    But yes. I thought it was going to pot a little in the quarters, but looking back I wouldn't have it any other way.

    Everyone says best ever, I won't go that far because I haven't witnessed 15 of them first-hand. But it has to be up there. A revival after a few...more lukewarm ones.

    There are quite a few positive things I can say about this final:

    - Germany won. And they deserved it.
    - Klose won the World Cup he deserved as well.
    - Everyone in the country "has it inside". "Messi we love you", he loses the final and now he's crap again to everyone.
    - "Brazil tell me how it feels" will disappear forever.

    I don't understand how people make such a big deal of a penalty.

    I didn't do too bad, had Germany World Champions, Muller Golden Ball and Boot, Neuer best keeper and young player I couldn't decide between James, Gotze and Neymar.

    Granted none of my predictions involved Costa Rica getting to the quarters, Holland beating anyone 5-1, Brazil conceding 7 in the whole tournament or James Rodriguez being one of the very best.

    Just testament to it being a great tournament. :tup:

    Perhaps it just used a hacking tool to manipulate the hours.

    Pretty easy to hack a Twitter actually.

    RTE had a fantastic ending as the anchor was doing his last game tonight after 40 years. Wouldn't really be interesting to people outside Ireland though.

    Speaking of which, the official young player award went to Paul Pogba, ahead of Memphis Depay and Raphael Varane.
    It was only those born in 1993 or younger eligible, by the way.

    I thought they were evicted because Brazil had to start saving WC money once their team was out :lol:

    I half expect a waiter to come over and say "if your going to stay you have to buy something!"

    I think Robben was the best player.

    What a game! What a world cup! Absolutely fantastic! I'm really glad to see the Germans win but you have to think about Argentina and the other teams who worked their butts of as well. I can't wait for EURO 2016 and Russia 2018 World Cup (the only bad part is that fox broadcasts it here then :( )!!!

    Meh. That kind of goal you see very often. Flying headers lobbing the ball over the goalie, not so much. :D

    Make your own prediction status on Twitter
    Step 1: Create a tweet or several one day before a big event
    Step 2: Wait for the outcome and edit those tweets
    Step 3: ???
    Step 4: Profit!!!

    A close call between those two, yes. It all boils down to personal opinion.

    Oh, you could even throw Cahill's goal in there as well.
