i actually feel bad for those who picked Netherlands   didnt give the Czechs a game really,  Red Card was however correctly advised by the English VAR official in charge but even before that you could see it was a case of when not if that the czechs scored

Good call on following Czech Republic. Wide open bottom half in this Euros. I fancy Sweden to beat Ukraine. They could potentially play England/Germany for a place in a Semi-finals against Denmark/Czechs.

We live in interesting times.

Oh my, how some teams have turned up or not bothered. 

Netherlands were horrible.  Terrible applcation.

I said during the France game that they were being arrogant.  The next morning, German News used the exact same term.   

As far a I am concerned, England smacked Germany.  Yes it was one of those games where there was not really that much happening but, alas, that is the way of modern association football. 

{I support, have supported a team for decades that is in the Premier League.  Yet the last few senior men's game I have attended were League One - because there is much to watch without the aggravation, and theatricals].

posted this on wrong section

 

So we have 7 more matches (no third /fourth play off)---so I believe-- there is only max. 35 points still available--nobody (i believe ) has all there final 4 still in last 8)---so nobody can score 35 points--max 30 points (which is unlikely)--betting wise only those within 15 points have a chance.--which does not include me (21 points behind and only 2 main teams left in !)

 

 good luck to all those still with a chance.

 

 Cheers Roy

added--forgot--BONUS 5pts if your number 1 team nominated team wins Euro 2020

Yes, indeed, I was going to put on the table a highlighted amount of players that could potentially win but wasn't sure if it was desired. Quick table update prior to the Italy/Belgium match and post Spain/Swiss.

that was always the double edged risk of this type of tournament when venues were decided

Quarter Final that is hundreds of miles away from either team and England play all but 1 game at home in the tournament     both ends of the unfairness scale,   maybe the Germans get revenge tonight on us with all the match officials being from there

I think only way i could win is Spain Vs Denmark final and Denmark wins it. If Denmark beats Italy in the final, it would be joint top with Johnrobertson. If Italy and England are the final 2 it will be interesting as the winner would crown either Johnrobertson or Astleavista the winner.

Despite having a bet on both Italy and Denmark, I see the final being Ita / Eng.

Just 10k fans in a quarter final, because it's so far away. Bit of a joke really. Can hear a pin drop.

Always risk, in these COVID times.  Any nation had the reason or excuse to ban spectators.  I guess only UEFA ensured that nations could not ban participants 😱.

Ultimately, this will be the time when commercialism became the clear priority over potential risks.

But sport first eh?  The tournament is about sport, and that should include the capacity for spectators to attend.  Even if it means bussing them from the country's POA to the game, and then back.  {Practically had that experience when I went to Netherlands/Argentina at WC 1998, so it can be done.]

Here's hoping England get the breaks and wins the next 2.  They may have to up their physical effort though.

Thanks Fader for the updates.

Quite quiet in here.   Are we worn out or too excited?

Italy look a good team.  Although their front end was misfiring against Spain.

For England to win the tournament, they have to beat the structured, quite efficient team of Denmark.  Then take on the very different Italy.  Italy seem fast, and have a cerebral touch to them, to keep opposition players "honest".

The England press, well sort of press worked against Ukraine.  A bit tatty in parts, like a part team press, others staying off.  I just feel England looks a little below on the giving it physically side.

No probs. Does seem quiet, you're right. I think England will take advantage of Italy with their pace in the final third. If they make the final. I'm looking forward to both matches, either way.

Well it is over.  Overall I am disappointed, not just by England's overall performance. 

For the record, England have won 3 out of 10 penalty shootouts in major(ish) tournaments.  It is probably:

1) that we dwell so much on the losses that we remember them so much more

2) we create so much hoo-haa before the game (football is coming home, bank holiday, likely knoghthoods) that the fall is a long way.

 

Right - some positives.  England went further than I expected.  And regardless, a Final is pretty good.  Not there are the likes of Spain, France, Belgium, Germany.  Englands has some kids who could become excellent seasoned professionals at internatinal and club level.  So look forward is worth it.  Some players out-performed my expectations too.

I was pleased that Scotland and Wales qualified.  Wales showed great spirit. Scotland continue with some their fair share of misfortunes and with players with less multi-leagues experiences at club level.  Perhaps Northern Ireland can make a play next tournament?

I was impressed by a couple of non-Home Nations strikers. I liked seeing perfect execution as a result of combining years of prectice, top technique and intelligence.

 

Here's hoping for the next banter thread at the World Cup.  I hope there can be more to say / discuss / debate from more players.
