The Euros

So...the long 14-day football drought continues. It's been over one days since the football season finished and all we have between now and the start of the European Championships is numerous friendlies and warm-up games. However will we cope?!?!?!?!?!?

The home nations not being in it is a bit of a pain, it was so forlorn in 1994 with just the Irish to follow. This time we haven't even got that. The big debate for us all what nation we are going to follow. The best way to get through it is to pick a nation to support. I am going with the Netherlands as they are ace (although their hyper-tough group means it could be a short tournament for me). A lot of Evertonians are going Portugese for the summer, this is due mainly to do with Manny Fernandes and Nuno Valente. Utd fans are doing the same because of young Christiano Ronaldo.

A lot of the RojoMierda types around here are going for Spain and there is the odd Italy, France and Croatia popping up. All in all it'll still be good but at the back of your mind it still niggles how England ballsed up such a guilt edged chance to get the finals.
