    This has panned out really well for Wales, could legitimately make the semis with the likes of Italy, Spain, Germany & France all in the other half of the draw.

    Amazing. Us lads are 25% of the last 16, hope Scotland are enjoying watching the party unfold. All the West Brom players are through as well.

    Stroke of luck with Iceland getting that winner, because as out of form as Portugal are, they're still one of our bogey sides and I don't want to play them again in KO football until Ronaldo is finished. Iceland have been one of the success stories of the tournament, but you've got to be pleased with that as a last 16 tie. Just hope we can get an early goal against them and get the kind of performance that will encourage us going into the nightmare side of the draw.

    Italy Vs Spain grabs the attention in the neutral matches, but I think Croatia/Portugal will be a hell of an entertaining game.

    Here we go again. Just wait and see what the GAWA produce. Gareth Bale be sewn up in McAuley's back pocket and everyone knows Aaron Ramsey is a poor man's Steve Davis

    But really thanks to Ireland we have at least a chance of getting a result, France would have just dicked us like the Germans but now who knows.

    And he scores goals...!

    Be nice if Ireland win, fancy an England/Ireland Quarter-Final.

    Although the prospect of knocking out the hosts in the quarters, the holders in the semis, and then beating Wales again in the final is equally appetizing.

    Either way, its coming home, that much is a certainty.

    Most of us don't really care about the Euros.


    The others just want England to lose. As usual.



    Hope Ireland can beat France and Italy beat Spain. Anything else would be a nice bonus.

    I couldn't put the pic up through my phone, used the laptop. Now typing up the rest from phone. The group stages were fun, now looking forward to the knock out rounds. Happy that England, Wales, Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland are all through.

    Interesting ties for the last 16. One half of the draw is wide open. Portugal or Belgium are my pick to get to the final. Hope Belgium make the final. The bottom half of draw is tough. Hard to predict on who will get to the final, probably Germany. Italy/Spain is the biggest game of the round.

    Predictions to advance
    Poland win in extra time.
    Portugal advance via penalty shoot out.
    Wales
    Belgium
    Germany
    Spain
    France win in extra time.
    England

    Just for fun, predicting the rest of the matches.

    Quarter Finals
    Portugal beat Poland
    Belgium beat Wales
    Germany beat Spain in extra time.
    France beat England on penalties.

    Semis
    Belgium beat Portugal in extra time.
    Germany beat France

    Final
    Germany beat Belgium to win Euro 2016

    If we play the same way we did against Italy. We can dare to dream.
    The most amazing thing about this recent conversation is that I've learned AON is even more of a waste of space than I thought he was previously

    I mean Italy were absolutely awful and rested pretty much all their starters, so I've my doubts that you'll beat France, but never say never. Certainly you lot have a better chance than we would have had against them.

    And he scores goals...!

    true, quality wise we simply aren't good enough. But heart and spirit can do a lot and who's to say the French won't have a bad performance .. Truth be told this is probably the end of the road for both of us PS but fuck it we can dream big

    Few tasty ties in the last sixteen for sure, will be a big ask for both Ireland and Italy to advance in my personal opinion even with the Italians fielding their strongest eleven.
    I'm sure we can beat Iceland but need to improve in the final third of the pitch that is for sure because they aren't in the last sixteen by accident they have played good football and deserve their spot.

    I expect Portugal to play much better than they have done in their last three games but I think Croatia will have too much going forward.

    I'd go along with the Poles, Welsh and Croats advancing although I'm cheering on McAuley having Bale in his backpocket.
