Thoughts, predictions, etc?

Who has got the group of death and who is going to walk through the group stages?

Thoughts: Portugal to win the whole thing. Good price currently too. Cash out if they make it through the groups if you're feeling nervous.

Etc: I've done a half/half bet. Romania to be up at half time, but France to go on and win the match.

May do that 4-1/1-4 thing again, if you remember from the last two tournaments.

England to limp out of the group to get knocked out on the next round.

Usual problem, we have our star players and so we have to shoehorn them into a system that they are not used to or suited to playing in.

Vardy has been brilliant playing as a target man for a side that defends deep than counter attacks very quickly. Not sure how that makes him suited to start on a wing in narrow possession side.

I'm hopeful we might be able to get our formation sorted but I suspect you're right about our eventual exit at the second round.
I think it's just a case of swapping Rooney and Alli around to prevent Rooney forcing the others out of position and letting them (Vardy, Kane and Alli) play their more natural game more centrally getting the width from Sterling and Rooney.
Our defence isn't good enough to soak up attacks to play on the counter attack so we're never going to play the Leicester way.

Edit: Am really looking forward to the tournament now though, although I wish the Dutch were there.



Suffering from a small case of mood poisoning, must be something I hate.

I think Vardy should be on the bench and used as an impact sub. His pace could make the difference if we need a late goal.

I do worry about our width, we seem far too narrow.
I think there is a danger that teams will pack their defences while we try and fail to pass the ball through them, we will inevitably give the ball away leaving us for a fast counter down the flanks.

I am worried that Alli is a red card waiting to happen, he is far too easy to wind up.

Still I am looking forward to the tournament, I will try and watch every game as usual. I also hope that Woy and the lads prove me wrong.
