  • UEFA opens disciplinary proceedings against Arsenal, Cologne

Stoger's Cologne suffered a 3-1 loss to Arsenal following a one-hour delay to kick-off at the Emirates Stadium due to crowd congestion in London.

"Following last night's UEFA Europa League match with Cologne, we would like to stress that fan safety was always our paramount concern and informed all decisions made", Arsenal's statement said.

Arsenal said they were investigating how away fans gained access after pictures emerged of a minority of Cologne supporters causing problems for stewards inside the stadium.

"This will be dealt with by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on September 21", a UEFA statement read.

We expected that it would be the end of the experiment, but Wenger suggested otherwise on Thursday.

Speaking after the match Arsene Wenger said: 'They (Cologne fans) were very clever. "They will certainly make an enquiry into seeing what happened for sure".

He replied: "That's what I do: Because I like boobs and the First Amendment, which is exactly what I said". Travis rehashed the line a few times, never completely clearing up the expectation behind his announcement.


"I moved to a four in the second half, [Sead] Kolasinac I think gave us a lot going forward, but as well he pushed Sanchez forward, who played deep in the first half".

Some 20,000 FC Cologne fans have come to the capital for tonight's match against Arsenal. "Three officers were injured as a result of the disorder, none of them seriously, and five people were arrested on suspicion of public order offenses".

Arsenal have pledged to conduct a full investigation into the events before and during the game and claim that many tickets were obtained through third party sales rather than directly through official channels.

Later some quick-witted Cologne fans even bought themselves Arsenal scarves and changed the backgrounds on their phones to the Gunners' club crest to gain entry using home tickets. "Many tickets were sold through touts and this is very disappointing".

A number of media commentators argued that the Cologne fans had given English supporters a glimpse of what's been lost in an age where clubs are heavily reliant on television deals and less so on paying spectators.

The statement continued: "These people are exclusively responsible for the fact that a football match with a special meaning for an entire region, as well as the courageous effort of our team on the pitch, had to be overshadowed by scenes that had nothing to do with sport and fair play".
