    Anyone considering going to follow Engerland?
    If so are you happy to be used as a hostage?

    If I'm going I won't be following England, I'd fancy seeing the latter stages of the tournament.

    It's going to be "tasty" for sure and I'm not sure who I would be more worried of, the fans, the police or the judicial system. Won't surprise me if England's fans are banned in retaliation for some of yesterday's moves anyway.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Russia thing escalates, and the England Team are withdrawn from the competition.

    Irrespective of the current diplomatic squabbles, it would be crazy to go. They're mad, all mad over there and there will be scores to settle after the Euros.

    They could not ban England fans without breaking FIFA rules.

    I recon there would be decent support around europe for pulling out & playing another competition instead.

    But nobody will have the balls to push for it, in case it lost them votes.

    As everyone needs a visa it would be pretty easy to introduce hurdles you can't overcome, without an outright ban
