Well worth a watch but a bit f*cking intense, interesting insight into the mentality, disturbing.

Wouldn't recommend going to the World Cup.

Went to Moscow in 07 with England . Russians like picking off small groups but don't like it when its even numbers . Also having gum shields is cheating IMO

Hurray! You know there’s an international tournament coming up when the BBC do their “There will be blood” documentary. They’re usually one grade up from a Danny Dyer effort – here we interview a bloke in a ski mask telling us about the time they did unmentionable things to their rivals, destroyed a police station using only bare fists, fight with samurai swords, Surface to air missile launchers and are currently working on a nuclear arms program. That said, I wouldn’t fancy Russia 2018 for all sorts of reasons.

Spent 5 days in St Petersburg a few years ago and despite apparently having a reputation as the megalolz, Funboy 3 city of Russia, we genuinely only noticed 3-4 people smiling during the whole of our stay. Met a couple of lovely blokes on our final evening, which slightly redeemed the situation, but it made London seem like the friendliest city in the world. A very grand city, and I’m glad I went, but it didn’t leave me longing to return to Russia. Probably my loss, but everyone I asked at home about whether to bother travelling across to Moscow, said not to bother; amazing metro system, but that seemed to be the only thing they were enthusiastic about. On the police front – met a couple of ex-pats in St Petersburg and they said if there were muggers on one side of the street and old Bill on the other, they’d take their chances with the muggers – good times!

Personally, I hope Russia and Qatar are huge flops in terms of visiting numbers – you can make a strong argument for Russia hosting a WC, but not under Putin and current circumstances, whereas Qatar is obviously just a fu cking joke (wonder what the BBC “Hoolie” doco will be like for that?)

I won't be going to Russia for one reason only. It's a third world shit house. And to think they want to invade/seize Ukraine??? That's a 13th century place.

Did anyone think it was all so very homo erotic the way they behaved. And the bit in the sauna???? And they drink herbal tea .

The whole thing is massively homo-erotic. A big bunch of Muscle Mary's rolling around in the Woods. I suspect everyone would be a lot happier if they packed in the fighting and took to dancing to Hi-NRG Disco in crop tops and hot pants.

They just look completely ridiculous, gum shields, hand wraps and with a penchant for kicking people. And at the end of it you might win a "Firm" tattoo for your troubles. It's like something out of an under budget 1980s Jean Claude Van Damme movie.

Even the Russian Hooligans are dope cheats
I mean you average hooligan here loves a bit of knock off Stone island , CP company
loves about 5 pints and a gram of cut up Bolivian marching powder , they are all out of shape that even I look like arnie in comparison
meanwhile the Russians are fitness fanatic body builders , with strict military training
its blatant cheating

Russia does have a bit of an image problem these days. I wonder if there is a cuddly, fun, likeable Russian person somewhere they could get on TV here (the Russian Graham Norton or, um, Jurgen Klopp) so we could get over the strong impression that their vast nation is made up of miserable, alcoholic, rascist, homophobic thugs.

An acquaintance of mine studied Russian at Uni (because she loves Tolstoy, basically) and lived in St.Peterburg for a year. She was once on a bus chatting in Russian with a mixed group of students and Russians, when an elderly woman asked if is she was Russian. My friend replied that she was, and the woman said she could tell she wasn't Russian, because she was smiling and seemed so happy.

Couldn't agree more with the last sentence. I'm usually the last person to tar a whole group of people with the same brush, but a holiday in Egypt was a real eye-opener for me with the behaviour of the many Russian visitors without exception.

An utterly glorious tv moment.

Two groups of men standing far apart the cries of 'come on then!!!', 'no!, YOU come on then', leafing us to believe that we were about to witness a fight to the death that would need censoring to protect our fragile minds from the horror.

When one brave young warrior - fresh from telling us about us amazing new patented moves - was coaxed into engaging the deathsquad facing him, the entire spectacle dissolved into 2 minutes of synchronised hugging on the ground.

