The Movement’s In Motion

Along with sexy suit-wearing, awkwardly-pointing Maxi, we're giving you a heads up that we're moving on. Our long-awaited transfer to SB Nation as a host platform is mostly complete, and after a few button clicks on Friday morning, we'll be in the future. In case you're wondering, Charlie Adam's terrible at making decisions on the break there, too.

The Euros start up again today, and with them we've got four more days of blessed distraction before it's back to worrying about how June is almost over and Liverpool haven't signed anybody while Hulk and Hazard and Marin are already sipping martinis in Roman Abramovich's lair/discotheque beneath Stamford Bridge while the Chelsea owner strokes Jose Bosingwa's eyebrow.

After twelve straight days of football, a break between the group stages and knockout rounds at Euro 2012 comes as something of a shock to the system—at least if you're not a fan of the Finnish Veikkausliiga and getting set to watch FC Lahti take on Haka Valkeakoski. I does, however, mean that with attention given a chance to focus on something other than the tournament in Poland and Ukraine, all of a sudden there's more Liverpool news leaking out.

Much of the English media spent the days leading up to the match talking as though advancement to the knockout rounds was a foregone conclusion, little more than a formality with the only question being whether Roy Hodgson's side would face off against Spain or Italy in the next round.

Hard to believe that group play's on its final day and we're almost ready to move on to the knockout stages, with only two matches left before we turn to the quarterfinals. Monday promised the potential for some surprises in the top three, but in the end it was the two teams most had picked moving on, and Croatia joining Ireland on the way out.

Euro 2012: Germany and Portugal Move On, Heading to Group C

Sunday had perhaps the most underwhelming product of the tournament thus far from a neutral perspective, which is maybe better put as a neutral who despises most of the Portuguese squad and wanted nothing less than their total annihilation. There was a brief period when plenty of intrigue was promised, but the wrap-up didn't really deliver on the drama front, and now we've got only two days left of group play.

We can take a brief break in the build-up to today's Group C matches to look at Liverpool's schedule for the upcoming Premier League season, which will kick off for Brendan Rodgers' side in the West Midlands. It'll be a challenging (to say the least) opening few weeks, particularly if Europa League matches are thrown into the mix, but what better way to start the season than against some of the league's best?

Also, WHAT? We've really been spoiled with the tournament so far, and Saturday only enriched an experience that's provided plenty of dramatic moments to this point. I say that as a neutral yesterday was obviously painful for those who had a vested interest in the success of Russia or Poland, and today will see two more teams end their run.

The group stage of Euro 2012 has been both captivating and lightning-quick this first week has flown by, and with only four days left until the first knockout round is set, there's not much of a slow-down to deal with yet. The nice part about how fast it's gone is that there's been barely any Liverpool news to discuss, and while there's a bit to look at today, we'll mostly just be paying attention to the only group in which all four sides still have a chance to qualify.

Sweden 2, England 3: England Surprise in Comeback Win

England fight back to get the win in Kiev over Sweden, scoring two goals in the second half after throwing away yet another 1-0 lead. There was little predicting it after the Swedes took the lead, but Roy Hodgson's squad somehow managed a comeback that was so inconsistent with both the man and his squad that there's nothing left but to enjoy how often football manages to knock you completely on your ass.

Thursday continued what's been a fantastic tournament overall, with a tightly-contested first match and a fairly easy romp for the defending champions in the nightcap. Nearly every match to this point has been eminently entertaining those that have lacked for goals have made up for it with a mostly watchable pace of play, even from the sides that you wouldn't normally expect to provide entertainment.

While neither of Wednesday's games quite managed to measure up to the fireworks in Warsaw on Tuesday, what looked to be one of the most interesting days of the group stage heading into the tournament still delivered its share of intrigue and entertainment, and as a result all four nations in Group B still have everything to play for come Sunday.

Matchday five saw an already strong tournament hit new heights when Russia faced off against hosts Poland, and with Group B afterthoughts Denmark and Portugal fighting for a realistic opportunity to advance while the Netherlands need a win against Germany to keep hope alive after stumbling in the opener, day six promises its share of captivating moments.

We had hoped to still talk a bit about Liverpool while the Euros were on, but with even the rumour mongers' eyes focused on Poland and Ukraine and Brendan Rodgers deciding he might rather not give a daily briefing on what's going on behind the scenes at the club, it's three month-old transfer rumours and crickets out there when it comes to Liverpool news.

Monday gave us the final two games of the first group stage round, and for Liverpool fans the main attraction was France versus England, where two of the club's players started and another four were available from the bench. We took an extended look at England's draw yesterday, which means it's time now for a quick look back at the exciting Ukraine-Sweden match and a look ahead to the start of the second set of group games, including the dominant Russians taking on hosts Poland, desperate for a result to keep any hopes of advancing alive.
