Why England will win Euro 2008

A prediction worthy of Old Moore's Almanack.

The recent steady flow of talented young stars has turned into an veritable torrent, with a new teenage hero seemingly unearthed every week.

And future England manager Alan Shearer must be rubbing his sensible hands together in glee at the pot of gold maturing before his very eyes.

The dangers of long-range forecasting. Martin Taylor - on loan at Norwich, Neil Mellor - now with Preston, Michael Tonge - still with Sheffield United.

I liked this bit

"Ashley Cole and Shaun Wright-Phillips will be devastating wing-backs, whose surging runs will leave Italians crying into their capuccinos and Germans blubbing in their bratwursts."

Though not as much as this:

"England will have so much talent up front it will be embarrassing, and other teams may concede games before kick-off to avoid the humiliation on the pitch."

Liked the linked stories too - "Well dent Pars Euro hopes"

Difference between England and Scotland - we're both ***e - but we KNOW we are.....

(though I do wonder - some of the comments after the Italy game didn't sound like we'd just lost at home, something that even bad Scottish teams are not in the habit of doing over the decades)
