It`ll Be Euro 2008 For Me!

It`ll Be Euro 2008 For Me!

It`s a little over a week since our Premier League status was secured; it seems like a life time ago!

If eight days seems like a lifetime, just how long will the wait for next season to commence seem like?

It promises to be a long summer punctuated only by Euro 2008, in which England will not be participating, and the monotony of sports that bore me rigid - tennis, golf, cricket and athletics.

I`ve never seen the point of athletics, running around a track desperately trying to beat like-minded people but if not trying to run a personal best!

As for cricket, no, the sound of leather on willow does nothing for me except send me to sleep, the time-frame of the game itself lends itself to hours of boredom.

As for golf, do me a favour! Grown men chasing a little white ball around the sun-baked courses, ending up in bunkers, let`s just say I`ll stick with the birdies.

And finally tennis, the sport of the upper classes, the cries of 'silence please` punctuated only by the chortling of a thousand chinless wonders as a lost-cause Brit topples out to an unknown seed.

So what are we to do this summer?

Do we while away the time or do we throw ourselves whole-heartedly into Euro 2008?

It could prove to be an interesting tournament, at least being in Austria and Switzerland the kick-offs will be at manageable times.

We may even spot Uncle Roy doing his bit as a UEFA ambassador!

All that remains to be done is to pick a side to follow.

So come on folks, nominate a team for Vital Fulham to follow throughout the tournament, it could turn out to be quite a laugh!

Portugal. Certainly not France or Spain coz thats just equivalent to Arsenal and Liverpool respectively.

Follow me and support the might Oranje!!! (Holland). They play attractive attacking football with world class players such as Van the Nistelrooy, Van der sar, Huntelaar, Robben, Van Persie, Seedorf, the list goes on!! So put on your most vibrant orange shirt you have and go crazy for the dutch!

Indeed, Germany it will be for me as well. Solid midfield, 4 exciting strikers and a very offensive back 4.

No, not Germany. I would probably go for either Holland or France!
