Tonight in Italy: Napoli vs. Juventus. Yes, the game that was cancelled for good weather a couple of weeks ago.

You read that right. Sort of.

It was, I was so close to turning off the stream after 0-2 and 1-3 but meh, I can't. There's hardly anything worse than losing in Naples so I was really happy with the 3-3.
Fun match.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Euro 2012 group draw in a couple of hours or so. Not as exciting as the FA Cup 3rd round draw, but nevertheless I love a good draw. Sometimes it's better than the tournament itself (cf group stages of WC 2010, of any CL/Europa campaign).

Group of Death anyone?

Pretty soft group for England imo. If they can't get into the 1/8th finals there they should just disband their national team. Ireland is fucked though, and so is Denmark.

ENG have good chance to get to last 8 BUT if they fail to win the group, Spain most likely await in the knockout stages. However we could end up with Fabio vs. Italy and if we win our group to avoid Spain, got to fancy us to reach last 4.

Is it just me or are the groups kind of unbalanced? Greece's group seems fairly easy compared to the groupd of death with Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal and Denmark.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Group B is nails. It's the obvious result of top seeding the joint hosts though. Neither will have played a competitive fixture for two and half years before the tournament starts either.

And the opening game is Poland v Greece. That'll be a thriller!

England also messed up by confirming they'll be based in Poland too - all their games will be in Ukraine. Against bogey side (Sweden), holders of home advantage (Ukraine) and classic enemy France. They could have done a hell of a lot better in my opinion!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I think that should be really doable for England. Although I have Sweden down as one of the possible big surprises. Groups C and D are both fairly well set up, Group A is a joke and Group B way too competitive. Meh. But maybe it will be good for the Greek national self-estimation.

Manchester United out of the Champions League at half time. After watching the game I would say that a 1:5 is more likely than Basel advancing, but who knows, maybe they can hold the result, stranger things have happened.

eta: and they are out. Who would've thought? I certainly didn't.

I know Fergie has come back from this before, but I think re-building this time may be too much and we may of just started to see the beginning of Fergie being knocked off his perch. He really needs to act like the old Fergie of the past and drop star players like ROONEY to begin with. He's gotten soft in his old age and tactially has made too many mistakes this year.
