I am sorry, I still can't forget Euro2004 qualification play-offs against Croatia... :depress:
I was bothered by the following fact:
60 Slovenian fans were arrested in Zagreb on the first match. I heard some of them had a banner where Zagreb was written in "cirilica", others for cheering "Carla Del Ponte", some of them for pissing at the stadium although nobody was allowed to go to the toilette... and some of them were arrested just - because of nothing, or to "prevent them from causing problems at the stadium" as it was officially stated from Croatian authoritites.
In the return match in Ljubljana, Croatian fans were constantly throwing fireworks at our fans (our fans responded, however it was the Croatians who started it, I know because I was at the stadium), at the end of the match they were damaging some plastic chairs and throwed them to the pitch... And guess how many of them were arrested? Only one, that's right, only one.
Not to mention, that Croatian fans were allowed to leave the stadium first in both games, while Slovenian fans were held in the stadium for more than one hour in both cases.
Now, I am asking myself, what country do we live in? Is it strange that Croatian politicians do whatever they want in regards of relations between both countries? No, in my opinion. Because they know, we are Kekci, we will write a protest note or two, and be a little grumpy for a couple of days, but at the end, we will let them do what they want. This football match was a clear message to the Croatians, that they can do whatever they want in our country and they won't get punished for that. While on the other side, they treat our people like sh!t in their country, even though they earn big bucks from slovenian tourists who massively go to Croatia for vacations. And some of them even dislike us for that reason (I know, I've spoken to one Croatian fan after the game). I know not all Croatians are like that, but even a thought that some of them think it that way makes me
I am disgusted by our country authorities, I really am.
