Mike Riley called a halt to the game afte only 50 seconds - apparently tons of stuff was being hurled on the pitch, the Bosnian keeper was hit with something and then an advertising board was set alight.

Sounds like a great party icon_wink.gif

Honestly. It's really sad that these things happen. Why does some fans (if indeed you can call them that) have to ruin the game with stupid things like that?

Brazil played in Sweden against Chile today. Yesterday when the players where training alot of youngsters (think most were under 20) ran onto the pitch. Some (very few) ran up to players like Ronaldinho to shake his hand but most just ran out there to act cool. Today when the game was almost finished some ran onto the pitch yet again. The ref ended the game when it happened because there was just a minute or so left and Brasil were leading by 4-0.

Really annoying to see it happen.

This time it was just innocent idiots doing it but who knows what will happen the next time? Maybe some psycho with a knife decided to kill someone? It's not impossible. Chapman killed his idol Lennon so why can't a fan of Ronnie (there are a few) do it?

Someone needs to die before the security becomes better. icon_sad.gif

They're in fight with Bosnian Football Assosiation, that's why they're doing these things

they want first men in BFA off the chair, because of very, very bad leading the national team, (even if it's not the right way, probably, but that is the explanation why)

because of those on the top of the Bosnian Football Ass. some of the great players like Barbarez, Salihamidzic and other, are not playing for their country, and supporters are not good with that

but that's only one part of supporters called BH Fanatikos, they think they can (with doing mess like this) make them resign their positions, and let some better people do better work about national team.

A lot of people (supporters) doesn't support this way of dealing with those problems, but....

what to say...not a compliment, obviously, but they're not doing it because they think it's fun

Lamps explained the situation. We want the people from our FA out and it's been that way for the past few years and we cannot find any way to get them out. It is because of them that one Zlatan Ibrahimovic plays for Sweden instead of Bosnia. That is just one of the examples. Now it's come to this. Believe it or not, I am very proud that the fans did what they did , because it takes courage to do something like that, risking a lot, but all for the better of the country.

What rubbish. Am I not right in saying that the fans were throwing things onto the pitch and actually hit a player with something. You think that is for the better of the country? It is nothing more than idiocy. If fans want to protest at their FA then I know schoolchildren who could think of something smarter than that.

I watched the match and the player (goalkeeper) was not hit, and even if he was it wasn't meant to be. That was not the goal of the supporters. The point of the whole action was to get our FA to pay money to FIFA/UEFA instead of putting it in their own bank accounts. They charge players to play for our national team. That is why most of our players aren't playing for our country - they don't want to have to pay to mafia in order to represent their country. We had many protests... In front of their main building with thousands of supporters... We tried boycoting the matches... We tried having banners with messages for them to leave...

And still they stay. Believe it or not, when we played Greece not to long ago, the supporters sang "FA out!" and the main people in the FA ordered the police to get into the stands and punish the supporters which followed. It is very sad and unless you understand the situation you won't understand why these actions are being taken. When a man is left with no choice he will go very far.

acctually I do not agree with this way of dealing with situation. It goes only on bad reputation for bosnians,

even if BH Fanaticos is just one part of them, and what they are doing it's not supported by all bosnian fans.

So that's the reason why I accually replied on this topic, in between.

But, about the things that are going on in this situation, it is a lot more complicated, and I don't see a point of digging too deep in it on Chelsea supporters site. That has its place to be discussed about, and it's certanly somewhere else (Bosnia)

If fans want to protest at their FA then I know schoolchildren who could think of something smarter than that.

I have seen the footage now and you are right the keeper didn't appear to be hit (although only by good fortune as enough flares fell all around him)

However whether or not it was the goal of the supporters is not really the point is it - the bottom line is he, or another player (or even another fan in the crowd as some of the flares were thrown from quite far back) could easily have been hit and could have caused a fairly serious injury. Lack of intent is no excuse for stupidity. It didn't escape my notice that the flares started to be thrown at the first corner of the match, i.e. the time when the most players would be in the penalty box. If the protest was purely to make a political point then why choose the moment when there was greatest risk of injuring a player? Why not do it before the game even started to delay the kick off, or do it at half time?

Clearly I don't know, nor would pretend to knoe, anything like as much about what is going on as you do. From what I have read and heard I have a whole lot of sympathy for the Bosnian fans and many of the players and I can fully understand and sympathise with a desire to get rid of the current authorities and also taking action to try and get that message across.

However this for me is very far from the right way of going about it

Out of interest Bosnian and Lamps - is there any coverage in the Bosnian media regarding any action being taken against the Bosnian team for these scenes?

I have seen nothing about it here but then again it isn't massive news here.

I can't give you a good answer, cause I am out of the country for a while, and all my info is "second hand", or what I read here and there on the internet, I don't know everything about the story

How it looks to me, everybody's too suprised by result, everybody dropped that game, because of all these problems, and this team had only 4 trainings together, they barely know each others names, and that victory was a shock (positive shock icon_lol.gif ), so most of the news were based on result more than on the action taken from supporters against the team (except generally info about what's going on).

for general situation, I already posted, everybody's against the FA, but everybody's not for whar BHF are doing (this burning mess in Oslo was maybe the first serious mess they made, let's say, in the front of world's face), their protests are nothing new, and one thing is for sure, FA (and media, and every person in Bosnia that know what's going on with BiH national team) knew that BHF will make something messy in Oslo. And I think that BFA even sent a letter to norveigan FA with information that thay don't organize supporting and supporters that are coming to Oslo, so they (norveigans) announce the match as "high risked", so how they brought the fires in, I don't have a clue

what happened to BHF, 50 of them are arrested, most of them were out free soon, now maybe even all of them,

no report from norveigan police still came to Bosnian FA

there's still no news about how they're gonna be charged

I don't think there is, also I don't see anybody concern icon_lol.gif about that

as much as I know, in this case The Assosiation can be charged (and will be, for sure), but not over result and team

I read somewhere also that Norveigan FA may be charged too, for organization

but we'll see, still no news

Cheers lamps,

I was also wondering whether there is any concern amongst the Bosnian fans that the result may be scrapped and Norway awarded the result.

Even though I agree with every action taken against our FA (yes, I hate them that much) I will always be happy with our victories, but that isn't the case with the supporters who caused that incident in Norway. Believe it or not, right after setting that stadium on fire, those responsible walked out. They do not want to be part of our national team as long as those people in FA lead us. They want our natinal team to go down and to do bad so that those people will leave. And if Bosnia is winning those people will stay and nothing will be done. In other words - the Bosnian supporters (the BHF) want Bosnia to lose and would be happy if points were taken off. It might sound crazy, but yeah, that's how far it has come.
