Come on Musket we are not talking about that which was celebrations gone OTT and of course in the decades that followed Scotland fans got repeated plaudits for good, friendly, if admittedly drunken behaviour. We are talking about people or their property getting attacked in their own homes or in the street etc because they display their national colours during televised tournaments. It could possibly happen in Scotland. I'm not suggesting that it is not a possibility. But it is no more likely to happen in Scotland than anywhere else and I can't remember any incidents like those I've posted above happening in Scotland during tournaments overseas! And the idea that if there was football related violence directed towards England supporters then it would be by SNP voters is silly and more than a wee bit ignorant to be quite truthful. There is plenty grumping at each other in the referendum between Scottish Unionists and Scottish Nats but any incidents of violence have been very, very rare and I know of none specifically directed towards English incomers. Sorry but the idea had to be brought to heel. We have our serious football trouble and it is called religious sectarianism. So we're no goody two shoes. Basically though it would be nice to have a thread relating to England without someone having an unnecessary pop at Scotland.
