I like that, a lot. At least they're trying, and it provides some harmless amusement. It's great fun over here, when they try to say "Hodgson", or "Selhurst Park".

I thought Californians would be way ahead of us on Spanish pronunciation of names.

I thought it was "Pissjy".

Even over here they are quite amusing and they are OK at English, although they normally put the weight on the wrong syllable.

Danish pronunciations matter.

They aren't the only ones. How many of our lot think we have a winger called "za-Haaaaaarrr!"?

I love how he's basically picked Bruno Fernandes for converting a penalty.

....but doesn't mention that he gave the weeds a penalty that nearly lost them the points

Insular Pratts.

They don't do it for cultural intelligence, they do it because they think it makes them sound knowledgeable in the world of football. It's the same with "Hey-soos", who is, funnily enough "Jesus". So, have the vicars got this wrong too? Are they being "insular prats"? And something else, I'm pretty sure the Spanish refer to our capital "London", as "Londres", so instead of saying "Lhandhan" they say "Hghlon-drezz". Those 400 million little Spain insular prats.

This is exactly how I got my football nickname from mates, originally "Spindle" they added the IO to form Spindinio, in the wake of 90's South Americans and Italians.

That is definitely not how the Spanish pronounce Londres.

It's how the commentary team pronounce it though. Let me have another go.


"Lun-drdrdrdrez". I feel INSULTED.
