    The Final: Spain v Italy

    I just turned the TV on and saw a bunch of aerobic dancers making the the shape of a massive penis — what's going on?

      The Final: Spain v Italy

      Re: the closing ceremonies - did anyone else notice the resemblance between the "whistle" blowing to start the "game" and the final scene of Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex But Were Afraid to Ask?. Seriously disturbing.

        Oh, it was a whistle!

        This is seriously naff.

          Did he? I wasn't aware, thankfully.

            Lineker bats the "Balotelli has never won anything in his career" line straight back at Shearer who intimates that he meant that Balotelli has won nothing in his international career.

            It's clearly evaded him that this is his first tournament.

            They've just showed the Aguero goal that won the Premier League - the more I see that clip the more I realise that Balotelli's pass, when flat on his arse, to perfectly release Aguero is a wonderful piece of skill.

              Why does Buffon always closes his eyes when he sings Fratelli d'Italia?

                Come on guys, the semis were pretty good but we still need a classic Final to redeem this competition.

                  Shearer has embarressed himself time and again on the subject of Balotelli. He's won more by the age of 21 that Shearer has in his entire career.

                      Never mind the trophy, fine performances tonight might nudge you into the undecided slots in my Team of the Tournament!

                      Especially right backs and strikers.

                          He had a good semi but Balotelli has had a pretty mixed tournament it must be said.

                            My tactical genius predo: I think Spain will have plenty of possession.

                              Is this camera angle weird? Too shallow and distant?

                                Not sure what I'm most disappointed about: the fact that Getmany didn't make the final, or that Lawrenson did

                                  Dalliances "He had a good semi" sits very well just after my mention of Buffon's sex face.

                                    No, to capture the TG essence you have to make the prediction after the game has finished.

                                        Or not make it at all and just say I did?

                                          Behold the empty seats!

                                          Just tuned in. I promised myself I wouldn't watch this. I just got back from a 40 km cycle and then spent 20 minutes in the sauna. Watching Spain is probably not the smartest thing to do now if I plan on staying awake.

                                              Spain are dictating the pace and it looks just a little quicker than Italy would like.

                                                I have Danish commentary on now. I don't watch it on Swedish TV anymore because I now know enough Swedish to get annoyed at the commentary. That's usually a good sign you're well established in a country.

                                                    This is as all out attacking as Spain have been all tournament, a pleasant surprise.
