Ladies and Gents, girls and boys, Spurs fans and Others: May I present to you, THE EURO 2008 GAME!
Players are: me, Saarfend, Tilton, Berlin, Kipper, Woody, Andy B, and Iron, and everybody has promised to play nicely ;)
I’ve made the two lists from bookies odds (as found from a google search at http:// soccerlens.com/the-odds-on-euro-2008/4208/), as I thought that was fairer than group standings because of the relative group difficulty levels. Everybody must now give me one number between 1 and 8, and one letter A-H. I’ll take the remaining two teams.
N.B these lists are in odds order, and have been numbered/lettered at random.
Germany (11-2) Netherlands (6-1) Italy (7-1) Spain (7-1) France (12-1) Portugal (12-1) Czech Republic (20-1) Switzerland (25-1)
Sweden (25-1) (note: as Switzerland and Sweden had the same odds I checked William Hill to see which had better odds. As Switzerland did they went in the higher tier) Romania (28-1) Croatia (33-1) Greece (50-1) Poland (50-1) Austria (66-1) Russia (150-1) Turkey (500-1)
I’m looking forward to the tournament again now, good times!
