    Well seeing as they got gubbed by the other weak team in the group hardly an unlikely scenario.

    I'm still raging our arsehole of an owner only got 5.5m for him.

    Haha yeah, I was thinking that. Looks like he's unsure whether to go for the suit/tracksuit option, and has struck a pretty terrible compromise.

    Pirlo with a beauty and Italy should be up by more than 1 at half time. They have Croatia's number.

    Italy having a very non-Italy tournament, they're actually playing well and not getting the results, normally the opposite way round.

    Backing Ireland at 12/1, could be embarrassed but I like those odds. We turn up against big teams, plus we're used to playing the anti-Spain system.

    Given's gone. Woeful travesty of the keeper he was.

    12-1 could be?

    Hmm, looks bad on the slow motion replay but Torres fair smacked that. Should have been dealt with by the defence.

    Beaten at the near post again to go with the two occasions versus Croatia too. Shouldn't happen.

    He's always been overrated, never leaves his line. Henry's handball goal was his fault. But now he's letting a few loose ones in too. It's really not what we need.

    Well, didn't see the game against Croatia so can't really comment, but don't think he's too much to blame for that goal. Torres should never have got the ball.

    From a tactical point of view reckon Spain and Italy are giving us the next big defensive innovations.
