I'm starting this thread early because it's such a big game.

I'm backing Italy for this one. They have shown much more fight than France have done so far in the tournament.

Same.

Wonder what the odds are, might lash 100 on Italy.

Eric Cantona

I can't call it, i'd say France though becasue before this started i backed them to win.

Hopefully Benzema & Henry start together, i really want to see this combo.

Italy are slight favourites according to the online bookies.

Alot depends on Mr Magoo's team selection, if he plays 2 defensive midfielders again then france will lose

Im hoping for the same as Al3x, Benzema and Henry play together then France will snatch this for me. If they don't then they'll be getting on the plane home very very soon. Im hoping Holland put out a schoolboy team and let Romania beat them though lol.

I thought France would be real competitors for the Euro, id rather they win this match then the corrupt defensive playing scum.

Will Holland throw the game... if i was Van Basten id much rather have to face Romania than France/Italy.

Tony Starks
17th June '08, 02:48 PM
they would have thrown the game if they was given the chance but theres far too much attention and pressure on them now.

I'm going for Italy. France have been absolute horse shite whereas Italy have shown at least a bit of resilience.

Plus I get 75 quid if they qualify :D

2-0 Italy

Im saying France tonight, about a 2-0 win, im sure Viera returns from injury he was in full training the other day, he will add stability to the midfield.

I heard he's out. He admitted he hadn't fully recovered from his thigh problem. Faggit.

2- 1 Italy

If theres a winner in 90 I can't see it being more than 1 goal

Just got a crate and a little 1/4 for this, looking forward to it the most out of any game so far.

Got to fancy Italy though, to be honest. I know they've been shocking at times but France just don't even look with it.

Farkin hell, Ribery injured, Abidal sent off, Italy score by penalty... Its all gone quiet in paris lol.

LOL @ losing Ribery, having Abidal sent off and then subbing a player that has been on for about 15 mins. Although Nasri wasnt playing well anyway. Benzema is playing ok though.

You know what, France deserve to get knocked out.

Their survival is dependent on them winning, so go fucking all out. None of this two holding midfield players business. On top of that, down to 10 men, why take off Nasri? Sacrifice Toulalan in the midfield.

No bravery. I hope Domenech gets the sack.

Pirlo >>>>

last player to play for me

I totally agree, me and my dad were sayin the same thing.Toulalan should have come off not Nasri. Domenech has lost the plot

You kno you felt the anger when Nasri was subbed off, this was our one chance to have a good look at him before he flys to the Emerates! lol

As soon as Ribery was taken off injured I knew it was game over, I agree with Messiah why take off Nasri? It's a pussy move.
But Italy will miss a couple of their key players in the knockout stages.

Well atleast Nasri will be uninjured and fresh for the new season!

Benzema is shit.

I don't think the manager has utilized him right tbh.

Agreed.

EDIT: Buffon was always and still is the best in the world.

Mister Lacey
17th June '08, 09:28 PM
Would have been a different game if Ribery was on.


Anyways time to sack the manager.

france are so shit. every match they run down the wing, put shitty crosses into the box and have only one man in the box against 4 defenders. pointless. manager should be sacked hes awful

The result of havin 2 defensive midfielders playin at the same time, some school boy error tactics employed by the manager.
