Flawed but still a great addition.

Having read the very negative review from another customer I was wary of buying this set. The points he makes are very salient, the picture has been stretched and the vast majority of games do have dubbed in commentary. However these flaws although damaging are not fatal. Modern technology means we can change the picture settings on our television. I am as fussy as the next person but that problem was easily taken care of. As for the commentary, the lack of original commentators is more irritating for the older viewer, most young people couldn`t care less if they miss out on the dulcet tones of John Motson or Brian Moore. Much more relevant is the fact the crowd noise is original, believe me, having a dubbed in crowd noise would really damage this. I have heard a few of those in my day. Shudder. The choice of matches is really good, the great players in Euro history (Zidane, Platini, Van Basten, Muller, Riva, Schuster etc) all feature and the games are just the right length for such a collection. I would definitely recommend the set to any football fanatic.
