Oh, come one, g.spinoza is still a bit grumpy because certain country starting from letter "I" did't get the tournament

Think twice and read better when you accuse someone of insulting.
Then you folks better start collecting trash in Naples, next chance is not that far..

Btw Nigeria could be really innovative option for Euro based tournament

UEFA states that All Euro-2012 tickets are sold!

Martin Kallen: All Euro-2012 tickets are sold 10.04.2012



All tickets to the final part of the 2012 European Football Championship have been sold, said UEFA Operations Director Martin Kallen. According to him, the Ukrainian-Polish tournament has broken all records in terms of interest in purchasing entry passes to the football matches, and the number of applications alone submitted for them was in excess of 12 million!

“There will be no vacant places at any Euro-2012 arena. There are figures that testify that all the tickets to the championship have been sold. We can get off this subject and move to the football itself. This championship will become symbolic. We have never encountered such interest in the Euro during the entire history of European football,” the football functionary noted.

He said that the most active fans during the ticketing campaign were those from the two host countries, England, the Netherlands and Sweden, and they have got most of the entry passes to the matches of the future continental tournament. The UEFA operations director has also emphasized that the European Football Association is intentionally delaying sending out the tickets, which will have several levels of protection against counterfeiting.

"The official presentation will take place simultaneously in Kyiv and Warsaw on 23 April. The new tickets will have several levels of protection - more than five, and we will start the targeted distribution for fans very soon after 10 May, and everyone who bought tickets will receive them by mail. I assure you that this way all fans will be guaranteed to receive their tickets to the tournament, and those swindlers who want to profit from fake tickets are hardly likely to have the time to create something similar in such a short time", Martin Kallen explained.

I don't give a bleep about football, I didn't even know that Italy was out. Really, I don't follow football, couldn't care less.

I never said that Italy should host the tournament. It should not. Italy is third world for these kind of things.

Happy now?

Well if you don't car about football, Poland, Ukraine, etc. Why did you bother posting anything in this thread if it wasn't going to be related to the topic in any way?

Following your way of thinking only Germany and few Scandinavian countries should be allowed to host any big event. They have all the resources, their economies are not ****ed up and organization will be perfect.
But wouldn't be such world a bit boring?

BTW
We Poles are strange nation, between ourselves we keep moaning and complaining about our country but when others do the same thing we jump on them and complain how dare they criticize us and our "great country"
But to be honest, I found it is true about UK as well.

Nah, that video went viral. You don't think road videos like these get watched 135.000+ times by road enthusiasts alone, right?

No, I've got it from an article at Serbian B92 info portal: http://www.b92.net/automobili/razno....&nav_id=602304

Title of this article means "Maybe our [Serbian] roads are not that bad". No hard fellings, anyway.

So what?

Besides, if you have a certain thesis to prove, you'll find enough arguments...

Exactly, nothing cures some humans' ego better than finding alleged failures/weaknesses of the others.

Yeah! Some national roads are in terrible condition. Provincial roads - the tragedy. Local roads, without comment, the tragedy of x 2 This is a good roads?

That road showed in the video actually looks like its constructed 5 years ago or something. I guess they used the wrong material or they used cheap asphalt.

DK62 is one of the least important main roads in Poland, though that's not an excuse for poor road quality.
