@All

I dont know who to support but dont know whether to support France but with Arsenal's connection i may not.

I am sorry Makalele.
Re: European Nations Cup 2008 Discussion Thread by akinalabi(m): 4:12pm On May 27, 2008
I'll be backing Portugal all the way. . .

Guess why? grin

Because the best player on the the planet plays for them.

And that best player must NOT give excuse for non-performance. wink
Re: European Nations Cup 2008 Discussion Thread by 4Him1(m): 4:27pm On May 27, 2008
It has to be Italy or Germany.
Re: European Nations Cup 2008 Discussion Thread by ritchboy(m): 4:28pm On May 27, 2008
Holland & spain are my favourite european teams.without doubt they produce the most naturally gifted players on that continent. . .
@cesc haters
Guess what?hes bin given the no 10 jersey.
Still trying to figure out how RAUL didnt make the squad. . .
Re: European Nations Cup 2008 Discussion Thread by akinalabi(m): 4:31pm On May 27, 2008
I don't think I'll be putting my money on any of the teams sha. undecided

None of them is outstanding in my reckoning. Shows how poor
England were during the qualifiers not to qualify for this.
Re: European Nations Cup 2008 Discussion Thread by dayokanu(m): 10:41am On May 28, 2008
I go for Germany Naturally. The bayern Link runs deep.

Well i would also be on the look out for Italy- Lucatoni
and France-Ribery

I pray portugal have a dismal tourney so that Ronaldo wont win any award this year:

Player of the tournament: Ballack, Lucatoni, Ribery.
Re: European Nations Cup 2008 Discussion Thread by HNIC(m): 2:17pm On May 28, 2008
I will be rooting for the men from Switzerland.
Why?
Ok, let's take a look at this.
Senderos et al will be playing as hosts.
With the crowd backing them,Senderos and co could get all the way to the finals and win.
Just imagine, if Phillipe has a fantastic tournament, the likes of Milan,Madrid and Inter would begin to covet him,his agent would go to the press and start some 'drama', AW lets him go to the highest bidder for 7million quid(Who cares how much) and finally, Senderos quits Arsenal!!!
So that, next season, whenever the ball is being passed around by Arsenal's defence line, I can sip my drink peaacefully and also, whenever I see Toure or Gallas limping, I am rest assured that Phillipe isn't coming on! grin grin grin
Re: European Nations Cup 2008 Discussion Thread by tkb417(m): 2:24pm On May 28, 2008
My team is the 'oranje boys' anytime anyday
i love the french also.

But this year, PORTUGAL, PORTUGAL, PORTUGAL GO GO GO RONALDO

Ronaldo, Klass, Ribery my players  for the tourney

@HNIC
sorry, they will be out in the first round so Senderos stays
then the hyper continues
hehehehehehe

Point of correction. Ronaldo may be the PLAYER OF THE YEAR fair and square but he certainly ain't the best in the world. I still say best is Ronaldinho.

Just like manager of the year don't mean best manager, just means best performane for that year only.
Re: European Nations Cup 2008 Discussion Thread by RThESlyR: 1:30am On Jun 07, 2008
Germany all the way. cool
Re: European Nations Cup 2008 Discussion Thread by smol(m): 2:14am On Jun 07, 2008

Why would you want the guy to pick an injury?

Euro 2008, is the medium for him to show how good he plays to every European football fan and may be the world.
