If they wanted to be twats they could have got heavier handed with the tiny number of the Albion crowd intent on stirring things up by the plexiglass and netting.
I had a chat with the British police (who seemed lovely) as they were filming this on their little cameras. I imagine there may be consequences.

The Avenue then Maloncho
It’s ok to play the tear gassing down saying we weren’t the target, it drifted in from outside etc, me and my son briefly suffered discomfort and I was choking my guts up. As soon as it was over we laughed about it.

However, I saw a few of our older and, for want of a better phrase, overweight fans were seriously in a bad way which then has the potential to turn into something serious. Hopefully they are ok this morning.

Warren and Johnny in the Brexit queue near me to get their passport stamped. Dont look very happy. Warren effing and blinding 😆
Hopefully the time on the queue isn't as long as the one getting into Amsterdam last time out, as that was longer than the flight over.

The only rioting i was going to get involved in would have been me starting it if the lovely restaurant had run out of that exquisite saganaki fried cheese. Otherwise of course not.

It does sound like it was a lot worse in the lower tier than upper. Hopefully no lasting effects for anybody.

Not really playing it down here - as you say it was still pretty unpleasant and several people were quite visibly distressed/affected even in the upper tier.......feel for anyone with respiratory problems in particular as it would have been horrible - my throat was burning.

How many will Barber ban do we reckon.

I reckon 5 is the magic number. Though he does like to punish, so maybe double figures?

Waiting game I guess.

Watched the game on the TV last night on my own. I hate it, don't know why I feel more stressed watching us on the TV. So happy for the result and for the people who made the trip. Hope you all get back safe and had a great time. I now hope to have another trip to look forward to, as holiday work days renew for next year and a chance to build up funds again. Up the Albion.

I'm the same, can't watch us on TV without twitching like an adict.

Being there is so much better, regardless of location. This place though...

I will credit the Greek police with some intelligence (perhaps theyve used TG before too) that proximity wind etc it would end up in a confined space. Unacceptable and I hope the club put an official complaint into UEFA.

It wasn't so bad. Still day, it happens I guess. Can't comment whether it was an over reaction or not but we got away safely so thankful for that

None, or maybe one fella off to the right, who clearly got out of his bed on the wrong side, yesterday morning.

Barber-Out will point to the extreme provocation and the fact that 99.9% of us were model customers.
The .1% will be quietly forgotten about.
