Football racism and hooliganism, the "European disease"

Excellent article in today’s Guardian by Simon Jordan, praising the efforts of English football in stamping out racism and hooliganism.

What was always considered the "English disease" appears to now be more a European one. I don't recall seeing swastikas at Highbury, or hearing monkey chants, en masse, directed at black players. As usual though, these things are forever associated with our island, and Uefa seem to think the problem in Europe isn't that bad. Surprise.
