History repeats itself

Fans of history will be familiar with the motto, but it's appropriate for this evening following a double surprise in the Euros. I watched Poland fail to carry the fight to the Czechs in the second half and concede to the impressive Jiracek (sp). With hosts heading out we had a further surprise with Greece beating Russia. A Red Army will again slink back from Poland and, again, a meagre Greek side has progressed further than they deserve in European battle.

I would like to thank Mick McCarthy for his Yorkshire/Irish honesty in recalling Resek's "cheating dive" to put The Czech Republic through against Scotland.

Bottom-line for me has to be that neither Greece nor Czech Republic will make the semi's. At this rate the Greek national side will remain in Europe longer than their country.

It seems the Polish fans were told that if they caused trouble at last nights match they'd be sent straight back to the UK
