Ajax v AZ Alkmaar - Keeper v Fan

In this game last night, a supporter tries to attack the AZ keeper...the AZ keeper gives him a kicking, but then is sent off for violent conduct by the ref, so the AZ manager orders his players off the pitch and the game is abandoned!

i can understand the sending off, laws of the game and all that, but i feel sorry for him, the thug (the fan) deserved it...

Ajax should also get in trouble for his behaviour... wonder how he got across the moat?

Yeah, I suppose it is laws of the game, but didn't really help diffuse the situation!

I wonder what the steward is thinking as he chases the fan...probably "oh ****, oh ****, oh ****, oh ****".

it's an odd one. it's never good to see someone being kicked when they're on the ground, just something quite vicious about it. i'd much prefer it if he'd used his fists. but he is a goalie so he probably thought he'd get sent off, as it was out side the area.

Apparently, he got onto the field via the handicapted area, that is of course, not so well policed as other areas of the stadium (no one excepts a wheel-chair pitch invasion!) The so-called fan has now claimed he suffers from an illness and should also be treated as a victim!

Generally I'd agree with that but in this case the keeper wasn't trying to take his head off just give him a couple of kicks up the backside. Frankly the fan deserved it and the keeper can argue it was his way of restraining him. Glad to see that the red has been overturned and I thought the manager's response was fantastic.

The attacker was already banned from the stadium and had borrowed somebody's card to get in.

There's a difference between tackling the fan and defending himself (which at first that is how I saw it) but then continuing to kick him while on the floor is a bit much

He knocked the man to the ground and then stopped him from regaining his feet where he'd be in a position to try another assault. He stopped kicking him once a steward arrived to restrain the attacker. Seems quite reasonable to me. If he'd kicked him to the head or upper-body then it could be claimed to be excessive force but both kicks were around the legs.
