As Poland desperately tries to dispel fears of hooligan attacks, hooligans have issued a chilling warning to England fans planning to base themselves in Krakow during the Euro 2012 championship.
The thugs have been assembling a terrifying arsenal of guns, knives, swords and even tear gas working together in a network of gangs preparing to turn the event into a bloodbath.
"If the English or anyone else f**k with us they will f**king regret it," said one 28-year-old thug who identified himself only as Pawel in Wroclaw, Poland.
The burly shaved headed gang boss added:"We are prepared. We used to respect England fans, they inspired us.
"But not anymore - they've gone soft. Whenever we've had fights with them we've always won. And we'll win again. We are ready."
Polish police are so concerned they are training a squad of rooftop snipers who will be armed with baton round rubber bullets to take out gang leaders.
The warning comes as Polish police battle against an escalating wave of sickening hooligan violence that left six dead in eight months and dozens more fighting for their lives.
In the most brutal attack so far, one gang leader known as 'The man' was hacked to death by rivals from another soccer gang with machetes in broad daylight in front of terrified shoppers
"He was the second most import gang leader in Krakow but when they'd finished with him he was literally in pieces. Like something on a butcher's slab. I don't think your British fans have any idea how hard we play the game over here," Pawel laughed.
"Here in Poland we all co-operate. Different gangs get together to take on their enemies. But when the English fans get here we will all be their enemies.
"I do it because I like it. There's nothing like feeling a man's nose smash to pieces, English noses especially," he added.
In a chilling meeting on the Baltic coast called the Gdynia Agreement the heads of Poland's hooligan gangs agreed to fight together during international games - against foreigners.
"It was agreed at this meeting that even if they usually hate each other, during international matches we are united. Any problems with fans from other countries and we will act as one," says Pawel.
And during international matches the hooligans will be joined by a terrifying array of neo-Nazi groups.
One leader calling himself The Don from the extreme right-wing National Radical Camp said: "What we do isn't about football, it's about patriotism. We are defending our borders against sick foreigners. We don't like them and we don't want them."
Now police in Poland are working around the clock to train up enough elite anti-hooligan riot cops before the tournament.
Special squads have been set up in all major cities to seize and arrest known thugs.
"We are doing what we can to ensure Euro2012 is safe and violence-free," said police spokesman Mariusz Sokolowski.
"We have close cooperation with the police in Britain, Germany, Holland as well as other countries. In Britain we have a Polish liaison officer working closely with detectives there.
"In every country there are lists of hooligans including Polish ones who have gone to live abroad and who are prohibited from entering our stadiums."
Special ops forces will also be deployed undercover to mingle with fans in the city streets and public areas will be covered by marksmen on roofs with plastic bullets.
The country's Justice Ministry also has announced plans to electronically tag all convicted hooligans to stop them going anywhere near any of the Euro stadiums in the host cities of Warsaw, Gdansk, Wroclaw and Poznan.
