    Cant wait for the start of the match. Paul has given its verdict.
    Well the only time it was wrong was in the finals of euro '08, when it picked germany over spain.
    Hoping it has got it wrong again... (statistically improbable)

    I suspect that many German fans now want to hurl Paul onto the ice during next year's NHL playoffs.

    For a few years, but only calls Germany games. Germans want to fry Paul and dip in hot sauce, not necessarily in this order. Many dinner death threats are going on and Paul is under Bundespolizei protection!

    Wise,wise octopus. Good boy!
    Spain shall be victorious. They are peeking. They hold the ball. They have the personel, they have the momentum and when the opposition get in a position to counter, they are too tired, as were germany, despite being a young side.

    Octopi is actually a good example of a hypercorrection and the correct plural form is octopussies.
