OT: Euro 2008 Finals!!!

So.......

like always, we come to the point where a major competition is going to take place this upcoming month. And as always, Israel didnt make it.

But no fears, we love seating off our over heated nation in the summer in our cool cool Air conditioned living rooms with some nice sofa's and watch Euro 2008.......

So, to start it off....
lets do some predictions...

Who will you route for in the upcoming Euro 2008?

Who do you think will suprise everyone in Euro 2008?

Who do you think will be a total and utter failure in Euro 2008?

and most importantly...

Who do you think will WIN the Euro 2008 competition?


Here are some outside questions if you guys wanna answer:

Predict the final match up. Which 2 would make it?

Are you even going to the Euro 2008? If so, which games/tickets do you have?

TURKEY


Who do you think will suprise everyone in Euro 2008?
CROATIA


Who do you think will be a total and utter failure in Euro 2008?
AUSTRIA... But I guess this is a very easy question and was predictable from the moment the hosts were selected. I would be surprised if the Austrians get a single point.


and most importantly...

Who do you think will WIN the Euro 2008 competition?
Usually the Euro leave more room for an unexpected winner than the World Cup. I think CROATIA will shock the world and win this tournament. Germany and Italy are favourites IMO but I would be surprised if a favourite wins it. I put my bet on CROATIA.


Here are some outside questions if you guys wanna answer:

CROATIA versus GERMANY

Are you even going to the Euro 2008? If so, which games/tickets do you have?
No :sad: I would have loved to go as I really love Austria, it's such as beautiful country. But finances are stopping me really, tickets for the games means buying them on the black market and paying sky high prices. But here in Berlin the city council created a sandy beach on the banks of the river Spree with giant TV screens, so with tourists from all over Europe visiting this city it will be very pleasant to watch the games in those open air venues!

Who will you route for in the upcoming Euro 2008?hey

Italy and Holland

Who do you think will suprise everyone in Euro 2008?

Croatia ( are they still considered surprise?) They are one of the strongest NT's in Europe today and why not in the world today. Since they aren't in the traditionals we could consider surprise.
But other than Croatia, i believe that maybe Greece has something to show here. They have Rehaggel still as their coach and have many players of the Euro 2004 campaign.
Russia, wouldn't choose, but they have Hiddink.

Who do you think will be a total and utter failure in Euro 2008?

Spain are always a major player in this list. I believe once again they will fall.

Who do you think will WIN the Euro 2008 competition?


IMO the winner of the Euro 2008 will be one of the two teams that qualify from Group B and C. In this case i would be with Germany or Italy.

Predict the final match up. Which 2 would make it?

As i said in the previous one, my bet are on the teams of group B and C. Germany and Italy is a possible final, but i wouldn't rule out Croatia or whoever goes through among France and Holland.


Are you even going to the Euro 2008? If so, which games/tickets do you have? [/QUOTE]

Unfortunately i won't attend the matches, but definitely i will be watching most of the games on TV.

No! I will be in Prague International Airport. About 45 Minutes from the semi final game. Sitting for 3 hours waiting to board a slummy AirBus plane to Tel Aviv........ I am discrace. Kill me this is one of the worst days in my life.....

No chance of having a final between Italy vs France, they would meet in the semifinals.

I respect your answer, but thats weaaaaaaaaaak.
Its a once in a blue moon that you would have a major tournament in your country, close to you....

I mean, for us foreigners it cost to stay, to eat, to buy tickets and what not.

You just take the tram to the stadium, get some food and have tickets and your good....
Why did u buy tickets? for the finals even?

Holland is playing the best football so far, but that is not new, let´s see if they don´t choke on moneytime, i´m cheering for them and Italy.

It is a possibility, would be a great game, but i believe the final will be another game. Portugal or Germany in one side and possibly Holland in another one, but if Italy goes through i wouldn't count them out.

Italy is by far done....
I think France is still dominating and they also have a chance...which makes the group of death even more intresting

TÜRKIYE !!!

What a game... Maybe not the best game but by far the most dramatic one of the tournament. The tournament's already been a success by now for Turkey so I am very pleased, no matter what happens against Turkey (without Volkan and Mehmet Aurelio I give them only a very small chance to get a result against Croatia)

Goaltending shouldn't be a problem for the Turks, despite Volkan's red card. There back up goalie Recber Rustu of Besiktas should still be the number 1 goalie in the eyes of many. He is just as good as Volkan who didn't have a great game today either. Rustu has played 128 games for Turkey. Also, Israel were very close to beating Croatia at Ramat-Gan if it wasn't for a terrible Tomer Ben-Yosef error and barely lost in Zagreb in a very tightly contested match, so I think a Turkish upset is very possible.
