One of the lead articles on today's Gazzetta site is the report on trouble last night in Manchester. In particular the article focuses on the lager-fuelled antics of Rangers fans and on the thankfully minor stabbing of a Zenit fan. The article doesn't make it explicit but the clear implication is: look, people, it's not just us. With splendind irony, a reader has commented below "I heard that they were all Italians just dressed up as Rangers fans." haha.
Will we now hear Alan Green et al pontificating on how Rangers should be thrown out of all European competitions? or that Manchester is clearly a wholly unsuitable place to hold a high profile football match, and is an inherently dangerous uncivilised pit of hell? Methinks not. Ah well.
