Russia will be supporting England!
« on: July 10, 2018, 10:19:07 AM »
Just to report from Russia that according to the Press here Croatia have seriously lost favour for complex political reasons I won't bore you with.They all want England here.No fear walking around in an England shirt though I still like my Fulham one better and would even suggest that the World Cup has been over hyped in comparison with the recent achievement of Fulham in my personal opinion!Who cares who wins the Final.

Some of the Croatian players have made pro Ukraine statements on twitter. So the Russians will definitely be supporting England.

How about in the case of a France v England final? Russians tend to be Francophile

England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 have nothing to fear. Just carry on playing without fear, and keep to good habits.
Croatia are running their mouths because they are frightened of us, and so they should be.
As long as we do our best.
They are calling us Islanders, but compared to them, we are a great football nation, I don’t ever remember them ever winning a World Cup.
We just have to ensure we keep Moderic quiet.

Your right England is not an Island, but we may as well be.

Judging by the press today(11th July) Russia will not be supporting anyone.Now they have been knocked out interest has severely waned and they could not care less who wins.Good news for any England fans who want to come over for the final (we will get there) is that tickets should be plentiful.

I think it boils down to Serbia is historically pro-Russian, therefore Croatia is historically anti-Russian. One of us Fulham in Brighton is half and half so could tell us! The loyalties in that part of Europe were partly the reason for the First World War.

Good to have every bit of support available, if we can get the majority of the crowd behind us it could give us an edge.

Russianrob - how has Russia reacted to going out?  Gallant losers who are now heroes to some extent?  General lack of interest?

So pleased its almost all over barring that riduculous 3rd and 4th play off match in my City Petersburg.I don't think I would go to this match even if I were given a free ticket.The greatest game this year was played at Wembley and I was there."We are going up".Club before country for me!!!
