This is interesting. I guess it could go two ways Celtic (1)-it causes disarray and low morale or (2)-it causes a type of siege mentality in the squad, i.e 'us against the world'. We all remember what happened in 2006 when the big scandal broke at the very same time of the year!
Conor what did you think of Italy today they didn't look good at all,I know it was only a friendly but they will need a much better performance if they want to compete w/Spain in a week or so
I thought they looked excellent in attack in the first half but after Pirlo went off they stopped clicking. However the defence was very worrying all game but I hope that once Chiellini is in the team this changes, I can't lie was some worrying signs but I still think it will be very different next week.
Also 3-0 was not an accurate reflection of the game. Anyway I still like Italy and Germany also +330. I am working on some games for the group stages will try to put them up tomorrow, do you have any fancies for the group stages Celtic?
Grp A Russia +150
Grp B Germany +110
Grp D France +150
Waiting to see last minute injuries and final team lineups
Conor how do you see Ireland doing
Good work and useful work

I agree with Portugal to win bud..i think there is some definite value there...cristiano def worth a look too.
Recent Past Euro History:
2008 was Spain over Germany2004 was Greece over Portugal -- Greece was huge 200-1 odds pre tourney2000 was France over Italy
Starting to re think my England pick injuries mounting up also no Rooney for 1st 2 games not sure where goals are going to come from,i see joe hart being very important in 1st 2 games
