If they keep playing like this, I doubt anyone could stop them...

As of now, only Portugal could....

i guess the smart thing would be netherlands to purposely lose to romania to avoid letting italy/france through and possibly meeting one of them in the semi's

It may end up happening, not because they will let Romania win, but because they may rest some main players so Romania will have an "easier" task.

As of now, only Portugal could....

At this moment, I agree. Spain may be able as well but I will decide when I see them play tomorrow.

Oh yeah, I forgot about the Spanish! What ever the case may be, I hope we can pretty much say Italy is done, Germany needs to prevail, and Ronaldo needs to get injured for 10 years :ninja:

Ronaldo needs to get injured for 10 years :ninja:

Considering your avatar, makes sense you would say that. Just like your club's move of releasing the news of Scolari's hiring, when he specifically told Chelsea not to do it when Euro 2008 was still going on, in hopes of disturbing Portugal's team.

I guess some England supporters still hold a grudge from loosing against us in 2006 and 2004...

I'm going to predict a 1-1 in a pretty boring match where neither team will give the other space to move.

WHATS UP DOC?

Oh you must be hungover by now. :p :p :p !

Ps, Buffons reaction and facial expression after saving the penalty ftw.

No, he wasn't their "everything", and he's not the only player they lost.

Barthez, Desailly, Lizarazu, Pires, Trezeguet, Zidane... (and many more if you include those who left the team after winning the World Cup...)

They're obviously not the same team like in 98-04 so you cant expect them to play like that...

Do you guys think Italy and France both will go out? I do think it can happen!

I think there's a chance. France and Italy will have a tough game, while Romania might get to play with Netherlands' backup players, giving them an advantage... Like someone said on the previous page.

Holland is incredible in Euro 2008. I didn't see any of their qualifying matches but I'm surprised by how they manage to go past Italy and France. Amazing.

barthez.. well coupet is not as good as barthez but even if barthez was playing in euro 2008 the score lines would not change much

desailly... gallas is not as good but there is not a great difference between them

pires... ribery is 5 times the player pires is

trezeguet... the stupid coach could pick him but he did not. also henry is way better than trezeguet.

zidane... noone can ever replace him

sooooooo

zidane was EVERYTHING for france.

with zidane they got 1 world cup. 1 euro cup and played final in the last world cup.

without zidane... they are horrible.

they do not have maestro

anyway

TURKEY WILL KICK SOME DUTCH ASS IN THE SEMI FINALS.

I don't think that game could have been topped. Was brilliant stuff to watch. Holland got damn lucky, but how about the quality of every goal. Robben and Sneijders goals were simply out of this world. Holland, Spain and Portugal seem to be the main contenders for the title.

Here's hoping that France and Italy give us one hell of a game when they play, they've both got absolutely nothing to lose, and they may just go out all guns blazing.

Oh you must be hungover by now. :p :p :p !

I'm glad I was wrong ;)

When it comes to our national team I always have low expectations, because I used to have high ones as a kid and the netherlands never won anything... :p so hope for the best, but expect the worst eh :D It's just all the better when it turns out to be great ;)

Well, if you think Kuyt is an idiot and does not do anything right you clearly know nothing about the finer details of football.

Kuyt is such a hard working and clever player. He creates space by drawing players out of position and chases every lost ball, he is a superb player to have in your side as he contributes so much to a team that often goes unnoticed. Torres would not have scored a lot of the goals he has this season if it was not for Kuyt's superb work.

Robben is a good player, but is a different type of player totally; he is more direct and pure dribbling, skill and pace, a classic winger in those respects. He does however, only seem to have one scintillating game every five games, and for the rest he is largely invisible, not to mention he is injured 80% of the time.

Robben's goal tonight was class though, and Kuyt's was not that bad either.

Anyway, the whole point of my post is that Kuyt is not an idiot :p

Ah who cares, 4-1!! :D :p

I'm glad I was wrong ;)

Man we had a great night celebrating. I hope the Dutch keep this up, it'll be a pricy few weeks with all that beer. :laugh:
