    Just curious to see who is following this last couple of games for the Euro 2008 qualification which play out on Sat Nov 17th; tomorrow and Nov 21st next week.

    Standings Link: http://www.uefa.com/competitions/euro/standings/index.html

    Matches: http://www.uefa.com/competitions/euro/fixturesresults/index.html

    For those who might be interested there are a couple of HUGE final games as Scotland could actually knock Italy out of contention with a win against them and England is just barely holding on in their group, not only needing a win against Croatia but for Russia to come up short against Israel tomorrow.

    Being a England fan I am biting my nails as our main striker Rooney is injured but they have recalled Beckham for the final game against Croatia next week.

    Anyways, for those who are interested in a country here is another link to all of them: http://www.uefa.com/competitions/euro/teams/index.html

    GO ENGLAND !!!

    Cheers all :chug:

    What a day. Not only does Italy clinch their group over France(probably the team I dislike the most in all of sports), England choked badly and doesn't go to Euro! Sorry to the above posters, but you know you don't like us either. ;)

    It is sad when you have some of the best footballers in the world seem to choke every four years for one reason or another, Mclaren will be axed and rightfully so; putting in a rookie goaltender for the most important game of the qualifications while at the same time not playing Becks until the 46th minute of the game are just two huge blunders of his campaign as coach. Never mind his tactical errors !!

    England's problems are much deeper rooted than this one bad coach however. You can not have the type of talent England has and fail to qualify for the Euro, lose out early in the World Cups as we have been doing for years.

    Oh Well, looking forward to 2010 :cry:

    Bye Bye Mclaren you Moron: http://www.bleacherreport.com/artic...To_England_Never_Employ_McLaren_Again_-211107
