...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.>

England will beat Germany 2-0
Germany just that good, and England are hitting their stride
Trust me doom mongers

WilfShelf Wed 23-Jun-10 22:58:37

And btw, I think you'll find my Germany prediction was before the game was played...

<wax on...>

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

Arf. Nicht sympathy.

MmeLindt Wed 23-Jun-10 22:26:58

We are the underdogs, we have not won a WC since 1990.

WilfShelf Wed 23-Jun-10 22:23:37

Er, sorry MmeLindt, but, er, no. It doesn't work like that. You have special circs; we all just remember the beatings.

I shall be supporting an underdog team when if EngErLand go on Sunday.

MmeLindt Wed 23-Jun-10 22:21:19

Are you all going to switch allegiance to Germany then, if you lose on Sunday? I will be supporting England if they get through.

The Irish must be so pleased the French are out.

I reckon Germany might win....please not Maradonna's Men. Not forgiven him for cheating in 82.

PortiaNovmerriment Wed 23-Jun-10 22:16:03

Yes, if anyone is going to be distracted by Russians and, er, 'snow', it would be players from our Premier League, if the tabloids are to be believed...

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

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

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

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.

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

LOL @ historic reference!

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

MrsRhettButler Wed 23-Jun-10 22:09:26

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>

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

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

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.

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

Portia grin

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!

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

What about Uruguay? (plays wild card)

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

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

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

I have also fancied Argentina since their opening game

<jumps on bandwagon>

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.

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

Now we have to play the Germans!!!!

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


You saw it here first.

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 21:01:14

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