Italy or Spain?

Who to support?

On the positive side:

  • Spain remain excellent. Their touch, skill, ball-retention, ability to adapt is second to none. They could make history by achieving 3 straight tournament wins. In many ways they deserve it, such a talented group of player.
  • Italy, from adversity (squad depleted due to the match fixing scandal) they have played well throughout the tournament, from holding Spain in the first match, onwards. In beating the Germans, they put in a tournament winning display.
On the negative side:

  • Spain, utterly boring, always playing within themselves. No bleedin' strikers. Hope they lose.
  • Italy, corrupt, hope they lose.
On balance - I hope Italy win, Balotelli scores the winner, abuses the ref, hugs his adopted mum and then throws a firework celebration in his broom cupboard.

Bets for the final:

  • Italy to win
  • Balotelli to score
  • Balotelli to be sent off
