My daughter's birthday on the 16th, I've already booked it off.

Decent draw for Hungary, all in all.

Yeah, there is a slim chance of clinching a "not one of the two shittest third-placed teams" title. :)

It would've been better to get an unbeatable team from pot 1, who definitely won't drop points against anyone but it isn't hopeless.

Missed a possible banana republic skin avoiding Hungary there. :)

Thanks for the advice, as you may have guessed, I haven't had much experience in these matters. :)

Favourable draw for your lot. Not just in terms of on the pitch, but in terms of likely demand for tickets.

Have they announced when registration for the ballots will be open?

I don't think so, but it's definitely worth keeping an eye on their website. In fact you might as well register with them now and they'll keep you informed via email.

Glad England have avoided Czech Republic, a game where I wouldn't want either side to lose.

Well up for smashing Slovakia and in particular Russia though.

Hodgson already getting his excuses in 'a very difficult group'.

Yeah, quite embarrassing.

Quote
Hodgson told BBC Sport: "I feel good about it. We know all the Wales players, but what we know most of all is their team is very organised."

Oh wait, he hasn't said that it's a very difficult group at all.

He was just being respectful to a rival manager who happened to stand next to him.

Being prevented from watching NI at Windsor Park for a year is not a sentence it is a joy.
He is a Moyes dressed up in Ancelotti clothes.

Verratti likely to miss the tournament, along with Marchisio. In which case Italy have no chance.

Who are people fancying to win the tourney then?

All Italy can hope for is a massive last-minute match-fixing scandal, that always guarantees a win.

I'm going with Favourites France, or as an outside bet Croatia

France just have quality all over the park and I think as hosts they will be fired up

Pogba, Matuidi, Griezmann, Lloris, Martial, Coman, Varane etc all amazing

That Rakitic/Modric combo for Croatia just makes me think they might be dark horses

You think Lou Bega knocked it out of the park with Mambo number 1?!No but he kept at it!

France.  Seems to be a perfect storm of young players coming into their peak at the same time as a home tournament.

Belgium will do their normal of looking good in the group stage then falling apart in the knock outs.
Cordiali saluti, motherfuckers.
