given how half our squad are crocked, the manager only came in place at the beginning of May and we've been playing especially badly, there is zero expectation that we'll even get out of the group stages. Hardly anyone is travelling out there cos there are no hotels and the public transport is non-existent and the locals are known to be hostile.

Consequently euro fever in England is at the lowest it's been for ....ooooh 30 years if not more

to get out of the group stage. England (and perhaps France) players might be well-advised to accept offers for throwing a match, to escape more drastic measures.

In Germany 47% believe Germany will win, 16% Spain and 3% the Netherlands.

In other news the sun did rise in the east.

3% the Netherlands

LOL

(Those 3% are either chronically impartial, Robben fans or uninterested)

Though some here in 'Schland see some disarray, Germany does have a good team.

France has to be a very strong dark horse, despite some key injuries, if not a co-favorite.

With Peter Schmeichel's son in goal, can Denmark be far behind?  ;-))
