We’ve waited almost two years for it, but Euro 2016 is finally here. The lull after the Premier League finished didn’t last long as the quadrennial (it’s a word, we promise) tournament kicks off on June 10 for a month long festival of football. Can Germany add to their World Cup glory? Will England finally deliver on the big stage 50 years on from their first triumph? How will Martin and Michael O’Neill get on? Does anyone care about Scotland? We’ll have all the answers to these questions with our team of computer monkeys typing away to their hearts content. There’ll be tips from our dedicated traders, group by group guidelines, as well as exclusive columns from Teddy Sheringham and Mick McCarthy with ex-Everton and Wales stopper Neville Southall and La Liga expert Graham Hunter giving their tuppence worth as the weeks go on. So sit back, relax, pour yourself a beverage and enjoy Paddy’s coverage of the Euros. It could be worse, BT could’ve got the rights and you would’ve had three weeks of Michael Owen – punishment not even Pepe is worthy of.
