    European Championships Turkey ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ท vs Georgia ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ช

    Honestly, you could do worse than just always hosting the Euros in Germany. Central, easy to get to for just about everyone on the continent, and they have a ton of big, modern stadiums that are set up for the average fan. Beer's good too.

    European Championships Turkey ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ท vs Georgia ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ช

    I think the Georgian guy at the edge of the area (who was also the last man) might like to rethink his decision to dribble between the two onrushing Turks!

    European Championships Turkey ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ท vs Georgia ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ช

    I actually think that weโ€™d do better if an opponent hit us with a full high press. Itโ€™s not as if all of our players donโ€™t face it most weeks at club level. It might kick them out of their lethargy and force them to play at a higher tempo Itโ€™s when teams like Serbia (who I would include as one...

    European Championships Turkey ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ท vs Georgia ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ช

    They wouldnโ€™t beat England, but they are more fun to watch than England. I would say that about ~17 of the 22 teams that have played so far. Turkey seem to be having their own goal of the tournament competition today!

    European Championships Turkey ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ท vs Georgia ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ช

    Always good to have a new team at the tournament. Uefa's 'Nations League Group C winners' spot is a little tinpot, but I'm sure the people of Georgia won't mind (they certainly look like they had a hell of a party when they qualified) and they've been stuck in a group where they'll have a chance.

    European Championships Ukraine ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ v Romania ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ด

    Coincidence that the first good Romanian squad since he retired has his son in central midfield......or evidence of a sinister Romanian cloning program?

    European Championships Austria ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡น vs France ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท

    You know who is awesome - N'Golo Kante. Not seen him play in ages because he missed the last World Cup with injury and decided to take the Saudi money, but dude still has it. It's like watching prime Alex Gorrin on steroids

    European Championships Austria ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡น vs France ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท

    Don't give them any ideas. It's bad enough that VAR checks every goal. If they checked every corner, games would last six hours. Disappointing half, that. France started well, then the Austrians came into it and created by far the best chance of the half. Only for a bit of Mbappe magic and some...

    European Championships Belgium ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ช vs Slovakia ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฐ

    If we win our group (no guarantees, but having watched Denmark-Slovenia, we really should from here) then there's a one in three chance that we would play the third place team from Group E in the last sixteen. That being said, unless Ukraine improve, it might be more likely to be Belgium now...

    European Championships Belgium ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ช vs Slovakia ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฐ

    The best part is that after 90 minutes of scuffling and messing up a series of guilt-edged chances - including lazily being offside when he turned in the header that was probably creeping in anyways - that was an absolutely cracking finish from Lukaku!

    European Championships Belgium ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ช vs Slovakia ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฐ

    Belgium were great in 2018, and could have won that World Cup if they had shown up in the semi-final. Now? Think they're a shadow of that side, with just one great player.....who's now ageing and struggles to stay fit. And Lukaku is becoming the international football version of Akinfenwa. I...

    European Championships Ukraine ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ v Romania ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ด

    Only getting to watch twenty minutes of this one because.....well, I'm at work and I've got meetings to go to. But at least got to see the twenty minutes where Romania put it to bed. Albeit bad keeping for the second, and Ukraine going completely and totally to sleep from the corner for the...

    European Championships Serbia ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ธ vs England ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ

    When Spain won their World Cup, they won their four knockout matches 1-0, 1-0, 1-0 and (checks notes) 1-0 (aet). They weren't exciting, but they controlled every game and were deserved winners. I think it's that style that Southgate continually tries to emulate. And that's fine - as long as...

    European Championships Serbia ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ธ vs England ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ

    Probably the least exciting game of the tournament so far - as most of us suspected it would be. It's win or bust for Southgate now. He's got one of the most gifted sets of forwards in the world to call on, but he insists on playing tedious, slow, defensive, possession at all costs football...

    European Championships Poland ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ vs Netherlands ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ

    I'll take your word for that - I watched the game in Spanish on Univision! I only understand about 1 word in 3, but they're great at generating an atmosphere and it's not as if English-speaking pundits tell me much I don't already know about the game!

    European Championships Poland ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ vs Netherlands ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ

    Great game of football that. Reckon Dutch are going to be a force this tournament if they can find their shooting boots.

    European Championships Poland ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ vs Netherlands ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ

    Five games in, and they've all been really entertaining (maybe not the second half of Italy-Albania, but the Italians playing with a lead.....kind of comes with the territory). Would be just like Southgate to ruin the run by sending England out later with two defensive midfielders and...

    Hungarians really coming back into it second half. This is exactly the sort of Euros game you worry will be a cagey borefest, but itโ€™s actually been a cracking game

    National News General Election 2024

    I think the buses were a minor thing. I think the much bigger lies were: a) We'll stay in the customs union, it'll be easy to get a great trade deal done (OK, not everyone said this.....don't think Farage did, but many of the Tory Brexiteers, including BoJo, did repeatedly) b) Above all else...
