It may be a crass generalisation but England fans in general seem more moronic than club fans. I’d happily have a chat with an opposition supporter before a game and wish them well for the season afterwards, however that seems beyond the capabilities of England fans.
Drinking, singing, a bit of revelry is fine – throwing other people’s property in the canals, soaking tourists and locals in beer. If there wasn’t a game on, would there be any sort of tolerance of this? It’s dim-witted.
Seeing England fans head to Wembley seems to be down to three demographics for me – kids with dads, 40-50 year old fat men and an ever decreasing group of spotty, skinny late teen/early twenties Stone Island clad ‘lads’. You just don’t see the generation that grew up on Fantasy Football and got hooked on England at Euro ’96 at games anymore. Who can blame them when the good humour that surrounded England has been replaced by the yobbish behaviour, '10 German bombers' songs and slurs against Muslims seen in Amsterdam?
Just a bit of high jinx, mainly lads in their early twenties on their first trip abroad .
No different to what happens in the summer months in magaluf, sunny beach etc ..
I'm not saying it's right by the way , been there and done it .
