the Euro 2004 thread

I find all the media coverage of this tournament here a bit extreme considering we aren't even in Europe! I have to return to school next week but I'll try to follow the tournament anyway. My predictions:

Germany to get knocked out in the group stages
Holland to lose on penalties at some stage
Latvia not to progress
Sweden to the semi-finals
Czech Republic or Italy to win.

Next week Euro 2004 starts for us Dutchies with the match against Germany. Both the Netherlands as Germany had a disastrous build-up (with the Netherlands losing to Ireland with 0-1 in their last match and Germany with 0-2 against a B-team of Hungary). So in a way, it'll be the blind playing the crippled. It should be interesting... (cannot predict the result though)

BTW, the Netherlands losing on penalties is a no-brainer. Penalties should be abolished!



C ya!

it could be an interesting championship

hard to predict anything really

I could name 8 teams who should be able to make it through to the semi finals

there is no coverage about the Euro 2004 here.

I am hoping to catch a few matches though at some of the pubs around here.

Not sure exactly where you are, but there are definitely some pubs in the DC area showing the matches...I'll certainly be going to a couple!

ok, so here are the lyrics. now i have to hear it!

[q]
Three Lions

i think it's bad news for the English game)
(we're not creative enough)
(we're not positive enough)
It's coming home, it's coming home, it's coming,
footballs coming home (we'll go on getting bad)
It's coming home, it's coming home, it's coming,
footballs coming home
It's coming home, it's coming home, it's coming,
footballs coming home
It's coming home, it's coming home, it's coming,
footballs coming home
Everyone seems to know the score, they've seen it all before
they just know, they're so sure
that England's gonna, throw it away, gonna blow it away
but i know they can play,
'cus i remember

three lions on a shirt
Jules Remet still gleaming
thirty years of hurt
never stopped me dreaming

so many jokes, so many snears
but all those 'oh so near's
when your down, through the years
but i still see that tackle by Moore
and when Linaker scored, Bobby belting the ball
and nobby dancing

three lions on a shirt
Jules Remet still gleaming
thirty years of hurt
never stopped me dreaming

(England have done it, in the last minute of extra time)
(what a save, what now)
(good old England, England that couldn't play football)
(England have got it in the bag)

i know that was then, but it could be again
It's coming home, it's coming home, it's coming,
footballs coming home
It's coming home, it's coming home, it's coming,
footballs coming home
(England have done it)
It's coming home, it's coming home, it's coming,
footballs coming home
It's coming home, it's coming home, it's coming,
footballs coming home *REPEATED IN BACKGROUND*

three lions on a shirt
Jules Remet still gleaming
thirty years of hurt
never stopped me dreaming

three lions on a shirt
Jules Remet still gleaming
thirty years of hurt
never stopped me dreaming

three lions on a shirt
Jules Remet still gleaming
thirty years of hurt
never stopped me dreaming [/q]
