Who are responsible for this total fiasco for Ligue 1, and what consequences for this “black evening”?

At Parc OL,

Lunar songs sprang from the south turn of Parc OL on Sunday evening, between a tribute to Beaujolais and The hunter by Michel Delpech (yes yes, those famous wild geese). The only moments of freshness of an interminable and disastrous evening for Ligue 1, on the occasion of an OL-OM shock having twisted from the 4th minute of play. For the very first corner of the match, Dimitri Payet was targeted by several projectiles, north turn side. A bottle of water then hits the Marseille captain full in the face, who collapses to the ground, causing the amazement of his teammates.

The height of the rivalry turning to misplaced hatred, the main group of Lyon supporters chants for long minutes “Payet, Payet, we enc you …” to accompany all the players to the locker room, due to an interruption of the match immediately decided by Ruddy Buquet. Shortly after, the south bend starts with “Et Ludivine [le prénom de la compagne de Payet], and Ludivine is a bitch… ”in very bad taste against a player“ psychologically affected ”, in the opinion of its president Pablo Longoria. 20 Minutes tells you four of the main lessons of an evening of twists and turns (but without a ball), and historically frustrating for an armored OL Park (56,000 spectators).

Aulas points to Ruddy Buquet’s “about-face”

Very clever one who remembers the last media appearance (hot) of a French referee in activity. On this point alone, this clash between the Olympics looked like a small event. After temporarily sending everyone back to the locker room at 8:50 p.m., Ruddy Buquet made official the final end of the match at 10:41 p.m. on Sunday. Time to survey each of the 22 actors before setting up a video with Vincent Labrune and Pascal Garibian? “My sporting decision has always been not to resume the match, assures Mr. Buquet on Prime Video, but it was mentioned risks of disturbances to public order which were taken into account initially. “

You see coming the kind of dilemmas with 25 equations, with for example the smooth evacuation of a hot stadium, which was projected during the two weeks of international truce on this crucial poster. ” My decision in fine was to definitively stop the match, for obvious sporting reasons, ”continues the French referee. As often, we could count on Jean-Michel Aulas to plunge us behind the scenes of this affair: “We had imagined with the prefect that the match could resume, and Mr. Buquet had decided this resumption of this match” at the end of ” a meeting of nearly an hour with the presidents of the two clubs, the referees, the prefect, the deputy prosecutor, and a representative of the central public security department (DDSP). A version confirmed by the prefecture on social networks.

At 10:05 p.m., the speaker therefore announces the upcoming resumption of the game, with the hammered instructions of the ban of any incident, which this time would be fatal to the Lyonnais. OL warm up for ten minutes, which OM refuses to do. This is where Jean-Michel Aulas is hot boiling.

There was a certain number of pressures, extremely violent reactions from the Marseillais, who did not understand, and who demanded that Mr. Buquet go and ask for news of Dimitri. Then the referee asked to see the prefect again and he reversed his decision, invoking the safety of the players. What is very unpleasant for the 56,000 spectators, it is especially the about-face in front of the League and the representatives of the State, with this decision which belongs only to the referee. “

Definitely freewheeling, JMA ended his crazy evening by inviting himself to RMC Sport to yell at Daniel Riolo in l’After Foot, which he qualifies in turn of “rascal” and “thug”,

The LFP and the prefect of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes pass the buck

We were also treated to an unexpected burlesque ping-pong between the LFP and the prefecture of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. A few minutes apart, there was a tweet from the prefect: “The decision to resume the match does not belong to the prefect. It belongs to the sole arbiter ”. Vincent Labrune’s LFP was not of the same opinion, in view of a surprisingly reactive press release: “The League regrets in these conditions the decision to resume the OL-OM meeting by the regional prefect”. A disagreement exposed to the eyes of all which it will perhaps be question, this Monday, with “the meeting in urgency” of the disciplinary commission of the LFP.

Three months after Nice-OM, sanctions (this time) exemplary?

After sanctions deemed modest in shambles since the start of the season (Nice-OM, OM-PSG, the Lens-Losc derby …), would there not be a foretaste of ruthless jurisprudence in this dangerous jet of bottle resulting in a 2 hour masquerade? “It is a bottle of water that will perhaps allow us to realize that there are still other decisions to be made,” admits Jean-Michel Aulas. At the moment T, I do not see which one can take in addition, because the stadium is very secure. We are not going to put nets everywhere for an individual when 100% of people come to the game with non-belligerent intentions. As often, it is when the incidents are the least virulent and collective that decisions are made. People who organize things well should not be knocked out. “

A sense of organization that does not seem really optimal at the moment on the side of the Parc OL, between the (very easy) invasion of the field in the middle of a Europa League match by two “Daltons”, at the beginning of the month, and a a certain lightness in the security system put in place on Sunday, especially at the corner posts, a symbolic place of intimidation attempts for some ultras. OGC Nice, which had added an invasion of the field to the throwing of projectiles against OM, had inherited “only” in camera. It is also interesting to go back to the analysis carried out by JMA, three days after the incidents at Nice-Marseille on August 22.

I am one of the people who thinks that the only possible sanction to curb this state of affairs, whether at the level of players, managers, supporters, is the point penalty. It’s the only one that’s really scary. ”

Will the scale necessarily have to be that of the summer despite the escalation of violence in L1 since the resumption, or can a new case law sanction OL? Pablo Longoria had the merit of not entering this game on Sunday. Fortunately, one would be tempted to say, in view of this crash night in Ligue 1. The president of OM confirmed in 4 minutes of interview, in the auditorium of the Parc OL, that he could be concise and measured: “The club’s position was clear during this dark evening: respect the referee’s decision. All of French football must reflect on these questions about the future of football. We have a championship whose level has risen this season. We must ask ourselves the right questions to get out of this dynamic which is going beyond the limits and which is starting to be very dangerous. You can feel him coming live from 8 am to 11 pm to tell you this Monday about the 217 post-OL-OM rebounds / reactions?
