English and Russian fans fight in Marseille

Recommended Posts

Arrived in Lille today. The pub that was attacked was right next to the station, which we arrived at 25 minutes later. Big police presence at that point but not sure about beforehand. Very edgy out here.

Not trying to goad them but just catch them in the act. Like I said, the Russians feel the press coverage is unfair so they're trying to "balance it out".

One of them is the deputy editor in chief of one of Russia' biggest sports dailies, Sport Express (http://www.sport-express.ru/)

@dmitriy_f1re is his Twitter.

Interesting video but not much compared to what has happened in other places. Basically England fans get penned in by riot police and then tear gassed.

Sounds like the English and local French were singing together and the police just come along and tear-gassed the lot of them.

English, Welsh and French but this is exactly what happened where I was.

Been in Paris all day and got back to Lille about 10.30. Was in the centre for about 20 minutes as we just watched on as England and Wales fans sang with French locals. Nothing offensive, just that "don't take me home" song. Next thing you know 100 odd riot police line up and start letting off those flash bang things, firing year gas and charging.

We were a safe distance away but headed the opposite direction down a side street and you could see up another road the same happening. I can't comment on what led to it happening up there but it seems to me like the police were causing most of the problems.

It was a nervy walk back to the hotel. Random groups of 40 odd lads (have no idea of nationality) ran past us a couple of times which isn't a great experience when you hear them coming with the stories about the Russians last week.

Ah well, all safe and sound now. We go again tomorrow. Heading to the nearby town of Arass after the game, which a mate says is a cracking atmosphere.

I'm all for hooligans fighting, so long as no innocent bystanders get hurt.

Bit of nationalism is good, be proud of the homeland and the history. Have a bit of a scuffle, it's good for toughening you up.

This hurt my feelings and I will now lay down and cry because of the pain you inflicted. Reported to the police.
