Euro 2016 FINAL - Portugal vs France

Recommended Posts

Gignac isn't exactly who I'd like to come on. France need some extra runners, not a striker swap.

This final has been utterly dreadful.

Sort of knew that though as soon as Ronaldo took his hit, it really felt like the final was robbed from everyone.

I'd have taken Giroud off for Kante, let Pogba and Matuidi push higher up and make more runs.

well- this final has inspired me to write a book and compose a symphony. Because it's been that boring.

Because every other Portugal match has been so breathtakingly exciting with Ronaldo on the pitch?

Poor moths. They just came to see the final. Half of them have probably been swallowed by the players. :(

France really don't deserve to win this on this performance.

If Giroud had to come off then yeah, pushing them up makes sense. Would've liked to seen Martial on wide for Sissoko, hasn't been as energetic second half.

If there's no winner in 90 minutes, I might well go off to sleep.

Sissoko is all over the place, best player on the pitch all game.

Sissoko been best player on pitch. Need to get ball to him all the time. Dread to think what the game would have been like without him :D can't believe I'm saying that.

Actually glad that didn't go in, I want penalties now!

We've went through 90 minutes of crap may as well get the excitement of penalties now. :)

Just think he's been looking a bit laboured in the last 15 mins or so, not that he hasn't been playing well enough. But I get the argument of keeping him on, just think Martial would stretch the defence more that's all.

Has Pogba got another game straight after this or something?

This whole tournament has been pony. You know when Wales and Iceland have been the highlight that this is one to forget. Football is so rubbish at times.

Oh crap. Ronaldo comes out to cheer his team mates on. Probably just wants to be seen or something :rolleyes:

Too many clowns as coaches.

England, Belgium and Croatia had really good teams and a chance to win even, but their coaches single-handedly threw them out of the competition.

Italy had the weakest squad in history and 5 best midfielders injured for the Germany game.

Germany also had injury and suspension issues.

Spain diasppointed.

When you add all of that up to some weaker teams having great coaches, we get this kind of football.

If Portugal win there's going to be a load of miserable ******** moaning because Ronaldo is celebrating with the cup. Not like he's the captain or anything.... :rolleyes:

I have an idea to get rid of penalties:

Play extra time, and if no one wins, the game ends and neither of the teams win the game. Instead, the winner is the next team who got the furthest in the tournament with the best record.

It'll promote attacking football and teams have to go win the game.

Can't see any problems with this. Great idea imo :thup:

If you made the teams in all knockout matches play the penalties before the match begins, you can get rid of extra time, & the side that lost the penalties would have to attack & score. so at least having one side attacking at all times.

Never had it for the Euros. Just WC

Surprised they haven't added it in. They seem to enjoy ruining the format. Maybe next time

Don't think they've ever had them in the Euros? Not as far back as I can remember anyway.
