Recommended Posts

Footage of a bear performing in front of fans before a Russian league match has been condemned as "shocking and inhumane" by animal welfare groups.

The poor bear!! I really dislike Russia!

This World Cup is going to be remembered for all the wrong reasons and there's going to be so much fighting!

I don't think there will be much fighting.

Putin sent his thugs to the Euros to show what will happen if anyone wants trouble.

I would like to see the stats after as I reckon nowhere near the number of foreign fans attend that normally would at a World Cup.

I know for a fact, that I wouldn't go there. But i'd not really go to any world cup or other competition to watch England, I'd rather just watch it in a pub at home.

I'd go to Russia to see St Petersburg or The Kremlin. That is about it really.

been there. Done a tour of the Winter Palace then we were supposed to go into Lenin's tomb in Red Square but the queue was so long we didn't bother. I bought these babushka dolls for my mum in a large store and was given (this is 100% genuine btw) my change in silver foil wrapped chocolate coins.   Mind you this was 48 years ago and it was a school trip......:flashing-lol:

Just an ordinary High/Secondary school mate. It was a Baltic cruise and it also went to Visby & Copenhagen.

The only trip I ever went on at school was a journey to Wembley arena to see the Harlem Globetrotters.

It was crap! Then some idiot decided to steal a load of porno mags and sweets from the service station on the way home. The whole coach was held responsible and we were barred from any further trips.

Just as well really as my Mother couldn't afford them if truth be told.

Lucky guy, that's an amazing school trip. 

I'd love to visit Red square.
