Euro 2016 First Name

Post by RickyRosa » 06 May 2016, 21:03

Block heads post on the Europe thread about already starting his research for Euro 2016 has got me thinking about the torny big time and obv my team and got me thinking who's going to be the first name on your team sheet?

And why?

For me it's got to be our man and inspiration Gareth Bale (we might not get put of the group but he's instrumental in everything good we do)

well toni kroos has 2 star mans from the last 3 champions league games (I think) despite not playing that well (thought the imperious modric outshone him against city at the bernebeu) so he has to be an option as its obvious the opta stats favour him. its not original or surprising but got to be the tournaments best player, Ronaldo for me as 1st pick; think they have an easyish on paper group stage (Iceland, Austria, hungary) so he could bag 4 or 5 just in the group stages alone. if real win the CL and ronny has a good tournament then he will be a shoe in for his 4th ballon d'or. (could be suarez if barca win la liga and real madrid don't win the CL and ronnny doesn't shine in the euro's). your starting XI though will depend on the format; will it be pick an entirely new XI for each phase or will it be pick an XI at the start and only 3 transfers per phase?

Hummels could be a danger to Kross and his starman awards based on the ratings he received.

Any thoughts on teams to avoid?

Spain look like they've been done by the fixture list to me?

1st game - 3 o'clock Toulouse
2nd game - 9 o'clock Nice
3rd game - 9 o'clock Bordeaux

All the games south of Lyon will be a lot hotter than the Paris or Lille/Lens games, 3pm Toulouse will be a killer!!!!

Wiz doesn't the vast majority of the Spanish squad play and train in Spain which has a higher temperature and humidity?
I'll stand corrected if I'm wrong.

Regardless it'll be a walk in the park compared to Qatar in 2022.

I'd have thought the vast majority of the Spanish squad play and train in Spain between September and May, correct me if I'm wrong but it seems that the only 3pm games south of Lyon have been allocated to Spain, Italy and Belgium, the 6pm game for Germany in Nice won't be a barrel of laughs either, IMHO.

I think Thomas Muller. He will probably go on to break the record for most goals scored at the World Cup by an individual player (I know this is Euros :wink: ) so seems to deliver on the big international stage. Can also argue that Euro's is a lot easier than the World Cup.

That said - Kroos simply cannot be ignored. Muller scored a hat-trick at the last World Cup and Kroos still stole the starman off him like he did with Ronaldo in the Euro game (this was even before opta stats :shock: )

It's the South of France not South Africa , as much as I'd like Spain to be compromised I can't see this being a factor.

Germany may struggle though :twisted:

There's a reason why nobody works in the afternoon on the med' in the summer, it's not just too much good food and drink. Dismiss the weather all you want but remember USA 1994?, the afternoon games did for a few teams with bad draws.

I notice France have three 9pm starts?????????????????????????????????????????????

That's to maximise TV audience in France. Host nation have a tendency to have their games on late

Portugal in 2004 had 2 of their first three @ 7.45pm, the other was 5pm but was on a Saturday. KO stages were all quarter to 8. Austria/Switzerland and Ukraine/Poland had two of their first three at 7.45 too. Others at 5pm.

I'm obviously wrong, thought it might be an idea to point out that of only 7 3pm starts (of 36), 3 of them are in the south and they go to Spain, Italy and Belgium. But as nobody wants to watch Spain, Italy or Belgium and it's likely to be colder than Ilkley Moor in January Ignore all of the above. Janko Golden Boot :wink:

Antoine Griezmann.

Tony G has a modest International scoring record but home turf, easy group and you'd think the Sun would appreciate his style of play.

Christian Fuchs, for the team name possibilities, and because Austria will be Euro 2016's Leicester :wink:
