Football (soccer) of course and golf. They're the most boring sports I have ever seen!

As for Turkey, our formation seems to be a little bit uncompetitive. Although players are in such a good form, they are not strong enough to compete with big guns. I don't think we could win against Portugal or Czech Republic. But we Turkish people live in a very emotional manner. If we could manage to go through 2nd round somehow, then we can carry our form to the top or even final, thanks to morale and motivation, just like we did in 2002 World Cup in which we became 3rd.

Our squad list here by Fatih Terim:

Goal Keepers:
* Volkan Demirel » (Fenerbahçe)
* Rüştü Reçber » (Beşiktaş)
* Tolga Zengin » (Trabzonspor)

Defenders
* Emre Aşık » (Ankaraspor)
* Servet Çetin » (Galatasaray)
* Gökhan Gönül » (Fenerbahçe)
* İbrahim Kaş » (Beşiktaş)
* Gökhan Zan » (Beşiktaş)

Midfielders
* Ayhan Akman » (Galatasaray)
* Hamit Altıntop » (Bayern Munich)
* Mehmet Aurélio » (Fenerbahçe)
* Hakan Balta » (Galatasaray)
* Yıldıray Baştürk » (Stuttgart)
* Emre Belözoglu » (New Castle United)
* Uğur Boral » (Fenerbahçe)
* Gökdeniz Karadeniz » (Trabzonspor)
* Tümer Metin » (Larissa)
* Sabrı Sarıoğlu » (Galatasaray)
* Mehmet Topal » (Galatasaray)
* Arda Turan » (Galatasaray)

Forwards
* Halil Altıntop » (Shalke 04)
* Mevlüt Erdinç » (Sochaux)
* Nihat Kahveci » (Villerreal)
* Kazım Kazım » (Fenerbahçe)
* Tuncay Sanli » (Middlebrough)
* Semih Şentürk » (Fenerbahçe)

Yup, he had a terrible season at Benfica, but he will be there, i don`t think he`ll be the 1st choice though.

Czech will win the group, 2nd place between Portugal and Turkey, that`s how i see it. Portugal had a poor qualy campaign, they played badly, in a weak group, so i don`t have high expectations. Just hope the players gain motivation in the tournament, otherwise they`ll be home soon...

Yes, exactly the same for Turkey but IMO Portugal appearantly have what it takes to finish the job much more than us.

Wolves have a decent team. It's a shame they missed out play-offs on goal difference. They would have done better than Watford.
