OT: Today is the day of FRANCE
Posted by: TooTough ()
Date: July 9, 2006 12:10

Now that my own team made a remarkable 3rd spot all my
wishes are with France. Today┬┤s shirt: Licks Parisiennes 2003.

Those were the days...

I think France have to play the game first... And win it. And may be Italy don't want them to win. So it might just as well be the day for Italy...

The 2 team have the same way to play so it's gonna be very close-fought

Actually a non-parisian who would walk down the streets of that city would simply not imagine that France is going to play a final today. It is simply as though being at this stage of the competition means the end of the road. I ain't keen on statistics, but is there a team who won 2 finals in 8 years ? British brokers have Italian as favorites. French team appeared to me exhausted at the end of their semi-final. So, I suppose it is the day of Italy.

several times - two sides have actually retained the trophy

Italy 1934 and 1938
Brazil in 1958, 1962 and 1970
Argentina in 1978 and 1986
Brazil in 1994 and 2002

(the other winners, for the record were :

Uruguay 1930 and 1950
West Germany 1954, 1974 and 1990
England 1966
Italy 1982
France 1998 )

I'm not so confident in the french's victory.
Con : tiredness and one day less to rest, 10 different scorers for 11 goals in the italian team.
Pro : France never failed in final (1998, 1984, 2000, 1984 olympic games and two cups of confederation), Henry scored many times against italian teams in the past, France is the only nation to win during this tournement after 0-1 against Spain.
I really wish to hear one more time : "je suis fier de jouer dans le stade des champions du monde" in Mick's mouth.

Pros to Italy:

1982 Italy is World Champion on Jul 11th

A)
Jul 11th 1982 the Stones play Italy
Jul 11th 2006 the Stones play Italy

cool smiley
1982: Mick Jagger predicts the final score of the game 3-1 for Italy and he's right
2006: Mick Jagger predicts the final score for the game 1-0 for Italy, no extra time, just wait and see winking smiley

C)
1982 semifinal game Italy - Poland, won by Italy * A Polish Pope is in charge
2006 semifinal game Italy - Germany, won by Italy * A German Pope is in charge

D)
1982 a huge scandal hits the Italian football federation
2006 a huge scandal hits the Italian football federation

There are other recurrences, but I guess this is enough winking smiley

Beside a Nostradamus driven confidence, we have a very strong team and I guess the game will be very much open.

Can you imagine if we win? How pumped the crowd would be?

If Italy wins, I'm sure that La Juve, Milano and other Italian clubs won't be punished for what they've done

Yes dunhill, I have imagined that indeed! I hear the atmosphere is fantastic down there in the first place, but if Italy win I think the crowd will be absolutely crazy. And that will affect the band, they will be thrilled to play such a great audience. Proffesional as Jagger is, he will probably enter the stage wearing the italian footbal shirt. Just two days left...It will be HOT!

Why can't it be a draw and then BOTH sides win ?

It's obvious that FRANCE will be the Winners !! All that has to happen is a few fans in the stadium in Berlin throw down some small Pizza's on the field and it will totally distract the Italian team....it's an old trick. Congratulations to Italy for being #2 !!! (actually Micks Brain doesn't care THAT much because he likes Italy too, just likes France more) LET THE GAME BEGIN !!! just hours away....

I suspect if there are lots of goals it will be Italys day. If its a 1-0 it will be in Frances favour. I'm therefore rooting for Italy. But I've called just about every game wrong so far!

Allez les Bleus!!!!!

Great matchup between two great teams. WHoever controls the midfield today will win...and that advantage goes to Zidane.

I call France 1-0, and just hope it doesn't come down to a dive in the box.

WC today...Stones on Tuesday. Europe's a great place to be!!

Extra time on its way.

I really hope this does not go to penalty kicks.

It would be a sad end.
