APOLOGIES; I've now seen the Argie Bargie thread.

Surprised no thread about this as it was on the TV news last night. Fans of River Plate attacked the team bus of Boca Juniors, smashing windows and injuring players.

Reports said Boca's Pablo Perez and Gonzalo Lamardo had been taken by ambulance to hospital, the former with slivers of broken glass in his eyes and the latter a cut on his head.

The bus driver revealed he fainted and the bus would have crashed had a Boca vice-president, Horacio Paolini, not grabbed the wheel. Trouble continued with thousands of River fans breaking through security, so many without tickets were able to force their way into the stadium.

In 1972 or 73, Cardiff fans attacked the City team bus. Afterwards, Keith Fear said he had never been so scared as he did that day. Luckily, City's fans were walking up the road, saw what was happening and charged to the rescue, driving off the Cardiff fans. Anyone on here present that day?

Fans of assorted clubs later said it was understandable to attack rival fans, but you just do not attack players.

Unreal what goes on at South American games especially in Argentina and Brazil, yet you’ll hear F All from FIFA over this, if situations like this happened in England they’d have a field day punishing the clubs involved and the FA.

Never said it was :facepalm:  FIFA are well known to punish anything English, from chanting to punch ups they are all over it. The scenes over in South America when it kicks off is absolute meyhem to what happens here.
