Go France! :P
I think Spain or Holland win, realistically, but we'll see. I think people have slept on France, but who knows. I believe Germany is overrated right now though. Of the four teams (Spain, Holland, Germany, and France) that have any chance of winning the Euros, Germany has the worst strikers, and I think that that'll be the difference. Spain and France's shoddy defending could come back to bite them, however.
On other news, it appears Hazard's deal is finally done. Joey Barton got punched in the face (always a positive) and Craig Bellamy's apparently going to be one of the three overage players for the Olympics. I mean, you've got a host of overage players to choose from and one of Woy's choices is Craig Bellamy?

Hazard's deal was announced days ago(1st June iirc) and yeah I heard about Joey Barton; made my day if they're choosing Bellamy, I hope to GOD they've spoken to Giggs about it already and the other host of PL players who are over 30.
Hazard's deal was announced by Hazard back in May, but it was finally finished today. :P
France has been really impressive under Laurent Blanc, and while it was only a friendly with players missing on both sides, France crushed Germany in February. France has been quite convincing lately, so I just think they've got something to prove. Plus, they'd want to go into Euro 16 as the holders on their home ground. To be honest, while I'd love for France to win the Euros, I think the semifinals is what they should hope for, and just build up for the 2014 WC and Euro 16.
I'd have Portugal as a surprise team/dark horse if their principal man wasn't CR7. They actually have quite a few good players, although people like Pepe are a huge liability.
I haven't gone to search the internet, but you can see it for yourself about Bellamy. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/olympics/18320907

tbh, I couldn't care less about who wins the euro 12, only thing I care about is our performance against England
If we play like we did vs Iceland the first half we'll have a shot :*
France may be everyone's favourite to win Euro 2012 but I hope Portugal win it.
I want a Holland vs Germany final or world cup final rematch
Silveritz from OMF was nice enough to collect these pics:

Like the shirt tho D:
These were my thoughts on the issue.
Who made those kits? As big a Chelsea supporter as I am, that star is ridiculous and is just not in the spirit of the game.
United's is halfway decent. Purple just isn't a great color for kits in general, and it looks so wrong for Arsenal. Liverpool's doesn't even look like anything resembling an LFC kit.
Villa has the best looking kit out of the five, although that's not saying much, but unfortunately, it looks like a polo shirt, not a jersey.
Well actually the Liverpool kits are based on their old kits from back in the day. Or so I have heard, I think its quite decent actually. I'm gonna get them
I've been thinking about buying the white kit with the yellow, black, and blue on the top that we used when we moved past Barca in the SFs, but I don't want this new kit with the star on it. It just looks overly tacky.
Wouldn't mind if the grey was changed to red so liverpool went red/black instead of red/white :#
One mistake fixed; Villa kit is actually Everton.
I absolutely hate Arsenal's new away kit, if that's the final version. I've got this previous season's one and it's lovely as Arsenal always has really nice away kits but that one is absolute rubbish.
I don't know who would come up with that away kit. It's even worse than the new Germany kits that were unveiled in Bremen during that friendly loss to France in Frebruary, and those were ugly.
