Me v Paul The Octopus Posted by Rajiv Jul 7, 2010 14:59:13 GMT 8 Quote Select PostDeselect PostLink to PostMemberGive GiftBack to Top Post by Rajiv on Jul 7, 2010 14:59:13 GMT 8 I'm not usually into predicting outcomes of matches, but despair at the quality of punditry everywhere led me to give it a go on another forum before the World Cup quarterfinals, as follows: "I would not be surprised if: * The Netherlands upset Brazil. * Uruguay beat Ghana. * Germany "upset" Argentina. * Spain beat Paraguay. * The Netherlands beat Uruguay * Germany beat Spain. A repeat of the 1974 World Cup Final, which Germany dominate but this time, The Netherlands win, in a reversal of fortune 36 years on.5 out of 5 so far, and I have Germany to beat Spain in today's game, but Paul The Octopus, who is 5 for 5 in predicting the outcome of Germany's games so far this World Cup, has gone for Spain. Paul got the the result of Germany v Spain at Euro 2008 wrong - maybe it's his bogey fixture.
