What an embarrassing bunch of old men we have “following” the Albion.
You should have seen the utter bellends that were in the upper tier to the right at the front. Spent the entire game trying to antagonise the AEK fans, hammering on the Perspex, gesticulating, most of the AEK fans just looked back through the Perspex as if to WTF?

Eventually a couple of AEK fans came down to the front and began responding, cue AEK fans and our idiots trying to reach around the Perspex barrier trying to throw punches, spitting, throwing stuff, doubt they saw 5 minutes of the football, let alone remember the score.

Thing is, on that side, I doubt there were any ‘ultras’ in the block next to us, they were there to watch the game, it was the three or four individuals on our side who spent all their time trying to get a rise out of the AEK fans, and when I say ALL their time, I mean it, they paid no attention to the game or the build up whatsoever, just constant goading, hammering on the Perspex, and of course were then acting indignant when a handful of AEK fans responded in kind, in fact I think they probably shat themselves when a couple of AEK fans tried to get around the barrier at the front.

Others will see it differently, but in my view just standing his ground whilst being goaded by Greeks and with missiles coming down on Brighton fans. Unless any Greeks were arrested/banned seems like the judiciary were not exactly even handed.

From the sounds of it you were watching them not watching the game rather than watching the game yourself

Another football banning order from court you might be interested in - also caught on camera


Just a quick note to say that I saw there was a bit of confusion about which outlet I work for, so I've changed my very out of date bio. And any and all typos are mine - we're a shoestring operation, definitely can't afford proof-readers . . . If you find the odd mis-spelt word triggering, feel free not to click :)
Still no update on B&H News and Timmy breaking GDPR then ?

Does the video actually show what's reported in the article?? There doesn't seem to be anyone having a heart attack anywhere.

Aren't all fans banned from Greek stadiums currently?

I had one of them directly to my right for the first half an hour or so before he gallantly made his way towards the front. I was dangerously close to the plastic glasses of piss and spit being luzzed about, but I managed to stay clean, watch the game and not abuse the AEK fans.

It’s difficult not to observe such bellendary when it’s just a few feet away, thankfully I enjoyed the game and didn't let the coked up cretins spoil what was a fantastic trip.

Would have thought basic English and spelling would be part of a journalist’s job. ???

I was in the upper tier (practically central) and saw AEK fans trying to get at the Brighton fans, and our fans goading them.

As the chap literally in front of me got hit by a bottle full of water that was thrown, I feel some of what you’re describing doesn’t entirely correlate with what I saw…. I thought given the objects being thrown, from both sections of AEK our reaction was fairly mild…

Perhaps you just had a better view than me of the people at the front.

That kid at the end, what a twat. Should have lamped the greek after giving it, not suddenly ducking away. Don’t give it if you can’t take it.

As usual, OB filming out of desperation to get a ban on someone and they got one in what are totally over the top circumstances. No way does that warren 3 years. Completely OT. Hardly did much did he? Love how as usual the English get the punishment and the Greeks get off scot free.

From my view at the time, there had been a reaction from aek at the final whistle. It blew up after some goading from our fans. It calmed down a bit and then blew up again after some of our 'let me at em' fans had made their way across.

I too saw things thrown and indeed had bottles and cups landing on and around me hence why i took my family into the concourse where they got the worse of the gas. You arent wrong that it happened but it escalated on both sides and i think the situation would have been far less (if at all) without the reaction of some of our own.
