    @seosam is this a private thread or can we all play 🙂

    It does seem a good idea to have a specific thread

    No this is the official thread.

    I thought it was the sweepstake thread?

    Maybe we should all have our own threads 😀

    I always find it interesting to look at the body language of a scorer. When Giroud scored he pushed past his teammates rather than celebrate with them. Tells me all is not right in the team!

    They don’t seem a complete unit anyhow, may just take them a few games to get into their stride though.

    It rarely is with French teams. Plus, Giroud is a self-serving egotist.

    Giroud is a self-serving egotist.

    Really? Seems to defend/help out more than most strikers.

    Many sub-texts in the French side, there has been a long simmering row about singing the Marseilles with a significant portion refusing. Giroud famoulsy grabbed the mic at one match and lead the singing. Benzeema isn’t selected but he said openly something like, I don’t sing the Anthem as I am not French in my heart, I play for the money

    France could lose this

    France could lose this

    aye, not beyond the realms of possibility.

    On another note, I just realised, it’s 2 through + 4 bet 3rds this year. An awful lot of hassle just to lose 8 teams! 😆

    Payet is getting sold. If he plays like he is, West Ham won’t be able to keep him.

    I believe that was what is known as getting out of jail.

    Defensive error 😉

    Payet’s thunderbastard helps to cover up a France team which were ordinary in the first half, and defensively suspect for the whole game.

    Dat hit, doe. https://streamable.com/grxh

    Well, I was a bit worried that Les Cheats might actually win this thing, being the home side, but unless they sort themselves out defensively, they won’t be troubling the likes of Spain or Germany.

    Well, not a great game to start, but the second half picked up, and I think we can say that winning goal was worthy of declaring the tournament open! 🙂

    Bring it on! England Russia the biggy the morra, no pressure like! 😉

    Spain deserve to lose just for this…

    DD, I wouldn’t write off France, clearly very nervy there.

    deadlydarcy

    Well, you can’t write them off completely…it’s their home tournament. But they’ll need to sort themselves out in their own half. I look forward to seeing them exiting the tournament…hopefully in the Stade.

    We’re going to do our best to hold on to Payet. We made a €40m bid for Lacazette which was turned down and he hasn’t even made the French squad. I know it’s paper talk but we won’t listen to offers less than £60m (I always find these kind of statements strange, if you don’t intend selling why put a price on a player!)

    Just be careful of the bridges on the way there.

    Why does it not surprise me they were from Blaenau Ffestiniog.

    1-0 swiss. good header, keeper should have been out, and poor defending.

    Might need to sneak a peek at this one, get the ironing out and classify it as “chore time”

    Even before, wales were looking like they were settling, first minute or 2 slovakia looked like they wanted to run over the top of wales, then thought differently.

    Would fancy my chances here if I was welsh! 🙂
