Can't help feeling a bit Doctor Smug from Smugsville.
For my money (and I've a fiver each way on them to win Euro 2012 at 40-1) Croatia looked the best team I've seen in the tournament so far. Yes, I know, England haven't played yet.
No shame on the Irish for losing to them. On tonight's showing, they'd have beaten anyone. A bit lucky with a couple of goals and penalty decisions maybe, but they're packing a lot of creative weapons and a player called (but probably not spelt) Rakatich, who sounds awesome and who had a pretty good game.
Get some money on this lot to go far, but don't blame me if it goes tits up. I've had a Guinness.
