I'd much prefer a German victory, but doubt it'll occur.

Hey Thaddeus - I know you want that last place but I think you've missed tomorrows games.

Ignore that comment. I'm an idiot.

Re: FIFA WC Tipping comp

Here's nothing (as opposed to No One):

Friday 2nd
Brazil 2 - 2 Netherlands (Brazil)
Uruguay 2 - 0 Ghana

Saturday 3rd
Argentina 2 - 2 Germany (Germany)
Spain 2 - 0 Paraguay


(My "system" has Argentina having a very slight advantage over Germany, which I'm translating into a draw after extra time. Once penalties arrive, I'm backing Germany. My "system" has the same closeness of result for Brazil and the Netherlands. Here I'm counting on Brazil's greater experience to carry them past the Dutch.)

Re: FIFA WC Tipping comp

I suspect it means he expects the result will come in 'added/additional extra time'. I saw this on one of Py's and puzzled over it myself...

AET - usual abbreviation in the UK for "After Extra Time"...

Saturday:

Argentina 1 - 2 Germany
Spain 2 - 1 Paraguay

Ah, that makes more sense than my somewhat redundant guess!

The trouble was, my "system" predicted a very close match in Brazil's favour. So, reluctantly, I stuck with that and now you've given me the (very slight) possibility of recovering those four points.


Not that I will, you understand.

Brazil is one up with a wonderful through ball / run.

Re: FIFA WC Tipping comp

Agreed (though the Dutch version of "the English defence" made it a bit easier for them).


But the referee has noticed that they're hacking down Robben on a regular basis (which may be why Robben keeps finding himself on the edge of the Brazilian penalty area not shooting or passing but surrounded by defenders).


Or am I being too cynical?
