Vrhunski...and you find these videos funny?
Have you ever been to a single game at one of those grounds (Belgrade, Athens, Zagreb, Instanbul...)?
I, for instance have watched numerous Partizan Belgrade football matches at their own ground ,including games against Newcastle Utd, Lazio and ofcourse Red Star Belgrade (Crvena Zvezda) and I can tell you when these so called fans go crazy it is not funny at all.
If you find that fire crackers and gas bombs falling near you funny, then I don't know what kind of human being are you.
You do realize that there are family with children there too?
There have been numerous dead cases in Belgrade alone in the last 10 years or so and I think that is not something to be clarified as LOLLLL but it is tragic.
When I go to watch football game I want to watch football game, not some idiots throwing stones and knives and who knows what on them.
For those reasons, I stopped going to the games while I was living in that part of the world. It became insane. Those people are not football fans. Those people are former prisoners, gang members etc. who don't care if their club wins or loses. They want to fight.
The governments of these countries (Serbia, Croatia, Greece, Turkey...just to name the few) needs to do something to stop the violence. They have tried in the past but no results, as these countries are poor and all have other more important problems to deal with. I guess that's why the hooliganism is booming there. People are poor, no jobs, no security, so they vent all their anger at those games, especially football games. UEFA also needs to act and punish these clubs more heavily in order to stop the violence.
They just have to look at England and the way they manage to put an order in their fans behaviour (on English soil though).
If not, football in these countries will die soon and you can see that it is going downward with the speed of light especially in Serbia and Croatia.
