 Marseille game abandoned

Marseille game abandoned when Payet after being hit with a bottle of water threw it back into the crowd at Nice.
The crowd then stormed the barriers and came on the pitch, as t both sets of players pushed and shoved each other.
Eventually the referee abandoned the game as the Marseille manager had to be held back by his players .
The Nice fans had been pelting Marseille players all game with various missiles ,but with Nice leading 1-0 , Marseille would be happy to go off , I'd imagine a hefty fine and maybe deduction of points for Nice

Oh dear..... Not a great advert for the game, but I don't think a points deduction would be fair on Marseille*. I could see Payet being given a lengthy suspension and his manager a fine and/or a touchline ban. Nice should also be obliged to play behind closed doors for several home games, so that their fans get the message that their behaviour is unacceptable.

* I don't think Man U were deducted any points (nor should they have) when Kung Fu Cantona had his aberration at Selhurst Park.

If memory serves Cantona was arrested and charged. Think he received community service and the footballing authorities banned him for eight months.
French football is today a laughing stock of European football and all football fans everywhere will looking at Ligue Un with disgust. Hyperbole? Certainly but that`s what would be getting said if those scenes were witnessed at an English Premier League fixture.

They just might as well be closed

Nice have been awarded a 3 - 0 win so far which is quite ridiculous

“Officials wanted to complete the rest of the match, however, the Marseille players refused to go back out.

The Ligue de Football Professionel rules state that Nice will be awarded a 3-0 win as Marseille have failed to complete the rest of the match.

However, it’s understood Marseille will take action with the LFP to get this reversed.

After the match, Marseille president Pablo Longoria said: “We need to set precedents for French football.

“The referee was with us, he confirmed that to us, that safety was not assured. His decision was to abandon the match, but the LFP decided to restart the match. It is not acceptable for us.””

So much for the referee’s decision being final.

Farcical.

The amount of stuff thrown at the players during the game , it is about time for authorities to take action against clubs who's fans do this type of behavior .
Fans are copycats if they see one set of fans get away with this, they will continue to do this.

Not directly related to the incident last night (although one of the players with strangle marks was robbed previously) but loads of footballers have been getting robbed in France as well with a couple of the incidents being armed when the players and their families were in the property.

Need to find a way to get the players proper protection over there.

Cantona had to be made an example of but Fergie was ultimately proved right in sticking by his man. The Frenchman repaid him in spades.

The French FA almost make the SFA look competent with that decision. They're applying a rule but zero common sense. The Nice fans are the villains of the piece and Marseille are the victims, the behaviour of Paget and his manager not withstanding.

All those pictures prove is... if you young and daft and run on the pitch you will be attacked by 3 or 4 stewards, arrested and fined, but if there are loads of eejits trying to attack players the stewards merely push you back into the stands

East End Park is a symbol of all that is DAFC.

Not nearly punitive enough, in my humble one.
