    Why are the English so prone to be such douchebags?

    I'd feel more inclined to respond, were the question phrased in Arabic, if you don't mind.

    It really is very embarrassing. One can only apologise.

    Its a lack of cultural identity. The English have simply lost their Englishness. They were once lauded as the purveyors of manners and fair play now they are naught but a nation of lager louts. They are also incredibly class conscious and have none of the egalitarian sensibilities of the Irish and Scots. This class consciousness is perpetrated through archaic institutions like the BBC who portray the working class as churls and think everyone lives in a quaint village with Miss Marples and the Vicar as neighbours.

    All news articles i've read suggest that the English were Provoked. Reaction not withstanding, i do feel a bit of sympathy for England in this matter. Is there any team that wouldn't send a few guys over to bait them? Spain, maybe?

    Yeah, the president of the fans association said they were provoked. I
    wonder if that provocation was one of them being knifed, or perhaps a
    dozen Russians charged towards them with bats and chains. Or... was
    it the way someone stared at them?

    Mind you, everybody is provoked among football fans during competitions,
    but this inclination to get slammed and then go rioting, chanting and raising
    the hands like idiots, I've seen repeated all over the world with a systematic
    recurrence among the English.

    Chilling in a Greek seaside pub? The English tourists are the loud, drunken
    ones itching for a fight. Strolling through a lovely Spanish town? Yup, the
    English are the trashy ones making their menacing and alcohol reeking
    presence felt. Attending a football match? No probs, the English will be
    there to clash with the riot police.

    I mean, seriously, it's... destined to occur.

    ...and all Muslims are suicide bombers.

    I think there must be a self fulfilling prophecy when dealing with the English fans maybe.

    Also, i have a fiver on them to beat the Russians 😛

    Bad sides of Englishmen:
    - drink from early in the morning so they piss on my tulips and spring onion beds
    - they get drinky hunger so they still all pancakes
    - if speak Cockney, are not understandable

    Good sides:
    - when speak with pipe in their mouth
    - wearing tweed suits
    - wearing socks with sandals
    - politeness (when their age is +65).
