Euro 2012

It's bit early for a thread of this, but as the line up is now complete, the teams have been seeded. By a happy coincidence, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Ireland are in separate pools of seeds, so could all be drawn in the same 4 team group. If this happened, would this be "The Group of Debt" rather than "The Group of Death"?

Breaking News . . .

. . . Greek government halts production of hummus and taramasalata. Europe braced for a double-dip recession

Sorry - I'd missed that Greece had qualified.

Mind you, when you consider the public finances of the UK (as proxy for England) then the whole line up collectively looks ready for a fiscal red card.

Thankfully Belgium didn't qualify.

Bio - You should be ashamed. Smile

What's interesting is that some irish media outlets have said that the bonanza from Euro 2012 for the Irish economy. they are stating due to flights and travel agents work.

However, I personally disagree. I don't see that a lot of money leaving the economy will help the economy. I just don't see how. It's money that will be spent abroad.

yes, if Belgium qualified, it might be akin to when Serbia & Montenegro qualified in 2006 World Cup Very Happy

Since it's 24 years that Ireland were last in the Euros, you probably don't remember what it was like in terms of the party atmosphere, but there was a lot of money spent on a lot of beer by those that stayed behind. Helped by sticking the ball in the English net after about 7 minutes of the first game Smile

But isn't that grand? Instead of someone with an impossibly big hairstyle sitting directly in front of you munchkinng popcorn noisily all through the play, you'll be able to enjoy it. Wink

When in England, I generally tried to go for cycle when football match was on since the roads were so peaceful.
