Grasshoppers: Fall of a Swiss Giant

Recommended Posts

Yeah it was mad; the ultras threatened to storm the pitch if the players didn't hand their jerseys and the game had to be abandoned. Second time in two months too that a Grasshoppers match had to be called off. Not sure why they didn't have enough police and security in the stadium yesterday given the possibility of relegation and the number of pissed off fans...

Policing and stewarding is poorly organised in countries like Switzerland they are denial of things like this ever happening.

Which is even weirder considering that they have had quite a bit of football violence in recent years; especially in Zürich. 

Yesterday scenes were very weird; there were only some 30-40 hooligans/ultras threatening the club representatives and the players on the sidelines. Maybe around 100 in total including those in the stands. Surely they should have been taken care of by the police and security forces before it escalated? The club's president and the players agreed to hand over their shirts to deescalate situation and not put other fans/stewards/players in danger but in fact it shouldn't even have come to that.

They actually demanded the shorts and socks as well and wanted the players to walk to the dressing room just in their underwear.

Weirdos.

How does someone orchestrate such an announcement to eleven blokes in a crowd of thousands while the game is ongoing?

Not just that, some news outlets are reporting that the fans demanded the players crawl back to the dressing room "like dogs". 

With Switzerland being the way it is, I'm really surprised it has so much football hooliganism.

Just shows that there's always plenty of idiots everywhere. 

There are a few videos here; just look at that pack of asocials...

A group of ultras went through the barriers to the sidelines and threatened to storm the pitch; Grasshoppers' keeper and club president went to talk to them to deescalate the situation and that's when the demands were made.

From that video there do you reckon players went back in to the tunnel and just got some replicas that the kit man might have had xD?

There's one guy I would not fuck with and that's the bald guy with tattoos all over his head wearing sunglasses...
