It is quite common. For me, football supporters (especially in former Eastern Europe) are just bunch of stupid nationalist who have nothing to do but provoking.

It is almost impossible going to stadium to watch league football game in Slovakia. The priority for some (or majority of) fans is to fight with others not enjoying the game. It is dangerous at league games as well as at international club games (especially with teams from Hungary, Ukraine, Croatia, Russia, Romania and Serbia). Nevertheless, the game is not enjoyable at all, since Slovak football is deeply in underground. There was only one bright moment in our football - when we have accidentally knock-outed Italy from football WC2010

The game HUN-ROU has already been played (2-2). Unfortunately because of a prior antisemitistic incident the game was played behind closed doors, so Romanian fans did not come to Budapest at all.

Yes, I forgot about that. I didn't watch it, ain't that big of a RO football fan. Actually I don't support any RO teams except my local one, that's playing now in the 4th league, the other ones, starting with the "mighty" star of Bucharest can go to hell .

I spoke on the phone with a friend of mine who works as a policeman and was assigned to go by train to Bucharest together with the Hungarian football fans. I spoke with him about 30 minutes before they reached Bucharest and he told me that during the train trip they were "best friends". The fans drank a lot, some got drunk, but weren't aggresive.

This changed when they reached Bucharest railway station. I saw live on TV the mess they did there...

PS: I'm sure that if the match played in Budapest wouldn't have been without fans, the Romanian ones wouldn't have been much better than the Hungarian ones...

I had a British boss who used the multiple negation. I heard him saying once: "It's not that I don't disagree".

"It's not that I don't disagree" means "I disagree" anyway.

Yes, but I reconstructed its meaning just 10 minutes after that sentence was said
