Legia�� Warszawa��-FC Sheriff ★And 35000€ fine goes to...★������

The banner, which depicts a red-eyed pig greedily clutching Legia's balls, was unveiled ahead of Warsaw's Europa League play-off game against Sheriff Tiraspol. A separate banner underneath the Euro-covered pig read: "And the 35,000 fine goes to..."

The first-leg match finished 1-1, with Legia travelling to Sheriff next week, in a bid to reach the Europa League group stage.  Legia were originally fined due to fans displaying a banner, which was the width of an entire stand, during a Champions League qualifier against Kazakh team Astana. The banner marked the Warsaw Uprising of 1944, when Polish resistance fighters captured large parts of the capital city but were eventually crushed by occupying German forces. It's expected that Legia will see some sort of retrospective action taken by UEFA following this second, but none has been taken as yet.  Perhaps we will see a third if they do face another punishment.

10 Bloodiest Battles of World War II

10. Battle of Monte Cassino, 17 January–18 May 1944: 185,000 casualtiesWaged between the Allies and the joint German and Italian troops in the early part of 1944, the Battle of Monte Cassino was one of the hardest fought battles of the Second World War. The main objective for the Allied forces fighting their way up from Southern Italy was to break through the Germans’ Gustav Line — a series of military fortifications running across Italy — and gain control of Rome. Named after the 1,400-year-old monastery of Monte Cassino that stood at the center of the German defensive line (and which was controversially destroyed by American bombers during the battle), the fighting was made up of four smaller battles that took place in January, February, March and May, respectively. The eventual capture of Rome came at a high price, with at least 125,000 casualties on all sides — and as many as 185,000 by some estimates.
