Grow up, nobody is here to argue with anybody. We are talking about the Euros, stop holding grudges from months ago, it is childish.

I will talk to whoever about whatever I please and that is the end of it.

Pepe the Horseman Where's all the hype for Turkey come from? Their recent results don't exactly scream dark horses.


There is no hype for them. Just have a smashing few players (Yilmaz, Cahlanoglu, Soyuncu, Yokuslu) and completely demolished a very strong Dutch team. And are in a relatively weak group.

Only an utter fool can not see that they have a decent chance of upsetting Italy.

In tournament games literally anything can and has happened. I do not see why Turkey could sneak a result.

This was in response to "a Turkish team tipped by many to be an an underdog who could maybe get to the last 8". So there you go. Of course there's every chance of an upset tonight, but other than beating Holland, in recent games they've drawn with Guinea and Latvia, and snuck past Moldova and Azerbaijan.

This happens every tournament, it is normally Croatia that get a lot of hype built up around them for no reason but this time it is Turkey. Turkey will do absolutely nothing of note, might sneak one of the 3rd place qualifying slots if they are lucky. Only a complete and utter fool would back them.


to get a top 2 place in the group?

Oh, no idea who said that. Don't think they will go that far but stranger things have happened eh

Italy and Switzerland are nailed on to get 1st and 2nd.

I have no idea, we are all guessing here, but I think 2nd place in that group is right up for grabs and Turkey getting it would be no shock

Winston Biscuit Starting with a cracking fixture too. This would have been one of the group games I was most looking forward to seeing.

A rejuvenated Italian team who are very unitalian in their attacking approach Vs a Turkish team tipped by many to be an an underdog who could maybe get to the last 8

really massively buzzing for this!

Gerrin there football!!!


Italy have won 8 on the bounce - with a clean sheet in every game

Italy to win 2-0, Jorginho to score a penalty

Think the Swiss are due a decent tournament, they have been threatening to have a really decent side for a number of years now.

I don't know anything about the Swiss tbf, so I am basing predictions on them being the usual Swiss

It looks like it might be better for England to finish runner-up in the group - winning it means we will face either France, Germany or Portugal in the R16 (unless Hungary pull a miracle)

Bit like in World Cup, finishing runner-up gave us a much easier route through

Ascotexgunner Christ we are 5/4 to NOT get out of our group and 3-1 to beat Switzerland. Might be worth a flutter though I'm starting to realise the cuckoo clockers maybe better than I thought.


Nah. We will be fine. Everyone else on here is dismissing us. We are more than capable of getting out of the group. We will need to play well though as it’s a tough group especially playing what really amounts to two away games v Italy and Turkey.

If we want to win it then we will have to beat the best teams eventually, can't worry about who we get and when we get them.

Of course it is. Of the four Turkey are the lowest rank with the Swiss just ahead of us. It wouldn’t surprise me if we finish 1-1 with the Swiss tomorrow.

I would prefer to play as best we can, win our group, have confidence and hopefully take that through to the next round and smash one of the other teams

Fear Germany the most by far, although I do honestly not want to see Mbappe in full stride against our defence :shock:
