To tell you the truth, I think I'm inclned to agree with you. Not on Yugoslavia, but on the rest.
Anyway, two of the three teams I consider as favorites are going to play against each other in the Quarter Finals (because of the Group format). Huge blow if Spain is thrown out there!
I hope the QF couple is going to be Spain - Holland and the Dutch get thrown out!
Labas, don't say the favorites never win. They do win, but not always, it's like a 60% - 70%. Remember France '98, Brazil '94, Germany - Euro 96 etc. I think one of the favorites is going to win which makes it one among Holland, Spain, France, England and maybe Italy.
If I bet on soccer, oh, those teams that I pick must "thank" me!!!
I think you guys never try that before, whatever you pick, the result will go to the counter way.
I tried this on World Cup, and finally Brazil and Holland lost the trophy.
So everytime when the important matches come, I just keep my mouth shut or even pray for the enemy side.
Still, Mori things again!!! Everyone overlooks him, even the betting company!!!
Do you want to tell me France was the favorite for France 98!? Definitely not, it was Brazil. They wwere one of the favs, but not the favorite. And it EURO 96 the Germans weren't favs either, but got lucky like always! Anyway I agree that it might be one of the big boiys this time around, but I find it quite baffling you put England amongst them. The Brits are one of the ****tiest teams in all of EURO 2000! Only GER< and Slovenia are worse than England! That had to be a misprint Hala Anyway favs for EURO 2000 are Spain, Holland, France and IMO also teams that CANNOT be overlooked are: Yugoslavia and Belgium. Watch out for these bastards - they can do a lot
And about Mori not being counted I think you're overreacting real, because in the list anounced by Williams in the middle of may for Golden Boot winner Mori was like 5th! Only a couple were ahead of him!
