The *Official* Euro 2020 thread

  • CHB will be closing down as of 31st July 2021. It's been a brilliant experience to run the website for the past 9 years, however it's time for me to move onto different projects. Thanks to every single person involved, from staff, former staff, posters old and current. All support means more than anyone knows. Thanks for your understanding.

I know, I know, you pedantic fucks, it's 2021 but UEFA don't want to spend any more money on merchandise so take it up with them.

Anyways, we all know England will crash out horribly, and I'm going with Italy at 11/1. I might even stick a cheeky bet on Croatia to beat England at 5/1 seeing as we're so determined to fuck it up.

First game is Turkey v Italy in Rome, Friday 1400 GMT.

Why home advantage to Italy?

Already seen people talking about whether it's 'better' for England to come first or second in the group.

Some people just don't learn ffs.

like it’s a given.
It's a combination of idiocy.

  1. As you say, talking like it's a given we'll come 1st or 2nd.
  2. We've supposedly got the 'easy' draw countless times before, and in 2016, it was. . .Iceland.
  3. Like it's entirely within our power to decide whether we win or lose games, and the other teams are just going to roll over.
  4. Trying to blag an easy path through a tournament often backfires when you run into a decent team, a la 2018.
There are few more reasons, but yeah, it's driving me potty already.

In that division, Croatia and Czech Republic could well finish first and second.

You might have to fight the Scots for that third place.

I would genuinely be more surprised at us winning every game, than not winning any of them. Even if Croatia hadn't already beaten us in 2018, I would still think they have banana skin written all over them this time round, and I'm not writing off the Scots or the Czechs, especially with Southgate in charge.

We'll get some sort of clue by Sunday evening.

Scotland will be kneeling.


Looks like Southgate's master plan to make all the other teams get booed by their own fans only works on really fucking stupid teams.

Anyway, let's stick to football, eh? KIck-off is in less than 4 hours. Bocelli is singing Nessun Dorma during the opening ceremony, which ain't quite Pavarotti, but that should get some goose pimples going.
