Following the terrible and indecent incidents which occured during Inter-Milan, what actions should UEFA take against the Nerazzurri? Just a fine and ground ban for the next European matches? Or should they be banned from European competitions? Should a sanction also hit other Italian teams? Will these incidents happen again during the high-risk Juventus-Liverpool match? Let us know at you@goal.com!

If someone is interested in writing a sentence or two defending us..it will be great. You need super skills though, cause everyone hates us now and it will be damn though. Could somebody please try to write something?

It will be useless to try and convince everyone of the fans' actions. Even the support for the Curva Nord is divided amongst the legion of Inter fans on the board - what more neutral fans who simply see the incidents as pure hooligan acts and nothing else?

Ciao,
Tim

I can't be arsed writing a report because I can't be arsed because I'm too arsy, but if anyone wants to, I could give you a few ideas to expand on.

1: Self control was lost.
2: Merk crossed specific boundaries, such as arguing back with the players.
3: Shevchenko headbut. Not even yellow.
4: Cambiasso penatly.
5: Ambrosini on yellow, makes two dreadful challenges, nothing.
6: Cambiasso goal, then he gets yellow when pleading.

etc etc etc

Man if we don't defend ourselfs they are going to demolish us. Them Brits are talking all kinds of stuff about us and how they wish we don't play in Europe for 5 years. I say someone should start writing a report or something...and post it here before he posts on goal.com so that other forum members will help to put more stuff or clarify things. And then we should appologize and say something like "We are sorry for what happened by the Forza Nerrazirri Forums, the only official Inter forums - visit us at www.whatever.com. So what do you guys thing?

They're a bunch of bitter farkwits, whose love for their clubs are outweighed by the hate for Inter.
If anyone wants to, I encourage them, but I can't be farked, because what good does it make?

Should we? that's a big question mark. Not all are at fault, and i've never been the type to think that a club should be punished for what a small portion of it's fanbase decided to do.

Will we? make no mistake about it, we'll be made an example of. And with our luck, a ban from next year's competition is not out of the question either.

I think a ban for next seasons CL is best case scenario.

I don't want to hear whats the worst case scenario.

i think being banned is a terrible scenario. I think the best case scenario is we get a rematch lol. A realistic best case scenario is playing in an empty stadium like Roma and possibly fines.

A long stadium ban and huge fine would be appropriate. I think a european ban would be the extreme.

I sent an email to them already. This is what I wrote:
----------------------------

Hi,

Firstly, I must admit that I am an Inter fan. I you think that I will be biased towards my own team, then I beg you to finish reading my email before making any judgements.

It was a very shameful thing the Inter fans did, during the match. They should have controlled themselves, and not let their emotions go wild. Inter should be punished for what the fans did.

But, at the same time, I beg you to see things in a different perspective. The referee of the match, Markus Merk, made some very horrible decisions. Firstly, Shevchenko was not sent off, or even a yellow card, for headbutting Materazzi early in the game. Shevchenko then scored the goal which gave Milan a practically unsailable lead. Then, Merk also failed to give Inter a penalty when Cambiasso was brought down by Nesta in the box. Cambiasso's goal was also disallowed, for a non-existent foul on Cafu. When Cambiasso pleaded with him, Merk gave Cambiasso a yellow card.

Milan derbies are highly emotional matches. This one was an exceptionally intense one, as we're playing with the CL Semi-Finals spot at stake. With all this horrible refereeing decisions made by Merk, it inevitably angers and provokes the Inter fans. There are speculations that the Inter Ultras had already planned to initiate this "attack", but I'm sure there is a reason to why they started, if the Inter Ultras really did plan for this, earlier than the time which they had already planned. This may be be caused by the agitation and sense of unfairness which arises from Markus Merk's decision.

Inter should be punished for what the fans did, this is undoubtable. I think that a stadium ban for a certain period of time, plus a fine, would be a fair punishment for Inter. At the same time, I strongly suggest the UEFA to review the referee's decisions in the match, and do their best to try to prevent these mistakes from happening, especially in such an important, and highly intense match.

Thank you.

I hope they dont try to make an example of us since Inter doesnt have a bad record when it comes to these things...

Two or three CL games played with no Inter fans should be enough.Dont punish the players and the team punish the fans who did this...

Inter ruling is a test of Uefa's nerve
UEFA face a test of their determination to come down hard on football hooliganism when a disciplinary panel deliver their verdict on Friday on Inter Milan following the abandoned Champions League quarter-final at the San Siro.

Inter have been charged by UEFA after AC Milan's keeper Dida was struck and burned by a flare thrown during a barrage of missiles during the derby on Tuesday night.

At the very least Inter will be thrown out of this season's competition but that is hardly a severe punishment considering they were 3-0 down on aggregate with 17 minutes left to play.

Attention will focus on what other action the disciplinary panel will take, given that in 2001 Inter were ordered to play two European home matches away from the San Siro and fined 35,000 (75,000 Swiss francs) after similar crowd trouble at their UEFA Cup game with Spanish side Alaves.

With growing concern both in UEFA and FIFA at the problem of football-related violence in Italy, there are many senior figures in the game who believe the disciplinary body need to take a very firm line.

Earlier this season, Roma received a two-match stadium ban and heavy fine after referee Anders Frisk was hit by a missile and abandoned the game, but that was viewed as a first offence.

One senior UEFA figure said: 'There is an expectation that Inter should be dealt with properly - if it is just another stadium ban and fine people may view that as UEFA letting them off lightly, and that is not the message we should be sending out.'

There is a precedent for expulsion in that another club Fiorentina were thrown out of the UEFA Cup in 1998 after a home-made explosive device hurled from the crowd during the match against Swiss side Grasshoppers injured the fourth official and caused the match to be abandoned.

Were UEFA to expel Inter, currently third in Serie A, from next season's competition the club would almost certainly appeal - such a ban would in effect cost the Italian club around 10million in television and prize money alone.

Most of the sites are saying likely out come will be 5 games behind closed doors.

Pray they are right.

A ban would be outrageous. They don't hand bans for nothin', and this incident was certainly not as severe as some media would like to make it. The flares were thrown to the pitch to stop the game, not to hurt anyone, whilst the lighter thrown at the Olimpico was thrown with the intention to hurt Frisk. If they take this into consideration, Inter should be OK.
