these charges By: Reuters | Zurich | Updated: August 1 2017 3:07 pm FIFA said it would not change its stance and all matches in its competitions would have to take place in all-seater stadiums (Source: AP) Top News Former Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp once described entering the pitch to the clamour of fans on Europe’s biggest standing tribune at the club’s Signal Iduna stadium as “like being born” “You go through this dark tunnel to get on to the pitch it’s precisely two metres high” he said “When you come out the place explodes… out of the darkness and into the light You look to your left and it seems there are about 150000 people up on the terrace all going completely nuts” “The only difference is that when you are born there aren’t as many people applauding” The sight that caught the imagination of Klopp now manager of Liverpool was the Suedtribuene with standing room for 25000 fanatical flag-waving supporters Standing though has long been banned at the World Cup the European championship and European club competitions In England all-seater stadiums became mandatory in the top two divisions following the Hillsborough disaster in 1989 when 96 fans were killed in a crush at the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest A campaign to bring back standing areas gained fresh impetus on Monday when members of the Liverpool supporters’ group Spirit of Shankly (SOS) voted overwhelmingly in favour of safe standing in an online poll Even so any changes to the existing legislation would require government approval as well as the backing of the football authorities And SOS emphasised that they were not actively campaigning in favour of standing In countries such as Germany Austria Switzerland and Sweden standing has not been banned Instead standing areas have been redesigned to make them safer while allowing fans to create a vibrant atmosphere “It’s not theatre it’s football… it’s important to have these emotions” said Benni Burkart head of security at Swiss Super League club St Gallen adding that he did not consider standing to be a risk in itself “The risk are the people who do not obey the rules” he told Reuters There are several varieties of safe standing where terraces can quickly be converted to seats for European club matches Rail seats are widely used in the German Bundesliga Each row has a safety barrier which incorporates a seat that can either be locked into an upright position for standing or unlocked and folded into position for sitting Other varieties include clip-on seats where terrace steps have metal clips that seats can be attached to and removed from and fold-away seats which can be slipped under aluminium steps Like its German counterpart Austria’s Bundesliga views standing as beneficial and safe “We like to offer different target groups a wide range of services” the Austria league said in an e-mailed statement to Reuters “Those include seats VIP offers special offers for families in addition to standing places — which are both for the active fan scene or for spectators who simply prefer not to sit down” “It can also be observed that the noise in the stadium as a rule emanates from the active fan scene in the standing places” The league did not share the concept that standing fans increased the risk of vandalism “There are a wide range of measures to ensure the safety of spectators including wide stairs crash barriers and security cameras” it said Even so standing remains contentious Global soccer’s governing body FIFA said it would not change its stance and all matches in its competitions including the World Cup qualifiers would have to take place in all-seater stadiums “The safety of spectators at FIFA matches is our primary concern and we are not considering any change to our position regarding appropriate spectator accommodation at FIFA matches” said a spokesperson In France the National Association of Supporters (ANS) issued a 20-page booklet in November explaining why it was in favour of a return of standing areas “(It) would promote a greater atmosphere in the stadiums would allow cheaper places limit the costs of maintaining the stands and prevent supporters from injuring themselves by standing in appropriate surroundings” it said Spain’s La Liga does not allow standing and fans seem content simply to ignore the rules something which standing’s supporters say happens elsewhere “One of the problems we have at the moment is that people stand up in seating areas anyway and then the people behind them are also forced to stand” said Peter Daykin from England’s Football Supporters’ Federation (FSF) “It’s preferable to have designated standing areas rather than having areas where some people stand and others don’t The fans deserve proper and safe standing areas” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: PTI | New Delhi | Published: October 13 2017 12:40 am Mohun Bagan have

