      Good to see the English and Russian fans getting along. This guy even gives his chair up.

      Bless.

      So, fellow English, who fancies going to the 2018 World Cup in Russia?

      Think I'll swerve it.

      Hopefully World War 3 against Russia would have started by then. That way we'd be guaranteed less violence.

      Two England fans apparently fighting for their lives and Marseille is a war zone by all accounts. Russian football is renowned for this though and the f*****g idiotic decision to give them the World Cup is simply a train wreck waiting to happen.

      Wonder where Magnamillionaire is now after branding England fans with terms I won't repeat. More and more reports coming out how England fans have been victims for days and French police answer is to just tear gas them all and blame England.

      In fairness, we also have reports of England fans involved in incidents.

      Let's wait till the facts emerge. Understandably you feel England fans are being unfairly blamed and it isn't them acting as aggressors. 

      However, as with many incidents like this the truth is likely a shade of grey.

      Let's not pretend that England fans have been hunted like innocent lambs. After all Iain MacIntosh was reporting an England fan dropped kick a man off a moped.

      Ultimately we should all be able to go the football and not be fear of our lives. But clearly there is a perception abroad of England fans which perhaps attracts violence from other fans,  even if it isn't the average England fan there is a minority looking for a scrap.

      Because Scotland, Wales and Republic of Ireland all seem to travel in huge numbers and don't seem to involved in any violence. In fact Scotland and Ireland are frequently congratulated on being so well behaved despite a love of booze and partying.

      Something doesn't feel right to me this isn't normal violence associated with football, clashes happen but they generally come and go fairly quickly, this is prolonged and sustained violence.

      My impression is that minority of England goaded into scuffles by locals.

      Police started to react for forcefully.

      Russians fans start arriving in numbers and hearing of scuffles think England fans must be up for a bit. Or Russian fans always intended to have a knock about anyway.

      Throughout of all this you have the few on both sides who always look for a fight.

      A little bit more than the Sevilla and Liverpool fans were separated by at the start of the Europa League final.  There was one female steward separating about 30 rows of supporters.

      Gut feeling is that they are focussing all their security attention on what gets into the ground and then once they're in completely forgetting about the fact that people have weapons at the end of their arms.

      Can someone who has actually been to Marseille please explain why the city itself is seemingly adding to violence.

      Keep seeing people saying 'Russia vs Germany in Marseille, bound to happen' and the like.

      I know Naples is meant to be a bit rough? Is it just a rough place or something else?

      Collymore recording in the town centre. Said loads of locals all got grouped together, a few whistled and then legged it up a street. There's a reporter who said loads of Russian hooligans flew to Switzerland and hired cars to France so they weren't detected by security officials.

      Police were about 400 yards away and launched gas canisters into random places and did f**k all else.

      Marseille Violence: City 'Like A Battlefield'

      Witnesses describe gangs looking for English fans to attack, with tear gas fired and bottles thrown as violence flares once more.

      The scene in the French city of Marseille has been described as being "like a battlefield", after England fans clashed with Russian supporters on the streets.

      French police fired tear gas and used water cannon on fans on a third day of unrest in the lead up to the Three Lions' first game of Euro 2016.

      The match ended with a 1-1 draw at Marseille's Stade Veledrome.

      Sky's Sports Correspondent Paul Kelso said a gang of what appeared to be Russian supporters stormed into the old port area of the city, looking for English fans to attack in the hours before kick-off.

      He said: "A gang of what appears to be Russian supporters, hooligans, very well organised, stormed into the old port area and looked for English fans to attack.

      "Bottles being hurled at England fans and what appears to be a lack of containment. Lots of injuries. Head injuries. Some nasty cuts and the police, whatever tactics they tried to employ, clearly hasn't worked.

      "For the second time in more than 18 years, Marseille looks more like a battlefield."

      At least five people have been wounded in the violence, with six people arrested.

      TV footage showed fans throwing chairs taken from restaurant terraces and fighting on a stairway, where one man was seen kicking another down the stairs.

      Sky's Siobhan Robbins said she saw 300 youths storm down a street in the same part of the city.

      Robbins said she had been told they were local French youths.

      She said: "We saw chairs being thrown, we saw bottles being thrown, tables being thrown.

      The police are pathetic, they're only arsed when it concerns the English.

      Went to Marseille in the 80's, the place was a hovel back then, drugs, prostitution and the gateway to North Africa with it's large ethnic minority to boot.

      It's the armpit of Europe.

      Big believer that you attract problems
      A minority of English followers are hell bent on violence or put themselves in a situation where they will be part of it.
      Embarrassing behavior once again.
      Don't care if you are 'goaded' by Russian or local French gangs.
      The issue is that you put yourselves in that situation

      The ever reputable Barney Ronay from The Guardian tweeting that hundreds and hundreds of fans m have been left to make their own way back to the hotel and accommodation and are wandering aimlessly around Marseille. Little kids in replica shirts in tears in the middle of the night.

      The lack of protection and security for these supporters seems to be appalling. Miserable failure by UEFA and the French authorities who you'd expect better of considering the terrorist attacks that have blighted that nation.
