George marvels at Turk battling on with gurney strapped to leg

“And Servet is having a large piece of medical equipment strapped to his left knee!”

Jimmy Magee not impressed with less than magical Sagnol free-kick;

“He can’t put it through people. Not even David Copperfield could put it through that wall.”

Ronnie Whelan not keen on the Croats’ geometry;

“They can see that Croatia are no great shapes.”

Jimmy living in the past;

“Euro 2-0-8”

Watching a different game;

Stephen Alkin: “I feel sorry for the Russians. They’ve been very honest in this second half and never thrown in the towel.”

Ronnie Whelan: “The Russians have got to be ashamed of themselves second half. I don’t know what’s the point of going through a two-year qualifying campaign if they’re going to go out in the second half and not be bothered. They went out as if it meant nothing.”

Eamo: “There’s a melancholy in the Russian nature. A bit like the Welsh.”

Getting his own back on Souey

One of the themes of the tournament looks set to be Eamo’s ongoing bid to exact revenge for Souness querying his playing and managerial track records during the latter stages of the Champions League;

Eamo: “If you listen to an aria instead of a hip-hop, your attention span might grow and you might reflect and look into your soul as some people like to do.”
Souey (alarmed): “It’s professional football, we’re talking about Eamon.”
Eamo: “”I was only kidding, baby….”

And after Souness reckoned Italy were still in with a shout of winning the tournament;

Eamo: “You can have 25-1 with me on Italy.”
Souness: “I’ll have a pound.”
Eamo: “A pound!!!”
