Also seen the images of fighting 'supporters' in Marseille? A real shame! Not so long ago, my sister and I also were in Marseille, strode along the Quai des Belges at the old harbour. Never felt unsafe, not even at Friday or Saturday night. When in the UK, the streets around pubs are crowded with young men and women who drink themselves half dead. Even at the best of hotels, you'd hear them brawl and shout up to the early morning. Not so in Marseille.
But this weekend it will certainly have been something else. Football, a feast? What fun is there in fighting with other supporters, throwing bottles and bricks to the police?
I think the soccer union should ban all those countries whose supporters cause problems. Russia and England: OUT!
