    This Euros has been really good. It's lacked outstanding games but there's been very few poor games. People slagging this tournament have obviously blanked out some absolute shockers from tourmaments past.

    Looks like this thread has been far worse than the game.

    I dunno. I mean I wouldn't place it in the Italia 90 stink fest category but I don't think it will linger long in the memory. The expanded format gave us some of the best moments but I think it kind of killed the tension in the third round of group games and there were no real classics in the knockout phase.

    If tomorrow wasn't Monday I'd be working on blanking this game out.

    It has been decent, I swear people do this sort complaining every tournament.

    That's where you're wrong.

    But you don't actually watch football so your opinion is worthless.

    Far better than Euro 96 which had an absolutely shocking knockout phase.

    Comparing with past Euros is weird. Club football has progressed a fair bit since Euro 96, say. Are you disagreeing international football has become less prominent say compared to what it was in 96 or so in in terms of being top quality football?

    Euro 96 was a long time ago. Agree the knockouts were turd. My good memories of that tournament are purely Anglo-focused, as a whole I never felt it to be anything special.

    As I say. This one has been okay. Wouldn't go further than that but agree with Pothas that there's probably no need to moan about it either

    I don't know what point you think you're making.

    Thought this was much worse than the last World Cup.

    @Furball: That the quality of top international football currently isn't as high as club football.

    Yeah, this is fair. Last World Cup had great group stage and then the 7-1. Better than 2010 World Cup though.
