Euro 2020 - Congrats Italy

disperse and recoagulate

Recommended Posts

So the real question is which ex-player is going to become a star pundit during the tournament? There's usually somebody who gets rave reviews, who do we think it could be this time (I fully admit I don't know the BBC/ITV line-ups)?

Weirdly, I'm looking forward to the actual football.  There's not a massive amount of filler there.  Turkey vs Italy is two good sides to kick off the tournament.  Just a shame that the tournament format has dampened some of the usual excitement when you see a single country hosting.  Now its basically the Champions League group stages.

I'm very excited for it. Before the last tournament I was a big critic of the 24 team format due to the reduced jeopardy in the group stage, but I do love how it gives teams that would have previously struggled to qualify a great chance of taking part and springing a surprise (Iceland and Wales last time out). There's also no doubting the logic of it in the context of Europe post the break up of Yugoslavia and the USSR.

Aye, but you might as well go 32 > 16 > 8 > 4 > 2 > 1 as fuck about with this 24 team format, right? 

I don't mind, it was used in the World Cup from 1986 and was fine - 1st two in group automatically qualify, and 4 of the best 3rd-placers out of the 6.


The only issue is that they're only 50-odd nations under UEFA so going 32 would start to make qualifiers pointless.
