Poll: So who are you backing for the Euro 2012

 Pages 1 2 3 NEXT
 

UEFA Euro 2012 championship is almost upon us, which nation are you backing for Euro glory. On the poll I added the top 7 teams from Europe by the FIFA world rankings and a space for other.

Being the optimist I am I'm backing my home nation England to win. If England don't win it'll probably be Germany or Netherlands.

EDIT: Just out of curiosity I checked the rankings for womens football, it's like a alternate universe where shit teams are good. Germany still dominating but North Korea and Canada are ahead of England, their male teams are at the foot of the table.

Germany

Because I feel like it. I don't like football that much.

What I usually do. Support my home nation (England) until they inevitably get knocked out then support The Netherlands or France if they're still in.

Ireland, by default, I suppose.

I never really follow football unless we miraculously start doing well.

Well England until they're knocked out.

Then my support will switch to probably Germany.

Mirroring the rest of these, it seems.
Backing England till we lose, then Germany.

I'll be very surprised if they don't win it. Reckon a Holland-Germany final.

I'll be supporting England until we get the swift kick out and then follow Spain....

Well most of them played for Liverpool, or so it feels.

I was hoping the last world cup final was going to be a Holland Germany affair. It'd be an amazing match.

And then left when they saw some sense.

No, but sreiously, I'll be supporting England. It's only right, it's my country of origin. I'd like to say they'll get to at least the semis, but I have a gut feeling they might not make it out of the group.

As for who I think will actually win it? I'm thinking a Spain - Germany final, with Germany to win it. They were damn good at the World Cup with a really young squad, and they've had time to mature and get to know each other better, they'll be a dominant force. And once England are out, I'll be supporting Germany, since I'm half German and have lived their.

It's a somewhat tricky group, but Urkraine are nowhere near as good as they have been in the past. France could cause a problem, so could Sweden but I'm confident of beating Sweden their only decent players are Ibrahimovic and Seb Larsson.

But Sweden usually turn up and play well. That and the fact that we've only beaten them once in like 20 years or something. Admittedly that was the last time we played them, though. We'll probably qualify, but I reckon it will be tight.

None.

Personally I'd like to see the audience rise up and violently devour the entire overpaid lot of them.

PORTUGAAAAAAAAALOLOLOLOLOLO

Oh, was sweden playing? Nevermind, screw my country

I support the team that is the most entertaining to watch, which is usually Spain and pretty much never England, who I should really be supporting because it's my country.

I'd love to see Germany do well though because I really like a lot of their young, talented players like Gotze, Reus, Kroos and Schurrle.

England.
Because I need my bi-yearly dose of rampart anticipation followed by crushing disappointment.

After the disappointment two years ago, the Netherlands really need to win this one. Well, according to me anyway. There's not really that much new talent coming in so this is probably the last actual chance for a while to win a prize again...

DEUTSCHLAND DEUTSCHLAND *stops singing national song because he only knows the one the Nazis used*

You ready to get styled on, Europe? No, of course you are not. You will be beasted on so hard, nothing can prepare you for this. Schweinstyler in midfield, Klose getting klose to goal up front, BADstuber outclassing hollywood defenders like Terry with superior positioning, you wont beat this suckers. You cant even touch us.

And England? LOL!

What are you guys gonna do? Have Heskey in the starting line up? Send Shrek (Rooney) in to disappear in another big game? Have Terry fuck our wifes? Its not going to happen folks. Go home.

Bayern beasted Spain, they will do the same in the world cup, and soon Bayern will beat Chelsea. And theres nothing you can do about it.

Vicarious Reality:
PORTUGAAAAAAAAALOLOLOLOLOLO

lol... Cant wait for Ronaldo to CHOKE THE FUCK OUT against Neuer in the group stages. I dont think he cried after the Bayern match, its not done yet. Germany needs to make him cry one way or another.

England, up until we get knocked out in the quarter finals like always. Then I'll probably get behind Holland if they're still in it, I like the way they play and I'd rather someone who doesn't usually win these things get the trophy.

