At last, the relentless pace of the World Cup slackens enough to permit a little quiet reflection. Especially by Fabio Capello, Carlos Quieroz, Raymond Domenech and Marcello Lippi, but also by Williamsbach, who has been promising a ‘Spillstake update for a couple of weeks now.
Having tried and tried and failed, despite Tincanman’s best advice, to produce a pretty picture (something to do with jpegs, my laptop and incompetence), I have downloaded a screenshot to a Word document. There’s a link above; hope it works!
In summary, Garethim (Spain), Daddypig (Uruguay), Mrs Bluepeter (Ghana), Barbryn (Argentina), Gordonimmel (Germany), Toffeeboy (Holland), Cauliflower (Paraguay) and Alimunday (Brazil) are through to the quarter finals. Everyone else, sadly, is out, including Cameroon who were both the first team knocked out and my pick, not necessarily a coincidence.
I’m still waiting for prize confirmation from DarceysDad, CaroleBristol, Bethnoir (second), Mrs Bluepeter, Toffeeboy and Cauliflower. Let’s have ’em soon, people….
Holland v Spain in the final, anyone?
