I think 1-1 is good result for Roma, after Vermaelen red card..
Anyway , if this hasn't happened , they could win easily.

Re: UEFA Champions League 2016-17 feat. VARDY and HURRIKANE

Celtic been charged by UEFA again, this time for flying Palestinian flags at the home game.

Today Celtic fans/GB set up a go fund me page 'match the fine for Palestine' in hopes of raising £15k to send to a Palestinian community group in Aida refugee camp. It will also help Aida Celtic get off the ground. Raised £20k in around 12 hours. New target set at £30k, doubt it's long before that's met.

UEFA a bunch of crooked bastards.

Somewhere in the West Bank.....

Re: UEFA Champions League 2016-17 feat. VARDY and HURRIKANE

Schalke has run an interest-free "fan loan" and raised millions. Though it wasn't explicitly for transfers and I don't think they're trying to fanny it

Eta: further googling reveals that most teams have done this

Imagine if they did that and then Wenger came out and said there were no quality options available so instead they hired 500 cleaning ladies instead

I think that the flags was a massive dick move - if you really care about Palestine you don't wait until the game against an Israeli team to show support. However, the fund is exactly the right way of showing solidarity in a non-belligerent way. Good stuff.

Flags obviously a good move if this and the numerous articles raising awareness is the result. It's a flag (probably the only flag considered an illegal banner apart from ISIS flag lol) joejoe, sad that this is an issue for anyone.

Palestinian flags at every home game btw, not that you'd have a clue.

Re: UEFA Champions League 2016-17 feat. VARDY and HURRIKANE

A few years ago against PAOK Saloniki in CL qualifying the police stormed into our fan block because the ultras (who have a fan friendship with a macedonian club) showed a macedonian flag who greeks apparently don't get along with

These over reactions are so dumb since they're pretty much always a huge part of what gets people's attention

Just over £60k now and no sign of slowing down.

Medical Aid Palestine will be pleased.

Over £100k now and still no sign of slowing down. I seen a lot of requests to leave it open until payday so wouldn't be surprised to see this double.

Did someone leak the Europa League draw and they all really, really don't want to go to some random back street in Kazakhstan?
