So here we go!??The start of Euro 2012.??
At time of writing, there are??54??players in this lovely little Euroguff game. I will show my pleasant nature by embracing late??entrants up until the first match kicks off.

Poland v Greece 5pm – BBC
69% of Euroguff players see this as a home win for Poland, which indeed it would be as the game is taking place in Warsaw.
Just four brave souls see the Greece bailing themselves out in drachmatic (ahem) fashion. These mythical heroes are Dario Made-the-Gradi, Toy Bodgson, Yankee's Spankers and Anjusha Klins-Morinho.
Russia v Czech Republic, 7.45pm ITV
Russia come into this game in fighting shape, being unbeaten in 14 matches and having made antipasta of Italy in a 3-0 win last Friday. The Euroguff comrades are uniformly confident that this will go to form:??
Russian march for victory – 39%
Cold war style stalemate – 44%
Czech mate – 17%
Enjoy the games. Next update tomorrow morning, including the Statistically Misleading Early League Table(TM)
