Why do you think pete? The English ran riot throughout the 80s and 90s, it would have been the same at world cup 94 just like it was in 90 and 98.

The US not qualifying for the English Olympics might be a good thing...we need to wake up!

But i don't think any racist hooligan stuff would get too far here with the number of well-equipped police not to mention the racial diversity and unacceptableness of racism for the majority.

Two wrongs dont make a right Paul. Dont forget that there will be Irish fans there too and all we want is to have fun and sing songs with our fellow nations fans(Italy, Spain and Croatia). If there is any trouble and it comes our way then we wont be afraid to stand up to these trouble making fools. They dont call us the fighting Irish for nothing.

I hope there is no trouble at all and the tournament is a success and we can all go home happy and unhurt physically.

The Poles will cause trouble, theres not a doubt in my mind. So it is either be attacked, fight back or don't go.

I will stand my ground if I do go. I am not letting a few fools ruin my trip to see my great nation play.
