Euro 2016 General Discussion

Post by Peccadillo on Wed Mar 09, 2016 5:16 am

Surprised to see there isn't a thread for Euro 2016?

Here's the draw - not that the groups particularly matter now that everyone's a winner.

In fact there is an argument that it would suit England more to come 2nd or 3rd than first in their group.

Group A
Albania
France
Romania
Switzerland

Group B
England
Russia
Slovakia
Wales

Group C
Germany
Northern Ireland
Poland
Ukraine

Group D
Croatia
Czech Republic
Spain
Turkey

Group E
Belgium
Italy
Republic of Ireland
Sweden

Group F
Austria
Hungary
Iceland
Portugal

24 teams is too much. The past format with 16 teams was better.

Probably the point about this is to broadcast more games and therefore expand the money profit. No problem with that but this "best third place" thing... come on man !!! it bugs me.

I believe this lowers the quality standard of the competition.
However I have to admit my curiosity to see the journey of smaller teams like Iceland, Wales, Sweden. There is a always a bright side !

The pool games are basically useless... nothing to watch until the elimination round games.

Well pool games might be useless for the big guns ( 6 teams at best ) but for 12-16 teams such as Romania, Wales, Albania it's an exciting journey. Most of them are going out after the first elimination round therefore these 3 pools games are the moment they would like to enjoy the most.

This Euro isn't only about football unfortunately.

Preventing terrorists from destroying the competition is and will be a huge matter for the French authorities.

Its a real shame about the terrorist threats.

I was gonna be down there as well but friends started backing out after the bombings. Might still go to Lille if the atmosphere is still good but not to the stadium.

Wales' system is so heavily reliant on Bale. Without him they are going nowhere. Specially in the final third.

Olivier Giroud has promised that if France win UEFA EURO 2016 he will dye his beard red, white and blue.

Interesting

England
One that may pose a challenge to the uninitiated – Tottenham's 22-year-old midfielder is a 'Dier', like someone who 'dies'.

Eric Dier – Die-er

France
Basic school French should help. Dimitri Payet's surname sounds like 'pie-ette' – equivalent to the sound of Liam Gallagher from Oasis saying "I ate".
