The atmospheres at all the matches so far has been pretty good. It would appear that Netherlands, Germany, Russia, Spain, Croatia, Ireland and Sweden have the best traveling support inside the stadiums. The number of Swedish flags during their match against Ukraine was staggering.

Ireland has surprised me. For such a small country they had several thousands of fans for their match against Croatia. That match appeared to have pretty much all Irish and Croatian fans.

the country is alledgedly broke yet we can afford to head over to poland for a month

the only thing i dont like about the irish fans is that obnoxious chant they sing this past number of years , " you,l never beat the irish " , bar the blatant innacurracy , it comes across lame aswell as arrogant and we dont do arrogance well , never have

I dont think its arrogance because I think those people know that the likes of Spain and Germany would destroy us but I hate it too. I cant stand when it is sung. Its crap aswell.

I hate the anti-brit crap that comes out of most of their mouths too, right before they dawn their Man U jerseys.
