They've even had incidents like Figo having a pig's head thrown at him.

So Rayo Vallecano will be fined 18k euros and its stadium partially closed for 2 matches after the Rayo-Albacete incidents a few weeks ago, when the match have to be stopped due to chants from Rayo fans calling Albacete's player Roman Zozulia a nazi.

This was the first time a La Liga match is stopped due to something like this. So, homophobe or racist chants are ok, Griezmann die is ok, but calling someone a nazi is going too far.

Spoiler!
Not really surprising given that Javier Tebas, La Liga's president, belonged to a far right party in the past.

I don't know where they get the idea he's a nazi btw.

What are the pictures supposed to mean? I just see a guy with some random old guy on a scarf, a gun and basketball. None of that screams nazi to me...

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

The picture with him holding the gun is what got him in trouble due to the symbol on it and the wording, the symbol is the coat of arms for Ukraine and the writing is where the issue stems from as because he held the gun in a certain angle it cut off what was written on the shirt so the top word looks like the first part of the name for Right Sector a far right group in Ukraine whose full title when written features the symbol in the middle of the words. In truth the words were something else but this has become a go to thing for rival fans to attack him with.

14/88, the score he's pointing at in the right pic, is well known nazi symbology, and it never happens in a normal basketball match.

The middle pic is cut off, but Zozulia is an Azov Batallion supporter, known for its use of nazi symbology. In 2018 the US Congress banned any military support to them on the grounds of its white supremacist ideology.

The guy on the scarf is Stepan Bandera.



Wow, good shit Wolves.

Premier League looking done and dusted now.

That come back... That slip by Otamendi has shades of Gerrard's slip years back.

With the key difference being that Gerrard was Gerrard, and Otamendi is Otamendi.

I mean, no one would ever expect Otamendi to be a reliable player.

Edit: well, and I guess the other key difference being that Gerrard's slip took Liverpool level on points with City, not 14 points behind having played a game more.



...

So Arsenal just did it again... In the space of 5 minutes.



Hurts that loss, don't know why Arteta wanted to sit back with this team. They looked tired and it made everything even more difficult. Chelsea wasn't really building anything too threatening until Leno's mistake.

Brilliant 1st half and we looked organised most of the game. Half the squad weren't our first choice players. Still convinced Arteta will build something great.



55 points.

Not bad.
