Great comedy! Make the Spanish think they are going to win then score a million goals. And crown it with a slapstick routine from the Spanish goalie!

Yeah, hilarious for those of us that drew Spain in the office sweepstake and smugly gave it large.
No probs - Spain just have to beat Chile then Australia to make the last 16, then beat Brazil and they're into the quarters :)
make sure you restore your pride MD by slotting a load past Honduras (not sure when Spain get to play them).
I drew that puppy during the sweepstake. I'm holding out for the 'most goals conceded' prize.
Tiki taki is dead....long live tiki taki.
The new football is running at the heart of defences at speed....like Sterling and Barkley do.
It's ours to lose.
I particularly enjoyed the comedy cameo from Torres at the end.
Consolation goal on a plate, couldn't miss from there, but did.
He's done it before, but it's still funny.

I got Cote D'Ivoire in the pub sweepie, and Mr B got Honduras.
My mate who knows fuck all about football, and hadn't realised the World Cup was on, drew The Netherlands. She texted me last night to as if it was a good thing that The Netherlands had won.
Torres looks haunted... like a man who's forgotten everything he once knew about football.
The shock result might encourage a lot of teams to 'give it a go'... including England.
An unexpectedly enjoyable couple of hours.
Torres played for chelsea
Fabregas will play for Chelsea soon.
Ho ho ...
Jeni, your post reminds me of a previous world cup when I organised a fantasy football league in the office I worked in at the time. While all the blokes who fancied themselves as experts (myself included) deliberated over team selection and made comments like 'I'm building my team around Cannavaro' and crap like that one of the young ladies in the typing pool picked her team based solely on the players she fancied when looking through their pictures. Needless to say she won by a mile and pocketed the entire pot, seems to be as good a system as any.....
