Not Promising For The Underdogs

Not Promising For The Underdogs

Our most recent poll results are in. Everyone has had their say on whether an unfancied underdog can beat the odds and win Euro 2008.

Well, the results are in and it seems a mixture of apathy, probably due to the lack of a home nation participating in this year's event, a dash of optimism and also a dose of scepticism.

The majority voted that they 'Don't Care' with almost a 3rd of all votes cast(31%), which is unsurprising considering the pitiful qualifying campaigns had by all the home nations. (Thanks Steve McClown!) Second in the votes was a defiant 'No' with 29% and just behind that in third was an unequivocal 'Yes' with 26%. Only 5% separated these three results which seems to suggest that the Euro's could be a very interesting tournament this summer.

Wrapping up the voting was the uncertainties of 'Maybe' (11%) and 'Don't Know' (3%)

The final voting looked like this.

Yes 26%

No 29%

Maybe 11%

Don't Know 3%

Don't Care 31%


So now onto our new poll, 'Where Will Mark Hughes Be Come The First Game Of The New Season'. Come and have your say on this burning issue!

In a Months time, we will see who got it right eh? I think the Euros are there for the taking but there are some very good teams to beat if the underdogs want to upset the bookies form!

Read above for why we should go no-where near Steve McClown. If we hire him as manager I would scream. For some reason I would actually not mind Allardyce or that could be me being mental?!??!? The winers of euro 2008 for me will unfortunately be the Germans.

Well...considering I'm paraguayan, I do not have a favorite team to win the Euro...I just like watching good football; but I think France could take it.
