Seems to have been the year of the underdog so far so I think it'll be a team nobody is expecting to do well. No idea who but leaning towards a Poland/lewandowski double as a wee outside bet.

Also think England might do pretty well.

Despite it being the year of the under dog, I can't see past France. Was reading that if they get out of their group they avoid most big teams (haven't looked this up to back it up mind). That and the home support makes them stand outs for me.

You think? I dont see one world class player in this England team. Gone are the days of Ashley Cole, Rio Ferdinand, John Terry, Steven Gerrard, Paul Scholes, Franck Lampard and David Beckham. Maybe the fact they dont have any world class players will help them gel.

I don't think the England team is strong at all, very weak midfield and nothing to fantastic up front.

Germans to win it. Nolito from Spain for Top Goalscorer.

In Croatia just now and bought there top today so that'll have to be my team for the tourney.

I think it's fairly open - but I think Germany will win. France have a good chance if they don't all fall out with each other again.

Kane and Vardy are the only England players who I'd be worried about. They're very soft in defence and lacking quality in midfield. I think Wales will top the group.

They are lacking a really good goalscorer but as a unit their goalkeeper and 3 central defenders are the best in the world. I can see them getting pretty far with a lot of 1-0 wins.

Austria. Cracking record in qualifying for the competition, in comparison to others quite a weak group and with David Albala (schuss the spelling) one of the best youngish players around.

For a supposed contender, their defense is bowfin.

Prefer Belgium at around the same price. De Bruyne to rip it up.

I fancy England to do alright. And while not world class players yet I'd take Kane, Alli and Dier in a heartbeat.

Defensively their a bit suspicious but Smallings coming in off the back of the best season he's had.

Sweet Left Peg
07-06-2016, 09:55 PM
Thomas Muller at around 7/1 to be top scorer seems a decent bet to me. Backed the Germans to win as well cos they are never far away.

Italy could be a decent each way shout as they have a solid defence.

Baader
07-06-2016, 10:18 PM
If Germany play to form they win. Despite not having a proper Euro class striker they still have the best squad. I think Spain could be a good bet. Pressure off after a winning run and poor World Cup. They still have an unbelievable amount of talent.

My wife is half Austrian so would love to see them do well, but I can't see them winning it, even in the year of the underdog. Traditionally I've always liked Portugal, but I can't get away from the fact that Ronaldo is an arrogant fanny. At the price I'd definitely fancy Italy(16/1), with Sweden as an interesting wee outside bet (100/1).

Desperate for this. A 1982 performance all over again would be fantastic. The defence is great but we need to find a Paolo Rossi or Toto Schillacci unexpectedly and Pirlo needs to have the swansong tournament of his life. We know how to play tournaments, but so do the Germans...

To be fair, there's been very little hype down here. The media have been playing down England's chances. Even tonight on Radio 5 Live it was said that the best they could hope for would be getting out of the group/quarter final.

I think they might do better than that.

Yes , Sky bet are giving you a 3 free bet every time the team you bet to win outright wins a game ( 10 stake )
I've stuck my 10 on France . 3-1
Going to stick an ew bet on Sweden at 100-1 ( who would have thought Leicster would win the Premier and us to win the Scottish :)

I've got a feeling that Wales could be the dark horses this year. They've got a world class player in Bale who is a genuine match winner, has the ability to turn a game on it's head out of nothing. Wales play really well as a team and don't concede a lot of goals. Definitely worth a fiver at 80/1.

Got a video message from a pal from outside the Queen Victoria at about 10.00pm last night and it looked and sounded no different to your average crowd on the bevvy before a big game.

Watched the match live last night and can't believe the way the foul on the goalkeeper was totally ignored for the first goal. The keeper is claiming that ball all day until Giroud uses his arm to knock the goalkeepers arm out the way, resulting in the ball falling onto his head. The keeper had no need to clean anyone out as he was milliseconds away from simply catching the ball.

Yes, the national anthem is rousing and the French have a battle on their hands security wise but WTF is going on? Will pointing out the bleeding obvious spoil the vibe or something?

If that was some Russian jumping with Joe Hart I'm pretty sure there would have been a little bit more scrutiny...but it's little Romania so who cares?

I thought it wasn't a foul on the goalkeeper. For me it was very weak goalkeeping, Giroud was more determined and stronger to get his head to the ball. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-YhxPjmt8qI you can see here at 25 seconds, I would be raging if that was given as a foul against Hibs. Goalkeepers are too well protected in the modern game.

It wasn't weak goalkeeping at all as he had jumped above Giroud to the required height and was catching the ball. You can only see it in slow motion but Girouds left arm is raised and knocks the keepers right arm out the way as he's just about to catch it. It's a clear foul and has nothing to do with any lack of strength or determination on the goalkeepers part.

It was probably a bit of both...sure there was contact that stopped the keeper catching it that might have been classed as a foul but if the keeper had came strong to punch the ball then he would have cleared it....
