Spain should definitely start with Llorente up front instead of Torres. You can't just expect Germany to dominate you and then let you win like most of the other teams Spain have played so far. Spain have to have a different dimension beyond trying to walk the ball into the net. It will also make it easier to walk the ball into the net when you have a guy like that occupying the defence.
Anyway here's hoping Spain's default run ends, then the evil is defeated by the orange mob in the final.
Don't recall Germany ever wearing Orange.
IF the Dutch are to hand Uruguay a hiding and make it to the final, it is going to be a football romantics wet dream:
First time winners Neth vs Esp OR
The grudge match Neth vs the bicycle stealers
Anyway slight favourites are the bicycle stealers in the semi final.
Neth 2 1 winners in the final.
Paul the octopus has predicted Spain will win this one. :)
YouTube - Oracle Paul 'Psychic' Octopus puts Spain, not Germany to WC final
However, there is still hope for German fans.. he got the result of the Euro 2008 final wrong.
Belgians are the 'bicycle stealers', ****ers are the only country than seem to run a free for all bike system where you find a bike stowed away in one of those bike rack things and just take it.
Annoys the crap out of everyone else when Belgians go abroad and assume noone else has any possessions.
I tipped Germany to beat England, Argentina and now Spain. :cool:
Keep tipping Germany to lose, even against England for some reason, must have been a moment of patriotic madness.
have my money on Germany, although I fear the loss of Muller will be to big.
Much as I'd like Germany to win, I think this might be one step too far, particularly with Muller out. Hope I am wrong though. Have enjoyed watching them far more than any other team in this tournament.
Tipping Germany to repeat the effort of 1936 and have a deleterious effect on the Spanish defence.
Odds on Spain to qualify falling.
