    Dandred Mmmmm Beer!

    Here we go!!

    Spain 2-1.

    Probably just like the semi with Germany, tight, tense and not flowing.

    I hope tired cliches are the winner.

    Can't day i'm fussed who wins but i reckon that spain are more likely(completely ignoring form)

    I've been saying Holland/Netherlands since early June - ain't gonna change my mind now.

    OK Spain beat Germany but IMO they're nothing to be frightened about. Spain have been behind once against Switzerland - and lost.

    Holland were behind against Brazil but didn't panic and pulled it round.

    Can't wait for Sunday night.

    Spain's overall form tonight was nowhere near as good as Germany's against England and Argentina, I'd have a punt on De Nederlanden if I were a gambling man

    It's all set up for a really decent final IMO. Will be interesting to see Spain's tight passing game up against this strong Dutch team. Spain have won their last three games 1-0 - can the Dutch prise them open with a goal or two? We saw Holland v Cameroon in Cape Town and even though the Dutch were already through (and Cameroon out) I was really impressed with their front 3/4 - Van Persie, Van Der Vaart, Robben etc - I think they'll score. Spain will surely continue their attack-by-possession, and with the Dutchies' defence a little suspect there's bound to be some goals.

    Game on. I'm quite excited.

    S☼I Are they supposed to be as sick as you and me?

    I'm not one for predictions, and I never will be.

    I genuinely don't have a favourite; I can think of reasons I want both to win. As long as it isn't shit or ends up as a penalty shoot-out.

    When Greece won Euro 2004 it was the first time any team had won a major title by winning their last three matches 1-0. What price Spain to eclipse that, and make it 4 1-0s on the bounce?

    Wasn't it? Germany created virtually nothing tonight. One clear-cut chance all game, and after they went a goal down, nothing. Credit Spain for that.

    I'm well chuffed. It's about time. The two greatest footballing nations to have never won the World Cup.

    Spain are at bit like Arsenal circa 1988. 1-0 to the Spain.

    the defending perhaps, but they didn't seem much upfront, and Germany were terrible

    ShiftyBagLady Thinks she is a flower to be looked at

    I'm supporting Holland as I like their orange t-shirts and I bet ShiftyJunior will be defiant and support Spain. I'll send him to bed early. That'll learn 'im :mad:

    Nah. Spain are like Wenger's Arsenal in the year they went without losing.

    Can't really call it.
    Thought German would win last night but nope. I want Holland to win really, just think their football has been good.

    Should be a fantastic game........will probably end up being dull as dishwater and 1-0 to Spain........AGAIN!!

    Spain are fantastic in possession of the ball, but because they're so good it kinda makes them boring to watch IMO

    I'd like to see Holland score early on maybe even a couple and force Spain to attack with high tempo!!

    No idea who's gonna win, but I think I want the Dutch to do it - dunno why!!

    Have Spain won before?
  24. marty21

    marty21 One on one? You're crazy.

    no, neither have won before, Holland made 2 finals 74/78 and lost both. Spain had not even reached a semi-final before

    I'm going for Holland
