please discuss anything regarding the european championship--

such as:
  • stephi, why don't you support germany? or ffs, the dutch?? :p
  • are the brits very hurt about not qualifying for the tournament?
  • spotted any hot guys?
  • pictures of your football-watching attire?
  • who do you think will win? any predictions? strong countries? weak ones?
  • watch and comment on the goal of the day: http://en.gotd.euro2008.uefa.com/cgd/main/home.aspx

:) :) :)

Frieda 06-09-2008 04:11 AM

so did anyone see the football yesterday?

austria - croatia: i was expecting a bit more football and a little less theatre from the croatians, instead the austrians started to play better every minute during the game, they gave everything they had. croatia can consider itself lucky to have won!

and germany - poland! i'm always impressed how the germans take every chance they get to score. they can play a crappy match and still win in the end with this quality. it's something us dutch lack, we get a million shots on goal but none ends up in it. that aside, i enjoyed watching the game, the 2nd goal by Podolski was an awesome one, from the book. the polish team did well.

Frieda 06-09-2008 11:56 AM

oh come on, doesn't anybody watch the tournament?? :confused:

Stephi_B 06-09-2008 12:13 PM

See other thread ;)

My money is on Portugal though :)

*awaits wooden shoe flying in direction of head* :D ;)

Frieda 06-09-2008 12:22 PM

nono.. no wooden shoes flying yet.. i still have to wear my orange ones for the match tonight :D

i have to admit, that even though i KNOW FOR SURE the NLs are going to win, my money is also on portugal.. they beat us 2 years ago in a very violent match.

i just hope we're going to win tonight against italy.. it will be tough, hopefully all the italians will be sent off with red because of their theatrical qualities :D

That's always so embarrassing :o
Only in the last World Cup they sorta played cool, easy, so I for the first time ever supported them.
What is even more embarrassing is that unlike in the World Cup where it was such a relaxed party feeling, the football-patridiocity has set in again. I was lying there in my bed fighting with me headache and outside they were going as if we'd won at least the final :mad:

Stephi_B 06-09-2008 12:27 PM


Oh, that's tough, Bella Italia! (Oh, I also supported them(*) in the World Cup - so I won too in the end :D, nay, but this time they don't get my support, not that they get too used to it ;))
Fingers crossed!! Oranjes go! go! go! :)

(*) yes I know, one should not support so many teams - but I just can't decide :D
In the World Cup I cheered for like 7 teams...

Frieda 06-09-2008 12:39 PM

^^ aw, sorry you were feeling bad! the oranje madness has kicked in here too, the shopping centre is filled with orange flags and balloons and whatnot, and the street my parents live in also has flaglines across.. and i just saw someone with an orange pippi wig passing by downstairs! :D i think it's time to bring out my own oranje attire :D

^ you support the dutch tonight, hmm? 20:45h sharp :D

Frieda 06-09-2008 06:23 PM

jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaa!! :D :D :D

omg what a match-- first that weird offside goal that turned out not to be offside due to some weird rule nobody knows about-- then 2-0, then 3-0.. against the world champion! omg! :eek: :eek:

Hyakujo's Fox 06-10-2008 03:56 AM

Surely the orange plastic hair should be dusted off for such a momentous result. :)

I did!! (Did it work? Did it work? :D :))
OK I missed the first 25 min cos I missed the fukken train, but THEN I came out of the subway, rushed around the corner to the first bar/cafe/restaurant (all places had screens outside on the street) and GOAL :D I went one block further, just in time to watch another GOAL :D, then I came in the dead part of my street (no bar/cafe/restaurant for like 400m) so I walked fast, rushed upstairs, turned on telly. OK then was the halftime break, so I took a shower, but then I was back, I drank orange juice to enhance the Oranje power (from my pirate smurf glass to join forces with you Frieda ;)) and some time later: GOAL :D

Oranje babes = good babes :)
I say go! go! go! they go goal! goal! goal!
I'm pleased and totally in love now and it will be very hard to stay loyal with the Portuguese babes.... ;)
Who's Portugal?!? Pfft.... OK they can be the final partners of Oranjes, but else... :D

Stephi_B 06-10-2008 06:30 AM

Btw I noticed yesterday that my new and currently favourite handbag is orange :)
An omen ;)

Frieda, today 18h sharp Russia needs support to crush Spain!! :D

Frieda 06-10-2008 07:20 AM

i'll be there supporting Czar Guus & his team.. the dutch are everywhere! :D

too bad Don Leo lost with poland to you guys ;)

Stephi_B 06-10-2008 07:58 AM

^I know! :D
(But with respect to the NL population in my hood you guys gotta watch out, there's a Spanish immigration wave going on since last year ;) also French and British wanna compete with the Dutch -- as they cannot on the green lawn elsewhere ;))

G would have never won without Podolski and he's Polish, have you seen how he jumped into the Polish ranks after the game was out (saw that yesterday in a summary, had to update what I missed on Sun) and hugged all his family and friends there - so cute!! :)

Frieda 06-10-2008 01:30 PM

oi steph-- 1-0 for spain! :eek:

Stephi_B 06-10-2008 04:07 PM

Oi, 4:1... do svidanya Russki babes :(

Frieda 06-11-2008 07:15 PM

did anyone see tonight's match switzerland - turkey?? aw man, incredible, a monsoon, lots of headwounds, pretty interesting and exciting till the end!

