And what did England do to deserve that!?

Have FIFA gone crazy? Did someone mix up the facts and figures from our last European tournament? Or has someone just decided it might be a wee bit funny to tell the whole world, WHOLE WORLD, that the English football team are the 4th, FOURTH, best in the Whole. Entire. World. Yup, the only teams […]

SPAIN vs. ITALY

The best, most important and most thrilling game in European football. Supposedly. Can the World and European Champions and the Italians give us a game to remember? A game of the ages? A game of goals and banter and decisions and ‘thrillingness’? Or will Spain triumph tremendously and win the way everyone has expected them to? […]

What (not) to say….after the semi-finals of Euro’s 2012.

DON’T SAY No wonder we lost to Italy. They beat the Germans! DO SAY It’s always good to see the Germans lose. WHY?~Never mention England losing. Always mention Germany losing. Where applicable obviously. DON’T SAY Portugal almost beat Spain so they’ll be easy to beat for the Italians. DO SAY Pirlo is going to be […]

GERMANY vs. ITALY

The second and last semi-final. Germany are favourites as most people have been enjoying their football very much so far, myself included and I would very much like to see a Spain, Germany final. However, they have an awful record against Italy, losing to them in the semi-finals in 2006. Italy were not expected to […]

Day 17 of Euros

Sorry this is late, but in between starting work experience/ crying myself to sleep/ staying up half the night/ crying myself to sleep/ waking up early/ crying myself to sleep, I just haven’t had the time. (Ooops, did I give away the score then…?) Our fourth quarter-final is ENGLAND vs. ITALY!! Italy last won a knock-out in […]

Day 13 of Euros

So, no actual football today- it’s the day when all the teams in the quarter-finals take a break, have a rest, train, whatever and make sure that they know their opponents inside out. Here is the schedule: Thursday (tomorrow)- Czech Republic vs. Portugal Friday- Germany vs. Greece Saturday- Spain vs. France Sunday- England vs. Italy […]

Day 11 of Euros

Italy 2-0 Republic of Ireland Spain 1-0 Croatia Game 1                   Once again, opting to watch the second game here. An Italy win did not guarantee qualification, although a loss did guarantee be outed. The Irish were outsiders by a long shot and actually may be happy to have only conceded two. The first was in […]

Day 7 of Euros

Italy 1-1 Croatia Spain 4-0 Republic of Ireland Game 1                   Evens Stevens in my opinion. (And, you know, the score line kind of says that as well.) Italy scored first and while it didn’t seem like Croatia would get back in it, get back in it they did. My favourite di Natale was brought on […]
