Could Spain be heading for an early bath with 3 draws here?


Some clown on here predicted them to win the tournament. Obviously wasn't me. I'd never say something that stupid.

That sounds very suspiciously like you did say that and are now desperately trying to deny it.

I think we've finally found a worse co-commentator than Ally McCoist

McCoist is the best commentator out there.

Portugal had three draws in the group and won the trophy last time.

Best teams in the group rarely win the competition.

Spain look like they're a last 16 side at best. They're right back where they were in the 90s now.

Portugal won the last euros starting with 3 draws...
That may not work here.

If Poland beat Sweden then the Swedes, Poles and Slovaks have 4 pts - Spain would finish bottom.

If both matches are draws (or Sweden win) then the Swedes win the group with 5pts (or 7pts), Slovaks second with 4pts and Spain 3rd with 3pts - it's increasingly looking as if 4 pts is needed to get a 3rd place spot.

How the f**k have Spain not scored.

Chesney seems to have spent the last 5 minutes lying down inside his 6 yard box, nowhere near the ball despite it bouncing around the goalmouth.

A proper forward eg Lewis Vaughan would've just dinked that over the keeper and tapped it in.

There’s no way we go home with four points. No one ever has in a 24 game tournament.
Now just us and Turkey are the only teams not to have scored right enough.

 

Testing this out a bit - what is the sample size of 24 team 6 group tournaments with 16 teams going through and 3 points for a win?  If the sample size is two, Euro 2016 and WC 1994, then I'm going to keep on worrying.  It's absolutely possible for all six third place teams to finish with four or more points.

It does sound quite like that. Weird that.

True. They just don't look convincing at all though, so you kind of have to go with what you see. I thought the huge amount of possession would help them massively but I guess not.

They are very similar to the teams Luis Enrique played in
