Goodness gracious me. How the bloody hell did the Turks just do that?
2-0 down with 15 minutes ago and in the blink of an eye they had not only forced penalties but gone on to win the game. It was one of the best comebacks I have ever witnessed and just another glowing example of the thrilling competition that Euro 2008 is proving to be.
I ask a serious question here – is this the best European Championships ever? I think it is. Euro 2000 was a great competition and I’m sure things were good back in the dark ages but in terms of modern football I think the Euros have been absolutely brilliant.
Indeed, they’re not even into the knockout stages yet and we’ve been treated to amazing games like Netherlands 3-0 Italy, Spain 4-1 Russia, Portugal 3-1 Czech Republic, Turkey 2-1 Switzerland, Croatia 2-1 Germany, Romania 1-1 Italy, Netherlands 4-1 France, Spain 2-1 Sweden and now Turkey 3-2 Czech Republic. Most teams are attacking rather defending and the ones that aren’t – think Greece, Poland and France – have been punished for it.
It’s absolutely sensational stuff and long may it continue.
“I don’t know whether he will wear our jersey. He costs a lot.”
Good. Now feck off and leave our club and our player alone please.
Milan’s persistence is admirable in a weird kind of way but it’s all starting to get a bit annoying. Especially considering Adebayor has never been quoted saying anything else other than that he is happy at Arsenal and does not want to leave. What else can he say?
Anyway, I’ve had enough. All that’s left to say is that I’m hoping Germany beat Austria 13-12 in one of the all-time classics later today. After all, that’s the only way the Turkey-Czech Republic game could be topped.
What do you think?
Have your say on Euro 2008 or Adebayor by leaving a comment.
PS. Anyone who thinks we’re going to sign this fellow is an idiot.
