This thread will probably die on its arse but thought I'd do it anyway, especially with not much football this summer.

 

Squads are here : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2013_UEFA_European_Under-21_Football_Championship_squads

 

Spain and Holland's squads look very strong

 

Group A                        

Israel

England

Norway

Italy

 

Group B

Spain

Holland

Russia

Germany

 

Group B looks very interesting.

 

Posted on another forum, but these are the players with senior caps

 

England: Butland, Caulker, Henderson, Shelvey, Zaha (5)

Israel: Twatiha, Ben Harush, Biton, Golasa (4)

Italy: Florenzi, Insigne, Verratti, Gabbiadini, Borini, Destro (6)

Norway: Hedenstad, Rogne, Semb Berg, Eikrem, Henriksen, Konradsen, Nordtveit, Singh, Berget, Berisha, King, De Lanlay, Nielsen, Pedersen (14)

Germany: Holtby (1)

Netherlands: Van Rhijn, De Vrij, Martins Indi, Blind, Clasie, Wijnaldum, Strootman, De Jong, Maher, John, Fer, Van Ginkel (12)

Think the dutch will win it. Its practically a senior squad theyve got playing. They played our u/20's last week and wiped us 3-0.

I'm thinking England/Norway out of Group A and Spain/Holland out of Group B. Then Spain rapes Norway as Holland rapes England and then Spain rapes Holland. I don't like Italy so I may be biased in my Group A estimate.

Would be more interested if some of our players were involved.

 

Paddy Van Aanholt only one with a connection to us I think

 

Shame France aren't in it, could do some scouting

France were shit. Don't deserve to be in it when fucking Norway rapes them, insanity.

Should be canny.

 

Some of the better teams might succumb to burnout. Won't it be absymally hot in Israel n all?

 

Another tournament that wasn't awarded to us (we bid). Madness.

Some journo posted a photo on twitter showing the thermometer at 41c. That's a tad wam.

Be nice to watch the Dutch, they have a lot of players I've read a lot about but have never seen play. You'd imagine we'll be sniffing around after a couple of them too.

 

Be interesting to see what madcap tactics Stuart Pearce throws up too.

Look forward to Pearce building his team around Danny Rose at #10.

 

/not

 

He's a very good player is Danny Rose.

 

As a full-back yes.

 

Pearce builds the side around him in forward positions, where he is gash.
