    For anyone interested the entirety of Euro 96 is being shown on ITV 4. Currently England vs Switzerland is on.

    I feel a bit like i'm watching the movie Titanic...….

    David Platt not starting in the first game, not sure about that. We might be lacking in firepower.

    Just put it on, can’t believe they’re showing all the build up as well, fascinating to watch it back. I was a ball boy for the England Germany game so will be interesting to see if I can spot myself when that is on.

    about to kick off! come on England! the swiss are going to be a tough test though, great record in qualifying.

    Absolutely loving this, decent replacement for the actual football.

    The ball seems so much heavier back then, probably was.

    swiss started very well, putting us under the kosh early doors.

    game being played at a much higher tempo than what you typically see nowadays.

    what a strike by shearer! hint of offside though, var not being used at these championships!

    What will VAR have to say about that after the goal is checked

    mcmanaman looks very lively, Anderton on the other hand not at the races today. think we should targeting the right swiss right back vogel a bit more.

    Wouldn’t know the Anderton lad is playing, must be carrying an injury....

    shearer should have done better there really, great chance at the back post.

    I don't think it's "live".

    That half has flown by, I hope we don’t regret those missed chances in the second half.

    popping back to reality but how good was Gascoigne? he is recovering from injury still here but he has been the best player on the pitch by a mile. I reckon fitness issues aside he would still walk into any top premier league team.

    platt for Anderton second half? Anderton looks like he cannot be bothered.

    looking at it again, vega definitely played shearer onside....we should have seen the warning signs then :(

    a19tgg Reservist

    Yeah he oozes class, dare I say it even Pirlo-esque in the centre

    Anderton is definitely the weak link in that team overall though. Otherwise a very good side who were unlucky not to actually win something.

    such a shame that he struggled so much with his demons. he should have been celebrated as one of the greats.

    sigh.......I know your looking for a bite lowerrous but im not going to give it to you. go and argue with some of the other kids in 'Way to end the season fairly' thread.

    just let those of us who want to enjoy a bit of football and relive some great games a bit of peace, eh?
