    The European Football Thread

    No one started one yet?

    Anyway, the Champions League final between Manchester United and Chelsea is going on right now. Score is 1-1 at the moment.

    And in about two weeks the European Football Championship will be held in Austria and Switzerland. Besides the Tour de France and the Olympics, this is going to be a pretty big event. it won't be as huge as the World Cup championship was a couple years ago, but I'm sure it'll be a lot of fun as well. I've included a list with all the matches. All matches are played in the GMT+1 timezone.

    Please, please let Manchester Utd lose this one. Ronaldo and his diving self need to be taken down a notch.

    Besides, this is a home game for Chelski. They should be favored.

    What, what, what? Ronaldo hasn't been diving much this season? How about that ugly person, Drogba? He needs to stop playing soccer.

    Christiano Ronaldo has been amazing this match.


    EDIT: And no, I'm not a Manchester United fan.

    I'll be watching. No Belgium means no real rooting interest, but I'll still tune in.

    He's one of the best on the planet for sure. But he's a still a flopper.

    I'm only following the Gamecast online. I'll have to watch the actual replay tonight.

    Terry slips on the winning PK. Reds take it. Gross.

    A flopper? Is that the same thing as a diver? Because I would have agreed about a season ago, but he's been brillant this season, pretty much without diving - and I respect that a lot. If there's one thing I hate, it's diving.

    And I feel bad for John Terry. Him and Lampard are the two Chealsea players I like. Also Drogba's red card made me cream my pants.

    Me too. Terry looked broken after the match. That was sad.

    Ronaldo's penalty was shit though. What happened there? Did he blackout or something?

    Yeah, that was a poor penalty. If I had to take an important penalty like that, I'd go straight to the ball and kick it as hard as I could. But I guess that's the difference between Ronaldo and myself. :P

    That is the best way to take one. If you kick the ball as hard as you can in a corner the keeper won't stand a chance. A lot of players want to make such an important goal way flashier and prettier than is necessary I guess.

    I can't think or a worse opening match than Switzerland v Czech Republic. I'll watch the Portugal/Turkey though.

    Well, the Polish tabloid press seems to be ready for battle.





    Does anyone have a link to a site that will stream the games live and that doesn't require to have anything installed?

    I don't remember if you have to install anything, but you can watch the games live on ESPN360.



    Croatia is going to be very fortunate if they escape this match against Austria with a win. They've looked pretty terrible throughout.

    I've been watching. Fantastic match, especially since I hate Italy. Netherlands have the best uniforms too.
