Howay man! :tongue: I might not have seen the match but I am sure Germany didn't do too bad after all. Let's see how the match against Spain goes. My German colleague said he is waiting for the Okrakel or something. That allegedly is a tiny octopus which tells which team's going to win the match. Well we'll see. I told my colleague to let me know as soon as the Okrakel (or summit) has spoken :spin: .

Yes I've heard about that Octopus too, but I don't believe in bad luck.
I've got to admit Germany was clearly superior against Argentina and England.

I even think Germany has what it takes to become the world champion, but Spain is a strong competitor.
I think it's going to be a thrilling match! - My the better team win!

Peace,
snarly

It's HOWAY snarly. That's a fixed expression and since we're in the Chatterbox, I am allowed to use it :) .

Aye the better team will win. I mean Germany has made it to the semi-finals a couple of times but never made it to the finals. So we will see. :)

Oh sorry, I didn't know that.
But I felt kind of stupid correcting you anyway. (Is this right?)

I think you are in the dark about the German soccer history!
Germany made it to the finals 6 times! Only Brazil made it more often (7 times).

Peace,
snarly!

No bother snarly, you can't know this expression. And please do not feel stupid correcting my mistakes if I make any. We all make mistakes you see ;) . Oh and yes, that was correct.

You are right, I know sod all about football to be honest. I am more of a rugby fan :lol:. But despite the fact that I normally support England, and despite the fact that I prefer rugby over football I have to admit that I am proud of the German team. They're not doing bad at all ;) .

Octopus Paul predicted that Spain will win! :roll:

But in 08, at the Euopean Championship (final match) Paul said that Germany will win against Spain and was wrong. :wink:
Well, I'm looking forward to this match. :cool:
Though I really do not know whom I should support.

I've heard about it, ibex.. we will see :) . I know both teams are playing very well, so either way a good team will make it into the finals.

See, even the animal world is against Germany. That's a clear signal!
Because animals have something called instinct. :wink: And that divine thing is quite unerring! :angel:

So I wish Germany :luck:, because that's just what they'll need if they want to make the impossible possible!

Hi caro64!

I'm sorry, but I gotta disappoint you.
Cos Germany won't win.

If you had written the postings below, you would have noticed that "Paul the Octopus" has spoken!
And his message is not very pleasant for the German fans!

Snarly, snarly!
Even I as Austrian with my two anti-German-brothers have to admit that they play well. And even when Spain wins, they played excellent football. Austria is the state with the most neighbours taking place in the world championship. And although there are many annoying things about the German and our relation to them, we still could try to be proud on them, couldn't we? Though we aren't responsible for their skills. But the German fan's aren't neither, are they? :wink:

You mustn't take my enviousness against Germany seriously.

The German team played very well -beyond question.

Ah, so it was obligatory, just to save your face as an Austrian. :wink: :lol:
No offence, please.

You see? - I'm not from the ground up against Germany, I'm well aware that Germany is a good team!
But they are still a thorn in my flesh. But that results from a lack of insight, i guess!

Yes, yes. A lack of insight. Who doesn't want to listen, has to learn it the hard way, hm? :mrgreen:

Oh, dear. Was have you done with me? Now I'm defending Germany! :shock: Good gracious...
I fear you have educational effect on me. :mrgreen:

Well, OK. Enough now. After all we don't want to bore the others.
