Mani is a fraud. :thmbdown:

Paul is known for predicting finals wrong!

Holland has this one in the bag!

I did, I did!

It's simple. Paul always goes to the right just like Robben always goes to the left.

So how did this predicting thing come about in the first place? They just randomly thought "I wonder what team I should bet on for tonight's match... oh hey, let's ask the octopus!"

If we're gonna rely on everything that Paul the Octopus predicts, then we might as well start asking him for his opinion surrounding the outcomes of the upcoming Euro 2012 qualifiers and friendlies. :rollani:

i hope not because he's never wrong and it would take all the excitement out of football if we know the result beforehand
