"Outrageous" predictions thread

Recommended Posts

I'd take England winning on pens as it means we'd be out of the group

yep quarter finals at worse which yes is almost an outrageuous prediction in itself but no for me england winning on pens really is the definition of outrageous and one we'd all love aswell.

Lambert to miss a penalty.

One game to be abandoned.

One player to collapse on the field (dehydration/exhaustion).

Lambert missing a penalty really would be outrageous!

Yet England still win the shootout, thats it nothing can top that except maybe Australia winning the world cup.

The sad thing is we have some decent penalty takers now in Lambert and Baines adding to the usuals suspects ... just makes it all the more painful :(

Russia making the final four and Dzyuba being the top scorer.

And Putin coming to the Maracanã and trying to dance 'samba' with the players on the pitch. :D

- 2 players get carried away with themselves after a goal celebration and give each other a blow-job.

- After a controversial hand ball goal the conceding team refuse to play on and do a dirty protest.

- After a booking the players crowd the referee who, in order to protect himself, gets medieval on their arses, breaking 3 legs, 2 arms and decapitating one player.

- A game is abandoned because of a mutant giant ant attack.

- The final is a tremendously exciting and thrilling affair with lots of goals and attacking football.

Webb to ref the final
England win the world cup

It will be more outrageous if both those two predictions happen this year.

actually I take back the Iran one, just because they got Carlos Quieroz I don't think that will mean much at all realistically.

Colombia to go deep. I don't know who their QF matchup is (is it Brazil?), but if they win their group I think they can make the semis.

Diego Costa to flop.

Belgium to struggle - possibly failing in their group.

Yes. if both Brazil and Colombia win their groups and also win in Round of 16, they will meet in quarter-finals.

Colombia will have to play against someone from England's group in Round of 16 though, so chances are they won't even reach the quarter-finals.

I think Colombia have a good chance of beating whoever finishes second in that group. They have a strong team, and importantly the conditions are good for them.

England to reach the semi finals.

England to win a penalty shootout.

Brazil to not get past the semi finals.

Australia don't score a single goal and finish bottom of their group.

Greece to concede the fewest/joint fewest goals in their group but don't get out of the group.

France to revolt again and fail to reach the KO stages.

Argentina to score at least 10 goals against Iran.

Messi to score two hat tricks in the group stage.

Portugal to finish their group on four points but qualify in 2nd place.

WC final to go to penalties after finishing 0-0.

A European team will finally win the WC on South American soil (perhaps not that ridiculous considering Germany and Spain's existences)

Colombia will get further than any other South American side (not the most ridiculous notion either, I suppose)

A midfielder to outscore everyone else at the tournament a la Muller 2010.

Wayne Rooney to not score a single goal.

England to finish third in the groups.

Luis Suarez will do something very stupid and miss out on a massive moment for his team (similar to the Ghana/Uruguay fiasco).

The United States will make it into the semi-finals.

No African teams past the Last 16 (maybe not that ridiculous because I think only really the Ivory Coast stand a realistic chance of doing this).

Bosnia and Hercegovina to make it to the last 8 and Edin Dzeko to be the highest scoring striker of the tournament.

---

I only believe a few of these will actually happen, mind.

Brazil to win the World Cup.

Both an African and Asian side to reach the quarter finals.

England to beat one of Uruguay or Italy but fail to beat Costa Rica and be knocked out.

Lampard to retire after the World Cup. (Both club and internationally)

Dutch to not make it out of their group.

Rooney to actually perform well at a major tournament.

USA to qualify from their group.

Suarez to cry on the pitch again when Uruguay are knocked out.

Gerrard to make a mistake, leading to the opposition scoring the winner.

ITV to sack Roy Keane halfway through the tournament for punching Adrian Chiles.

I reckon a couple are more realistic than others.

England vs Argentina at some point, Argentina to claim that winner gets control of Falklands.

  • Netherlands to be really, really bad. Really.
  • Not outrageous, but I think a hitherto clean-cut player will be involved in a controversial incident; punching, spitting, horrific tackle etc
  • Only one European team in the semi-finals
  • Golden Boot winner not to play in Spain, Germany or *sniggers* England

This one's easy to resolve, by simply pointing out to the Argentinians that the Falklands don't belong to England, but to Britain.
