There are bad losers and then there are bad 'tooled up' losers wearing masks intent on inflicting fear and mayhem on women and children! UEFA SHOULD hold AZ to task for not controlling their 'Ultra's', instead they will most likely receive a financial slap on the wrists with no further action being taken.
Firstly, if the same situation had occurred in England instead of Holland the entire media would have got involved, questions would be asked in the house and the perpetrators would have been roundly exposed in a blaze of negative publicity with 70's hooligan imagery photoshopped onto the front pages of the tabloids.
Players and staff were confronted with unimaginable scenes of stress as they saw their families and friends subjected to a torrent of physical and verbal abuse, the stewards who were doing bugger all to contain the Ultra's who they clearly feared, actually tried to stop the Irons players and staff trying to get to their loved ones to defend them!
Order at the end of the game was finally restored courtesy of 'proper' Police baton charge which left a few battered home supporters nursing head injuries. Football may have moved away from hooliganism, but hooliganism hasn't gone away from football, especially NOT in Northern Europe and particularly NOT in Holland where regular hooliganistic activities are organised between club's Ultra fans, a bit like the old ICF and other 'firms' of the seventies organizing 'rucks'.
The scenes at the end of what was a historic victory over two legs to reach the much maligned Con Cup were disgraceful and detracted from what was a great achievement. Before besmirching the Con Cup, ask Jose Mourinho what he thinks about it? His side Roma needed to win the Con Cup in order to be in the Europa League this year!
A Cup is a Cup is a Cup, irrespective of how Micky Mouse it is and it has been a dreadfully long time since Hammers won ANYTHING AT ALL! - Ed
