Pohjanpalo is one of us. Eisern Union Berlin! But a sad thing happened: I hope that the Danish player will get well soon. Belgium and England are my guesses for the title. I am afraid that Germany will suck. Especially in that heavy group with Portugal and France. What are your guesses? Who will become European Champion?

I mean I want to say North Macedonia but on the other hand the Nations League was probably Platini's brainchild so I dunno if I actually want those teams to be successful.

Qatar was a questionable decision, to put it mildly.

As for Kazakhstan, if you're referring to its membership in UEFA, there is a small part in Europe; it's less egregious, geographically, than Israel playing in Europe, Australia in Asia, or Guyana and Suriname in North America.

As for how Germany will do, I guess we'll see how much that team misses Mesut Özil.

I believe in England. They have the best fans. But remember 1996: Gareth Southgate. The whole of England is with you... And it is safe.... Safe! We have the best goalkeepers, we never lose a penalty shootout. In 2013 whilst visiting Wembley we had a great guide. Any Germans here? We raised our hands. Please grant us the title of 1966... The ball was in... No, it was not, but we graciously grant you the title since you are the motherland of football :) .

People in my country tend to support England because of all the overpaid, overhyped stars in the EPL, or maybe other countries that have players in the EPL like Spain, Portugal, France, Brazil, Argentina etc.

In all global competitions I therefore support Germany in order to be as far away from that nonsense as possible. It also helps that my family once came from there.

I can understand your point of view. I just like England for their humour, Liverpool and the Trek players. Trek Continentals in 2014 there were a blast. I am afraid, that we have ourselves never met in person, cause Tobias or Ben told me what a nice person you are. Fritz Meißner... There cannot be any more German name :) .
I am out of 2E, it is dull and stain. I have been playing the same Romulan deck in High Level events since 2013. I apprecciate Tjark's and the rest of the others work but it cannot match 1E. But I will try your format. I have only heard good from that as well.

German Football sucks! I simply can't wait until the Jogi Löw era is over. Let's hope Hansi Flick can come up with a better strategy than to go for ball posession, hold it in the mid-field until every defender is in position only to smash their heads against a brick wall and lose the ball before they even reach the penalty box.

I've been out of touch with football for too long to know that there was unhappiness about the German team.

You know what this means though, right? They finish second in their group and then beat everyone in the knockouts 4-0 until they lose in the finals to Brazil or, um, Spain.

Unrelated, how is Thomas Mueller still playing!?

I live in London now, so there must be something good about the country :).

Thanks! My heritage is inescapable because of the name. My father's first name is Friedrich so perhaps that is even more German, but he also goes by Fritz :).

Awesome! Right now I am working on two preconstructed decks as an easy starting point. The big problem is that it is easy to create an entire bridge crew that cannot stopped, or cannot be randomly selected etc. But at least these decks are fun to play against each other.

Yeah @nobthehobbit , Nordmazedonien my ass :) .

Germany played fantastic... I was so surprised... If we play that way against Hungary it is not Germany but either the reigning European Champion or the reigning World Champion that will be kicked out but not us.

They should not discuss about Corbett being reinstated but James Hoskin. His soccer threads were always full of joy and excitement. But it seems that you boring people are not interested in soccer :) .

Either way, Deutschland is back!

I don't have strong feelings about soccer one way or the other, but it's my understanding that James left on his own. AFAIK he's not banned by anyone on this side of things.
