    Off Topic The Official EURO 2008 thread


    I'm sure i'm not the only one who is looking forward to see this tournament, so here's the official thread!

    What do you guys think about the draw? My squad got into the worst case scenario, with Holland, France and Italy.. (the team with the best UEFA coefficient and the finalists of 2006 World Cup). It couldn't have been worse.. All the other groups seem so simple compared to this one.. My prediction is that whoever gets out of that group, will play the final.

    Btw, is anyone planning to go to any of the games?

    Man im shattered, England didnt make it so my interest in the cup has pretty much all but gone.
    How the hell did we not make it.
    Anyways good luck to your country, all the best.

    I will root for Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal! I will be visiting Portugal and Spain this year, which would be my first time in Europe. Cristiano ronaldo is playing at a very high level!!

    Rady, I wish Romania luck although they beat my team a few times in World Cups ( Colombia). It is a very difficult group though!!

    Spain will choke again lol, such a strong side yet no success.
    I think Holland will win it, love Van Nistelrooy being a Man Utd fan.
    I hate Portugal with a passion, even if Ronaldo is playing. Damn them.

    Thanks, man. Love being hated, that means we're doing something right.
    Anyway, it's not like we are going to win it all this year. We had our big chance in 2004 and we blew it. Scolari sucks ass.

    We still have some of the best defenders in Europe (Carvalho, Pepe, Bruno Alves, Bosingwa), one great midfielder (Deco) and brilliant wings (Ronaldo, Quaresma, Nani)...but it won't be enough for sure.
    Italy will probably win it all.

    Be sure to visit Porto, Alto Douro, Alentejo and Algarve. Wonderfully beautiful areas.

    I like the German squad a lot. Klose, Ballack, Podolski are great players. Podolski, and Klouse, are Polish to bad they didn't play for the Polish National team,but they decided to play for the Germans.