When for one terrifying split second it appeared that a punch would be thrown, the fight was called off. As the chief hitman assured us, we wouldn't want anybody to get hurt.

The highlight of the piece was the devastated young lad being consoled by his fellow spetsnaz graduates after his gum shield fell out.

For anybody heading to Russia, forget the rules of engagement at your peril. No touching of the hair or face. Nothing below the belt, strictly no punches and if a gum shield falls out, you stop IMMEDIATELY.

Safe travels.

In Goa they like the English and absolutely hate the Russians which considering the reputation of the English abroad plus our past relationship with India (OK I know Goa was a Portuguese colony) is interesting.

Watching them running round Marseille in their bum bags, Seb Coe shorts, muscle vests and bandanas stroking each other’s chests and biceps in scenes straight out of Venice Beach in 1985, it seemed to me that the methods we’d relied on – strength in numbers, strength in continental lager, sheer stupidity and sheep like behaviour – these were outdated. Adapt or die. Move on or move off. Innovate or don’t and wait and see what happens.

Chatting with other people from the football violence scene, it was obvious that we needed to respond; we couldn’t let this go unanswered. Our reputation was at stake. So, we got down to Sports direct, got ourselves kitted out in some Lonsdale muscle vests which we cut down to crop tops, lightweight running shorts and cleaned WH Smith at Terminal 5 out of bum bags. We set about lifting weights, chugging whey protein shakes, watching cage fighting on Youtube and rolling round on the floor with each other, practising Judo moves and wearing boxing boots. And following Dave Brailsford’s philosophy of Marginal gains, we even started doing fake tans.

Down at Fulham, a lot of blokes started complimenting me on my physique, personal grooming and my tie-dye weightlifting trousers; so one by one, I got them down to the gym as guests on my membership, and slowly things began to snowball until some of our boys were benching 100kg. We were ready.

We’re fighting fire with fire. This is my lot on their way to Blues the other week – absolutely taking the pi ss outside the Irish Centre in Digbeth. We are ready for Russia.

I thought this was a very well produced documentary and not the usual sensationalist and stereotyping of hooligans.
England fans attacked in Marseille spoke of a "military operation", they were attacked by a very organised group who then left the city almost unnoticed.
The fact these men are modelling themselves on Putin - a show of strength, masculinity and national pride - brushing away the former image of your typical Russian drinking vodka from the bottle in a furry hut makes them pretty formidable.
Having organised mass brawls in forests to see who is ready for selection into their gangs was scary stuff.

Wish I could be like David Watts

Went there too.

I remember the (Russian on Russian) skirmishes in the centre before the game.

One of our lot found a white stretch limo to take the 5 of us to the game for a bout £20 and it was surreal cruising up to the ring of army trucks outside the ground.

I had a ticket in the Russian end (all I'd been able to buy on the street) but there was no way I was going in there. Ended smuggling myself into the England end with all the other latecomers - they just let a whole crowd of us in randomly. Great security...

On the way back we'd all lost our England supporters coach tickets so we chanced it in the tubes. The army kept us separate from the Russians who spent the journey trying to smash their way into out carriages through the joining doors.

We are allowed to get off first but set off on the wrong direction so had to walk through a square of moody looking f>kcers twice...

Go back to the hotel OK, went out again and came back to see the Russians had tried to strong the England supporters hotel.

We'd been oblivious to that having gone to the Georgian Hut to try to catch the Georgia Scotland game as the game was on TV. But the TV was bust.

However the manageress did end up taking us to an...errrr....very interesting club over the road after closing time.

Mental trip, hairy at times.

The thing that doesn't get mentioned about Marseille, but should have been screamed from the rooftops, is that a competent police force could have easily prevented and dealt with the trouble. Unfortunately the French don't seem to be very well informed on successful tactics for policing large/volatile crowds, a major flaw when holding a major football tournament.

This reminds me of Vladimir Markin's statement during the Marseilles events...

'Top law enforcement official Vladimir Markin said the fans were "real men" and Europe had become too used to gay parades to recognise them as such.'
