    let's kick off the discussion early now we have the results from the group match.

    the schedule will be:

    12pm - China vs. Korea

    5pm - England vs. Indonesia

    congratulation for England to qualify the final for the first time.

    here are my predictions:

    CHN 5-0 KOR

    i am afraid to say i cannot see KOR winning in any of the 5 events. CHN is just too strong

    ENG 2-3 INA

    i see ENG taking MX and WS/WD are 50% each, so they may take one. INA will take MS/MD for sure.

    live score:

    Have the rules been changed? Many are prediciting that China will win 5-0 or 4-1, but don't they stop the semi finals once a team have 3 victoires?

    Right, so it will be 7pm in Mas time for the China vs Korea games.
    Just the right time for me. Finish work and watching it while having dinner.

    And I think i would stay with Ina for the late night game since it is weekend.

    I guess I should put in my prediction as well
    Chn: Korea: 3:0
    Eng: Ind: 3:2 <- I'm prediciting a upset. England seems to be stronger in XD, WS, and WD.

    CHN bt KOR: 3-1 *Park Tae-Sang bts Lin Dan ;)
    *CHN should rest LD & put CJ or BCL instead, LD is in a sorry state currently!

    ENG bt INA: 3-2
    *Taufik sweeps MS
    *Tracey Hallam sweeps WS
    *XD in favor of ENG
    *MD can go either way
    *Brits have slight advantage in WD
    **plus Brits have home crowd support!!!

    I think England has a fair chance of beating Indonesia 3-2 as well. Although Markis Kidho & Hendra Setiawan lost the two previous meetings against the English pairing of Anthony Clark & Robert Blair, I somehow feels that the English pair sometimes chokes when playing a strong MD pair. Someone (I think madbad) had suggested that Candra Wijaya & Alvent Yulianto might be better against the English pair and I strongly agree with that opinion. So Indonesia must win the MS & MD to have a fighting chance.

    For England, they must win WS & WD which is do-able since Indonesia's weakness is in the women's camp.

    It will ultimately boil down to the mixed game and I think England will field in Nathan Robertson & Gail Emms for that category. I wonder which mixed pair Indonesia will go with, Nova Widianto & Lilyana Natsir or Flandy (is it Flandy or Flandi?) Limpele & Vita Marissa.

    What do you guys think would be the best pair against Robertson & Emms?

    will they play all 5 matches if the tie is already dead?
    the matches won't matter anymore, not like in the early rounds.

    in either case, i think it'd be hard to see KOR taking any of the matches.
    for the INA-ENG game, i think INA will take it 3-1.

    I have a feeling that LYB will save LD for the final. Expect CJ or BCL to get a start. Possibly XXF too.

    ENG-INA

    MS goes to INA. the rest are quite close.
    Blair/Clark is very good when playing in Europe.
    WD, I think INA WD beat ENG WD a few times before
    WS, England has slight edge but possible upset.
    MX, the unpredictable one.

    So it could be 3-1 or 3-2 to ENG, posibly 3-0,3-1 or 3-2 to INA

    ENG would be riding on a good spirit having beaten the odds against Malaysia so ENG could win it. INA is always stronger in a team than individuals competition.