Stephi_B 06-12-2008 01:11 PM

^Just parts of it, on the go so to say.
The kiosk owner told me some more this morning. (Türkiye, Türkiye, yay!)

What's the bet for the on-going game Croatia vs. Germany?

I say 2:1, I'm unpatriotic today ;)

I should go to see the 2nd half ------->

Frieda 06-12-2008 01:21 PM

i say 1-2, i think you'll make it :)

here's some pics from yesterday's monsoon, i think it's amazing they were able to play at all (mind you, this is in the early evening, way before sunset):

Frieda 06-12-2008 01:23 PM

oi steph..... 1-0 :eek:

Stephi_B 06-13-2008 07:35 AM

Darn, I really should have bet all my money on that 2:1 :D

I'll be there & all for ORANJE 20:45 CET! :)
Don't see no result yet, but c'mon, France, they should be easy after the Italy thing!

Stephi_B 06-13-2008 06:12 PM

What a game!!!! :) :) :) :)

Frieds, you're already in a happiness delirium, I figure? :D

(Btw, the whole bar where we watched it was pro-Oranje... well, with the exception of my friend ;))

Frieda 06-13-2008 07:57 PM




:) :) :)

Stephi_B 06-14-2008 10:07 AM

They call it "revolution in orange" here :D

Stephi_B 06-16-2008 06:29 AM

Hope you come back soon Frieda.... (:()

....so we can discuss that thriller of a game (Turkey vs. Czech R.) yesterday :eek: :D :)
I think that been one of the most exciting footie games I ever saw!
Contrary to the Greece--Russia thing on Sat, I was happy my Russia won, but the football was quite low quality on both sides, only in the end there was some good action (from the Russian babes more :))

Stephi_B 06-16-2008 10:09 AM

Turkey Fans Fill the Streets of Germany

The party was unprecedented. Following Turkey's improbable Euro 2008 comeback win over the Czech Republic on Sunday night, Germany's Turkish community took their celebration onto the streets.

The centers of Germany's big cities were transformed into seas of Turkish flags on Sunday night as tens of thousands of football fans took to the streets to celebrate Turkey's improbable 3-2 comeback victory against the Czech Republic. In Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne and other cities, Turkey fans paraded through streets in car conveys, honking their horns and shouting "Türkiye, Türkiye" after the final whistle of the EURO 2008 game on Sunday.

On Berlin's famous Kurfürstendamm avenue, traffic came to a standstill as 25,000 fans celebrated their team's win. "I've never seen anything like this in my life," a jubilant Turkey fan told the German news agency DPA. In Kreuzberg and Neukölln, two other parts of the city with large Turkish populations, ecstatic fans danced on the streets and set off firecrackers. A police spokeswoman in the Kreuzberg district said: "There's a total party atmosphere."

The mood was very different earlier in the evening. Many Turkish fans had already resigned themselves to their team's going out in the group stage. At a public screening in Hamburg many of the nearly 5,000 Turkish fans had gone home early while their team was losing 2-0.

But an amazing comeback by Turkey -- three goals in the last 15 minutes -- secured victory and a place in the quarterfinals. "It's like a miracle," said 20-year-old Okan Türk, while celebrating the victory with friends in Hamburg.


Some piccies here and here and here :)

Tonight I will!!! :D *trying to remember where I have my black-red-golden silicon bracelet*
To the uninitiated ear I might sound Austrian if I speak my dialect
BUT: I am NO Austrian at all!!!
And my compassion goes out to Vanya who lives just a stone-throw from the Vienna fan-mile... i.e. centre of possible Ösi-madness.
So dear Austrian team: Loose, or my friend does not get his well-deserved sleep, OK? ;)

Frieda 06-17-2008 04:55 AM

congrats! :D

Stephi_B 06-17-2008 06:01 AM

:D :D

Ballack = good babe! :)

And I've never before seen that the trainer gets thrown from the field :eek:
I thought I've really seen all after that on Sun where close to the end the Turkish goalkeeper got a red card & was replaced by a fieldplayer (so good there was no penalty shooting!!!)

Anyway, Germany will get a major asskick by Portugal... unless they find their fire of 2006 again and give like 200% more than in the last games.

Stephi_B 06-17-2008 07:27 AM

What are your guesses for tonight?

I say 3:2 for Netherlands
and 1:1 in the other game.

Frieda 06-17-2008 06:09 PM

^you guessed wrong :p

quite a boring game from the NLs though, i even got distracted (watched it at home) and started doing dishes & laundry :o

good thing the analog signal from the pub downstairs in the street is 1,5 seconds faster than my digital, so as soon as i heard cheering i ran to my tv and watched the goals being scored :D

Stephi_B 06-18-2008 07:32 AM


Yes, football prophecy never works twice in a row... just like winning at sth like pool billard, table football or so.

Puh, then I haven't missed anything, only saw the last like 3 min.

So... it is time... to announce... my QUARTER FINAL BABES

Look, there's a new Registered User, Soccer-Euro!

I keep my fingers crossed for the Turkish team. :p

Stephi_B 06-18-2008 12:17 PM

^He/she/it better does only post Euro 2008 related spam ;)

Ah, the Ural-Altaic language family sticks together :)

YsaPur EsChomuw 06-18-2008 12:22 PM

Yeah, blood will tell, eventually.
Ural-Altaic must overcome Europe! :D
