The 2014 World Cup final: choose you team
  
pollcode.com free polls 

It is a brand new poll for the purposes of votes cast so you can tick the box that appeals to you – the Mullermen or Messiahs – even if you voted in previous rounds.

The dreary second semi-final is out of the way, though I did come across a Sunderland supporter at Twitter, Chris Weatherspoon (“recreational writing – usually on SAFC – alongside various modern life moans”) who thought it had been good: “Think I’m the only person who actually enjoyed that match last night.”

Anyway, I hope to have a special Brazil 2014 “Who are You?” later, with a supporter of each finalist telling us how it is. For now, get some votes cast. Taking account of those received in earlier stages, Germany are narrowly ahead*. I shall be ticking the other box.


* Not so narrowly now, a few hours later: Germany now well in the lead

    So it’s goedenacht to my lovely Dutchie boys and guten morgen to Germany. To be brutally honest Holland were bloody awful last night (Argentina no better). The ball went sideways so often I thought it was a Ray Wilkins masterclass. Not wanting to lose became more important than wanting to win. Can’t see the bronze place playoff being much better.

    Germany all the way. For all of Messi’s undoubted brilliance, Argentina are tainted by association with Maradonna. Ite a shame lineker was too nice, when the hand of God complained the England had sided with Argentina’s opponents once (Iran?), to reply ” because you, Diego, are a cheat, and not just against England, and you have no understhanding of the word ‘sport'”
