Oranje more or less!

Holland deserved to win the European cup-umm yes,maybe,seein de way they played in the grp stages……..

bt lukin at the way they played against Hiddinks czars,its onlyrite dat they’re outie………

Worst ov all,sneijder(1 ov my 3 oranje favs along wid robben n van persie) disappointed me the most,always lookin 2 shoot from range n employing a very selfish game,clearly the russians had a lot more d-penetrations n created a lot more dangerous situations(notably 5-6 empty front ov the goal crosses,ov wich 2 were converted)……

n dat boy Arshavin (no wonder Zenit wr UEFA cup winners)…..stunning!!

As i’d prediceted in an earlier post on another site,never forget bigg guus…..

so i’d luk out 4 da russians if i wr spain altho guus never goes past the semis….

Earlier post 4 every1s viewing:

Who will win Euro-08

I hope its either Holland or Germany altho the top seeds to win would be:
1-Portugal(Team to beat in the tournament,Ronaldo) n Germany(Probably better than Portugal one on one,bt consistency against other teams will be tested)
2-Italy(Very strong on most days,bt lack a clear goal scoring striker)
3-Spain(Trinity of Torres,Fabregas,Villa shud come good)
4-France(Mix of age nd youth bt in their first major tounament post Zidane)
5-Holland(Flair nd attack,bt infighting nd star status lets ’em down,difficult group)
6-Czech(Weak in attack w/o Rosicky,solid defensive mentality)
7-Russia(Never forget Big Guus)
8-Greece(defending champions,considered outsiders,bt the only team to remain unbeaten in qualifiers)

Of the others, Sweden,Croatia, n Turkey r strong nd may cause upsets on their day,bt winning wud be a far shot….

As for the Germans i still back them n feel they hv the easiest route to the final (the Turks fite bt r left wid 2 few a warriors…..), n u cn never kno wot happens then (hope its nt a lame duck as the WC-06 final,decided on penalties,no more penalties 4 me plzzzz(zzz,o i’m nt sleeping already)…..
