Euro 2012 X : Best fans

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Down down deeper and down
The mood of the Nation
Down down deeper and down
Borne of frustration

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Down down deeper and down
So they turn to incantation
Down down – less of a frown
And dance for inspiration

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Up down – do the Poznan
Neighbour linking neighbour
The fans are top class
But the players they still labour

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Step down keeper and clown
Opine the naysayers
But I say show respect
To the hardiest of players



Euro 2012 day 11, Monday 18th June 2012

Group C

Italy 2 – 0 Ireland

Spain 1 – 0 Croatia

Group C finishes:

Status Quo riff bubbling in my head!

A lot of disappointed people in Ireland, but I don’t get it.
Ireland didn’t play as well as they could have, so it’s justified that way.

But, they were ina group consisting of the 1st, 4th and 8th world ranked teams, and Ireland are only ranked 30 something.

Not amassing any points is perfectly understandable – it even happened to Holland!

Lots of speculation here too about the older players retiring from International football – especially Shay Given. Ok, Shay wasn’t at his best, but he played much better than he’s getting credit for.