Published Date: Oct 21 2017 11:43 AM | Updated Date: Oct 21 2017 11:43 AM Tags : It was the Bofors howitzer scandal thatbrought down the Rajiv Gandhi government in 1989 Since then none from the dynasty has been the prime minister although the Congress has been in power Now when its political fortune is at its lowest ebb with its tally of Lok Sabha MPs at a humiliating 45 — a far cry from the 415 of the 543 elected seats it won in 1984 — the Congress has been hit by yet another scandal This time it is not howitzers but helicopters But the charge is the same – embezzlement of funds by Congress politicians If Rajiv Gandhi was the prime suspect in the 1980s it is his widow Sonia who is now in the firing line of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) The needle of suspicion is pointing towards her because of the reference to "Signora Sonia" as the "driving force" behind the purchase of the helicopters in a letter written by a middleman James Christian Michel to the India head of AgustaWestland Peter Hulet Representational image PTI An Italian court has also noted that there is "reasonable belief" that the helicopter deal was not fair or above board There is little doubt that there’s a long way to go before the Congress president or anyone else in the party is charged with incontrovertible proof against them The case against Rajiv Gandhi for instance in the Bofors affair has never been conclusively settled notwithstanding the references in the Bofors chief Martin Ardbo’s diary to an "N" widely believed to be Arun Nehru who was Rajiv’s ministerial colleague at the time "Q" probably the Italian businessman Ottavio Quottrocchi who was said to be close to "R" (Rajiv ) and to an unspecified "Gandhi trustee lawyer" But the difference between then and now is that the Congress is no longer in power let alone be in an unassailable position as in the early years of Rajiv Gandhi’s premiership The Congress’s clout at the time enabled Quottrocchi to leave India while the investigative agencies looked the other way Such dodgy manoeuvres will no longer be possible The party is currently bereft of both the earlier nationwide political influence and the popularity of the first family which led to Rajiv Gandhi’s massive victory in 1984 Instead the plethora of corruption cases which brought down the Manmohan Singh government in 2014 has made the Congress a byword for sleaze in public perception The Agusta deal can be said to be a part of the series of shady transactions such as the scams relating to 2G spectrum the Commonwealth Games the Adarsh housing society or the coal block allocations which characterised Manmohan Singh’s tenure In the present scenario even if the Congress’s piggyback ride on the Left in West Bengal fetches it a few seats the success will not bring the party much joy In any event as long as the names of its top leadership are not cleared of malfeasance the Congress’s new friends are likely to maintain a safe distance from the party It will not only be the communists who will be wary of the Congress but also Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad Yadav especially the latter who will remember how Rahul Gandhi was reluctant to share the stage with him in Bihar because of the Rashtriya Janata Dal leader’s conviction in the fodder scam Now the boot is on the other foot For the BJP the Congress’s entanglement in yet another corruption case is a godsend as it will take much of the steam out of the Congress’s aggression in parliament The BJP appears to have left it largely to its in-house maverick Subramanian Swamy to take on the Congress in both the Agusta and National Herald cases The second litigation is about the first family’s control over the assets of a newspaper founded by Jawaharlal Nehru which is no longer published The Congress’s and the dynasty’s woes suggest that a recovery is a long way off The fact that the Agusta agreement took place at a time when two leaders known for their integrity – prime minister Manmohan Singh and defence minister AK Antony — were at the helm of affairs is a pointer to the presence in the party of powerful individuals who are prone to cutting corners True the deal was cancelled an inquiry ordered and the company blacklisted by the previous government But the Italian court is still not convinced that nothing untoward happened The Narendra Modi government on its part should push ahead with the probe instead of trying to score political points from the Congress’ discomfiture In the aftermath of the Bofors scam there was an attempt especially by Rahul Gandhi to rid the Congress of its dubious reputation The most visible of such endeavours was the tearing up of an ordinance by Rahul which was patently intended to nullify Lalu Prasad’s conviction Since then however the Congress vice president has shown signs of "pragmatism" which is a euphemism for a compromise with wrong-doing Now the Agusta revelations have made it more difficult for the Congress to claim that it follows the straight and narrow path By: Express News Service | Chandigarh | Published: March 11 2017 4:44 am Top News A DAY before the Punjab Assembly election results the
