Poland? They're shite and will be exiting the tournament right away.
Ireland will give anyone a game and anyone who thinks otherwise is a moron. When is the last time Ireland have been comprehensively beaten?
I'm sure a strikeforce consisting of Darren Bent will scare the **** out of them though
Ireland will always up their game against England, no matter what sport.
My ideal group would be:
Poland( The only team who I think man for man we are better than)
England( For reasons stated above)
Sweden ( If we get Greece it's a nailed on 0-0)
Home nations always seem to do better than expected, I think yous would struggle against them.
England dot have the cutting edge without Rooney to break those teams down.
I expect Ireland to do just as well as England at the Euro's if not better. England have an arrogance that always cripples them. Just hope that Ireland and England avoid each other.
That's fair enough.
Who are the 4th seeds?
Republic of Ireland
would make a mouth watering group
Germany > Spain
I'm happier that we're definitely avoiding Germany for the groups than if it would have been Spain.
I don't get why we're called deluded for saying "we CAN win it", because we can. I saw Kevin Doyle saying earlier that "we (Ireland) CAN win it" and he's also right. Anyone CAN win it. In 2004 Greece went to the Euros and used the oldest trick in the book - man-to-man marking, and brought home the trophy. Every team that is going to the Euros will be going there to win the competition, otherwise what's the point in competing?
Do I think we will win it? No.
Young Cleverley Wilshire Downing
Baines Jones Smalling Walker
Come at me bro!
Actually, my word! I know Capello is never going to play that but it has to be said that's pretty damn good for the future and probably what I'd play.
btw we're in pot 2 and you're in pot 4 for a reason...and we're only in pot 2 because Ukraine and Poland are hosting!
Downing is cack. At least select your best players. Adam Johnson is twice the player Stewart fooking Downing.
I was disappointed Adam Johnson didn't play more.
Why is Richards at RB constantly over looked?
Yeah was going to put in Adam but he doesn't get much game time at shitty.
Walcott is better than Downing.
Opinions, mine is that Walcott is gash at RW, better as a striker.

Anytime he has come on he has been excellent. Downing is disgusting tbf.
Adam Johnson loves the booze though. He'll start to fade out within the next few years if he keeps boozing like he is atm. Quality player.
Walcott is an incredibly tough player to play against, not a great footballer, but no defender would pick him to defend over Downing.
