@football fans- it's true that there are more english fans, and generally they are the best in the matter of shere number. But compared with the population of the country I'd say Irish fans are no.1 and croatian fans no.2!

Irish dont beat the English - I count taking 1/20th of Portugals entire population to Euro 2004 as a hefty amount. Croatia are abismal. They couldnt even sell all thier tickets against England and we werent even aloud to by them of the Croatian FA. It meant I had to pay £70 for mine, twice the asking price and had to sit on my own. with my friends elsewhere in the stadium.

That's not true. Some problems occured due to the faulty bueraucracy, I know Croats who couldn't get the tickets too.

Croatia has a population of 4.5 millions, England over 50 million. But there weren't 10 times more english fans than croats, maybe 4 or 5 times.

well 250,000 on top of the fans which were situated in other parts of the country watching other nations, Im guessing there was easily 10 times as many fans. Crotian fans were colourful but thats all they were. Wolves take more fans on thier away travels.

P.S Some of your lot were really rude aswell - brought you drinks and they still insult your people, ... theres gratitude for you.

More Birmingham Canals.
