  1. Well we have arrived at the final match of Euro 2016. How time seems to fly when there's a football tournament on. I hope the game tonight is entertaining but I can see it becoming more and more of a tactical affair which will suit Portugal who seem to be very comfortable with playing in close games under their current coach. When the semi finals were over I was sure France would take it but as the game has gotten closer and closer I'm beginning to think that Portugal might just pull it off. So my prediction is Portugal to lift the trophy after a tense tight affair, winning 1-0. What say you fellow TAMB users?
  2. If anyone has the Amazon TV package check out All Or Nothing: A Season With The Arizona Cardinals. Similar to Hard Knocks but better as it follows them all the way through the season. I just finished watching it and thought it was excellent
  3. Has anyone on here attended the Hebridean Celtic Festival? I think that looks really good but not managed up to it as of yet
  4. Is anyone giving Iceland a chance of winning this one? I know France are dodgy at the back and with the suspensions they may be even more vulnerable back there but as much as I want to see Iceland getting it done I just can't help but feeling that France will find a way to win a close one here. Any thoughts??
  5. Aye Renato Sanches No they wouldn't. Most of their players are overrated a bit like our southern neighbours. They have the look of always coming up short to me
  6. Fancy the semi finalists to be Portugal, Belgium, Italy and France. Hope everyone enjoys the QFs
  7. it is not forbidden to be based outwith the country hosting the tournament while you are still participating in it
  8. Sevilla. The name of the football club is Sevilla. Can see this being a close one with Sevilla taking it 3-2 aet
  9. I see - that actually makes sense. cheers
  10. would I be right in thinking then that if Cove had been in the final and defeated The Shire, The Shire would've had to play Highland League next season?
  11. rds 5 and 6 were when Canelo changed his tactics slightly and came into the fight. In the first 4 rounds he was just head hunting and missing wildly and getting totally outboxed by Khan. Canelo needs to stop all this 155 nonsense and just fight GGG for all the middleweight gold. GGG will fold him IMO but will probably take him 9 or 10 rounds to do it
  12. yes retirement might be an option for him. it depends if he thinks his Canelo payday is enough or if he returns for more fights at Welter. He needs a long break from the ring anyway similar to what Pacquiao had after Marquez knocked him out heavily. The KO itself happened after Khan had missed with a jab and Canelo feinted a jab of his own which foxed Khan into moving his hands to block that punch thus leaving him wide open for the huge right which sparked him. Canelo had started going to the body more by that point in the fight so perhaps Khan's defence was starting from a slightly lower position too. Have found out that 2 of the judges had Canelo up at the time of the stoppage (one 3-2 and another inexplicably 4-1) which confirms that had it gone to the cards Khan would've had no chance of getting the decision
  13. Full respect to Khan for his performance tonight. He boxed beautifully for the first 4 rounds, Canelo must've been getting slightly worried. I had Khan up 4-1 (probably about to be 4-2 if the 6th had been completed as Canelo was starting to impose himself) when the brutal KO happened. Despite his great start I always felt Khan would walk onto something but I found myself hoping he wouldn't as it was getting really interesting. Anyway he's enhanced his reputation so providing he recovers OK from the heavy KO he should go back to Welter and push for the Brook fight as the A side fighter. Hope Canelo fights GGG next but can't see Golden Boy letting him take that fight this year. GGG is an entirely different matter and would stop Canelo within 9 rounds I think
  14. walk him onto what exactly? another feather fisted 3 and move Khan went life and death with Algieri in his last fight ffs (and you saw how a decent welter Spence demolished Algieri) he's not hurting Canelo with anything. This is a cashout fight for Khan. Fair enough, he'll get KO'd make a pile of money then disappear from the sport for good
