spain to win 2-0, holland are good but seriously even as an arsenal fan van persie has been useless, robbens one dimensional by cutting in. basically shut sneijder out spin win. they are lucky van bommel is playing cus he shud have had 2 red cards in both of the last 2 games

Two very, very talented teams. So hard to choose a side to cheer for, thus I won't. Nonetheless, I am thoroughly enamored with Dunn's writing.

did two small little bets at the start of the WC, Villa Top Scorer and Spain to WIn 16/1 and Villa top Scorer 8/1, can't see the Dutch stopping me collecting my winnings on Monday, and i have the Octopus to back me up.

Spain will try to control the ball and stifle Holland as they did Germany. If the Dutch score and I think they have enough to do so I don't think Spain has the firepower up front to keep up in an open game. Holland to win 2-1.

Shinovene Immanuel (Aston Villa fan) says...

Well, Dunn got it very right. I think Robben will see champions being crowned this year for the second time, simply because Spain has the quality, players at their respective positions. A single mistake, will cause Holland a tear. My prediction is 3-2 for the SPANISH. Like Dunn, Xavi also one of the few players at this have made me laugh out loud because he's so good. Iniesta comes second...

Is that or is that not Luka Modric on the cover of this story?!

Holland to win spain have had poor road to the final whereas Holland have killed off brazil and have cruised passed the group stages aswell Spain on the other hand might be good on paper but that isn't put onto the field their midfield isn't as good as people make it out to be and their defence is that good either. Robben will rule the wing as usual and van bommel will tank every spanish player in his way. Holland to win with a RVP goal 2-0

Chris Crook says...

My heart says Holland but my head says Spain... If I was a betting man... and I am... its one of those curios games that you will often find yourself chasing value for money... on paper Spain are far superior... from the midfield up they simply ooze quality...world class players a plenty.. the dutch however have an amazing team spirit...with three workhorses in midfield in v.bommel, de jong and kuyt allowing the others to provide the sparks... however against brazil for large spells they looked completely phased... brazil kinda gave the victory to them by self destructing as opposed to being outplayed.... Spain and a better equiped brazil.. an organised brazil... I can see a 2-0 spain win.. in saying that.. if I get 3/1 odds on the dutch.. 'I'll a piece of that thanks.. haha Greed is good!!!

Spain to win. Their midfield is so good that van bommel may get sent off on Sunday night. However, if the Dutch play De Jong and Van Bommel and get in between Xavi and Xabi Alonso, they mat be ableto break it up. Villa has to have his shooting boots on though, because Torres hasn't really turned up. Pique and Puyol must not be pulled 20-30 yards apart our Robben and Sneijder will punish them. Villa to score the winner in a 2-1 Spanish victory.
