    1. One Albanian player was booked. They played a pretty decent game. Had around 43% of possession, had 4 shots (2 of them on target, as opposed to Serbia's 0).

    2. The Serbian authorities showed that they cannot or do not want to organize a proper match against Albania.

    Ivan Bogdanov was present on the field tonight ffs! Not on the stands! On the * field! The same Bogdanov that caused riot in Italy a couple of years ago.

    The stewards were involved in the fight.

    Hooligans entered the pitch. The police (4,000 of them, mind you) did not take any measure to stop them.

    Hard object were thrown into the pitch throughout the match.

    3. Would you go out to play in a field where you've just been beaten by the stewards?

    i think albania didnt do very well put it that flag there...it wasn't just an albanian flag,it was the 'greater albanian' flag..which includes part of serbia,kosovo and north greece in red color like is all belong to albania...so of course serbians got angry...

    It's a non violent act are you * serious it could have caused a riot,I am honestly surprised that there wasn't a pitch invasion and that no Albanian players or staff were harmed,this was inciting a riot yet you have the cheek to go on about acting in a civilised manner :rolleyes:

    RigleyBhoy you have to admit mate if someone flew a tricolour over Ibrox or Windsor Park and they went nuts (which they would) it would be * hilarious, this is basically the same thing.

    Serbs need to learn to take a joke, such angry people over there :56:

    Indeed. They have a major problem with hooligan culture. They've had several major incidents (with their national team, not including club fixtures) only in the lat few years:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukKFx_Yo1j4"]Ivan Bogdanov Italy-Serbia 12.10.2010 - YouTube[/ame]

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kiwkGinrsqY"]Serbia U21 - England U21 0:1 - Goal and Fight HD - YouTube[/ame]

    I am not trying to blame anybody but we cannot paint both parties with the same brush. What I hope is for our Serbian neighbors to work on our their hooliganism problem and I want to see a Serbia-Albania game in the future played in a different atmosphere. I want these future games to have away support present. I want Albanians and Serbs to be able to go together to a pub to have a drink after a match regardless of the score. At the end of the day, sports is supposed to bring people and nations together and not create more divides.

    Stupid Stunt but Serbian fans were doing far worse from the start of the match, game should have been played outside of the Balkans, and who cares of the flag showed Kosovo, 9 of the Albanian players are from Kosovo and Serb fans have been taunting other nations over the Balkan wars for years, I guess they can't take it but they can dish it out.

    so ?

    If we were playing in Tirana the albanian fans would be singing the same thing.

    we don't need anyone telling us the 'difficulties' we have with our hooligan culture thanks.

    That's my whole point it's a stupid * stunt,why stir up more trouble in a heavily politicised game as it is,I have already agreed the Serbs need to sort * out with their hooligans and far right stuff,but this isn't the point here this drone could have got the Albanian team * killed IMO sheer lunacy

    Well my point is that a joke (regardless if you like/get it) should not get ppl killed period.
