...of many, many days ago:

""England will lose their first two games; the tabloids will call for Capello's head on a plate and a spear up his arse. Some games later, when they have pulled it back, the tabloid will call for his knighthood." WilfShelf

I thank you <bows deeply>

<OK, they didn't actually lose but I pretty much called it. I think Gaby Logan should step down now and let me do the job.>

TooPragmatic Wed 23-Jun-10 17:02:26

well called, WilfShelf!

<kneels and worships at the Oracle that is WilfShelf>

Oh mighty One...who will we be against on Sunday?

PortiaNovmerriment Wed 23-Jun-10 17:03:30

I was reading that twenty minutes ago and nooding sagely grin

PortiaNovmerriment Wed 23-Jun-10 17:04:41

Ooh they are discussing Carragher now- this must be where we say thet he was wrong to come out of retirement and should have put his club before his country, isn't it?

WilfShelf Wed 23-Jun-10 17:06:24

Ah, PEC, my pupil. I think you know the answer to that spiritual question in your own heart.

<makes Karate Kid pose in anticipation of this evening>

Germany

PersonalEnglandCoach Wed 23-Jun-10 17:15:07

Yeah I thought that...If we could stuff them again, it would almost be as good as winning the Cup!

allbie Wed 23-Jun-10 19:09:42

Shine on...shine off. Paint the fence...or maybe the crane??

WilfShelf Wed 23-Jun-10 21:01:14

And now I predict those tennis players will have to die before their match ends...

MavisEnderby Wed 23-Jun-10 21:07:23



Who do you predict will win?

I predict a South American team (sits on fence) or possibly Spain.Though one can never truly discount the Germans....

WilfShelf Wed 23-Jun-10 21:44:21

Argentina.

You saw it here first.

Portofino Wed 23-Jun-10 21:45:18

Now we have to play the Germans!!!!

Ingles2 Wed 23-Jun-10 21:47:55

Good call Wilf
I predict Maradona and his cuddly Argies to win...
Ds1 says Brazil will win.

notnowbernard Wed 23-Jun-10 21:49:03

I have also fancied Argentina since their opening game

<jumps on bandwagon>

WilfShelf Wed 23-Jun-10 21:52:02

Nice work albie btw: what's the old guy's name in KK?

MavisEnderby Wed 23-Jun-10 21:52:17

What about Uruguay? (plays wild card)

PortiaNovmerriment Wed 23-Jun-10 22:05:05

Does anybody see any historical similarities here? The French surrendered early, the USA arrive last minute and we are left to fight the Germans!

notnowbernard Wed 23-Jun-10 22:06:45

Portia grin

MmeLindt Wed 23-Jun-10 22:07:42

The Germans are going to win on Sunday.

Sorry guys. Tut mir leid.

Going to keep linking to this until you all know the words and can sing along.

MavisEnderby Wed 23-Jun-10 22:09:17

Yes,I fear Germany will win.We are simply Not Good Enough.

no no no!!!
either England or Brazil have to win so that i can win a oner (sp) in the pub sweepstakes ok!! <stamps foot>

MaureenMLove Wed 23-Jun-10 22:11:32

LOL @ historic reference!

In that case, we're in! We beat the Germans!!! grin

WilfShelf Wed 23-Jun-10 22:12:43

Ye-e-e-es. However, this time we don't have any Russians or snow to weaken their campaign from the East however.

notnowbernard Wed 23-Jun-10 22:14:28

If, and it's a big if, we do beat them we are in all likelihood going to have to face ARGENTINA in the QFs

Let's get on the plane now grin

Ingles2 Wed 23-Jun-10 22:15:07

grin @ Wilf
But yes, we will lose on Sunday.
