Hopefully Saka and England can draw strength from that so close noment, and go one better in Euro 24.

2004 was fun. Some really exciting teams... and Greece. What an underdog story. Greece being the ultimate party crasher with their defensive style of football ruining Portugal's home tournament was hilarious, ngl.

Besides 2021 which was an abomination 2016 was the worst in my opinion. Lots of boring games and a final which I wanted both teams to lose...

Blaming this for us not winning the title last season.

Real ones remember Turkey in 2008. Forget Bayer Leverkusen, those guys really never knew when they were beaten.

Arshavin emerging, Holland destroying Italy and France. Spain absolutely brilliant under the massive racist.

2016 was alright, some memorable moments but low on quality. Italy were the best team that year imo, but narrowly lost to Germany on pens.

2004. Holland with some exciting players, some old ones on the brink of retirement (Stam, De Boer, I think even Overmars, Davids..) and new talent: Arjen Robben. The entire nation was up in flames when Advocaat subbed off Robben after he tore Czech Republic (a very good team at that time) a new one. He brought on ****ing Paul Bosvelt. We ended up losing 2-3, having been 2-0 up. After already drawn to Germany in the first game, we now needed to beat Latvia and hope Baros, Nedved et al. would do us a huge favour and beat the Germans when they were already through. They did. Can still see the Germans crying.

After that, we beat Sweden after penalties, something that we never managed before. I saw us lose PK's vs Brazil in '98, Italy in 2000.. and now we won.

Then came the Portuguese. Maniche, Figo, that goalie Ricardo that took his gloves off with penalty kicks.. I've hated those diving **** ever since we played them in '04 and '06. So glad Greece won it in the end.

Notable mentions to 2000 and 2008. Can't really be bothered by international football anymore.

What I like about the Euros is that there's no third place game. Nobody needs that crap. If you lose the semi-final you just want to go home and not play another game.
 

Arsenal Quotes

"Surely what will be their last attack.

A good ball by Dixon, finding Smith for Thomas, charging through the midfield... It's up for grabs now! Thomas! Right at the end!

What an unbelievable climax to the League season"

Brian Moore on the Thomas' winning goal at Anfield in 1989
