As I have £ 50 on Argentina at 5/1 since start of tournament I will be supporting them

I wonder how many will watch this game on ITV ?

I'm leaning towards the Germans at the moment.

The Argies haven't really inspired me as a team, just moments of brilliance from the odd player - obviously special mention to Messi. In light of what's happened to Brazil, the Argies winning on their own turf would hurt that much more.

The Germans are due a big reward for having had the balls to re-invent their football after the 5-1 England victory of yesteryear <Glares at the FA>. And if so, good for them.

I will because I have to watch online & itv' s player is far more stable and better than BBC' s useless bloody iPlayer. They really need to license in some technology for that

just wondering what will happen...

will it be a cagey affair? with Germans focusing on stopping Messi... or will it be an open game, maybe a nice high scoring final.

Will be amazed if it isn't cagey to start with but an early goal would change all that

Same as the argie semi, needed an early goal and the longer without one the more cagey it got

OMG! I really want to see Messi doing history tomorrow, hope he has the game of his life. I've been aching to see him on a World Cup final for about 6 years now, hope he can live up to the expectations (even if he hasn't been that amazing this past few months).

So apparently tomorrow's final is North Korea vs Portugal after North Korea dominated the group stage 7-0 vs Japan, 4-0 vs the US and 2-0 vs China. Guess we just didnt get the memo:rolleyes:

Classic Kim Jong Un.

Well I predicted before the WC that if a South American team was to win it'd be Argentina, and if it were a European team it would be Germans. Either way I'll be right. :p

Hoping to see Messi do it once and for all.

Hope Germany win. As far as I'm concerned Argentina don't deserve to be anywhere near the final.

Reckon 2-0 or 2-1 to Ze Germans.

Got a bet on Muller to score first, with a 2-1 win.

No Di Maria of Aguero for Argentina- I'm not sure if Di Maria is even on the bench but if he is that's 2 amazing substitutes to bring on.

Worzel won't turn up, so all up to lahm, kroos, muller to drive their game.

If Demichelis doesn't take a shit, 'Tina should win imo. Still going with my pick.
