    2pm on a Thursday for the England/Wales game is brutal. Luckily I booked the day off work before anyone else noticed.

    Can't wait for this, I'll be at the Wales/England and Wales/Russia games. The tournament can't come quick enough now.

    Drinkwater and Townsend join Delph in not making the squad.

    Re: Euro 2016 Group B Discussion Thread

    I would of picked Drinkwater over Henderson after the seasons they've had, but it's not a game changing spot in the squad. Glad Rashford is going, I've done a total 180 on him after his last few games and Sturridge's lack of training.

    Not sure why he even bothered naming Townsend, he only gave him 15 minutes against Australia whereas everyone else on the fringes of squad got to start a match. I think Roy had made his mind up that Townsend was being cut the day he named the provisional squad and was just making up the numbers.

    Here's a little tidbit of news to get you HYPED for the Euros, ITV have named Tony Pulis as a pundit for the tournament, so look out for his cackle if Wales win a few games.

    I don't think he was 100% on Sterling because he's barely played for City since being injured.

    Re: Euro 2016 Group B Discussion Thread

    I think Drinkwater missing out is unfortunate but not really a surprise considering Roy's love affair with Wilshere. If you're going to play him in defensive mid he would have been the one to go for me. He'll get steamrolled by any half-decent midfielder in the world. If we come up against the likes of France or Germany he's going to be so far out of his depth it's not even going to be funny.

    No doubt about Rashford. He deserved to go and if needs be he can play on the wing just as well as Townsend.

    Group prediction
    1: England
    2: Russia
    3: Wales
    4: Slovakia

    I like the final squad selection from Roy. Drinkwater had a great season but missing out for the Euros is unfortunate. We should top our group. England won't win the Euros but I'd love to see us go far. As we won't win the tournament, then I'd like to see Italy or France win the tournament. Hope Vardy starts tomorrow. Come on England!

    So I just got word from work that we will be launching a live blog for the England game tomorrow and I've been put in charge of the whole thing. Pretty massive responsibility, I'm pretty nervous but it's a huge opportunity for us to do well. So excited for the Euros

    1. England
    2. Wales
    3. Slovakia
    4. Russia

    Hope more than anything. At least we have the best player in the group

    I'd be hopeful of getting a win and 2 draws. Maybe a final game win over Russia to avenge 2004.
