    Congrats on becoming blue, gold!

    Joined up. I actually think France will win, but in the end, I picked Spain to beat Holland in a rematch of the 2010 WC Final.

    I'm sure Germany will get far but for once I actually DOUBT they can win this year, can't say why just have a "feeling". I've got my hopes on Netherlands this time, I've not rooted as my favourites before so here goes. They've played really good football in the last few international tournaments but just haven't transformed that into constant results. Hopefully they can pull through now and not falter.

    Re: UEFA Euro 2012

    I find netherland's football good but very violent at times (for instance the game with most card sin history was between Netherlands and Portugal arround 6 or 8 years ago). If They win I hope I don't see a shameful football from them. I remember in the final when De Jong hit Xabi Alonso in the chest. Man as much as I think they play very well they need to contain themselves and play like true champions to be the champions.

    Oh yes "that" incindent, If I remember correctly weren't they quite violent in that whole tournament? I seem to remember a match where there were many cards dished out involving them and.....was it Portugal or someone else?

    Yes, I remember how intense that match was. Don't forget Kung-fu kick incident by De Jong too, last year.

    By the way, congratulation for your new rank!

    ----------

    I'm rooting for Germany, but somehow I believe Holland / France would win the tournament. Still, group phase is often more unpredictable compared to knock out phase.

    Re: UEFA Euro 2012

    I'm surprised nobody picks Spain, they're the defending Europe and World Champions, they have more star players than any other team in their squad and they're an experienced team with players who know each other very well. Casillas is one of the best goalkeepers in the world, Pique and Ramos are top-class defenders, Xavi, Iniesta, Fabregas and Xabi Alonso arguably constitute one of the best midfields of all time. The only problem is in their forward line, the top goalscorer of last European Championship David Villa is injured and Torres had a very bad season at Chelsea. Even then, IMHO they're still the favorites with Germany and Netherlands following closely behind.

    Re: UEFA Euro 2012

    They've not had a great build up campaign leading to the Euros though, that's my main concern and there isn't that "hype" that surrounded them as with the previous 2 tournaments. Whether that is because people are now expecting them to win it and are clear favourites or there are doubts in their form. Honestly though, it'd be no surprise AT ALL if they win but I've got doubts....

    Yep, I'm still at work and watching it

    It's been a good opening match, really high tempo and quite thrilling, particularly in the second half.

    Meh,kinda dissapointing. the match itself was exciting,but Poland could've won easily.Man,my Polish heritage is dissatisfied. Hope they don't lose their spirit now.
    (Admittedly,Greece wasn't too bad,but still)
