so... tomorrow the euro2008 football championship begins. Flame here
I'm also waiting for rants by haters of REAL football
Why do you like football? Im english, everyone i know likes football. To me its alot of men running around in shorts. That get you going?
Dont get me wrong, im not a fat bastard in my moms basement, i just prefer to do things more exiciting like mountain biking.
Or watching paint dry.
I'm taking my guess for the winner, I say Spain
Italy is, as usual, a crazy outsider... could go out after the first stage as well as reach the final. I don't feel very confident though
i'd say italy but odd wise i don't think it's possible to win this after they got the world cup. spain has the best team but they usually suck at international competitions. so i say either germany or portugal.
edit: soccer my ass...at least in our football we actually use our ...you know...feet!

Germany is favs .. again, but i reckon those wanker Italians will win it... or France. dunno , guess i better watch and see!!
O and to the poster who says Spain .. well they are like England, technically should be best, but was the 60's when they last won anything... (1964 if i remember correctly)
But what the hell is this speak about american football being manlier(though it is by fine line compared to real football)? It´s fucking pussified rugby.
To quote this site:
There is only one kind of proper football; you call it soccer. Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities to American football, but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body Armour like a bunch of nancies). Don't try Rugby - the South Africans and Kiwis will thrash you, like they regularly thrash us.
<edit> My votes for Germany and Portugal, not that i´d really give a shit about it, but Germany is just a pure kick ass country anyway, and Portugal has the best crowds in europe (I´d vote for Brazil if it was wc).

i really don't want italy to win it, for the sole reason it would be a step to overtake brazils reputation as the top team. if they take this euro and the next world cup, they'll have an amazing world,euro,world cup streak, and also 5 world cups. brazil won't be able to match it ever, unless they win three world cups in 12 years. brazil has to stay on top damn it!
italia will probably make it again, although id like germany to win
i'll be laughing my ass off if greece manages to keep it
i have to bet on greece just for the sake of it. if i did that last euro i'd be a millionaire today.
