World Cup Final predictions - Page 2

post #41 of 72
Now that the U.S. is out (Lucky Germany), I vote for Brazil.

I'm watching Spain Vs Korea. Go Korea!
post #42 of 72
I hope Spain wins this game. Korea has gotten away with so much, tripping, faking, and that recalled goal from the US. I know, I'm getting over it, but that still hurt. At least Brazil vs. Spain will be a clean game. Hopefully. Go Brazil!! I have my home-made feijoada, mandioca, and guarana. Bring on your best shot, Spain!

Go Brazil!!

Hello Jimdad!

England went to the FIFA World Cup and Scotland did not.

Let me put it another way: whereas Scotland did not qualify for the tournament, the England team did.

That is to say that England, who got through to the Quarter Final of the World Cup, and who beat Argentina and then the team that put out the world champions, are coming home while Scotland never left at all and stayed in Scotland.

(Curiously, the people of Scotland were watching the games on television, while many English fans actually went to Japan and Korea to watch their team play, but this is, I suppose, not germane to the point I am trying to make.)

Anyway.

Happily there is an explanation. Scotland, who now regularly lose by four goals to none against teams in awful disarray, did not go to Japan and Korea because they lost their crucial qualification matches. Sadly for the Scottish, the national side of Scotland is not very good at playing football. England, who are a lot better at playing football than Scotland, who are really very poor, were good enough to qualify and then went on to do rather well!

So you see!

Toodleoo!

NNOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

What was that guy THINKING!! (I'll kick the ball...I won't kick the ball...I'll kick the ball...) Spain won a LONG time ago.

Oh well, can't change the game, some win, some loose. I'll have to live with it. (and buy a new pair of glasses because it sure looked like the ball was on the field.)

NEXT TIME... <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" />

Hassan,
don't rise to the bait., You only add to the enjoyment. You also fail to understand our approach to the beautiful game. We KNOW we're awful but it doesn't matter. I would point out, though, that the last awful team we lost to -S. korea - are now in the semis whereas your lot of arrogant muppets are still looking for excuses and blaming one of the best goalkeepers you've had for a long time.
Never mind, start convincing yourself now that you'll win the next big one, build it up in the press and we up here can start looking forward to it if we don't make it ourselves.
BTW, has anyone else noticed bright the roses look today , how sweet they smell, how life seems worth living...........

Hello there Jimdad!

These are all excellent points, and very well made.

Nonetheless, England went to Korea and Japan to contest the FIFA World Cup in the company of the planet's greatest football nations: Brasil, Argentina, the mighty Saudi Arabia, the fearsome Ecuador...

...and, er, Scotland didn't. No Sir, they didn't go.

Nope, they didn't qualify.

No. No. Indeed, Scotland didn't make it. To Korea and Japan. For the World Cup. Unlike England. Who did.

Tata!

Is this perhaps an underhand move by the Deutscher Fussball-Bund? Poor Scots <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" />

Still, only a game.

So it's South Korea against Brazil then, with Brazil winning because Signor Pierluigi Collini is the best referee in the world.

Michael Skibbe, Assistant to Coach Ruuuudi, was asked today: "What are you going to do differently compared to Italy or Spain when facing South Corea."

And he simply said: "We will win."

Think about it

Oh, I see. No one cares anymore. US are out, and those damn Germans have made it again.

Congrats, Leonis. You were the first to make the right prediction.

Brazil, surely? On the other hand, if Germany won that wretched uro and the German economy might pick up, both of which would benefit me. Other than that... [shrugs shoulders]

Thanks

But I really have NO idea who will be the champion. Both Germany and Brazil teams are really tough match

I will watch the live cast for sure. But it's playing @ 4:30AM in my area

I predict many German fouls, a shortage of "Gooooooals1", and a penalty kick scenario...with Germany eeking out the victory on the strenght of their in-the-zone Gooooooal Keeper.

Brazil's goalie was in very good form.

The rhubarb and strawberry cake for 1.25 I had in one of Hamburg's Tschibo's the other day was very good

BTW I think it should be made a rule that all players have to wear caps in order to cover the often quite absurd attempts at styling their hair/heads.
