UEFA EURO 2020
Something I raised earlier in the tournament was the pathetic security arrangements. After the shambles of last night, quite frankly... we do not deserve to host a home tournament in this country until the security at Wembley is giving a complete overhaul.
When we went to Russia, you had private security, Fifa volunteers, the police and the military all carrying out proper ticket/person checks on everyone at certain checkpoints. It all went very quickly and without fuss.
The scenes yesterday at Wembley were truly ridiculous, from how easy it was for people to get into the stadium for free to random fights breaking out between stewards and fans. What's the point in collecting the caps now when you can just waltz in un-challenged? It was good to see some honest England fans challenging these free loaders but it shouldn't be their job.
The current security arrangements are not fit for purpose. Something needs to happen.
Little wonder it again felt way more than 60k again. In the few mins we were accessing the ground we saw a turnstile been forced and circa 30 young lads steam in. We also were surrounded by a further 10 who couldnt get through our turnstile as they didn't have proper tickets and it was clear they were trying to jibb in with us. How the Hell did they manage to get passed the Covid and intial ticket checks? If this happened in the couple of mins we were there God knows how many got in across all the gates across the full entry time. Loads of England fans watching in the concourse side of the stadium and booing the antics of these characters. Whilst we were 'robustly challenging' those around us who, it was clear, were trying to bend us over. Absolute shambles.

Graham MorrisonAre people really trying to get someone sacked
Absolutely Graham yep they are.
And rightly so.
Not up to the job.
Nothing learned from the semi.
I thought we'd eradicated scenes like this to the bad old days when overcrowding and storming of gates etc caused injuires and fatalities.
