As it hits the headlines that a Spurs fan is lying critically injured after being stabbed in Rome, the time has come to take serious action!

With reports suggesting that up to 100 Lazio fans attacked ten Spurs fans enjoying a quite drink, leaving two fans seriously injured, with one said to be in a critical condition, you have to feel that enough is enough and radical punishment has to be metered out to a club that seems riddled with racism and fan violence.

The club were fined £32,000 for their racist chants towards our black players at WHL, but it has always been clear that just fining a club for its fans actions would never work, whilst forcing the team to play behind closed doors or banning away supporters offers no guarantee of rival fan safety before or after the game. With this in mind, I feel that UEFA and perhaps a national Football Association need to take action and stop a team entering European competition for the good of the game and the reputation of a nation.

Perhaps we should go as far as calling off tonights game and throwing Lazio out of the Europa league as lessons clearly haven’t been learned and surely fan safety and the reputation of the game is more important than any club that fails to deal with their fans problems and cannot ensure the safety of their rival supporters…
