Whenever England fans travel abroad, whether to support their national team or the club they support, they are targeted by other fans who want to have
'a go' at England.
English hooligans are perceived as the top mob and as such everyone wants a pop.
What most foreigners just don't grasp is that the vast majority of English fans just want to watch the football and have a good time, but of course
are well prepared to defend themselves.
True English football hooligans do not wear colours and only want to fight with other hooligans.
Foreign football hooligans will fight with any fans.
I would say that if not all thenthe vast majority of English fans going to South Africa will solely be interested in the football and experiencing
South Africa and the whole World Cup experience etc.
Domestically, unfortunately it will be the dings who think that expressing their patriotism limits itself to wearing an England top, 'supporting'
England, getting drunk and creating a nuisance of themselves after the game.
And these people will do that regardless of whether they have an England top on or not.
They are idiots and not representative at all!
