Depends on the "fireworks". It's a wide ranging term, and a daft one we shouldn't use, because they're not fireworks. It's something you hear ignorant commentators use because they're absolutely flabergasted at what is a common sight literally all over the world.

Actual real fireworks, ban em. Flares, keep em.

Most of the flares you see at football matches in almost every league on the planet are proper football ones, not ones you use at sea. Those things are deadly, I know, I let one off once. It's a solid tube of heavy metal that glows white hot and can do a lot of damage. But the flares you see at matches are more smoke based ones that are a lot safer. Like I said most leagues all over the world even in tiny countries of 100,000s of people use flares and nobody dies.

The scepticism and tbf sneering from commentators and pundits towards great atmosphere is fucking bizare to me. We used to have atmospheres like that not that long ago. The Prem has fucked everybody's minds.

yeah... allegri: one sub, two goals in 10 mins. not sure why no one mentions him when we're all banging on about which manager would be best.

should have watched this with my father-in-law. didn't think any of you fuckers would be bothered either.

Innit. Nobody seems to rate him or Juve. They're always in with a shout because they pass that knowledge and experience of the CL through every team. And their manages are some of the best in the biz, best tacticians, best thinkers.

everyone likes to have a wank over Conte but Allegri is the one who took them forward in the Champions League and to two finals.

as an aside... I guess I should have said "two subs" but I felt it was specifically bringing lichsteiner on and changing the shape that got the goals (and gave them the shape that allowed them to close the match down)

Great atmosphere 1-2 Juventus , though i didnt see any roman candles burning or hear Ringo Starr thumping maybe the great Potch will consider contacting Standard Fireworks next season.
Juve were absolutely class like the old days once they got in front.
Atmosphere must have been pants at the Emptyhad too.

Then: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=17&start=10910
