Doesnt matter if he is a Red, Roma or ManU, Italian, French or German fan. Simple fact of the matter is that you should never go to a football match armed in any way. Such people are not fans....they are pure SCUM.

Appreciate that, yeah was about all I could find but yer man said that the police confirmed that guy wielding a hammer was not a Roma fan, I was looking for that documented somewhere a little more reputable than his post.

Today should be one of the happiest football days in Sean Cox's life. Instead he's lying in a strange ICU in another country, unaware of the result and fighting for his life. According to reports, it's because of the actions of two 'men' half his age. At 53 himself he shouldn't have even been on their radar.

Absolute toilet bacteria whoever did this. They don't deserve to walk free among the rest of us, never mind get to enjoy a football match.

I see that two men, aged 25 and 26, have been arrested are to be charged with attempted murder. I hope that if these are the two responsible for the assault, they get the punishment they deserve.

Thoughts and best wishes with Mr. Cox and his family, I hope he pulls through.

Football is football. We all support who we do and we hate the clubs we do. It's football. We all have the 'banter' on here.

But this is real life and for someone who just goes to a football match and ends up in hospital like that and fighting for his life is just awful awful stuff.

I'm so sick of scumbags like this latching onto football clubs and behaving like this. It's nothing to do with the club, it's how those individual themselves choose to represent themselves.

Quick to judge what?

The Roma fans came to the entrance of the kop. The went to the opposite side of the away end. They attacked Liverpool fans with weapons and could be responsible for killing someone.

While Liverpool fans were arrested a lot of it was fighting Roma fans outside the kop in self defense.

Nowhere does it say the guy with the hammer wasn't a Roma fan.

The Roma fans are scum and deserve to be banned from all football events. Every single one of the ****ers who went to the kop end to pick a fight.

Quick to judge he was a Roma fan clearly.

Look sorry it doesn't fit your outlook but police have obviously explored the hammer wielder and is not thought to be a Roma fan despite you hoping he is undeniably one.

Liverpool fans had mass brawls at Old Trafford the worst in 18 years when they met in Europe 2 years ago a number of fans from both sides were jailed for a few weeks. All others deserve to be banned by your logic.

Who did they have the brawls with themselves?

To explain do these fans on both sides deserve punishment? Had to be a more Liverpool leaning stance for obvious reasons.

Except it's only people here saying he is not a Roma fan. Not one single link has been provided to back up that claim.

Yes both sides were bad a couple of years ago and stadium bans have been issued. Any time a fan is caught up in acts like this, it is procedure to ban them. That is a thing that is enforced in the UK. The holliganaim is pretty much wiped out of top flight football in the UK.

Roma fans are of course not all bad. But the issue is they have a section of fans who are ultras. Over the last few years these ultras have stabbed, battered and tried to kill opposition fans. Not enough has been done by Roma to get rid of this element. So yes the club should suffer for it. Playing behind closed doors is the only way to force the club to rid itself of the ultras instead of pretending the fans ate just passionate.

How do you know this? There is no reports whatsoever clarifying this? Do you have an insider in the Merseyside police? How can you be certain that they didn’t investigate him after the match, found out he was a Roma fan but was already gone home so couldn’t bring charges against him for holding a hammer in public?

Every single report says it was a Roma fan with the hammer. Not one suggests otherwise
