I'll have to side with Paul and have Spain 2-Netherlands 1. I'm sure it's going to be a close match because neither were really getting as many goals as most of the other countries.

Can I just say despite the apparent decline in European football it is still

1.) Spain/Holland

2.) Spain/Holland

3.) Germany

European dominance!


I think this WC shows that attacking football wins, all the nations that reached semis priorize attack over defense, sure, Spain and Germany might be more "flashy" to the eyes, but all 4 teams produced some excellent displays and had their strongest link in the attack. If anything, that's the conclusion I get from this WC, because at the same time you can say that those three countries are the only good thing of european football because all the other nations of the continent sucked big time.

I heard that the CONCACAF asked for more spots....are they mad? They've shown that the only sides they have are USA and Mexico, they're lucky they have one and a half more places in addition to the eternal two, they should forfeit those out of respect to football

Europe and South America should be the only continents gaining sides. From Europe I thought there could have been a few extras. Russia Croatia Sweden and Turkey were big sides to miss out

Well, it's assured that a WC with 16-17 or so European, 7-8 South American, and the remaining 8 for the rest of the world (think USA, Mexico, Japan, SKorea, Ghana, Côte D'Ivoire and maybe one more for each Asia and Africa) would be way more competitive and exciting than this where you have countries that aren't at a WC level like Honduras, North Korea and Algeria

Of course. You europeans always have one bazillion team spots on the WC.

PS - Yes Bazillion is a real number.

Paul the octopus is the real thing. I can't believe it.

I'm crossing my fingers that he is wrong about the final, though. And as many of you stated, I think that the 3rd place match was epic.

About the European dominance thing, I mostly agree with Zexen's explanation. I was one of those who claimed that it would be epic if four south american countries would reach the semifinals and only one did, so I´m kind of sad about it.

Haha I should be safe. But, there are two games left, if Maynard Tool (Who didn't put any scores for the semi's) was to get two perfect scores and I was to get two incorrect results, he would beat me!


Hey not fair, i sent my predictions to Scifiboy... i only got 1 point though =(

 

I was banned for some reason......

 

Spain 1-2 Holland

Germany 3-0 Uruguay

ok....so I shall add 1 point to your total?

Yes, cause i dont remember my predictio for holland being 3-2 and since germany lost, I got a big 0 there....

Where are your last set of results? I can't find them or did you send them to SCIFIBOY?



1.) FootballFan - 51 points - 9 correct scores, 24 results
2.) Maynard_Tool - 47 points - 6 correct scores, 28 results
3.) lafiel - 45 points - 5 correct scores, 29 results
pariz - 43 points - 6 correct scores, 25 results
Falcon095 - 42 points - 6 correct scores, 24 results
MANUELF - 42 points - 6 correct scores, 24 results
Zexen_lowe – 41 points – 5 correct scores, 26 results
marciosmg 41 points – 5 correct scores, 26 results
draik - 41  points - 3 correct scores, 32 results
jonop - 38 points - 3 correct scores, 28 results
c03n3nj0 - 37 points - 5 correct scores, 22 results
CrazyHorse – 37 points – 3 correct scores, 28 results
wick - 37 points - 3 correct scores, 28 results
SciFiBoy - 35 points - 4 correct scores, 23 results

Last day = Final and final = double points. Also take into consideration that Paul the Octopus says Spain will win

Correct = 2

Perfect = 6

 



And also take in consideration Paul has always been right EXCEPT in the last final.

Hey, I gotta give myself some hope




I'm backing Holland more out of hope than expectation

Most of the players are Premier League based, the Spain team is more or less Barcelona (6/11) (3/11 Real Madrid) Pretty much proves why they are the favourites. Also I'm pissed off with Spain for complaining about Howard Webb. They are unhappy at how he officiated when they lost to Switzerland, and think that he shouldn't referee their games because of the rivalry between La Liga and the Premiership! To me they are just getting excuses prepared just incase they lose
