It's Nearly Over...Until The Next Time

OK, so my semi-final predictions were, er, 100% wrong. That is the reason why I'm not a professional gambler. At least Uruguay gave it a go, though. What was up with Germany - it was like they didn't realise they were in semi-final and just couldn't motivate themselves. After the first 20 minutes or so, I could see the game only going one way. Although I was surprised it took Spain until 70-odd minutes to score.

Anyway, so we have a Holland v Spain final to look forward to. I'm not going to predict the winner (although it will be Spain) but I'm hoping against hope that both teams will show more attacking dynamism than they have so far. Pragmatic football has got both sides all the way, but it isn't that much fun to watch.

I'd like to see a very early goal from one team, which will force the other to play with more attacking intent, thereby creating a more exciting final than the one, I fear, we're about to see.

You are wrong (again! XD)about speculative play, spanish style is VERY ofesive, sadly spain lacks decisive players besides Villa, he is very good but he is only one.Iniesta and Xavi are great game creators but not scorers. Look at the euro when Torres was in good shape, this very same team scored bags full of goals.
