  • The official Euro 2012 thread...





    Can't wait to see the first game on Friday, I will be rooting for Greece. I hope my Dutch team will be able to move beyond the Robben Bayern debacle and kick ass...

    I'm routing for mother russia and Ukraine at this point. They are my two teams because they really are underdogs.

        No Turkey, no care...

        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.

        Here are the 25-man squads for those interested:

        [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]

          I pulled Portugal in the sweepstake at work. If they can get through their group then they're in with a strong chance.

            I've got Portugal as well. Not feeling optimistic at all looking at that group.

              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 ain't going to be original, my fav are Spain & Germany. Honestly I don't have high expectations neither for France nor for the quality of the football that'll be play during this tournament.

                Italy & Portugal are going to get raped.

                  I dont think the build up in the U.K. has been as optimistic as I've seen in the past. Which is foolishly making me think we can slip through and actually do something. I'll never learn.

                      The Ireland Vs Spain match will set records in terms of Possession stats - I reckon Spain will have at least 80%. It'll make the Chelsea Vs Barcelona match look like an even contest

                        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
                        you register with your email for free, and can guess every result of every game before the game starts.

                        under the people who guessed right 400 sixpacks of beer will be distributed every game.

                        overall points are given for right winner, and right exact results. when the euro is over the top5 get overall prices, first is a weekend trip to last time euro champions capital madrid, spain.

                        at wm in south africa i was 3 times right and got once the six pack.

                        makes watching the games more interesting, and you don't risk to get bankrupt like in a real betting office

                          Germany will emerge victorious. I will be very happy about this.

                          I am hoping for a respectable performance from the Italians.

                          England will suck as usual.

                              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.
