    Rooting for Germany, but really my main concern is just that this semi produces the losing semi finalist. Should be a belter of a game. Not convinced by Spain in this tournament but they've done enough thus far.

    Yeah that's my fear - I think it was Uppercut who said that Germany, as good as they've been, seem to be playing at maximum capacity whereas Spain have made it to the same point without ever nearing top form. The feeling is that Spain still have another gear or two to hit, whereas perhaps Germany have peaked.

    Still fully behind Jerry though.

    Germany 2

    Spain 1

    Germany to score first, Spain to draw level and Podolski to get the winner... in extra time.

    inb4 Spain win 2 - 0.

    Netherlands to win the whole fruit basket...and draw level with Eng and Fra.

    I think that's become quite overstated. You'd much rather go into the game having played the way Germany have than go into it having played the way Spain have. To me the theory of "peaking too soon" only really means that every match is a new start, and it's irrelevant how teams have performed up to that point. It certainly doesn't imply that a team that played badly earlier in the tournament is more likely to play well in the latter stages than a team that's been fantastic all the way through.

    Besides, even if Germany can't really get any better, they don't need to. If they match their last two performances, they'll win the vast majority of the time.

    So it wasn't you who said it then?

    Agreed though - if Germany can produce another England/Argentina performance they'll win this.

    It's ridiculous they don't take into account Australian timezones when setting these matches.

    Haha, I don't think so. They've been the best team, and while the best team doesn't usually win the tournament, they win it more often than anyone else does.

    Interesting selection bringing in Pedro.

    So presumably Spain will now have zero players in the box when they're trying to walk it into the net. That is apart from the once in a while time they successfully walk it into the box obviously.

    "Germany haven't been behind yet."

    Really, Alan? Not even in the game they lost? Bugs me when chaps who're (presumably) well paid to talk about football make such obvious errors in basic fact.
