And if anyone’s up for some Fantasy Football:

Or get get the app (Android | Apple) create your Euro 2020 Fantasy Football team and join the league using the code 324CJ6CZ08

 

I’m really not bothered about international football, and my interest is usually limited to checking no Liverpool players got injured after the match and also checking if Ronaldo scored again, but with pubs reopening and life being pretty boring these past 15 months, I’m trying to drum up some personal enthusiasm for Euro 2020.

 

I’m also (hopefully) watching England vs Croatia in a busy pub beer garden on Sunday 13th June, so have been sure to include some England players in my fantasy team so I can cheer them on.

 

My biggest interest will be group F though, cos I’ve had a pretty decent bet on Hungary scoring the least goals in the completion at 5/1 (bet365) so will be hoping the Scots can knock a few past Pickford cos they feel like the biggest threat to my winnings. No offence.

The pandemic's left me feeling rather subdued in my excitement for yet more televised football, given we've just had about 18 months of it with nary a real gap.

 

Still, I hope to muster the enthusiasm over the next couple of weeks. Once a couple of games have been played and things start to take shape I'm sure I'll wake up somewhat.

I'm hoping the Euros will feel more normal given everyone mainly watches them on telly.

 

Although I did have tickets to England/Scotland and a knock out stage at Wembley so I'm not sure how long my sulking about not being able to actually go to a major tournament is going to last.

Anyone picked up a wallchart yet?

 

Will this be the weekend to bag one?

 

Apparently When Saturday Comes have one free with their latest issue so I'm going to have to try and hunt down a copy this week.

Their tournament preview is always a good read (which Ukrainian player likes to collect Star Wars merchandise) and the TV review in the main magazine describes Ann Widdicombe being asked to comment on the Super League as "a bit like asking a mad horse to pick a colour for the spare bedroom".

 

You should always purchase When Saturday Comes.

Nice that the other two home nations get to move about 3 feet for their games (and enjoy a home advantage in the process) and Wales seem to jet set across Europe. How on earth has that come about, something to do with rankings, or just how the chosen venues have fallen kindly for some?

Cities across Europe bid for the rights to host games, and 12 were selected (later reduced to 11 due to Ireland no longer being able to host). If that national side then qualified, they'd be guaranteed two home games, otherwise they'd be placed relatively randomly.

 

Glasgow and London are host cities. Cardiff wasn't chosen.

 

The decisions were made in 2014.

So, France are surely the big favourites. Then there's probably 5-6 teams in the mix that have some exceptional players, but one glaring positional weakness.

 

Who's everyone liking the look of? I'd plump for the Germans if I had any faith that Low had decided on what he wants the team to do.

Two quid!  And you get the best football magazine as well.

 

Blimey! That's great and cheaper than buying the bloody Times on Sunday!

I'll always pimp WSC as much as possible - it's the One True Football magazine.  This months articles include Hull City, Carlo Cudicini, the rise and fall of Rushden and Diamonds, the hidden past of a club legend and the 2011 Nations Cup which "has been packed alongside other 2011 fads such as planking, Angry Birds and Owen Coyle."

I agree with France being the favourites. I think they've got the best squad & team. Belgium could finally actually win a tournament however I've got a feeling for Italy.

I presume getting the WSC wallchart is my only option now - unless some papers will do something on Friday?

 

There appear to be a few you can print off at home, this FourFourTwo one I think is the best I can find: https://www.fourfourtwo.com/features/euro-2020-wall-chart-2021-full-fixtures-schedule-dates-free-download

 

Although there are no tables for the groups. The WSC's one is cool, but was looking for something a bit more A4.

Italy.

 

Looking forward to the tournament, even though the Netherlands are pish.

I've watched pretty much zero football since the world cup and completely forgot this was happening. Finding out it's on this weekend is a lovely surprise. Looking forward to it.
