Paul The Psychic Octopus :D
CHELSEA61 (Chelsea) 3 years ago
He's been right about every German match so far this World Cup. I'm curious if he only does German games or if he freelances?

This story has been on the radio for the last few days, and paul the octopus has been right on every germany game so far, and he picked spain for this game, and he's right again.... Lol, but he has been wrong in the past, the euro champs final when spain beat germany 1-0, paul went for germany that day, must be a long time supporter.... Lol, I would love to hit him a good boot in the tentacles, I said tentacles.... Lol

Hahaha, it's crazy how he's so accurate! Are we still living in the 15th century? Lol
I wonder how much of it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy...
Cherich (Inter Milan) 3 years ago
I wonder what he predicts: Holland or Spain
Reidscott (Fiorentina) 3 years ago
He picked Spain.... He likes their ball control.... Kinda like tenacles...

My prediction for Paul: crispy and delicious
Reidscott (Fiorentina) 3 years ago
Is that an octopus in your pocket.... Or are you just glad to see me?
ManUK (Manchester United) 3 years ago
I think paul is Ant
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
Maybe we should invite him onto the podcast, with carl, liam, araz.... Live predictions with paul the octopus, and the lads might even win a few squid, I mean quid
ManUK (Manchester United) 3 years ago

Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
Deadliest catch.... Lol, I hear he suffers with crabs.... !
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
Well it would account for him walking sideways
Jetlifari (Arsenal) 3 years ago
Octopus don't walk though Tony, they don't have enough mussels...
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
Well if they did.... Lol
ManUK (Manchester United) 3 years ago
They crawl tony lol
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
The walking sideways was only used for effect lol, they actually swim, with a pulsing movement
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago

Paul the Octopus is a legend. Now I want a Octopus but not something small like him, a Giant Pacfic otupus will do
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
I don't think I could eat a whole one rob, but i'll give it a bash
BNetworks (Chelsea) 3 years ago
Great that Paul is in Germany, not Japan - or he'll be sushi already.

Out of curiosity on animal psychic, I placed a couple of cookies each on bowls marked Germany and Spain just before the semi-final games and my dog actually picked Spain (and the one from Germany later.... Greedy).

Tried with Netherlands and Spain - he picked Netherlands!
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
A fat doggy.... Lol, that's cruelty william.... Lmao.... The mystic mutt

ManUK (Manchester United) 3 years ago
Don't go that fetching far tony
BNetworks (Chelsea) 3 years ago
I'll post his pic here if his choice is correct - a slightly overweight jack russell, actually.... If he makes a wrong choice, anyone interested in a hot-dog?
Jetlifari (Arsenal) 3 years ago
I don't know man.... I heard sleeping dogs lie. I wouldn't trust him

A good guesser. What makes it even better is that he does not have the mental capacity or bias to really make it a hard guess
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
The prediction pets fad has really taken off after paul the octopus had made several correct predictions.
Watching tv earlier today a feature on paul has all sorts of owners claiming their pets can do the same, I seen dogs, a cockatoo, and two sea lions all picking who would win the final.
What a complete of load if testicles, its getting beyond a joke now.... Lol
BNetworks (Chelsea) 3 years ago
So far, nobody came up with a prediction made by a chimpanzee.... Or it will really make a monkey out of this world cup!
Pragathish (AC Milan) 3 years ago
......And here's Chris Toy's take on this,funny as ever!

BNetworks (Chelsea) 3 years ago
Ha, ha.... Chris just promoted Paul into an underground match--fixing syndicate mafia...
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
Ahh ffs, he's got his own cartoon strip, whats next?

Paul the Octopus on Uruguay Vs. Germany


Paul the Octopus on Netherlands Vs. Spain

BNetworks (Chelsea) 3 years ago
Foul here, Ref! The container with the Spanish flag was placed nearer to Paul and saw the mussel there first - animal instinct against psychic? LOL...
CHELSEA61 (Chelsea) 3 years ago
Is it just me or does Paul always go for the box on the right? That would be funny if it was true
Jetlifari (Arsenal) 3 years ago
Hahaha! Maybe he's "right" handed? Lol.... Wow, that was a bad pun, maybe the worst one I ever wrote here!
Shuds (Barcelona) 3 years ago
OK....After doing some research I have found that Paul the Octopus has competition. Meet Mani the Physic Parakeet and his predictions for Netherlands vs. Spain.


Now all we need is another creature to decide between Paul and Mani to figure out who is right
Pragathish (AC Milan) 3 years ago
Haha seen this on the TV just now, great link shuds!
ManUK (Manchester United) 3 years ago
I like that parakeet

Traitor lol 8 legs of filth
Rob12 (Manchester United) 3 years ago
Indeed what the hell does this octopus think he's doing
Reidscott (Fiorentina) 3 years ago
I just moved and found two cockroaches.... So I figured why not? The big ass black one picked Spain to win.... I put a piece of cake on the one side and his dead brother on the Germany side.... Very smart cockroach.... At least he got some cake before he went...
Pragathish (AC Milan) 3 years ago
Brave of ya Reid, I can't stand cockroaches
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
It just goes to prove reid, you can't have your cake and eat it.... Lol.... Splat.... !
Reidscott (Fiorentina) 3 years ago
LOL! Ton comes through once again with a beaut! You rock dude...
Soccergal293 (Barcelona) 3 years ago
OMG, I can't believe you did that! Don't you have any pets? LOL
Bloodbrothers (Barcelona) 3 years ago
f**k you paul
CHELSEA61 (Chelsea) 3 years ago
Yikes! A Barca fan and a Netherlands fan. Talk about being torn. Do you really think that an octopus can decide the fate of the final? I think he's been lucky so far. He was only 70% right at the 2008 Euros so he's bound to mess one up sooner or later
Tony (footytube staff) 3 years ago
Oh come on bloodbro, we don't want to hurt his feelings, he could make us a few squid
ManUK (Manchester United) 3 years ago
I hate him too, it's all his fault D:
Bloodbrothers (Barcelona) 3 years ago
Sorry tony but I want to hurt his feelings, its all his fault.    Stupid octupus, I hope they make soup with him
