Langeveldt: I of course blame their parents.. and unchecked immigration!

If money was not an issue, I'd love to go to River Plate vs Boca.
Money wouldn't be an issue after the game. As you'd have been rioted to death.
Went to River Plate v Sporting Cristal in 96, was a Copa Libertadores match iirc.
We went through 3 security checks including pat downs to get in, the ground was being patrolled by riot squad cops with rottweilers and there was razor wire around the ground. It was like an ALP right-wing faction meeting.
We were about 10 rows back on half way - really good seats which we were told were safe. No one told the nutbag sitting next to us though, who spent 60 minutes staring daggers at my wife and I.. Even the other local fans were making the "cuckoo" sign to us about him. We were the only English speakers there I think. Though the nutbag bloke evetnually understood "**** off".
Ftr River won either 5-3 or 5-2. Hernan Crespo played for them and scored with a stunning bicycle kick from the 18 yard line. The stadium has a lot of old style terraces, which were packed. Flares going off, singing, banners, was amazing.. When the crowd was chanting up in the terraces they were all stamping their feet, and you could actually feel the vibrations through the seats.
Quite an experience I can tell you.

#408. Sixty three not out forever.
Would just be incredible , follow it up with Galatasary and Fenerbache and then Roma vs Lazio
Yeah, and of course Barca v Real.
Always remember Figo (iirc) taking a corner when he moved from one to the other, and as he was doing so the jilted fans threw a pig's head on the field at his feet...
So....a job paying about 10k more than wha I'm on meow has sprung up in Melbournia...going to have a crack as it looks like a decent next stepping stone in my 'career' if that's waht you'd call it...do i want to live in melbourne...will make it 3 cities in 3 years and have to do the whole meeting new people thing again....prob not a bad thing really.
Managed to catch Crvena Zvezda and Partizan live. Was a draw but the atmosphere was amazing. Flares, chants and fights erupting in the opposite stand. Quite a few chairs got broken by some of the Ultras over there. They were called Delije or something. As for the game, well, nothing overly spectacular and a bit of a slow paced game but still was well worth going for it.
