    Did u watch this?

    Fucking sad really that they take such pride in this sort of thing.
    Interesting to see that top guy saying that Putin will make it very hard for them in 2018, but there's still loads of the weirdos meeting up and fighting in the woods in preparation, and it does seem that the violence in France was state sponsored to some extent.

    It seems there's a big difference between the beasts that were stamping on unconscious people in France and the scrawny kids fighting in the woods.

    One things for sure, I'll be giving Russia 2018 a swerve nonetheless.

    Ye I did watch it. What these Russians don't seem to realise is that they were attacking normal fans (by and large). Between 3 and 6000 England fans were on travel bans. It was like taking candy from a baby from their point of view.

    Interesting that they don't try that shit here when their clubs come over. I diddnt hear a peep at Wembley.

    Pwapa nawty. They do seem to take themselves very seriously. A bit like the Spammers as that is the only they were any good at.

    A lot of them just came across as pathetic really, the youngster who was being interviewed driving to the woods when questioned about having any mates who weren't into fighting, he replied 'what use are friends if they can't fight and handle themselves?'
    What a fucking prat.

    When i was that age i was only interested in drinking, drugs, and trying to trick girls into sleeping with me...that was it, and it was amazing.
    Where the fun in getting smeared with vaseline and fighting in the woods?

    Exactly.

    It made me laugh when one of their boys (who was a boxer that wasn't there, supposedly) said that when he saw it all unfolding on TV that he assumed, given not only the organised manner of the destruction but also the fact that they (the Russians) were massively outnumbered, they were special forces. Totally ignoring the glaringly obvious fact that the fans they were targeting were, for the most part, normal fans who could probably count on one hand how many fights they've been in in their whole lives, you know, the hundreds of them that were running away.

    Let the twats have that as some badge of honour if they choose. They obviously don't know the meaning of the word.

    They were paramilitary and even Serbian nationalists from what I understand, certainly out on the streets anyway. I'd imagine the Spetsnaz have slightly more pressing conflicts to attend to.

    Haha. Russia. Guess they're just asking for it to be taken away at this point? If this actually happens, combined with all the racial issues, and the other political stuff, I can see Infanntino stripping it. Can England take it on such short notice?

    It looks like you'll be able to see the pitch OK, it's just going to produce a very strange atmosphere as the noise will escape from the stadium at both ends. I don't know how safe I'd feel sitting in that stand either.

    I wonder if the temporary seating is "state of the art" and no at all scaffolding on breeze blocks

    If only they thought about giving the world cup to a country that already has the required number of 35,000 seater stadiums :rolleyes:
