Personally, I reckon it'll be Holland.

With the scandal in Serie A and their world class players ageing, I have a feeling Italy could well shit out of the groups this time around.

Argies or Holland will shit out in the group stages. I fancy Serbia & Montenegro to go through, and Ivory Coast will also make it difficult for the other teans in that group.

Italy or France for me. Italy, although talented have an ageing squad and ditto for France. France are relying too much on Zidane who, despite being one of the best players of all time, is well past his best.

I'm going with Holland, but I would love Germany (or Brazil) to depart in the group stages.

Is Klinsmann watching the World Cup on his telly in California and coaching by email, or has he actually turned up?

Never under-estimate the Germans.

I reckon Germany will do well again this time due to it being on home soil. The worse thing we could do is draw them in the second round.

If it was being played anywhere else I reckon Germany would be jenk.....but with it being on home soil I can see them getting to at least the quarter finals. Germany vs Poland will be a good match though.

Looking at upsets, I reckon one will come from Holland and Argentina. The Argies have dropped a lot of their experienced players, and I've got a feeling this could be a learning curve for them. Holland look good but aren't so smart at the back.

A lot of people are saying Italy will do badly because of this match-fixing scandal....I reckon it will make them stronger.

For once the Dutch aren't bickering, and nobody is really tipping them, I think they'll do well.

Italy will fuck up big time.

I would just love it (Keegen style) if the Argies don't make it through to the second round.

So would I, and I can see either them or the Dutch going out in the group stages.

About Us

Hull City fanzine Amber Nectar began life as a hardcopy publication back in 1998, the work of Tigers supporters Les Motherby and Andy Dalton.

The pair decided to create a fanzine after the end of Tiger Rag (1994-97) and its predecessors Hull, Hell and Happiness (1988-92), On Cloud Seven (1990-92), From Hull To Eternity (1990-92), Last Train To Boothferry Halt (1993) and Look Back In Amber (1992-94).
