      Absolutely buzzing for this.
      Yep, can't chuffing wait for this one. As you say, the tournament is absolutely WIDE open and there are tons of matches to salivate over.

      That said, I THINK THIS COULD BE BELGIUM'S YEAR.

      One thing I'm not a fan of is the 3rd places qualifying - could mean less drama at the final group game, more dead rubbers. I like the harshness of just 2 teams through. Playing all those games just to lose 1 team out of 4 feels like overkill.

      I wonder if there should be a separate thread entitled:-

      'Albion Players at the Euros'

      As The Tross would appear to also be going.




      I can't wait to only be really excited about this tournament the night before England get knocked out.

      Totally agree.

      When it's two go through, you know if you lose the first game, you're on the brink. You get that tension right from the off. Much less tension with the safety net of a third place.

      If you were designing a 24 team tournament from a football point of view, rather than to make money, you'd have one to qualify automatically each from the 6 groups and a couple of next best spaces up for grabs.

      Though better would be to reduce it back to 16 teams

      Why are we always too short odds for these things? I'd put us about 4th/5th favourites.

      Who is going to win?
      England 9/2

      France 11/2

      Belgium 6/1 - tempted to get on this

      Spain 13/2

      Germany 15/2

      Portugal 15/2
