    Seemed that there was some shouting during the minute's silence, then some of the crowd asking for silence, followed by some more shouting and then booing from a section of the crowd. A few people drinking too much? Didn't sound very respective

    About half a dozen clowns out of 50,000 people.
    Hardly worth a mention here.

    You'll always have scumbags, hence why we need a minute's silence in the first place. They should just stick to minute's applause at sports events.

    Jesus Christ 2 people out of 60,000.

    Get over it ffs.

    being reported that it was a few bosnians who disrepected it

    Same old with football fans. They had a minutes silence at a Celtic match last week for rememberance Sunday. They couldn't just keep quiet for 60 seconds

    Im dreading England v France tomorrow.


    The NFL had people shouting things out during their silences over the weekend too.

  • Registered Users Posts: 386 ✭✭scouttio


    I was at the match. It was one or two idiots in the Bosnian crowd. They were shushed by everyone, even the rest of the away fans.

    It was Bosnia fans I assumed at the time. Then Irish fan yelled '' shut the fucck up ''
    but they didn't so crowd booed and then Irish attempted to turn it into a minutes applause to drown out the fans who would not be quite. It was a sham, but it was Bosnia fans who ruined it. Funny , whole of the Bosnia supporters in crown wore black too. I found that weird.

    Bosnians are mostly Muslims no surprise they support their brothers in arms.

    I'm not sure any of this matters in the slightest.


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,403 ✭✭✭✭vicwatson


    Majority of Bosnian fans clapping Irish team as they passed on 'lap of honour'. Respect!


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,067 ✭✭✭MarkY91


    I apologise deeply for some away fans making noise OP. Please forgive the other 45 thousand people in attendance........

    Not that I'm trying to tar all our Muslim friends with the same brush, but Islam is the largest religion in Bosnia, so I'm not too surprised that some knobhead, Bosnian soccer fans would have disrespected the minutes silence.
    Just like our knobhead soccer fans who insist on inserting the IRA chant into the Fields of Athenry

    Yeah, 45% of Bosnians are Muslim so it's not hard to believe that a couple of the fans weren't respectful of the minute silence..


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,005 ✭✭✭Letree


    Country is 45% muslim so at least one of them didn't give it the 'walla hu ackbar' treatment.

    Yeah, because Muslims = supporters of terrorism, right?
