‘Fans, please behave’


It is unfortunate that English football fans are intent on fomenting trouble wherever they go (‘Sport’ – “Bale, brawl fears stalk England in Lens”, June 16). The example of what happened when clashes took place between fans during England’s draw with Russia in Marseille does not augur well for the so-called gentlemanly English culture. The chaotic scenes in Lille, France, during which dozens of people were arrested and 16 were taken to hospital is another instance. There is now a danger of English football fans becoming synonymous with rowdyism.
