To be fair it wasn't JUST the English media - the French, Dutch and German media's played it up a bit as well.
UEFA did a good job of giving off a negative perspective as well by handing out fines to all and sundry.
I must admit though, spoke to a few mates who were over there and they said it was the best tournament they've all been to - no trouble at all and
plenty of drinks and laughs.
I think it might have been different if England had played Russia or Poland - there is quite a bit of history between England and Russia and there's
always potential with Poland.
