congrats to them :)

i knew we'd never get it as yet, maybe 2012

but i'm sure one of the BIG Powers in Europe will get the 2012 one as its been shipped around to the smaller countries and the big ones aren't too happy about it.

Italy not hosted it since 1980
France since 1984
Germany since 1988
Spain .......... could get the 2012

Eggy, for 2012 we will have two strong bids - for Summer Olympics and for Euro-2012. It's highly unlikely that we'd get both of them, but I don't think they will dare to thump us twice.. In four years time, when the decision will be made, we will #1 European economy and the most dynamic market of Europe. We'll get Euro-2012 - because NYC will likely to beat us for Olympics.

Congrats to these countries, but it won't be as cool as Euro 2000. There was a good atmosphere in Holland at the time. We have really showed why everybody thinks our football fans are crazy.
