Never expected to see 'Pies' on fark. Sort of a british Deadspin. Good stuff if you like soccer mockery.

So why were they getting death threats from their own fans?

The trainer forgot to pack the magic spray?

I read the article and still don't understand what happened.

MFAWG: So why were they getting death threats from their own fans?


The fans weren't allowed to attend the match, so they basically told the players "don't play or we'll kill you".

The reason the fans weren't allowed to attend in the first place has to do with the racist, neo-fascist "Ultra" movement in Italian soccer.

Gonz: neo-fascist


I was stationed in Italy in the early 80's. Nothing 'Neo' about their fascism. It's old school all the way.

Things are so quaint in Old Europe.

Livorno ultras are as far from racist and fascist as it is possible to be.

Actually, they are Communists or at least left-wingers, which makes Lazio-Livorno games so much fun to watch!

So this is like democrats threatening Andy Dalton's life because Mike Brown is a republican? That's weapons grade stupid right there.

Truth. There are plenty of legitimate reasons for threatening Andy Dalton's life.  Three interceptions a week for the last 2 weeks and taking a sack in the end zone in OT for instance.

He's a ginger. No other reason needed.

Italy is the one country I would love to see kicked out of the EU and let their economy tank. Farking racist country. So I guess the worst sports fans list is something like this:

1) Italian soccer fans
2) Boston Red Sox fans

Even the most racist dirt-farming dumb motherfarker in the US, in the 1960s, wouldn't threaten to kill the players for his own team.

When the KKK looks at you and says "Whoa, Guido, settle down there", you've got a problem.

I wish Koman Coulibaly had been in charge. No telling how many PKs would have been awarded.

I think that is a pretty broad statement and not wholly accurate. I travel to Italy every year and I just don't see the racism you talk about. In Riace, Calabria, immigrants are encouraged to settle in this town by the local mayor. And there are lots of immigrant populations in cities up and down the peninsula which live undisturbed and without threat of being whacked on the street for the colour of their skin.
But, yes, Italy should be kicked out of the EU because of their political instability and inability to not squander tax revenues.

Kind of, but in the US the most strident tea-partier is no where near as far to the right as the far right in Europe and the most strident US hippy is no where near as far to the left as the far left in Europe.
