Setanta is (sought of) part of our Cable TV - just an extra $14.95 per month on top of the existing sports package. Bit of a rort but for two months its nothing really.

I will be thinking of you when Italy flog you 3-0 in the group games......:lol:

Lol, I will mark June 9 on my calendar. Hope your World Cup glory doesn't carry on. The book on Holland in the World Cup was that they were too young to win, let's see what 2 years does.

I would say France - their form usually oscillates every WC+Euro, that is 98 and 00 they were awesome, 02 and 04 Euro shit, so I'm gonna say finals for France. Interesting to see how Les Blues turn up without Zidane - first big tournament without him

If Ronaldo carries his form from Man U to the Portuguese side - look out. They've always performed well as they continue to have good talent, but now they legitimately have the world's best player at the moment. Of course they made the last Euro finals.

Really looking forward to this one. I cant pick the winner, at least 5 teams capable of taking this thing, Germans, French, Italians, Por-tu-gal even Czechs. I will bet a million non existant dollars that the Dutch dont take this out, they never fail to fail.

Also glad to see Englands finest not qualify. Such an overrated national side. When I lived there I got so sick of hearing about 1966. It's in bad taste but I took great pleasure in Croatia beating them in Zagreb back in Oct 2006 in first leg of qualifiers. The atmosphere was so charged, hair on neck standing up kind of stuff. Easily one of my best sporting memories, my heart starts thumping harder and it brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it.

TBH, i'd be happy with anyone other than Italy winning..........Sorry NCC1701D ;)
I understand.
Im still spitting over how Italy won against Australia on that day. To me Italy didn't win that game, Australia were just as good if not better - but that's soccer. BUT, I am of Italian origin so I will (and want to) go for Italy.
