    My money is on Germany, their midfield is incredible.
     
  4. Spain or Germany, hands down. ;)
     
  5. I won't be too popular saying this but I want Holland to win

    Can only agree. But thats only sentiment :)

    Germany and Spain have by far the strongest teams. Although I doubt if Spain can really impress with their forwards. Germany is strong alround and like Ross said an exceptional midfield.

    Who are the outsiders? Sweden? England?
     
  7. England will have to finish top of there group of Group D to have any chance of winning. Both teams who progess from Group A will lose in quarter finals.

    It will be touch and go for Sweden, it all depends on which France turns up. If France have a repeat of the world cup then they have no chance. Croatia are a decent side so I can't predict who will get through .

    I hope Spain will suffer from the France syndrome this time. It would be an incredible achievement if they can win their third tournament in a row though.

    In two months from now we will have an epic football war with Germany. Only two months to go :)

    I often ask myself what on earth De Jong was thinking at that specific moment. Did he completely overlooked the other players?
     
  14. I think he had a pretty clear mindset on what he wanted to do, the ball is nowhere near him,

    Lets hope De Jong and this character don't meet eachother on the pitch. Another nutcase.

    Or even worse, him:

  16. Atleast Zlatan has his skills so he can be forgotten slightly but the dude below should have a leash on him.

    And let´s not forget the two idiots/actors Pepe and Busquets.... morons both of them.

    I think we need a separate thread for the All-Not-So-Star-Team-2012 :)
