he is normally the best English referee when MAN UTD or their rivals are not in action in the game he is in charge.

and its really a interesting thing that he was involved in spain's loss to SWISS and Itlay's to slovakia. though could not make an upset in the brazil vs chile game.

hang on .............

in EURO 2008 ... octopus made only one WRONG prediction. it was in the final, when octopus predicted German to win but eventually Spain won.

octopus never had 100% record in prediction. that's why German were hopeful that though octopus predicted Spain, still Germany can actually win the semi, given that he is bound fail at least once.

now so with so far octopus having 100% record, and given that he never finishes with 100% record .... he is certainly gonna make a mistake in one of the remaining two games.

also i knew that octopus makes prediction for Germany games. why chose a game not involving Germany ???

Bhais, just a little side note.
We all love Paul. I do too. He is fascinating.
But be very careful not to mix up between having a good laugh and SHIRK.

Just a reminder, specially to the young ones, just because Paul said, its gonna happen. Please dont think like that. Only Allah knows best.

Dont mean to step into anyone's shoes here, but I felt compelled to express my worries. Thats all.

I am happy that we are going to get a New Champion. Whoever wins, just expecting an exciting Final with scoreline like 4-3 or 3-2

Paraguay , Portugal, Chile all outplayed Spain in the 1st half of their games. And Spain scored the only goal of the match in 3 matches in the 2nd half....

Based on that, Holland should ideally try to rattle and press Spain in the first half,and then go all out attack in the 2nd.....

I don't think so because champion (campeón) is masculine.

I have worked many years in Spain and hardly seen people use campeón for Espana. It depends where to use. For example you can not use campeóna for Brasil. España is feminine but Brasil is masculine. Here is one example I was reading from Fifa website(Spanish version) yesterday:

Awww can't believe we're here at the final already. If anybody is interested in a laugh, check out this show that we had nightly on the channel that's showing the cup. In some ways, it was the best part of the WC for me. http://theworldgame.sbs.com.au/promotion/cupfever
Go the DUTCH!

As your dedicated stoner, my brain says to root for Holland. But- but- as your resident Latin lover my heart aches for Spain.

Dilemma, dilemma!

BBC Sport's Alan Hansen

"It's not a shock that Fernando Torres has been left out by Spain. He has been a shadow of the player we know he is during this World Cup, and Pedro was a real livewire in their semi-final."

When it comes to octopus facts, on of the more amazing ones is that it has absolutely no bones. The only structure anatomical structure is the beak around the mouth, which is similar to your fingernails. By the way, octopuses’ bites are poisonous to their prey.

The octopus has an excellent eyesight and well-developed brain. It can instantly change the color and texture of its skin to match the surrounding area. This camouflage is a major method of protection.

The body of the octopus looks like a bag. It moves as the octopus breathes. Inside the mantle (the body) there are 3 hearts, the stomach and other organs. One heart pumps blood through each gill at the end of each of the two appendages. Water flows over the gills and fills the mantle when the octopus breathes in. The water is forced out a tube call the siphon as the octopus breathes out. It can force water through the siphon rapidly and jet itself backwards if the octopus is trying to escape a predator. Using jet propulsion, octopuses travel many kilometers. An octopus can protect itself temporarily blinding an attacker by squirting ink at it. The third heart pumps the blood through the body. The octopus blood is light blue.

Ref should be strict on Van Bommel. He is a disgrace. Booking him before the kick off is the only way to keep him away from nasty playing.

Netherlands coach Bert van Marwijk:

“I have been coach for two years and I have often thought I would love to play Spain, who I think have been the best footballing country of the last few years, and it is happening now. It is unbelievable. It is the most important match in my football life and that applies to all the players. It is an extraordinary situation. No Dutch player has ever been a world champion."

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque:

“I don't think the Netherlands will change its way of playing just because it is up against Spain. I don't believe in any way there will be a change in their script, in what they are thinking of doing. I don't think so. We both have our scripts written and we shouldn't veer from them.”

BBC Radio 5 live's Graham Taylor

"We haven't seen the best of Van Persie yet but he is a key player for the Dutch. When he plays for Arsenal he gets the ball whenever he asks for it. For the Netherlands that isn't the case because they have other great individuals like Sneijder and Robben - and you can see Van Persie gets very frustrated by that. People say he doesn't care about playing for his country like he does for his club, but that's not the case. The two teams just play in very different ways and he has a big role to play for both."

Spanish football expert Guillem Balague on BBC Radio 5 live

"It's a strange decision to pick Pedro ahead of Fernando Torres because, for Barca, Pedro is a winger - he doesn't play in the hole like he will tonight. I'm surprised because I thought Torres could do loads of work for David Villa, allowing him space and openings to score. Now as the lone striker, Villa will have to do that work for himself and as we saw against Germany, he is less effective in that role."
