    Euro 2016: Russian hooligan fans praised by MP after clashes with England supporters

    A senior Russian football official and politician has praised his country's football hooligans, claiming they were defending the nation's honour and that it was "normal" for fans to fight at matches.

    "I don't see anything wrong with the fans fighting," Igor Lebedev, a member of both the Russian Football Union's executive committee and the lower house of Russia's federal assembly.

    "Quite the opposite, well done lads, keep it up!"

    Mr Lebedev blamed the French authorities for the trouble that marred the Euro 2016 game between England and Russia, and criticised other team officials for speaking out against their fans.

    "In nine out of 10 cases, football fans go to games to fight, and that's normal," he said.

    "The lads defended the honour of their country and did not let English fans desecrate our Motherland.

    "We should forgive and understand our fans."

    French authorities said about 150 hard-core Russian fans took part in the violence in Marseille.

    UEFA yesterday said Russia and England could be thrown out of the European Championship finals if their fans are involved in more violence.

    The UEFA executive committee made a public "warning" in a statement which expressed "disgust for the violent clashes which occurred in the city of Marseille" this weekend .


    On top of any punishment ordered by an investigation committee, the executive committee said "it will not hesitate to impose additional sanctions on the Football Association (FA) and the Russian Football Union (RFU), including the potential disqualification of their respective teams from the tournament, should such violence occur again."

    UEFA earlier charged Russia with misconduct over the role of its fans in the unrest.

    Known for racism and violence, there are fears some Russian fans will cast a stain over the 2018 World Cup.

    Russia was charged with crowd disturbances, racist behaviour and letting off fireworks.

    The result of the inquiry and sanctions are to be announced on Tuesday.

    Russia's next game is in Lille, northern France, on Wednesday against Slovakia. England's next Group B game against Wales in nearby Lens on Thursday has been classed as a high-risk game by the French authorities.

    A ban on alcohol consumption has already been ordered.

    What is a suspended disqualification? Is that like a suspended sentence?

    I remember seeing pictures of English soccer hooligans in the newspapers when I was growing up. Someone was always getting killed by being squashed against a fence or trampled. Must have been this story among others: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hillsborough_disaster Then a few years back I heard the Germans hurled bananas at the black soccer players.

    High stakes and bad rivalry matches are always a wild scene, that's for sure. :jj:

    Games get stopped sometimes because the crowd makes jungle monkey noises when black players get the ball.

    Or when they're singing songs about gassing Jews during Ajax matches (Amsterdam has a lot of Jews, which is why they're called "The Jews" as a derogatory nickname).

    The bananas are frequent fliers at Russian Premier League games. Champions and Europa League games are often played in closed stadiums due to friendliness of the Russian fans. I'm astonished that any black soccer player would ever want to play for a Russian club but I guess it's all about the money.

    It's not like it's news that Russians have a rep as being brutish.

    Hillsborough was a false narrative about English "hooliganism". They did a 30 for 30 about it 2 years ago. It turns out that the stadium was poorly designed and ill equipped to handle the amount of spectators that were being let in, all at once.

    These "fans" are actually what people call Ultras. They're essentially street gangs who's gimmick is soccer. They are just there to fight and cause chaos, the bastards even cover their faces so they can't be identified by security cameras.

    That sounds vaguely like the subject of this one documentary I watched about anarchists who descended like vampires on New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Apparently they also go to events like campaign rallies for the specific purpose of causing chaos.

    The English have their entire starting line up (hooligan wise) on no fly lists. Back in the day they'd book entire jets. Now they're stuck pounding pints at the local and watching the action on the telly. Meanwhile a known rus hooligan who's also the leader of a far right party, fond of seig heils and calling is for "only Slavic faces in the Russian national team” by 2018 is in Putin's entourage. A truly sad time for loutish English tourists everywhere.
