Find the words to feed the passion

Tuesday 1 April 2008
Find the words to feed the passion
uefa.com users will choose the slogans to be painted on the team coaches (©UEFA)


euro2008.com users can send an inspiring message to teams at UEFA EURO 2008™ by choosing slogans to go on the 16 team buses with the Be There with Hyundai feature.

Inspiring words
Between 1 and 23 April, euro2008.com users can help choose the words that will be emblazoned on the side of the team coaches at UEFA EURO 2008™, selecting their favourites from the three options put forward for each competing country. Slogans will be written in the native language of each nation, but an English translation has been provided to enable fans to choose a message for more than one team. Users can select a slogan for one team, several or all 16, but are advised to choose carefully, as they can vote only once. Click the buses to get a closer look at where the most popular messages will be painted.

Most of the slogans are dreary and uninspiring.

Only good one is Convoi exceptionnel

La Juve? Lasciamo perdere.

who thought up with these lame politically correct slogans?

These are awful:
"because only sport and good fun counts!"
"Russia will defeat you in fair play! The Trophy will be attained and seized away from you!"
"Turkey on two continents; fair play comes first, then trophy!"
"We just want to play…"
"Holland, on the way to fair play"
please!! from these quotes it seems the Fair Play trohpy is more valuable than winning the actual tournament

though honestly, I found this one a little funny and will actually vote for it:
"Our Swiss watch says: It's time to win"


edit: I'm looking at Russia's, and boy, I would be embrassed to be on that bus

"The 'Golden Generation' is in this bus"
"Step aside, we are the best team in the world"
"Qualfying? We're England!"

Holland's slogans are beyond lameness:

1 mission, 1 feeling, together we are orange - wtf? I like being white just fine, sod off.
Be a winner, fair play! - I just want to win, fúck fair play
Holland, on the way to fair play - Holland, on it's way out of the tournament
