Alright, so the 2-year cycle of hating soccer is over for me (I only watch EURO and World cups). Action starts this Friday and this edition should be a good one...



Back in '94 while browsing channels I found a game from WC'94 with one team wearing some really nice orange jerseys and moving the ball really fast, became an instant fan and still am...

I know I'm half english half welsh but cause of the welsh hatred for the english and the fact wales haven't progressed. In all soccer/football competitions, Wales is my primary choice if not possible. Russia.

Gator fan rooting for Germany against Netherlands??



I wish I had my NED jersey for today. However, wearing that around Athens gets you the Tenn./Clemson label

Today's game between Portugal and Denmark has been great.

I think I'll be cheering for England to win the tournament though, their national team is due for some success. I don't think I've ever seen them win a tournament.

Viva Espana! Born in Madrid, hold dual citizenship, though cheering for them has lost some luster just due to all the fan boys jumping aboard.

I'd like to see England do well because so many Liverpool players are on the team, but I doubt they'll do much.

And you're right, Flashy. The game today has been awesome.

i wanted Portugal and NED to win 1-0 today for the 4-way tie final day. Now I want NED to go 4-0 on the Germans

I did not expect the Dutch to lose 2 games, let alone not make it out of the group. I figured they would meet Germany in the semis

They're not completely out yet.

They just need to beat Portugal by 2 or more and have Germany beat Denmark

Longshot with the way they are playing. I'd start Hunter instead of Van Persie and then do the Afellay sub. with Van Persie coming in for the 2nd to work with Hunter. Either way, IMO Hunter needs more playing time, RVP missed a bunch of early opportunities in both games.

You mean Huntelaar? Van Persie has been their only scorer so far and can get goals out of nothing. I would drop Roben for Huntelaar personally as Roben doesn't want to pass and keeps losing the ball. That's why Chelsea sold him all those years ago. Even the Dutch fans joke and say they should give Roben his own ball. Also I would start Van der Vart rather than Van Bommel.

The only tournament we have won is the World Cup in 1966. This is something we like to remind the Scottish about on a regular basis.

Yep, Hunterlaar. I won't mind starting both of them and seating Robben but I'd rather have of them fresh of the bench in case some miracle is needed later. However a miracle is needed right from the start in the next match so whatever they do to make things different I'd be happy with it.

If England loses this I'm going to lose what little interest I have left in this tournament.
