So glad to be wrong

Never was I happier about being wrong on so many counts.

I was wrong about France. One spoonful of humble pie.

I was wrong about Brazil and Ronaldo (bless you, fatso!). Two spoonfuls of humble pie.

I was wrong about Mexico going further than Portugal.
And about Holland and Marco van Basten. And about the Czech Republic. And about England playing Germany and losing (I wish I was right here, though).

But I'm very happy about the quarter-final line-ups. 6 world champions in the final 8 - although 1 of them have a team where nobody was born when they last won the blessed thing!

Oh, what the heck... leave the whole damn pie!

keropok no worries, everyone makes mistakes, just look at England (1970, 1974, 1978, 1982, 1986, 1990, 1994, 1998, 2002)....hahahaha!

adios Espanyol.. farewell Raul..

Brasil's passing like shit last night, and Adriano sucked big time.

Luckily Ghana didn't finish off their chances very well.

Mr D said...

So many teams that what else can you do. With Spain going out I am glad it was at the hands of the French. Seeing ZZ do his thang and magic was special!

VIVA LES BLUES VIVA.

Just For Your Infomation

27 June 2006-France 3-Spain 1.

27 June.It’s certainly the date of one of the best days in French football history, 27th June 1984, when they beat Spain 2-0 in the final of the European Championships in Paris, the high point for Michel Platini and his generation in the national team.

!mamabola: Damn right I did, lady! Me and 6,172,356 others I think.

!daniel: Dude, in my last reply I said it all la. Here's what England will say if they make it to the semis and lose:

1994 - skipped it so we cld relax
1998 - 2nd round
2002 - Q-finals
2006 - S-finals (touch-wood NOT)
2010 - Champions???

!spiller: The Adriano incident was sad, bro... poor Ghanaians. They played damned well, tho...

!mr d: Zizou was special indeed. Vieira, Ribery, Sagnol were all mega!

!"9": Err... ok, dude :) Eh, number 9 is what ah?

!anonymous: Wow, thanks for that, friend. Good info.

well said, my thoughts exactly...

"6 world champions in the final 8 - although 1 of them have a team where nobody was born when they last won the blessed thing!"

HAHAHAHA, very good. Also don't forget that England are the only WC winners (forget Uruguay) who have not won the current trophy.

visithra said...

its turned out to be very interesting matches i would have preferred arg n ger meeting in the semis though but then we get good games ;)

Keropok said...

!shabby: Aiyoh... you and your 'screw-dictions' again. Dude, please don't quit your day job!

!mong: Ditto... Where you Friday's match?

!anonymous: We didn't think they could do it, but they did! Allez les Blues!

!laksa: Same frequency, eh? Hope you're glad you were wrong too.

!mamabola: Wow! Mamabola... spot-on observation. I think they're unlikely do change that fact... on this count I hope I'm right!!!

!visithra: Super weekend indeed. Enjoy!

Daniel Franklin Gomez said...

I hope Scolari (Mr Motivator) will continue his hoodoo over Eriksson's (Mr Magoo) England....hehehe

Keropok said...

!Daniel: Scolari didn't win a World Cup for nothing. That too with unfancied Brazil who muddled through qualification in 2002.

And he dragged a rag-tag group of talented but haphazard Portuguese this far in two consecutive tournaments.

Logic says Portugal should prevail. But then again, England always seem to defy logic (curse the bast**ds!)

Metria said...

Keropok, I am now number 2 in my competition, terror or not? My predictions more accurate than yours :P

ghee said...

Hi there!Thanx for dropping by!

WC rocks!!

Keropok said...

!metria: Fluke shots don't count le...

Why is it, every Wulkap the enthusiasts, arm-chair critics and so-called 'experts' (like urs truly) study the teams, players, strategies kao2, but then when it comes down to it, flers like Metria who even by their own admittance don't care too much abt the game beyond the 'hot' players and some rudimentary knowledge... always top the polls, pools and win more money?

No blardy justice.

Metria... b4 you say it, "No I'm NOT jeles..."

!Ghee: Likewise. Football unites. :)

Metria said...

Don't bluff, Keropok. You are damn jeles!

Yarilyn said...
