Euro 2020 draw looks a tad complicated with three potential hosts in the playoffs.

Slightly concerned we could end up with France and Portugal in our group.

Iím loving the massively overcomplicated way of deciding the play off waves and what seems the slightly arbitrary way it was devised. I thought Americans had the most ridiculous ways of deciding who gets to play offs but UEFA really stepping up to the plate here.

It's a shame this tournament has become so overblown.  Much better when it was 16 teams in four groups, when pretty much every group game was likely to mean something.  So now, even the 'group of death' is not really a group of death at all, as four teams who finish third in their group will get to go through to the last 16 in any case.  Having six groups of four just to eliminate eight teams is a nonsense.

Russia banned from 2020 Olympics and 2022 FIFA World Cup

However, Euro 2020 is apparently not affected because UEFA is not a 'major event organisation'

Of course, the penalties will get reduced upon appeal

Is anyone else trying to get tickets to the Euros? I was in  a ballot for every London game and the Glasgow ones that don't clash in the summer, didn't get any so just had another punt. Don't really mind who I see, if anything I think the England playing at Wembley factor will make it harder. Would be great to get lucky and get a semi or final ticket. Top whack for final is £945! Cheapest  £195.

Everybody should dye their hair blonde for the occasion.