Unless, of course, we knock out Spa... Lololol.

See, Smash your taunting is the reason I always want Netherlands to destroy Germany wherever possible. Badstuber's average at best he's a poor mans Gary Cahill. Who needs Klose when we've got Defoe, Klose he's past it. Schwenstiger who? Lampard and Scott Parker are better than Schwenstiger and Ozil combined. Ferdinaned will have Ozil in his back pocket. Chelsea 'beat' Barca which is half of the spanish national team.

I always will support Les Bleus. We certainly can't do any worse than we did at the World Cup two years ago.

I voted for Croatia because I felt bad that they had none. Are they any good?

Dags90:

They're not bad, they've got some quality players. They managed to show up England in the qualifying stages for the last euro cup.

ToTaL LoLiGe:

Well, I agree, Cahill is probably better. BADstuber isnt as bad as he looks though, it takes a real football fan to see his quality. Hes not a one on one defender, he stops chances before they develop.

ToTaL LoLiGe:
Who needs Klose when we've got Defoe, Klose he's past it.

Past 14 goals in world cups and 13 goals in 25 matches for Lazio this season perhaps.

Also, Defoe? Pffffhahaha. Dat delusion.

ToTaL LoLiGe:
Lampard and Scott Parker are better than Schwenstiger and Ozil combined.

Parker is amazing but he would struggle against the aggressive 4-2-3-1 Germany play. Shielding your defense from 3 attacking mids who are running all over the place is not easy.

ToTaL LoLiGe:
Chelsea 'beat' Barca which is half of the spanish national team.

Chelsea beat Barca"pass the ball from center back to left back and hope for refball"lona? What an achievement.

Portugal 1st.

If Portugal loses, which is likely considering we have Netherlands and Germany in our group I'm from Sweden. If Sweden also loses which is even more likely I'm from Russia, if Russia loses which is even more likely I don't care as long it is not Spain or Germany, but specially Spain.

But I'm realistic, Portugal will only win the Euro and World Cup in 10 years when Mourinho is our couch :D

what's with everybody picking england in the poll?
sooner or later you will run into your all time nemesis: penalty shootout.
and i am pretty sure it's gonna be either us(Germany) or Spain. i haven't seen Spain play in a while since all the football i watch is basically whenever the National team plays and occasionally my local team so i don't know how their measure up compared to us right now.

Heskey retired. Ha! So now you have to worry about the not 100% fit Darren Bent and Wayne "Do I really have to be here" Rooney. Scared yet? Well Terry has been hard in training since the last World Cup and has added more to his game, such as racist abuse and random acts of violence in big games. Oh yeah!

Support England till they get knocked out. Then I'll probably support the Netherlands.

I sorta half-assedly support Deutschland since I lived there a couple years and I have fond memories of parties centered around World Cup games. The fond memories had nothing to do with watching football, though. I'm not a big sports guy.

Also, my roommate is an avid fan, he rather rabidly supports our local MLS club and somewhat less rabidly the German national FC.

Seeing that I am neither Europeon or a sports fan I don't feel inclined to choose.

But if I were to choose then this option I'd support:

Vie:

Personally I'd like to see the audience rise up and violently devour the entire overpaid lot of them.

Well, there is a saying: ''Football is a game of twentytwo men, one ball, and in the end, the Germans have won.'' So in the context of this, I'm supporting my own country, the Netherlands.

Why not Croatia?

I never hear about them otherwise, and it's the country I know the least about. I don't really watch Soccer.

I'll support England until we lose, then hope the Netherlands manage to give Germany a damn good thrashing.

I'll be supporting Sweden because I'm Swedish, Ireland because they're nice people and Croatia because of their cool flag.

I will do as every Englishman has done before me:

Praise them wholeheartedly and endlessly until their Penalty defeat against Poland in the second round Knock-outs, and then boo them and throw faecal matter at them when they return!
