RE: Euro 2016
Ireland are there, we play tomorrow. Clap

England are there, rampaging through Marseilles, and then the Russian thugs felt left out and decided they wanted a bit of action. No No

Dunno who's going to win the tournament. I don't think there are any great teams in it, but the usual suspects (Germany, Spain, Italy, and the hosts France) will be favourites...

RE: Euro 2016
It's been a terrible tournament - up until the other day, Hungary-Portugal (with Ronnie finally putting a half-performance), Iceland banging in a late winner, and on the same day, Ireland heroicaly claiming a last sixteen spot, with victory over Italy (and the referee).

The last 16 line up as follows:

Switzerland v Poland
Wales v N. Ireland
Croatia v portugal
France v Rep. of Ireland
Germany v Slovakia
Hungary v Belgium
Italy v Spain
England v Iceland

It'll finally ignite, I reckon...

The finals of this is on the same day as finals of Wimby. If both Andy and Enfland win, people say that will be the greatest sports day for Englad ever. Of course, that is a IF.

Andy is Scottish, remember he declared for Scottish independence in the referendum? But the principle is the same, the Brits will declare the Brexit to be an utter triumph and the Empire soon to be restored.

Unless Andy sticks a pin in it again and says he cheered for Ireland in the final against England... Snicker

Hazard from Belgium has been the best player of this tournament for me so far. The guy cannot do any wrong.

They're beginning to peak at the right time. Easier run to the final too...

So, Andy does not have to be worried about England stealing the lime-light from his second Wimbledon win.

England were like rabbits in the headlights: cowardly, frozen solid, clueless, leaderless, overpaid, undersexed and no longer over there! Lolz

^ Add lack of imagination too. Everything they tried to do was telegraphed . Nobody creative in that squad me thinks.

The quarters:

Portugal v Poland
Wales v Belgium
Germany v Italy
France v Iceland


I suppose Belgium are coming good at the right time, and both Italy and Germany are very strong. France might also continue to improve.

Iceland and Wales and Poland have performed above themselves, and Portugal have been fairly rubbish so far. My semifinal projections, however, will put Portugal in there because I think they're born lucky this time:

Portugal v Belgium
Italy v France
