    At least that's my masterplan.
    And an excellent plan it proved to be! I reckon that is 3 points to you, 1.75 for me and nothing for the rest. Now where is that smug looking smiley!

    That Holland result puts Grailhunter and Dave in 5th and 6th respectively. Evil Gazebo now top followed by Pubsignman and Gann. In fact thereís only about four points separating the top 6 so all to play for, especially as the points for correct predictions increase as we get to the later stages of the tournament.

    There are only four of us who have made our predictions for the semi-finals so far so get your picks in soon. First game is tomorrow Tuesday 6th and the second game the following day. Both kick-off at 7.30pm, unless of course you are in a Wetherspoons who, according to their fixture cards and some posters I saw yesterday, seem to think the games start at 3pm.

    Iím one of the few who went for Uruguay in the first semi-final, I really thought they had a good chance. Itís now 3-1 to Holland and Iím feeling a bit

    Grailhunter is the only one right on the money if the score stays as it is.

    Can't believe I am one of the 2 that got it right at 3 - 2 to Holland. Wanted to give it to Uruguay due to sweepstake, but sense made me give it to Holland.

    That late goal for Uruguay did it for you and Crosste Gill, well done.

    Bah! Last night's semi-final was the first time I have failed to get my prediction in on time. Sodding Orange bloody mobile internet. Mind you, I was trying to log in to predict a 2-1 win for Germany, so it didn't matter, really, except that now I can't see everyone's predictions. Anyone call it spot-on?

    Belated congratulations to Pubsignman - I was in 2nd place behind him going into the final, so needed to better his prediction to win. I submitted my 1-0 to Spain, to discover his prediction was ... 1-0 to Spain! So I knew I had no chance before the game even kicked off.

    Well done again, and thanks to Millay for the initial idea - I'd never heard of SportGuru before, and thought it was a great competition.
    And you can really taste the hops!
