UEFA Euro 2024: Expectations?

I see Sturgeon has found a use for her campervan - apparently it's on its way down the autobahn to evacuate the Scotland football squad and bring them home safely.

Turns out wee Jimmy's purchase was made with incredible foresight....:laugh::laugh::laugh:
 
Scotland got the tournament off to a really bad start, they weren't even competitive. I sense Clarke was trying to be too clever, thinking he could set up defensive and aim for a low scoring affair, they were getting pulled all over the place.

Maybe my eyesight is going but I wasn't certain the penalty and sending off was as clear as the tv commentators thought.

Just seen the news RIP Kevin Campbell.

Penalty and sending off not clear?? Is that a joke??

Yeah sad about Kevin Campbell, he was decent on sky sports.

It's what we call "the African tackle" :laugh:
He charged with 2 feet and almost broke Gundogan's ankle in the process. Even if there was no harm done that was a straight red.
 
I hope England win.

But what I'm expecting is for them to prance around like a bunch of fairies, passing the ball towards their own goal 10 x more than going forward until the other team scores 2 goals and it's too late to throw on some decent subs and try to turn it around in the last 5 minutes... just like all previous tournaments!

And where's our best midfielder? Oh yes, sitting on his arse in England & watching it on the telly :mad:

I can hardly wait.
Oh just a minute... yes I can ?

i had 1 pound cashback from AllBritishCasino and decided to punt Italy to win both halves
because they boosted the odds to like 40/1.

currently i have my balls and my fingers firmly crossed as they lead 2-1 :eek: :eek2::eek2::eek2:

You have Italy at HT and draw at FT according to the ticket: Halftime/Fulltime Italy/X
I'm sure it said Italy to win both halves?
Maybe your right, that would explain why the odds were so high
Agh well we shall see what happens.
Probs a fisting on toast for me I expect. :( :laugh:

I had a bet on Italy to win, a few other stats , corners , shots etc I managed every single one, except I needed one more Italy goal, and they went from what, 20 minutes to the end without another goal, because they were more interested in tapping the ball around and wasting time. :laugh:

As for England. I hope we do well and go far, but part of me also isn't bothered if they don't as it'll end all the usual nonsense about England winning etc from the media :laugh::D

Wish I had not read that at the the EXACT moment I took a swig from my cup of coffee :oops::laugh:
 
Quite a weird thing..., it's London, and its East London, and it's Aspers Casino - a place where usually people from Essex come for drinks and play. But I only see a few people that look like British and support England's football team, most are just random people that think the television shows a football game today, lol.

A real life image here, as a contribution to Casinomeister's EURO UEFA football 2024 thred :):

... I'm not a burger man and last had something from McDonald's/KFC around 3-4 years ago, but Aspers has prepared some eadable stuff for Euro footbal fans and sales beer for the price of Wethspoons. So it's worth a try.

It's boiled chicken ?, then fried up and chucked between two bits of bread along with bacon. Lovely!

Beer at the moment is still served in the glass pints, and then later they use plastic ones only because of too many nutters in this area as they often smash each other heads... Security just said that these 'actions' usually start after 23.00, lol, let's see.

P.S England looks strong agains Serbia by the way, maybe it's because some of the players are from European football clubs Real, Bayern now?

Here are what the different sources across the web say right now:

1. **Squawka**: England is considered the stronger team despite some recent struggles in their preparations. The quality of players like Harry Kane, Phil Foden, and Jude Bellingham is expected to be too much for Serbia to handle.

2. **Paddy Power**: England is the favorite to win the competition and is expected to start their campaign with a win against Serbia. The predicted score is 2-1 in favor of England.

3. **The Analyst**: England has a strong historical record against Serbia/Yugoslavia, being unbeaten in their last six matches. This historical dominance adds to their favorability.

4. **The New York Times**: A supercomputer predicts that England will win 61% of the time, compared to 17% for Serbia and 22% for a draw.

5. **Football.London**: England is the clear favorite with odds of 1/2, while Serbia is a longshot at 7/1. The prediction is that England will win, possibly with a scoreline of 2-1.

6. **CBS Sports**: England is favored with odds of -230, while Serbia is at +650. The expert analysis suggests that England's strong squad and recent form make them the likely winners.

7. **Sporting News**: The prediction is that England will win 2-1, with both teams expected to score.
 
Yeah, the burger was good, it's something that you would have once again when visiting the same place. It definitively fed me till the noon tomorrow lol.
Unless you bring it up again, then you'll be hungry before noon tomorrow.
 
Saw the highlights of the England game on ITV's YT channel (all three minutes and three seconds of it!)

One comment in particular made me chuckle...

If Southgate discovered a small fire in his kitchen, he’d sit with his hands in his pockets, staring blankly at it and thinking ‘let’s see how this pans out for another half hour before I do anything’

Then he’d switch the kettle and toaster around and hope for the best

:laugh:
