Euro 2012 Discussion + Sweepstakes

Tue May 29, 2012 8:10 pm

I dunno if this is worthy of its own thread, but with only 10 days to go I thought it's about time. Also willing to hold a sweepstakes. The prize? Pride :P

Who do you think will win? I think Germany have a pretty good chance, but I think I'm tipping Holland for the win.

UPDATE: There will be both a picks sweepstakes and a random one. I assume you'll be entering both if you enter the team one, so if you don't, post here and I'll remove you.

Croatia - Ritadz
Czech Republic - N/A
Denmark - N/A
England - Sam
France - Tom G
Germany - Dingerbell
Greece - Stelios7
Italy - Ryanyoxall
Netherlands - SpinballEdders
Poland - N/A
Portugal - LJ
Republic of Ireland - D4n
Russia - SLC
Spain - Lagolfer
Sweden - N/A
Ukraine - N/A

I'm in for a sweepstake.

I agree, Holland does look good, but I fancy Germany to win.

England will lose to Portugal. On penalties. Like usual.

I'm really looking toward to the euros and it would be brilliant for England to win but I doubt it, with a bit of luck we could reach the semi-finals.

I'm going to tip Italy to win the euros, because I want to be different. :P

I'm going to throw the obvious choice in here, but I really think Spain are going to win it. They have some serious quality!

Darn, I was gonna' start this on the 1st!

I'll go with Greece, since I'm part Greek, regardless of their slim chances of winning!

Also, shouldn't this be in Corner Coffee?

The sweepstakes are random of course :P Although, I'm thinking of doing two - one random and one chosen. If that sounds good, I can start setting up the posts now. I'm also going to claim who I think will be the dark horses, Russia. I seriously believe they can reach the finals and possibly win. Holland to beat them in the finals, though ;o

I have:

Croatia - N/A
Czech Republic - N/A
Denmark - N/A
England - Sam
France - Tom G
Germany - Dingerbell
Greece - Stelios7
Italy - Ryanyoxall
Netherlands - SpinballEdders
Poland - N/A
Portugal - N/A
Republic of Ireland - N/A
Russia - SLC
Spain - Lagolfer
Sweden - N/A
Ukraine - N/A

Also everyone entered above will be entered in the random drawing, other than myself. So 8 for the chosen one, 9 for the random.

I'll take Ireland in the Sweepstakes... never going to happen, but they're the strongest (besides perhaps Portugal) nation which hasn't yet been chosen, in my opinion. In addition to the obvious "local nation" bias.

Nah, I was talking about the Euro's. I'm in a league with my friends and I think I've managed to build a pretty solid team.

Spain = Iker Casillas - Real Madrid and Spain legend
Germany = Manuel Neuer - One of world's best keepers
Italy = Gianluigi Buffon - As experienced and reliable as goalkeepers come

And then we come to:

England = Jack Butland - Spent last season playing for Cheltenham

^ Ah it's so "England" cliche isn't it?

My Euro 2012 fantasy team, with only one player from each side.

        Buffon
Cole Dunne Papastaphalopolous Zhirkov
Ozil Xavi Eriksen
Ronaldo Jelavic Ibrahimovic

Bench Sceczney Van der Wiel Harmash Ribery Baros

Not bad if you ask me.

My 15 man squad is:

GK: Akinfeev, Cech
DEF: Agger, A. Cole, Corluka, Evra, Zhirkov
MID: Van Bommel, De Jong, Modric, Ozil, Young
FWR: Baros, Devic, Podolski

I'm using the UEFA website fantasy team thingy, where you can only have two players of one nation. They have this substitution system which encourages you to select the players who are in earlier matches (not Cole or Young, for example), and if they do badly you can substitute them mid-gameday with one of your subs whos points stand rather than the original player. It sounds complicated but I'm not amazing at explaining.

We still need more people for the sweepstakes :)
