I thought this definetly needs a thread.

Here I keep track of the games.

Group A: Points
Portugal: 6
Turkey: 6
Czech Republic: 3
Switzerland: 3

Group B: Points
Germany: 6
Croatia: 9
Austria: 1
Poland: 1

Group C: Points
Netherlands: 9
Italy: 4
Romania: 2
France: 1

Group D: Points
Greece: 0
Sweden: 3
Spain: 6
Russia: 3

Have your say: Who will win Euro 2008? Post it in bold, it'll be easier for me to see. Also, you cannot post the team you think will win after a quarterfinal is over (to make it more fair... :P). Later we can all praise the ones who guessed the winner.

Germany: Quaazi, Fattybryce, Andanu, John Mendl
Spain: Other White Meat
Italy: Basse
Portugal: Julius
Netherlands: Epic, Dead End, Murloc, Fenris



My sig will be for one week: "I am a big fat noob who thought that Italy would lose the euro" if Italy wins the euro.

That done, we just discuss the greatest sport on this planet or any other.

To be honest, the best captured moment in the game was when his face shows a painful look after Friedrich stomped at his foot. How priceless.
Ugh, that was terrible. It got the ESPN announcers into a little discussion about how back in the day soccer players were real men and tried not to look like humongous pussies, but that diving had changed all that. Sad but true...

But on a lighter note - excellent game! Great first-half performance by Germany, and while the second half was a little weak, on the whole I'd say I was very happy with how they played, especially without Lw or Frings. I really can't see them losing to Croatia or Turkey after that...but stranger things have happened in this tournament, so I'm not gonna get too overconfident.

I predict Spain to win.

Oh come on, what malevonlence! Although his faces are pretty funny... *chuckles* But he's got that agonising look all the time when Portugal's losing. AND, if I hear ANYONE, ANYONE say how good-looking C. Ronaldo is I'm gonna stick a photo of David Villa in their face because he's like 100 times more goodlooking than all the Portuguese and Italians altogether. Oh well maybe I'm exaggerating just a little bit but come on, he's obviously hotter than CR.
Uhm, and I'm not gay. Totally not. HONESTLY.

Like I said, both Carlos and Cili, I don't take any more predictions. It'd be unfair now that there are so few contestants.

And I am happy to see that people here hate Ronaldo too. Usually I'm a minority in hating him. And I have no idea how people think Ronaldo is handsome. I mean, I ain't gay either so maybe I'm not the authority on this, but he looks like a little punk who has been beaten up behind the school repeatedly.

Okay I am back to give some more ignorant US commentary:

So I turn on my TV and see the end of this Turkey Croatia game. here are my thoughts

1. Wouldn't it be totally fitting if TURKEY won the tournament called EURO?

2. What was up with that celebration. I thought it was the championship game, then they said next up Germany, so I thought "oh they are going to the championship game". Wrong again. A little excessive I think.

3. How the hell do you miss that giant net with a penalty shot? And these are supposed to be premier athletes. I might not score, but I would bet every cent I own I could hit the net. And Croatia missed twice!

4.Back to the celebration, I am pretty sure I saw something very close to gay sex taking place on the field. Somebody should teach those turks how to celebrate, cause hugging and bouncing like teenage girls doesn't cut it.

5. I was somewhat amused by the fact that this was billed as a big offense game. The score was 1-1.

So yah, now scream at me for being a dumb American. At least I am trying to watch your sport, so I am improving

Just a thought: -Hiddink (coach of Russia) received about 500.000 just for reaching the quarterfinal with Russia.
Every single player received a bonus of 300.000 each.

So that's, in my opinion, one of the reasons for celebrating.

Here it goes:

1. Wouldn't it be totally fitting if TURKEY won the tournament called EURO?

- It's been more or less accepted for the past years that Turkey is a part of Europe.

2. What was up with that celebration. I thought it was the championship game, then they said next up Germany, so I thought "oh they are going to the championship game". Wrong again. A little excessive I think.

- Teams like Croatia and Turkey are relatively small. Just reaching the semi finals is huge for the players and the fans.

3. How the hell do you miss that giant net with a penalty shot? And these are supposed to be premier athletes. I might not score, but I would bet every cent I own I could hit the net. And Croatia missed twice!

- Of course it is easy to just hit the goal, even under all that pressure. The thing is, you want to actually score and put the ball somewhere where the goalkeeper can't save it. That would be close to the posts, and if you miss the side netting by just a decimetre the ball goes out.

4.Back to the celebration, I am pretty sure I saw something very close to gay sex taking place on the field. Somebody should teach those turks how to celebrate, cause hugging and bouncing like teenage girls doesn't cut it.

- Gay sex is good.

5. I was somewhat amused by the fact that this was billed as a big offense game. The score was 1-1.

- The teams are good attacking teams and should have been more offensive, but they didn't show much of it in the game. It wasn't a "big offense game" and I don't know who billed it as that.

So yah, now scream at me for being a dumb American. At least I am trying to watch your sport, so I am improving

- I hope you enjoy the rest of the tournamet.

They outclassed us everywhere, so it's a well-deserved victory.

Morale of the story: never underestimate Hiddink. Ever.

Hiddink is a goddamn genius! Today I expect Italy to win, which means all group winners are pooped. Then I expect Italy and Germany in the final. (And I'm in Italy during the final... and I support Germany *scared*)

Noo, I was more hyperactive than drunk. That's what happens... um, sometimes.

This one goes a bit off, because fan behaviour is similar regardless of the sport at hand. Besides, what Ornlu said. There is a great chance that gay sex is better than non-gay sex, or perhaps equally good. In any way this hardly has anything to do with the sport itself.
It wasn't a "big offense game"
Maybe more players than usual were somehow offended? Or maybe the game itself was particularly offensive, as in, more than the normal amount of easily-offended people watched it?

Comparing the Russians the way they played against Spain (lost 4-1) and the way they played against the Netherlands I think they have a good chance of winning this tournament.

But anyway, what do you expect with Hiddink as coach. I mean this guy made every team he coached better .

Hopefully next season in Holland will be more interesting with Van Basten as coach for Ajax.

*screams at Matty*

Russia and Turkey are two amongst teams which spectators expected to be trampled by teams that statistic-wise, had the better chance of winning, such as France or Italy.

Fact reveals that they showed a performance that gets better and better with each match they take part. If I were either Joachim Lw or Aragons, I'd be quite shivering under my spine right now, and think that it'd be very foolish to underestimate these two underdogs.

I am very, very disappointed at Netherlands, France, especially England and even Italy. They've been underachieving lately, and sucking bad. Netherlands had a great start but they screwed up. This ofcourse just means that these other countries have gotten better. Still. Russia?! What the hell?

Yeah. If Hiddink can get South Korea to 4th in the World Cup, and Russia into the Top 4 of the Euro, he can probably get the United States a World Cup title.

...maybe

Hiddink can be one damn great coach when he's not managing strong teams.
