Poor start to the season after all the big signings.

A few Everton fans don't think Koeman is the right man to take them forward.

Arsenal game an hour late after Cologne fans rioting on the streets of London. 20,000 travelled for an allocation of 3,000. Alot more in the stadium, probably just as well they're 1-0 up because they'll be rioting inside the stadium if they start losing.

We will soon find out if those fears are justified. Sanchez puts arsenal into the lead.

Can't understand why people are attacking the club for letting people in last night. After the fans had already charged and kicked down barriers unprovoked, I wonder what situation you'd have after they started turning them away with tickets.

For a start, what you turning them away on if they haven't got team colours on? Funny accent? Love to have seen that one....arsenal turns away fans based on the fact they are called jurgen. Be a sh*tstorm

Clearly alot of tickets in the home areas got into the hands of Cologne fans.

Alot of Arsenal fans, especially families, felt intimidated, and there was little stewarding to deal with it.

I don't think 99% of the Cologne fans were there to cause trouble but to have a good time and support their club who hadn't seen European football in a million years.

Always likely that loads would travel as their normal home gate is 50k.

From experience the issues arise when the away side scores and their fans celebrate amongst the home fans. On the whole English fans are alot more laid back than say 30 years ago and most will tolerate it, but you will get hotheads who react, and it still isn't a good idea for fans to mix.

It isn't rugby after all!

Cologne charged with crowd disturbance, fireworks, thrown objects, acts of damage.

Arsenal charged for a blocked stairway.

I guess UEFA had to find something.

I like how Cologne are blaming security even though more than 17,000 Cologne fans traveled that did not have official tickets.

Take some responsibilty for your fans

The club can't really do much to stop people going, can they? Although saying arsenal should have pre emptied and prepared for it, as they have, because arsenal should have known everyone who applied for a ticket would travel without one is a really moronic point

Cologne can advice fans not to travel if they dont have tickets. Other than this there is not much they can do.

But it also seems unfair that the home team cater for 600 percent more away fans coming for the game.

Other teams will not be looking forward to visiting Cologne fans.

Östersund from Central Northern Sweden has just beaten Hertha Berlin :salute

Huge upset and an incredible result for Östersund.

Google the place on a map, its a long way North.

Being managed by Englishman Graham Potter who has taken the team from the 4th division in 2011 to Swedish cup success last year and now 2 wins on the trott in the Europa League. Incredible achievement

First time since 1971, according to Spanish TV, that a European round more than one German team has seen them all lose.
