Oberhausen octopus odds-on outcome...

Update 4: World Cup final predicted: Spain vs.The Netherlands.

Update 3: Spain vs. Germany octopus update HERE.

Update 2: more recent Germany vs. Argentina oracle octopus update: HERE

Bad news for England football fans...or is it? Paul (haha), an octopus at Oberhausen Sea Life Aquarium has predicted a win for Germany in tomorrow's World Cup match: that might sound silly but "psychic" pulpo Paul is now a national celebrity and has a reasonable record: three out of three so far this world cup and four of the six games at the 2008 Euro Championship. That to me highlights one thing: he's due for a wrong prediction and, as he was born in the UK, no doubt he's making sure he keeps his owners happy whilst really hoping for an England win.

P.S. Anyone betting on the games so far would be squids!

Update: England were well and truly stuffed.

I've been called an octopus by the 'ladies' in the past ha ha.

I saw him on TV last night and Colin Murray (BBC) threatened to eat him after the competition.
