The England equivalent of the Green Brigade is the brass band that goes to every game, you know those guys that play "The Great Escape" theme EVERY 5 FUCKING MINUTES.

The English band are amongst the worst set of fans I've ever heard of. Just complete mongs from top to bottom, all they should do is play the intro tune and leave it to the English support (and especially away from home the English fans don't need anyone telling them when to sing) but more often than not they drown out potential songs by just playing the same shit everytime. I remember them moaning when they had their instruments being confiscated in the Euros in Ukraine...and no-one but them giving a shit

People who actually think they're cool are the ones who ensure the English atmosphere is as dull and pathetic as it is.

English fans at Wembley are wank, the stadium itself is pretty shite for atmosphere in terms of layout (bottom and top tier can barely keep in tune so you very rarely get the whole support singing the same song unless its after a goal) but the people who go to england games these days are the face painted, happy clapping middle class dullards who are there to sit in silence, buy a programme, have a pastie at half time and moan when things turn shit.

Then again, the pricing makes it impossible to cater to fans who will actually make an atmosphere. Not many working class folk will pay 40 weekly to watch their team on top of train fares, money for alchohol etc.

what's pretty sad is that back in the 70s and 80s the English fans in general were so passionate and mesmerising the Germans, Eastern Europeans and other countries began learning from them and forging these hardcore groups who'd constantly make a racket. In the same timeframe as these countries have grown in freedom, England has handicapped their fans to embarassing levels: you stand you can be chucked out of the ground, you get into some dispute and CCTV can ensure you get a banning order, the prices mean you're often surrounded by people there to watch the game and nothing more...its just impossible for them to match the Greeks, Croatians and other countries who aren't hindererd by stewards, police or the clubs in general.

Never try to understand the thought process of Club Executives and FA officials Redead, it'll just hurt your brain.

I mean this is the same system which says everyone in the ground can stand in front of their seat during half time, but the minute they kick off for the second half it becomes an unsafe practice.

This is the same system that imposes a 3 season limit for a club in the Premier League/Championship to covert their terrace into a seated stand, however if they were to be relegated to League 1 these sanctions would never pass and the terrace would be free for use. Again, apparently League 1 fans and below aren't worth saving.

This is the same system that continually preach how unsafe standing is...without having any documented proof of anyone ever being harmed simply by standing. Its the same way the likes of Man Utd and Aston Villa have fought off plans to close parts of their ground where persistant standing is common, because no Court in England would permit such a punishment because the Safety Council would have no evidence to suggest it would be a fitting punishment.

The media are also to blame since they seem to be incapable of separating safe standing from 'terraces'. Its not a fecking terrace you uneducated and lazy bastards!!

Hillsbrough is also the worst example for not allowing safe standing btw. Standing didn't cause that tragedy, hell the Taylor Report which is what led to all seater stadiums in the wake of Hillsbrough even says this. Piss poor policing and ill-designed stadiums enclosed with fences led to that disaster, and it was something that was bound to happen before anything changed.
