    England's support in the latter stages of the world cup...

    First WC I can recall where we have been so hugely outnumbered, last game a great effort for the England fans but only around 3k in the stadium. Compare that with Japan / South Korea which was a lot longer trip

    Will our numbers swell for Saturday, or it just too hard to get tickets, visa etc at short notice? Samara is also some 1000km from Moscow, a flight there is around £1500 return from the UK

      I would imagine there are a whole load of reasons why there is a significant reduction in numbers of England fans attending. Namely, the England performances in recent tournaments have been dire, the team selected has hardly filled anyone with confidence, the perceived threat of violence to England fans (after France Euros), Russia has hardly been considered the most welcoming of countries, and finally, the cost of it all. Take your pick.

      i have half a dozen mates who are members of the official free lions supporters club , they have been to the last 3 world cups , they were put off primarily by the bad press and perceived threat of violence , nothing else , it's once every 4 years and football lovers save their pennies for events like this .........there was also a bit of jiggery pokery with visas being granted then withdrawn then granted again only a few days prior to booked travel dates but the media beat up was the main deterrent.
      FLOUNDERING...!!!

      IF we make it to the final, would you buy a half and half scarf if it were Brazil?

      Seems it takes 72 hours to get a Russia visa so little if any time, think JCL's will be few and far between for this one
