french security at euros soccer

June 17, 2016

just watched Czech republic v Croatia  second half saw three thunderflashes, or the modern day equivalent being thrown onto the pitch from the croation end. I am not really bothered whose end it was, BUT those could have been more powerful bombs/grenades  or what ever . Security searches would appear to be virtually non existant.  It is not that hard to search all fans on entrance to the stadia, more time consuming, and more costly, but at least nothing would get through, any one found to be trying to smuggle these into the ground should really be made an example of, and don't try to give any guff about human rights etc, etc, there is black + white and no grey in security, it is either right or wrong nothing in between.

Bob I've already made a comment on the security ( or lack of) I've been to an European championship and a World Cup security was excellent no crowd problems and defiantly no pyrotechnics ,and from the history of the last couple of months in Belgium and Paris they've got boots on the ground but fingers up their bum . You know yourself how fans are sorted before a Premiership games , the French seem to want sell the booze and use tear gas but if they stopped it at source ,no big crowds etc they might have kept order . As we know from past footy games if you don't  marshal the enclosures people do stupid things and with kids in amongst the fans things will go tits up quickly .

Here's the problem.......the Albanian fans are fighting the Polish fans........the Croation fans are fighting Slovakian fans ......the Portugeese fans are fighting the Czech fans .....and last but not least the Ukranian fans are fighting the Turkish fans ....the French police have stated that they'll arrest them all and send them back to the UK .....

Bob, Do not forget the English v the Russians..... they will feel aggrieved if they are not mentioned, and start fighting all and sundry without pause....  Tom
