A Quick Word About England and Monday

There’s nothing I can add to the England debate – we just do not seem to be able to raise our game for the big match. There are many theories as to why, but I am very much of the belief that we have just been so starved of success at international football that we really have forgotten how to be winners.

As to trading on Monday, I didn’t do any. Like many, I simply sat, hung my head in shame and felt my heart sink as I watched England embarrass themselves against an island nation of 300,000 people. Well done Iceland but forgive me for not really putting my heart into congratulating you as I should. It is a bit like the feeling you have when it’s your birthday but you’re attending the funeral of a close friend.

As to Italy and Spain, it was always going to be a hard one to call but italy certainly wanted it more on the day.

Poland v Portugal

Current odds:

The market isn’t offering any signs of an ASP trade today, ahead of the game and I can’t see that changing before kick-off. I would like to see Poland win but Portugal are one of those national sides that seem to be able to play together and play well when it counts.

General:

I would like to see Poland win but Portugal are one of those national sides that seem to be able to play together and play well when it counts. So I have a feeling that Portugal will win but it will not be an easy win for them. However, I am going with 2-o to Portugal. I think they will soak up the pressure and then take charge.
