Simple, Cold Predictions For WC2010
Ant (Liverpool) 6 years ago

In this topic, please jot your predictions for the top four teams in the forthcoming World Cup.

This isn't for fan valuation or anything, just bragging rights if it proves you are right. I would ask that you don't go into a huge explanation of why you choose the teams you have chosen, just simply write your prediction and maybe a line or two afterwards explaining the winner.

I'd also ask that you use your head, not your heart, when making predictions.

Good luck everyone!

Moussinho (Valencia) 6 years ago
What is it whith you guys and ivory coast?!?!?
They're not tht good! Has anyone here watched the AFC? They don't have any tactics and all they do is play it to drogba.... At least tht what they TRY to do.

That doesn't even matter.... Once they come together it will be a much different story. It is the best from a nation.... Not just a club

Ant (Liverpool) 6 years ago
1st: Spain
2nd: Brazil
3rd: Italy
4th: England

I think it's Spain's time to shine, that is if Torres can stay away from injury
Millzallah (Barcelona) 6 years ago
I think even if torres is injured spain will still prevail. Now if both torres and vila are injured then its a situation
Essien6 (Chelsea) 6 years ago
Spain can shine without torres. Torres doesn't do very well in international games. I think the important one is david villa
VeljaSrbin (FK Partizan Beograd) 6 years ago
1-Brazil (Well balanced, deep squad)  2-Spain (Defensively not as good as Brazil)  3-Germany  4-Argentina
Phillfc7 (Liverpool) 6 years ago
1. Spain  2. Brazil  3. Argentina  4. France
Hulanji14 (Liverpool) 6 years ago
France? I doubt
TheTorresBounce (Liverpool) 6 years ago
1. Spain 2. England! 3. Argentina 4. Germany.... Italy to go out in the group stages, France in the QF's

Spain seem like a force to be handled with cation, their free, flowing attacking football will just outclass England in the final
Ant (Liverpool) 6 years ago
I'm liking that everyone above has picked Argentina to get to the semis at least, that threw me. I guess they are a quality side even if they struggled to qualify
TheTorresBounce (Liverpool) 6 years ago
Yea I think they'l get it together come the world cup, too much quality in their side
Daniel85 (NK Dinamo Zagreb) 6 years ago
Semifinalists: Brazil, Spain, Germany, England/France. Germans are always Germans
Oldglory0002 (Arsenal) 6 years ago
Brazil, even though they are extremely entertaining to watch, will end up getting knocked out before the semifinals. The pressure will prove to be too much for such a young team. Next WC: Brazil champions (or at least runners-up). My semifinals prediction for the summer: 1 - Argentina 2 - Ivory Coast 3 - Germany 4 - you. S.... Don't laugh, I'm a little biased
Hatta (AC Milan) 6 years ago
France?  I don't think so. This team will be beaten easily
KNVBKOP (Liverpool) 6 years ago
I think Netherlands can upset Brazil.  So semis: Netherlands, Spain, England, Germany
Nippro (Tottenham Hotspur) 6 years ago
One of the most accurate predictions wow
Midssi10 (Barcelona) 6 years ago
Except England, well, don't blame yourself knvbkop, blame rooney.... Lol...
Esso02 (Manchester United) 6 years ago
I would say Brazil clinches it again with Spain in second place. England & Nigeria/Ivory Coast would round up the final four (I pick Nigeria cos although they're currently in a rut, they can be very unpredictable; Ivory Coast also has a lot of potential: think about Salomon Kalou, Emmanuel Eboue, Kolo & Yaya Toure plus Didier Drogba with Didier Zokora thrown in for good measure)
Sergio 6 years ago
Winner- Spain    The Final - Brazil v Spain    Runner Ups - England - Germany
ManUK (Manchester United) 6 years ago
Winner: Spain
2nd: Brasil
3rd: England
4th: Germany
5th: Netherlands

Hopefully England will make it to the final though
Hatta (AC Milan) 6 years ago
Like This...
Dtouch (Ajax) 6 years ago
Some of you are ridiculous.... France an argentina?!? Past glories don't count for anything in THIS Year's tourny.... Gotta' look at the last world cup/continental cups and qualifying.... France got immediately kicked out and barely(shouldnt) qualified.

My prediction:

Spain, Netherlands, Brazil, Germany.... Won't say in what order, that's impossible...
Karmatoh8 (Arsenal) 6 years ago
"Gotta' look at the last world cup.... "

France were finalists in the last world cup, and werejust as unfancied then as they are now after failing to score in 2002. You can never discount France. Holland went out in the second round of the last 2 tournaments so it's just as likely to see Argentina muddle through as the dutch.

So to be contentious....

France, Portugal, Spain, Brazil, in no particular order.

Exactly.... Can't discount anyone.... There is always a surprise

Now that's an interesting prediction
SoviGuy (Liverpool) 6 years ago
I think it's a great prediction...
Dtouch (Ajax) 6 years ago
I said it first
Bobby50 (Manchester United) 6 years ago
Netherlands are a great team. But if you look up their records, they have never won anything  Just pointing that out
SirStig (Arsenal) 6 years ago
But they've always had the quality to
BHfanatic (AC Milan) 6 years ago
Totally agree with these comments the Netherlands always had really good players in their squad previously and this coming world cup but they don't get to far in the competition
SuperBlauGrana (Barcelona) 6 years ago
That's why they have a big chance....
Because they never did Win the WC....
I do remember we had a thrilling Final though back in 74ish....
And we won the EC back in '88

.... The Dutch are really tired of being a great team.... With great players.... But with no glory....
With van Persie, Robben, Sneijder and van Bommel they got the ingredients to get really far....
Davandamme (Ajax) 6 years ago
Don't forget Elia! Agree with the final four, although I think we'll see an African squad surprise us...
Fussball (Barcelona) 6 years ago
Semifinalists -England vs Netherlands , Spain vs Greece
Funny it may look Try it over here

KNVBKOP (Liverpool) 6 years ago
I like this prediction. It would be interesting to see greece make to the semis.
I put Germany, because they always produce on the world stage
