Thread: World Cup.

  1. #1

    World Cup.

    Since our cars, and my bike all come from the Fatherland, I've been cheering for Germany this time round, especially as England played so very poorly - just like they make cars really!

    Anyhow turns out they are doing rather well, and after the last two matches I'd say Germany are a shoo in for the final, and for the favorites for the title.

    Realizing that the German team is a formidable opponent, I hope for a re-match of the unforgettable '74 Final, with a different outcome of course !

    Brazil got nobbled by the Netherlands today, so I'd put my money on it being Germany vs Netherlands in the final, and of those two I'd put my dollar on the Fatherland!

    Ditto, but my Fatherland ain't Germany.

    I respectfully disagree with your wishes.

    Beating up the England is always great, beating up Argentina is excellent, but beating up Holland is best.

    But for us it will be Spain first, so let's see how far we can get.
    Best regards, Dieter

    How many people in the Netherlands would you know if Germans hadn't built the Z8?
    So it must be Germany for the World Cup.

    How many Germans let me flog their Alpina around one of the greatest road courses in NA (Infineon/Sears Point)? NONE! I'm going with the Netherlands!

    Ahh, but if you'd only come on some of the Z8 Club trips you'd have a different feeling, Z4M & M6 convertibles to tear through the Alps for a week at a time trumps a few laps at Sears, I say "Go Germany!!"

    We are not there yet, Spain is waiting for us in about 2 hours from now.

    If we manage to win today, it will be easy because statistics never fail:



    sorry that there is no ring for the Netherlands...
    Best regards, Dieter

    yep, we missed the final for good reasons. That was not the team that had kicked out England and Argentina.

    Good luck for both teams.
    Best regards, Dieter

    Not really a result anyone here was hoping for or expecting, but the action over at Silverstone kept the weekend interesting!
