That's reassuring. To be honest when I read and heard of deaths in U.K., Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Portugal, India etc I genuinely believed the victims to be dead. I now know, thanks to you that it's hacks making it all up. Those funerals were a sham. Sickening

Do you want to put up links to these reports? Were they incidences where flares were used properly or where some clown decided to fire one at somebody?

Thank-you for opening my eyes though... I didn't realise France, Italy, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands etc. where they're regularly seen being used, I presumed, safely at matches had the same safety records, legislation and controls as countries like Bolivia and Peru. I thought the countries I mentioned were modern democracies which took the welfare of their citizens seriously. Obviously not, I'm scared to go to Rome, Paris or Berlin now; will I be ok or should I just go to Bognor Regis instead?

Thanks also for awakening me about the hotbed of football that is India.

Nauseating to see the Linfield scum come out with "We came,we saw, we closed down the Green Brigade" and laughing.Shite on the pitch,scum off it,but they have damaged Celtic beyond their wildest dreams and caused potentially a poisonous split within the club,which will no doubt lead to Rodgers and even Desmond questioning their continued involvement with Celtic.Well done Green Brigade.😡😡

I replied to that guy once in this thread, I hadn't at that time realised that he's a prize idiot, best to ignore his trolling.

I'd define a prize idiot as someone pontificating about something he knows zilch about, and actually believing he's right, rather than someone commentating on something he's done and seen dozens of times.

How do you get to be as stupid as you by the way? Do you collect Frosties tokens or something?

First thing was the link is to a Seria A game and not a Champions League game, the Italian FA is responsible for this. If this happend during a CL game they would have been severley punished.
Second pyrotechnics can burn at 1600 degrees C and you can't extinguish them either, even if they've never killed anyone before (which they have) they still have the potential too and can you imagine the burn you'd get of them...(i've seen the pictures). Can you imagine what would happen if a fan dropped it (getting burnt) in a wodden stand (see Bradford Fire) not to mention that they're illegal anyway and are smuggled into the grounds.

As for standing on your flares you're talking so much shite it's not even funny. You can put a lit flare into a bucket of water for 24 hours and as soon as you take it out it will ignite again...I repeat you can't put them out, the only way to stop them is let them burn out. How we are trained to deal with a flare is lift it with a litter picker and set them into a bucket of sand and remove it to a safe place and then remove it from the sand and let it burn out.

Time for the Green Brigade to wise to f*%k up. Their statement is basically saying we bring great support to the team and noise to the stadium and it comes at the cost of us doing what we like regardless of safety law to which the club must comply and the rules of the competitions we aspire to be in.

I am with them that the game is bent and every man has the right to his own opinion and how he expresses himself but they have to learn where and when.

They actually, in their statement, cite issues in the game yet their displays are not about these. If that is their stated grievance why not have that at the forefront of their displays?

I have a soft spot for them like a lot of Celtic supporters but they need to become more savvy.

How we are trained to deal with a flare is lift it with a litter picker and set them into a bucket of sand and remove it to a safe place and then remove it from the sand and let it burn out.

First, I never said it was a CL match and my apologised but I nearly p*ssed myself at the part where you said a wooden stand like at Bradford. You're just making this up as you go along aren't you? How many football stadia do you know that are built out of wood these days lmfao! I know the mothered football supporters of England and Scotland would think the bogeyman flare monster was going to get them but to put them out you can push the lit bit against a surface (preferably concrete or such a surface which doesn't burn easily, I wouldn't try it with wood even if you can locate a stadium made of the stuff these days) and stub it out. You can do it with your hand or your foot.

Now, 1600 degrees C you say... Another jackanory story. Whilst certain types of flares can burn at that temperature, are you going to tell us all do? How is it then that people are (a)able to hold them in their hand above their heads without receiving any burn and not simply dropping them because they get roasted off the heat of them, (b)when they are burnt en masse, and look at videos of flares in countries like Turkey or Greece where the whole stand looks like it's ablaze how is it that the fans can stick the heat lol and (c)if the ones customarily used in football stadia burn at 1600 degrees C how is it that the place stays intact (particularly given a lot of them are lit and thrown onto the ground)? Plastic melts at between about 100 and 300 degrees C and ignites at approximately 550. Concrete loses cohesion at approximately 1200 degrees C so, according to the rubbish that you're spouting, part of the stand wouldn't stay intact. I'm also going to point out that you might not be aware that you can buy the sort of flare used at football matches for about 1 a piece. Now, if for 1 a piece you can get a flare which burns after being thrown into sand or being in water for 24 hours then the purchaser is getting a serious piece of equipment at some value eh? Oh and the ones typically used at football matches burn for maximum of about 60 seconds so by the time they've been ignited, you've gotten to them, gotten your litter picker ready, put them into sand either you're Usain Bolt's cousin or you're telling porkies.

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt though and assume you mean well and that some health and safety Hitler has filled your head with nonsense that flares at football matches and flash bangs are the same thing. Enjoy your prawn sandwiches and a few hand claps the next time you go to a football match. I'll stick with the atmosphere of matches on the continent.

Aye yeah! Enjoy the prawn sandwiches, Mummy's knitted scarf and don't forget to clap if your team scores a goaly woaly now.

Another one who thinks football flares and flash bangs are the same thing  ::).

Look all i can tell you is i went to a seminar in Celtic Park on Pyrotechnics where there was a company there showing us the different types of Pyrotechnics that are out there, they showed us the videos of how they react and how unpredictable they are. They lit one ouside and put into water and left it for a while and when they took it out it ignited straight away again, yes you are right on the price you can get them at on the internet but you don't know what you're buying and who you're buying from (as well as being illegal). You are also correct in saying the don't all burn at 1600 but how can you be sure the ones you've bought do not...again buying of a dodgy internet site you don't know what you're buying (and they're illegal).

You are also correct about the majority of stadiums being constructed from concrete and steel but i'm sure there are still a few old stands about somewhere about the country which consists mainly of timber but could you imagine the scene during one of Celtic's previous games where the whole section of the GB's area had flags that covered the whole area above their heads and they had a few flares popping out if they had of caught fire...it would have been a disaster.

Now i'm actually going to take the experts opinion on Pyrotechnics and not yours, these guys have tested them in Labs and have showed us the damage they have caused throughout the world. Some of the pictures we seen where people had been so badly burnt you couldn't recognise their hands was scary, yes you can hold them as they burn out from the top and only go so far down before they burn out but they're unpredictable and they're not all the same (if they were safe they wouldn't be illegal).

You named other Countries there and again you're probably right as they may not be banned in Boliva, Peru etc but they are over here as the EU laws are a lot stricter. Again they're illegal for a reason but i guess you know better than the experts.

You don't know anything about me and to say i'm prawn sandwich man is wrong, I love the craic at a match with banter, singing etc but my job or others like me in a stadium is to make sure all people can come to a match/event and watch it safely. That's getting into the ground, watching the match and getting out safely. So that Seamus (etc) can bring his kids to the game and not worry about them getting set on fire. The GB are fantastic and bring great atmosphere to CP but they over step the mark sometimes and can't be allowed to disobey the rules when they feel like it.
