in Montenegro on Tuesday.
Beasley and his French teammate, who is also black, were the object of racist chants from fans FK Zeta supporters during a European Champions League qualifying match. The American attacker did the only thing he could to silence the racist fans: Beasley scored the game’s only goal, his first for Rangers. The Glasgow club won the game 1-0 and advanced 3-0 on aggregate.
FIFA, the world soccer governing body, and UEFA, Europe’s soccer authority, have said repeatedly that they aim to eliminate the scourge of racism from the game. UEFA will hold it’s eighth annual Football Against Racism in Europe Action Week in October. UEFA says it will investigate the events of the Rangers-Zeta match. But the UEFA Web site’s match report makes no mention of the abuse.
Beasley, who said he received similar abuse in Belgrade when he was playing the Champions League for PSV Eindhoven, told the Rangers Web site: “It sickens to hear these chants but when you are on the pitch you have to try to blank it out. It degrades the game for everyone.”

Partizan Belgrade Kicked Out Of UEFA Cup - 07/08/2007

Source : Goal.com

As expected, Partizan Belgrade have been expelled from Europe's secondary competition after rioting marred their clash with NK Zrinjski of Bosnia-Herzegovina...

Following rioting in Mostar during their clash with Zrinjski that left 36 injured, Partizan Belgrade have been formally expelled from the UEFA Cup.

Despite the crowd trouble, Partizan won their first leg tie convincingly and were able to launch an appeal that allowed them to complete their second leg clash.

But the 11-1 victory has been effectively rendered void as Partizan are removed from the competition.

Zrinjski, then, will be allowed to take the Belgrade side's place in the Second Qualifying Round, where they will face FK Rabotnicki of FYR Macedonia.

Partizan also sustained a 30,000 euro fine.

This is the second major European incident so far this year, following Legia Warsaw's expulsion from the Intertoto Cup after major crowd disruption saw the Polish club's match against Vetra in Lithuania abandoned at half time.

Argentine hooligan's life in danger after internal dispute: reports - 08/08/2007

Source : Earthtimes

A man linked to Argentine football giant River Plate is reportedly in a "state of irreversible coma" after being shot in the head in what police say is a vendetta between two rival groups of club hooligans fighting for control. According to Argentine media reports on Wednesday, the incident took place late Tuesday, as the man Gonzalo Acro - 29 years of age and a former employee of River Plate - left a gym.

Acro was shot several times from two cars, and the unidentified attackers got away, reports said.

In February the same man was involved in a shootout between rival groups on club premises. The two groups within the larger hooligan organization identified with River Plate, known as Los Borrachos del Tablon, again clashed in May near the club stadium.

Acro is being treated in a Buenos Aires hospital, but doctors were quoted as saying that he is in a "state of irreversible coma," after losing encephalic mass from two shots to the skull.

Another hooligan, 28, was shot in the back in the same incident, although his condition was reportedly not serious and he was released from hospital within a few hours.

After fan death, River Plate gets late debut in Argentine championship - 15/08/2007

Source : The Associated Press

Three weeks after everybody else, River Plate finally will begin its season Sunday in the Argentina Apertura championship despite lingering concerns of violence from a struggle within its barrabrava fan groups that already has killed one man.

Argentina's Interior Ministry, responsible for overall stadium security, announced about 850 police will patrol in and around San Lorenzo's stadium for River's away match in the third round of the first-division league season.

Authorities said reinforced security is meant to discourage rival factions within River's feuding hooligan fan following from battling each other. Last week's shooting death of Gonzalo Acro exposed bitter rivalries within groups vying for supremacy.

Shaken by the fan death, River president Jose Maria Aguilar said he would not heed calls by critics to resign.

Opponents even inside the popular Buenos Aires club have accused Aguilar of failing to do enough to control the "barrabravas" — the Spanish word for organized soccer hooligans common to most first-division clubs.

"I have not given any thought to resigning," Aguilar said at a news conference.

He told reporters that while Acro was a five-year employee of the club, he "didn't know him" personally and was trying to investigate the events that led to Acro's death.

River, coming off an exhibition tour of South Korea, skipped its scheduled opener against Gimnasia de Jujuy to rest when the season began two weeks ago. Then the government suspended River's second-round match Aug. 12 against Newell's Old Boys, citing a "lack of guarantees" for fan safety at River's Monumental stadium in the wake of the shooting.

As part of moves to guarantee public safety on Sunday, authorities said they scheduled the River-San Lorenzo matchup to be held in daylight hours — avoiding any nighttime finish when any incidents would be harder to contain.

Red Star deny claims of racism ahead of Gers tie - 14/08/2007

Source : ESPN

Red Star Belgrade have hit out at suggestions their fans are racist thugs ahead of their Champions League qualifier against Rangers tonight.

The Serbian champions arrived in Glasgow in defiant mood ahead of the first leg at Ibrox following reports of a hooligan element within their support.

Club bosses are also unhappy at comments made by Rangers' American winger DaMarcus Beasley, who claimed recently that he was subjected to racial abuse during a previous visit to Belgrade with PSV Eindhoven.

Rangers have expressed concerns over the safety of their fans for the return leg in Serbia in a fortnight's time, opting to take just 1,000 tickets for the clash at the vast Marakana stadium.

But Red Star board member - and Serbian Football Association official - Dobrivoje Tanasijevic insisted: 'We are sports participants, we are not sports hooligans.

'We have not created hooliganism - it was created in other countries and brought to us.

'However, we have never had a hooligan problem at home in our international matches or our domestic matches.

'There are individuals but we do not have groups of thousands of people travelling and beating people up.'

Beasley and Ibrox team-mate Jean-Claude Darcheville were subjected to monkey chants in the last round against FK Zeta in neighbouring Montenegro.

And the United States international spoke of his fears of a repeat in Belgrade having been the target of racial abuse there during his last visit to the city three years ago.

Tanasijevic added: 'We are hurt, after reading in the press, reports from one of your players, who is an American, about our supporters' behaviour when he was playing for another club.

'I just want you to know that no-one from Scotland, or any other country, will have any problems in Serbia.

'We are not aggressors even though, in some political circles, we are called aggressors.

'We love sports and we love people. We also like to win so be careful!'

A spokesman for Red Star Belgrade added: 'I would like to express our wishes that both games, here in Glasgow and in Belgrade, will be remembered for good football, excellent atmosphere and fair play and sportsmanship both on the pitch and off the pitch.

'Bearing in mind recent reports in the British press and comments of certain individuals alluding to the possibility of racial remarks and unsportsmanlike behaviour in the stands of our stadium, we would like to state that our club absolutely supports UEFA's United Against Racism campaign and deeply condemns intolerance of any kind.'
