Never understood how Nolan became a big name. Maybe he is better on 5 Live where Orange/Green issues arenít an issue, but he is a terrible host on Radio and TV here.

Heís a long long way behind David Dunseith.

A lot of hype about Sancho and he hasn't featured in the tournament. That's probaly more down to Southgate and being consersative.

Hopefully Scotland can beat Croatia but they lack firepower. A combined Wales and Scotland team would be good, Wales have the forward threat the scots lack
Is sancho all that? If utd get him he may just be another martial

F**k that. One is enough.

Talk of Martial  going to Madrid though. They must be really hard up. I hope itís true though.

They should get rid of the Round of 16, and go straight to QFs. There is 36 matches played to eliminate only 8 teams ffs. This 3 teams from most groups going through removes the do or die nature of the competition

Imagine the excitement if only one team went through (plus the two highest 2nd placed teams). Two big hitters from Franceís Group could go out early instead of all 3 going through.

Probably be left a number of dead rubber matches in the final round of group games if that was the format.

Thereís always dead rubbers. Belgium Italy and Netherlands could take it easy last game as theyíre already through (Italy did that in 2016 v Ireland). Plus you might get another 1982 Germany Austria situation playing out a 0-0 as theyíre both through. Thereís always anomalies no matter the format.

Youíre nearly there, BH. Just a little bump in the road. Hope all goes well in the coming weeks and youíre match fit for that All Ireland final! Will be even better if your team makes it there.

Did I just hear the BBC Commentator say if England lose the Euro semis & final because of Covid it could go to Hungary? Christ that would be an uber humiliation for Bojo and the boys.

Itís something to do with the big wigs and sponsors having to quarantine before attending the semis/final. Itís obviously a threat that Boris will bow down to. One rule for the millionaires, another for the peasants.

Actually, I think they can do something for the bigwigs and sponsors, who will be in restricted areas. The issue is about the fans generally as the government does not want a load of randomers coming without applying the rules when John Smith, blue passport holder, has to quarantine coming back from his holidays.

I can't see how applying public health rules to foreigners is a humiliation for Boris, whereas an outbreak of Covid in London would affect him.

Yeah true. Makes you wonder why they persisted with playing it in numerous countries.

Didnít they move the Copa America at the last minute. Why not the Euros?

We drew with Hungary just before the start of this tournament. So does that mean we are as good as the world champions France?

Yep.

Scotland were very good. Just lacked quality up top.

If the Czechs get a draw v England, theyíll win the group.

I know why, but all the same, HOW could anyone vote DUP in the next election?

Their political game is really bad, no strategy of any kind at all. As everyone is saying here, it's the thing where they never had to earn it, or earn the votes.

Who is tipped to come in next for Poots?

Their political game is keeping the north in the UK. Thatís all that matters. Everything else is totally irrelevant.

Ueffa could have made it fair and deemed the match a draw. They had 45 minutes played.
Playing later that night they were obviously going to be affected
Absolutely. Seeing that is bound to have a huge effect on the players state of mind, weíve seen numerous times when players have suffered nasty leg breaks how it has impacted team mate, obviously what happened Eriksen was on a whole other level!
The game had to be finished, there is no option in the regulations to deem an abandoned game a draw. The Danes would have been in a much better shape (relatively speaking)  to finish out the game the next day. And hypothetically if the Danes had been offered a draw instead of playing out the game on Sunday, what do think they would have chosen?
For some bizzare reason the players  foolishly decided to finish the game on Saturday. Their FA, doctors, psychologists, mentors, should have intervened and guided the players to a more sensible decision.  UEFA had offered a choice of schedule without prejudice.

Then maybe they should redraw the rules. If they have no sympathy for a players health then it doesn't say much.

Did they not make France and Cameroon play 2 or 3 days after Marc Vivien Foe died? Both sets of players were visibly upset. No compassion at all, from FIFA
