England - Euro 2016 Thread

Recommended Posts

You'd have a small percentage of the Premiership TV money go towards it, say 10% at most. That's around £500m+ there isn't it? Due to it being under the Premiership brand. By having 18 sides it narrows out possibly the poorer sides from the Championship, with the potential of more bigger current Premiership sides dropping down there over the years. You then have sell it off in a TV deal where rival companies will see it as a chance to get in on the Premiership brand even if it's not the top division. Pretty sure that would already be more prize money then what the Championship has to offer, meaning clubs that come down from the Premiership won't lose as much money making it downsize to 18 sides more acceptable.

All hypothetical of course, but if the Premiership wanted to narrow it down to 18, that'd could be one way to get the majority vote needed from clubs.

Prize money is one thing but people wanting to actually watch around the world is another

I can't see Premier League having any of their money going towards anything other than Premier League!

What's everyone expecting from tonight? Italy weakened also?

Looking like Kane will start, Rooney at tip of diamond and Phil Jones at the base of it. I'd like to see Barkley get some game time despite not superb recent form

I'd take a non-defeat, please and not sure what to expect from Italy from this either .... Italian fans, over to you

The team we have out for this game is ****. Conte is also ****. You should really be looking to win the game.

Buffon; Ranocchia, Bonucci, Chiellini; Florenzi, Soriano, Valdifiori, Parolo, Darmian; Éder, Pellè << that's the XI that will start.

That is horrible for the most part. Why?

Sounds like it's Kane and Walcott up top.

Ah, yes, Walcott was the other guy mentioned in the article :thup:

Conte's said he's experimenting, wants to see some new players given minutes from the start, like Soriano, Valdifiori and Éder.

Probably still gonna do us tbh :D

Will probably be a draw. Under Conte we've been putting out terrible XIs, playing badly, but coming away with wins or draws.

Apart from Florenzi and Pelle not heard of any of those midfielders/striker for Italy.

Darmian is out of the squad?

Conte named him in the team yesterday.

I thought Buffon was injured also?

He had flu symptoms on Saturday. He's fine now.

Who cares who's in here?

Unlike seemingly everyone else in a country or club thread I could not care less who posts in here or what they say. If it's game related then I'll read it and no worries and if it's top bants I'll either smile, ignore it cause it's stupid, reply in a normal way to correct perceived stupidness or shake my head in pity cause they're not remotely funny *shrugs*

Why wouldn't I post in here? Am I not allowed to comment on the match? If you look at the posts I made on the game on Friday, I'm sure you'll agree it's at least a sensible contribution, even if you don't agree with it.

What's this about Phil Jones starting in midfield? ****s sake...

Defensive Midfield I heard. Perfect player to control and dictate the tempo :rolleyes: That's going to be our major downfall in Euro16 with the CBs isn't it. Expect us to be in games where we score 2/3 but concede one more :D

I reckon there might be too much of a gap between Jones/Henderson/Delph and the front three. You're probably asking Henderson and Rooney to find the space between midfield and attack, but actually hope that Walcott has as much of a free role as Rooney undoubtedly will, and that he's not just stuck out on the right, where he mig be isolated. Seems a strange set-up from Hodgson.

If we lined up against a decent side at the Euros with a midfield of Rooney, Delph, Henderson and Jones, I would actually turn the TV off /o\ :D

Odds of that happening is quite small I'd imagine :D

I know we've had few pull outs but that team just looks **** on paper - would probs have been better off not even having a game this midweek! :D

i really don't understand Walcott being used up front, and to think in-form strikers like Austin and Berahino didn't get picked :cool:

I have to say Walcott being even mention with England is shocking, he's hardly played this season, i agree there are other English players in form, i would be fuming with Hodgson if i was them

club you play for seems to have a bigger influence

which is totally wrong imo

Only just found out Pirlo isn't playing, which was about 90% of the reason for me wanting to watch this game. It means we'll actually be allowed to touch the ball I suppose. Even as an avid FM player there's at least 3 players in the Italian starting XI that I've never heard of though.

I think we need to see that nothing challenge on Kane again. Maybe some more analysis from Andy, too.

But the angle at which he jumped in conjunction to the trajectory of Chiellini's left leg probably saved Tottenham's season. Important to know.

These two teams are so poor for 'top' sides. I know the World Cup was disappointing but at least Italy had some decent players in it then, tonight though, jeez.

Rooney doing what he does best that deep, giving the ball away

why do England have this obsession with him playing that deep, todays line-up is astonishing

So is the Italian manager just picking players that used to play for him at Juventus

To be fair when i am International manager thats what i do on FM :D

Only Buffon, Bonucci, and Chiellini played for him at Juve.

oh,, the way the commentator went on it was as though everyone played there :D

Barzagli also played against Bulgaria in the weekend. Marchisio got called up, but got injured.

Rooney is chasing Lineker's record!

Our midfield 'gamble' is proving to be terrible selection. No control of the game, Jones doesn't know where to be as a DM and none of the 4 are great at dictating a game. Could do with Carrick playing.

Neuer did something similar last week

for a minute I thought you compared Neuer with Rob Green, but no one would be that stupid...
