I have been, Europe is were the best soccer is played (I know the PC police will find that offensive). There are no Togo's, Angola's, Trindad's in this tournament. Even the worst team here (technically Austria) would beat those teams

I agree, this is such a great tournament, and now England isnt in it, every team will actually try to play football (jokes)

I havent really been thinking of it, but after sunday when Roma get cheated out of the league, I will have this to look forward too at least

I don't know about that honestly, I have a feeling a lot of these games will be 1:0, 0:0, 1:1, like in the CL. Very cautious play, especially in the semi finals. So many of these teams play with one up front and it's getting very predictable

Though it's better than watching 11 Africans/Asians running around like lunatics

the Eduardo injury is really hitting home for us now, Taylor you feckwit!!

I'm begging to get nervous now, counting days, weeks, in the office reading news..so much anticipation..


And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn

Euro 2000 was amazing!

How many great games were they? That Spain game when Mendieta scored a last minute penalty to make it 4-3 v Yugoslavia was a good 'un.

Unbelievably excited about this. I'll be finished uni, I won't have a job. I can basically just watch football all day.

I love the Euro's just as much as the WC

I think I'm going to fall down the stairs at work in a couple of weeks. Hopefully break a leg or something. All in the interest of football. Should be good.

I hope you don't break you leg, some people are not fortunate to have a healthy one this time of the year

The PC police reports and says that you are not being anti-pc but rather extremely clueless. Austria would most certainly lose to Angola and also probably to Togo.

About my personal expectations towards this Euro I have to say that this tournament will not be the same thing without England, and I am very far from joking here.
