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.

Kerry GillenAll of the ingredients for a Heysel or Hillsborough situation were there last night.
My thoughts exactly Kerry.
And yet Wembley were reporting last night during the game that no-one had made ingress.
I can't imagine the person tasked with being in charge of the full operation being able to keep their job.I

Amount of people on train and tube who we’re planning to Wembley and try and sneak in. After what happened on Wednesday, action could have been done to resolve it. Made a decision to try and get in the ground at 6PM, as was concerned they would shut the turnstiles as mate reckons thousands were trying to get in. Absolutely embarrassing for UEFA, Wembley and the FA.

Thank God Russia got the WC not us, and it, mainly, kept the bellends away. I got lambasted a decade ago on here for saying that. Am beginning to think Germany in 2024 might be similar (to last night)...
