John Laing chief executive David Blair is open minded about his allegiance. 'I will be supporting England or any team which knocks them out, except Scotland.' Blair agrees with the general consensus of the industry's great and good that the host nation will triumph. He is however one of the lucky few who will be going to any of the matches. The Laing top man is impressed with the Stade de France: 'It is a brilliant stadium'. But then he would say that - it was part built by Laing's partner, GTM.
