Yes. I know but he does. I was shocked. Maybe it is how they speak English.

To a Yank you can probably split up European accents into Posh English, Cockney, Scottish, Irish (if they're educated), the rest.

That was beyond unbelievable. I'm 100% certain its why he was subbed and not the yellow card as the commentator said.

To win a great ball like that and then pedal a tricycle towards goal that way was tragic idiocy. Look carefully, he never took his eye off of Casillas and became totally oblivious to everything including Cassano wide open on the left.

I don't find Lalas as annoying as many because he usually knows what he's talking about. Can't stand Taylor Twellman (MLS FLOP). I do appreciate Macca, and personal favorites are Martin Tyler and Ian Darke. Ballack has done well thus far presenting conflicting views and predictions to Lalas, but again - having played the game well, can't discount his opinion in the least.

Also, ESPN3's duo who cover La Liga are usually pretty good. Don't remember their names offhand though.

EDIT: Avatar changed for duration of Euro2012 - POLSKA!

Twellman might be a flop overall, but he certainly wasn't a flop in the MLS. Scored a truckload of goals for the Revolution in his day.

Re: Ireland v. Croatia - Awful defending from the lads in green. Sunday league stuff. And unfortunately that's probably their tournament done and dusted. Unfortunate after they worked so hard in qualifying to get to Poland/Ukraine.

Yes. Balotelli was bad--worse than Torres by far. Cassano was open and screaming for the ball and he had the best of Barcelona defense all day.

I predict  ENG-FRA  0:10

 

 

Sweden vs Ukraine

I won't be watching this.  I have better ways of wasting time.

I predict SWE-UKR  4:0

 

FTFY. I can't wait for the Ukraine game! There will be blood flowing in the stands.

Confirmed: all opinions discounted.

Half of Englands squad is Pool-players, which should tell you all about their quality really.

In general, hasnt been much of a tournament yet.

First group matches. Often boring.
