    Euro 2012

    Not seen a thread about this yet so either, there aren't many football fans around or everyone is expecting their team to fail miserably???

    Have we got any optimism? I've got a feeling that England might sneak a win this evening!

    0-0 or 1-0 to us. I am just hoping we show some passion and effort.

    We have a score prediction pool going at work. I'm torn between putting England down for the win or not. I really hope they can do it but will be a tough game. Might go with 2-1 to us though

    seems we're a lot more pessimistic around here, we all have England down as a loss unfortunately! i'd like to think we could win something, sometime, but their recent performance tells me different...

    We won't concede many with the way Roy has us set up, lets hope we take our chances.

    It seems weird this euro compared to previous ones I think, especially the neg publicity surrounding it from things like that panorama programme, that being said I think 1-0 is reasonable, not going to be fun in that heat looking at it.

    The panaroma programme was blown out of proportion.

    I've bet on Italy to win it, and have Germany each way.

    England will get to the semi's.

    As with others, I am hoping we might sneak a win tonight but I know that we have virtually no chance of winning the tournament. I think if you accept we arnt that good, it's more enjoyable. Its the ENG-ERR-LAND idiots and the tabloids who always massively overestimate our chances

    Enjoyed the tournament so far though, Fridays games were the best. Gutted that Ireland were so poor yesterday

    I think the press haven't been as bad this year. They put such "downer" on Roy becoming manager, it seems like we're now expected to lose for a change!

    I don't think we'll play particularly exciting football but hopefully we'll defend well and Carroll &/or Welbeck will put their chances away.

    i think 2-1 to us tonight. I think welbeck is going to be our best player and really come to the forefront - like owen did in 98.

    I bet on Italy before it started - great call! Not much being said about them and looking at how they did against Spain I think they could easily do it.

    My heart says England but unfortunately my heart doesn't bet - my head does!

    I have a feeling whoever wins between England and France will go all the way to win the tournament! Wishful thinking, but you never know.

    The initial games haven't been that world class really!
