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.

Hiddink can be one damn great coach when he's not managing strong teams.
Why not strong teams? Maybe he can use the surprise effect with teams that aren't usually considered good?
Anyway, I'm looking forward to the very interesting Turkey vs. Germany match tonight. If I was a Turk living in Germany (or vice versa) I'd be torn. (All the more if I'd taken a particular liking to the country I live in but also wanted to respect my heritage and family?) ALTHOUGH, looking at the subject from a positive point of view for a change, it's a great situation for the many Turks in Germany: whoever wins they can take sides with them?

Let me tell you, my friend, 95% of the Turks living in Germany will support Turkey, and be sad if Germany wins. You can't run away from your background.

Nope, Finland... Damn army! The Turkish text in my previous post is...umm, what is it called in English...A supporting song? Like "You'll never walk alone".

Europe, Europe, hear our voice/What you hear is Turkey rumbling

However, I have my doubts...

The Turks will win. Slow moving teutonic Knights won't be able to get close enough to the fully upgraded Turkish Janissaries.

Haha awesome, kevo

But fyi Germany won. I know a certain Turk in Finland who's disappointed! But it's good to have Germany in the final and Turkey played a fabulous match. If the Russians make it to the final, Germany has a better chance of beating them than Turkey, I thinks?
What you hear is Turkey rumbling
Wow, how old is that song? I'm gonna learn that by heart (I've just read Mikael Hakim by Mika Waltari and this got me all excited about Turkey. )

Hiddink is a goddamn genius!
Amen.

And yes, Hiddink getting Korea to the semi-finals was amazing. Though then their loss was very disappointing. Oh well.

Go South Korea!! Deh han min-gook! (clapclap clap clap clap)

Great match from the Turks, too bad they lost
Still, that second Turkish goal was one of the best I've seen on the tournament.

Umm, okay, Russia might've been good between their two games against Spain but they had little to show for it. BESIDES, Spain just plain ruled and I'm looking forward to sunday so I can see them beat Germany. Oh well, all I can say is, it's gonna be an interesting final and Spain TOTALLY deserves to win. I mean, they have the ho--best players.

Anyway, I support Spain today! I like their style more than Germany's. Hope Spain will avoid making too much mistakes.

VIVA ESPAÑA! I have a lot more relatives in Spain (some) than in Germany (none) so I thought it'd be logical to support Spain instead of Germany.

I was supporting Germany. I really thought that we could manage the win. But we gave away the ball way too many times, and Spain took full advantage of that in bombarding us. Spain deserved it.

I didn't really support any of the finalists, but at least Spain came from our group . Besides, they deserve the victory more than Germany.

Ha. Not one of us called the winner. A great lot of pundits we are.

I say I won, based on being closest, geographically.

EDIT: Sorry, I missed OWM. Well done him. I still come second though.

Oh, well. It's been too long since Spain won their last Euro anyway. Just let them hold that glorious trophy this year, while they still can.

Congrats OWM. You have just OWM-ed us all.

Indeed.
But they won't stop here. Unless France finds new talents I'm pretty sure Spain will rock the World Cup as well. (Notice how France is my only guess for a winner instead of Spain, this is not based on any rational consideration but merely my quasi(or quaazi?)-patriotic francophilia. IN CASE somebody just thought about debunking my prediction!)

France didn't need new talents. They definitely needed a new coach, and now they're gonna get it.

Let's see whether England fails to qualify yet again. The World Cup would suck big time without them.

I was serious about finding new talents. They're losing Thuram and Makélélé, and you saw what happened once Ribéry got injured in the match against Italy. Damn Italians. That was no accident! (Oh, that reminds me, if I ever start a toothpaste company the toothpaste will be called AcciDent.)
