If you stick a tenner on one of your football fancies grimshaw (£5ew if you like) with Willian Hill they will give you a £5 free bet everytime your selections wins a game, bang that on one of your other fancies each time and if you don't come out on top, pack in betting altogether.

Jarvo, Alliss won the Italian, Spanish and Portuguese Opens in the space of 3 weeks in 1958, tied 8th in the Open Championship four times, represented England 10 times in the World Cup of Golf, and played in 8 Ryder Cup teams.
Tell us again what you've won?

Posted by: lisalee (11994)   Report abuse
Belgium are the dark horses for me although they’ve got a tough group to qualify from.

Posted by: chatty (5936)  Report abuse
So we've all seen the winners play by now......anybody any the wiser who they are?

Posted by: grimshaw (1018)  Report abuse
Tough call chatty.

Not impressed by the south american challenge so far but things can change .

Leaning towards a european winner, thought spain played v well ,we shall see .

Who do you fancy then chatty ?

Posted by: blackrodweaver (500) Report abuse
chatty no ones really impressed me yet, Spain struggling as I type against Iran. so its up for grabs dare I mention England in this post.

Posted by: chatty (5936)  Report abuse
I didn't see the Spain game last night, after the first game they looked as good as anyone.
No one's really clicked as mentioned (bar Russia who have preformed better than their form suggested coming into the tournament, the home nation usually does)
I backed France at the start, and Greizmann for top goalscorer, when either comes good I get a free bet, so just covering my ass with those!
Belgium, some great players, but does anyone ever think they'll ever hear the phrase, here comes "World Cup winning manager Roberto Martinez"?
England's chance as good as anyone at this moment in time, but you could say the same about Southgate.
As they say "It's the hope that kills you"
