      so now you like both Everton and Utd

      It was only a suggestion of a website where you may be able to find some like-minded bitter people. ;D

      100m for Paul f**king Pogba what a joke.

      Football has gone mad.

      I can't remember overall a worse major international tournament in terms of quality of football played. F***ing dire the new format encouraged a lot of anti football allowing sub standard teams to take a page out of Ranier's blue print, sit back absorb pressure and hit teams on counter.

      Crazy how many surprise results there were towards the end. Germany beating Italy, France beating Germany and Portugal beating France.

      Still a f**king awful tournament though.

      And over the last 6 months England beat France, Germany and Portugal. Only friendlies but still...

      I like having more teams.  I think a European Championships should have more than 16 teams - we must send about that many to the World Cup so it makes sense for the UEFA tournament to give an opportunity for more sides.

      But 4 out of the 6 third placed teams going through wasn't good for the tournament. 

      Group games take up the bulk of a tournament so they should be the most exciting so should be protected.

      Not sure what the answer is.

      Was a classic case of teams playing to not lose rather than playing to win. Every team was too scared to try and do anything.

      Ronaldo - has this look and demeanour about him that I find very hard to like but like him or loathe him when conversations about the greatest players of all time come up he will be in them all.

      Portugal were boring and scraped through the groups before then scraping their way through to the final. Thing is, though, they managed  to get there by doing enough with what they had. If they'd gone all out for the entertainment factor they wouldn't have got through, no way. They done what they had to do with what they had and they've won it so hats off.

      As I said as was in work all day yesterday. Got home without knowing the score, and then watched the match.

      Sigh!

      13 hours of slog, and this was not a the game I wanted to come home to.

      I agree with 7KK7, the teams were more interested in not losing than winning, what a shame, the pinnacle of this competition, and negativity was the winner.

      Ronaldo, what a tart, crying when he's gets a boo-boo on his knee, how old is this 'man'. I did not watch the celebrations, TBH what was the point, can't complain about Portugal winning, as France did very little to warrant a win.

      What a huge shame, when the winner only won one game in 90 mins.

      There's a report on Sky Sports titled: "Portugal win Euro 2016: Fernando Santos’s men are worthy winners"

      I thought it couldn't be no more than 5 lines long, surely. Adam Bate has surprised me and has somehow managed to stretch it out to about 55 :D.

      The funniest is the history of this bus, owned by a company renting imperial bus for events.

      According to Ouest France, before being loaned to French Federation this bus was first to be used by Stade Rennais when they were in a French League Cup final in 2013 and painted at their colors. Rennes lost the final and the bus stayed at the garage.
      They loaned the bus again in 2014 when they were again in French Cup final, painted it again, and lost again.
      And the third time the bus was to be used by a football team, it was yesterday for France...
      Cursed bus.

      For all of the criticism of Portgual, Pepe and Eder were fantastic in the final.
