    Wearing down the big oafs finally made made them fall.

    Some two very nice countries (standard of living and people) in the football final and their first ever World cup on Sunday, so goody.

    Spain will be slight favourites I think, but I'd rather the cloggies did it as they were very unlucky twice back in the 70s.

    Looks like a Netherlands victory to me.

    I'm glad I didn't put £300 on Germany.........

    I will be fairly happy whoever wins, both countries have contributed more than their fair share to the history and culture of the game and it'll be nice to have a new winner.

    If I had to pick a winner, I would go with the Netherlands. Spain play an attractive passing game and are great at keeping the ball but goals win games and despite the possession they have enjoyed they have struggled to score. Having said that, they don't let many in and I like the attitude that lets them brings on Fernando Torres when they're 1-0 up with ten minutes to go.

    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

    I heard it was because in Devon a McQuarterPounder costs £3, while a McChickenNugget only costs a £1.
