I'll definitely be glued to the TV. To be honest this is one of the better Euros in recent times. I think it's too hard to make an educated guess so I'm just going to go with some personal favourites. Of course you'd be stupid to discount Germany but I think the "outsiders" are England, Portugal and Poland.
[spoiler]I have a funny feeling if Portugal don't get too many injuries or suspensions they might surprise a lot of people. Really like the two fullbacks in Coentrao and Pereira when they work with Ronaldo and Nani on the wings... and in the middle they have some great central defenders along with holding players. I just hope they give Oliveira a go to lead the line instead of Almeida who I don't rate at all or Postiga who if I remember correctly when he was at Sp*rs he... sucked... to put it lightly, anyway [/spoiler]
My expectations are quite high. I feel that the German squad is the best we've had in many years but that obviously doesn't mean it'll be a cakewalk.
I think Portugal will be a first round exit with Netherlands and Germany advancing to the next round...but we'll see. I'm pretty pumped.
i need to bet my results for the first round.
a weekly news paper here in austria makes again their "wuchtl wette" which is some slang for football betting

On paper Ireland are in the 'Group of death' and aren't expected to progress. But seemingly Italy aren't in a perfect mindset with the match fixing scandles rife in their camp to the point where the Italian Prime Minister has talked about suspending their domestic league for 3 years.
If we could pull good results out of the Croatia & Italian matches there's a chance as the Spanish match is probably a foregone conclusion.
Spain are still the strongest team in Europe - even without Villa or Torres on form, and are my tip to lift the cup again.
Happy days so far with: Kayzer, Snufkino, matchpoint, SG1
