    I'll cheer for Netherlands, but actually won't mind a Spanish victory. It's just that they already won the Euro, time for someone else to celebrate.

    This is my dream final, so I'll really just be rooting for a good game and individual players.

    netherlands, closest neighbours that qualified without cheating and i like van persie (i'm an arsenal fan) like fabregas more but spanish coach doesnt seem to, and he probably won't start

    Netherlands. They have cooler sounding surnames.

    I mean, come on, Ruud van Nistelroy is the most badass name ever, seriously.

    Huntelaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar! Sounds like something I would scream before disembowling someone.

    So yeah, go Netherlands.

    Mom was born in Nederland, so I count as half dutch, thus my support.

    You gotta believe!

    Hup Holland Hup!

    Netherlands, I know both would be a first time cup winner and that was something I'd have been cool with all along, but they've been undefeated I guess. However, it's not a big deal to me and I could go with Spain if that one guy who kept getting injured (Pique) gets another nick and plays through it, bonus points if it's a Van Brommel foul.

    Edit: Oh, and I do like the Orange theme and of course forgot Spain won the Euro, those are also good reasons guys :thumbsup:

    God, Paul the Octopus has predicted a Spain victory. Well, it failed its prediction for the last Euro final, so let's hope it got this wrong again.

    Neither, as the refereeing has been crappy enough for the whole Cup to be a sham(e).
    I'll watch it anyway as it promises to be a good game, but the distortions by refs (Fifty was right, we should call the game refball) have just pissed me off too much.
    I lean a bit towards the Netherlands, but not much.

    I'd been pretty big on the Dutch until my father-in-law noted that a Dutch win in South Africa seemed rather cruel.

    Netherland.
    Just because of the totally arbitrary preference I have for Northern Europe against Southern Europe.
