    Is this no real change from how you normally watch games, or no real change from how you are day to day?

    The fact that Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic have made it just makes it harder, it's like finding out how unpopular you are because your mates all scored an invite to a party and you didn't.
    To be fair Scotland have gotten less humilating. Remember the World Cup qualification where they were the first European team eliminated? Before Faroe Islands, San Marino, Luxembourg etc.

    I'ds like to say both, but I do work some nights so I can't really drink every day, but lets just say weekends.

    Decided I should watch this..two reasons..

    My dad would have watched it end to end to the major annoyance of my mum who hated anything to do with sport. He was your typical England supporter, forever optimistic,but realistic about England s chances,just loved the game really. So I shall watch in his memory.
    And second.. One of the guys I work for is off to see some games and I will get a running commentary at work when he gets back/ or has watched them on tv..
    As I have Welsh blood in me I shall be supporting Wales and England .. Might regret this decision cos I know very little next to you guys,but hey..could learn something new..

    Went here yesterday to watch the Eng-Rus game, such a good atmosphere. They're showing all the games for free on that big screen and it's not even that crowded. Love Vienna.

    Yep. Apparently they placed a last minute ban on alcohol because of what's going on in Marseille, so flibjibb is literally correct with his statement.

    Surrender monkeys are the French though.

    The Rathaus is such an awesone area of town.

    BBC has quotes from various Russian news outlets excusing their fans for the violence.

    Popular Russian news website Gazeta.ru called the result "Russia's miraculous rescue". However, the main headline was: "These people are not fans. They came to fight" which, according to the site, was "provoked by English fans".

    "Such behaviour is typical of English fans," a correspondent for state-owned channel Rossiya 24 said. Gazprom-owned NTV built on that idea further, saying that it was "no accident that both 'football' and 'hooligan' are English words".

    Venerable Russian sports news site Sovetsky Sport said: "What to do on a Saturday morning? Drink beer, get a tan, then go and fight with police, throw chairs and glass bottles. What could be better for English fans?"

    Pro-Kremlin news portal Life.ru was almost jubilant in its coverage of the fighting at Marseille port during the day, noting that it "began with many provocations by the English fans" and "ended with the latter making a cowardly retreat from the field of battle".

    Curiously, Russian sports news portal Sport Express reported that the Marseille port brawl had involved only "England fans and local Arabs" with no Russian presence.
    Moscow daily free newspaper Vechernyaya Moskva, in an article headlined "No-holds-barred fighting at the Velodrome", noted that fans exchanged insults throughout the match, while at full-time "around 30 Russian fans broke into the English sector and started a fight… Yes, of course, the English are to blame. Why did they shout insults at Russia, Putin and, for some reason, Sharapova? And ours, you could say, answered them."
    I'm thinking this is probably the dregs of the Russian media but if anything but, there is a serious problem with the footballing culture in the country. Even the worst nationalist rags here will condemn violence.
