    Still going ahead with it then? Total waste of time, clearly.

    Jerry has a pretty creamy group, in fact they're favourites I believe, but you'd think the winner will probably come from Group C & they'd preferrably play in orange.

    Italy to exit in the group stage is my semi-maverick punt & Spain losing on pens in the quarters my banker.

    I'll say Holland, Germany or Portugal to win the whole thing, would be happy with any of them winning it tbh, but i'll be supporting Germany throughout. Doubt Italy will repeat the sucess of two years ago.

    Its a miracle imo, that Marco "the matrix" is even considered good enough for the international scene at this stage of his career, how the likes of Barzagli are overlooked in favour of this idiot is anyones guess.

    Netherlands were seeded. Bit stupid really, the top seeded pot was made up of arguably the three weakest teams in the competition + the best team under the UEFA system (which is a bit stupid as it only counts qualifying games too). Then France came from the weakest pot as they've been rubbish in qualifying recently. Don't think it'll be quite as tough as people make out though, Italy & Netherlands should make it through fairly easily.

    Russia to win imo. Spain won't even make the quarters.

    Yer Frogs had rather the better of their games in qualifying, it must be said.

    & I assume you're jesting WRT Mother Russia; they're dire.

    Yeah, well, everyone is. Russia at least have a couple of strikers to sort things out.

    Supporting Spain. Reckon they'll buck the trend and make it to at least the semis.

    Hmm, Jerry to go out in the quarters for mine, at the hands of the czechs, thats my outside punt. Another long shot is the Spanish to make the semi's, should top their group, pot luck who they get for that though.

    Stick a quid on a Portugal v Spain final. There I said it, Spain to choke at choking.

    Interesting Citrus Fruit Loving (CFL) going on in here.

    I'm actually counting on Italy & France coming through the group and Germany winning the whole thing.

    My outside punt is for some more Hiddink magic and Russia making the semi's.
