20 years ago I would have booked the whole length of tournaments off work, I couldn’t even tell you what days England are playing this time.

I'm looking forward to it. Another step in "back to normal".

Just need a decent wallchart.

I can't wait to see it myself its going to be incredible and a great release after the last year + of Covid .
The time difference is going to make rough to see any live so a lot of late nights catching up and trying to avoid score alerts .
I also try and watch Copa America but seeing Vargas and Isla kill themselves playing for Chile stings a bit .Maybe it was the language barrier or just the hired guns they played with at QPR when they did not distinguish themselves here

I'm looking forward to it, always love a big tournament, always a good story somewhere along the line and a bit of excitement. Unfortunately I'm dry at the mo due to a marathon at the end of the month so my usual mode of enjoying games with a few beers is out but I should be fit for the latter stages.

I am still Steve but no longer in Dagenham.

I used to find it more competitive and compelling than the World Cup as it featured more close high-quality games, but going the same way of quantity over quality.
1) It spoils the tournament. 8 teams great, 16 surprisingly still good, 24? If a team can get out of its group with three draws, it doesn't give them much of an incentive to attack, and it increases the chances that both teams in the final group game already know they can qualify with a draw and only mess it up if they try to win.
2) It really ruins qualifying, no peril and suspense for the bigger nations when they are routinely kept apart. (Scottish readers may have different opinions!)

Its because the England players until recently have not been interested in the national team.The likes of Rooney Gerrard etc
I lost interest in the Ericcson era when he would change half the team at half .time .It was like a training game 2nd half .
Plus it brings all the plastic fans out with car flags and the chance to throw beer in the air but have never been to a game .
Dykes not getting injured is my prime interest .

Like people you meet at social gatherings who make a point of telling you how much they dislike football.

Don't know what the OP's aim was but sometimes people post what they feel to see if anyone else feels similar and maybe to start a debate as to why. Sometimes I'm not in the groove on a subject and want someone to stir up my enthusiasm.

I am the same, this is supposedly one of our national games and England look to have a reasonable chance on paper to do well.

I'm finding it difficult to contain my apathy.
I'm just interested in how Dykes gets on for Scotland but unlikely to watch any games on the box.

I was completely indifferent to it as I hate UEFA, but now it's here, the wallchart's gone up on the wall, and I'm looking forward to it. Not sure whether it's to do with the pandemic or not, but the build-up/buzz seems pretty low key here in Bristol. Nothing much out and about to tell you that there's a major tournament about to start. Don't think I've seen anyone out in an England shirt or whatever either, which feels a bit odd.

Hoping for good things for England, Scotland and Wales.

"Well yes".

Okay, debate. Well, perhaps the deprivation from live football has made you feel a step removed from it. Maybe you're feeling disengaged from the national team because of the way elite football has become so self-absorbed. Maybe (like me) supporting a Championship club means you pay less attention to the Prem so find yourself reading the team sheet and saying "Who?". Maybe the lockdown has adversely affected your mood and you need cheering up.

As to stirring up enthusiasm:

C'mon!
Get in!
etc

How's that?

Another excited one here. Love international tournaments - may not have the passion for England that I had as a younger man, but 2018 was fantastic and we have a good squad. 16 countries was the optimum for the Euros in my view, agree with the post above. Shame they expanded it. 16 was tight, with all really good teams. But it'll still be really good, especially with some fans in.

Bare bones.

I think it's quite an open tournament. France look like the favourites but thats a tough group they have. Add in the uncertainty of COVID and if just one player gets ill as we saw with Spain last week you might get some real shocks with players missing.

I think if England get to the last 4 they would have done brilliantly, think this is coming a year too soon for this squad to win it

I'm somewhere in between excited and disinterested.

Can't stand the hype around England at every major tournament, but as I don't spend my time slagging off Sky whilst sending them money every month, I don't get to see much live football outside QPR and my refereeing.

Will watch the 8pm games but if the weather stays as it is, won't be coming indoors to watch the 2/5pm KOs. If home nation involved will record and watch later - that has the added advantage of avoiding all the pre and post match 'chat' and the half time 'analysis'!
