Spain team anthem

November 25th, 2009

So now we have a national hymn for our wonderful Spanish team! You can see the words and the music on the Federation web site www.rfef.es, and there is even an English translation of the explanation about this (the lady who did the translation speaks English at least as goodly fine, don’t you know, as I do!).

Drenthe’s earring

November 24th, 2009

Anybody who wants to make a quick buck should go down to Real Madrid’s training ground in Valdebebas as quickly as possible. Drenthe was training there as usual with the rest of his colleagues, but when he got back to the changing room he noticed that he was missing… one of his diamond earrings! More »

Cartagena

November 23rd, 2009

What a score by Cartagena FC (no relation to the second division side) in the regional third division, group 13! They beat Lumbreras 14-1, with centre forward Alex Marín getting nine goals! Marín (who is a postman in his real life) asked for the match ball after the game, but the referee told him “if you want a football, go and buy one in the Decathlon store! Don’t you know there is an economic crisis on?”

I don’t know – why do you call these games “derby” – that’s just a town in the middle of England, no? It’s all a mystery to me, but then I don’t know much!). More »

Olé, olé, y viva España…

November 17th, 2009

So Spain is officially the best in the World, even ahead of Brazil right now! Did anyone doubt it? Look at how we beat Argentina, the fifth World champions we have won against in recent times! There again, with Maradonna in charge that isn’t so difficult these days: “OK guys, today Messi plays in goal, and whoever gives me the biggest bid plays centre-forward!” More »

Real Madrid, what have you done!?!

November 11th, 2009

Any talk of a triple to match Barça’s feat is already over after they were knocked out of the cup by neighbouring second division B team Alcorcón! My fellow countryman Hristo Stoichkov (as an ex Barcelona player, always happy to see his big enemy humiliated) rubbed smelly salts in to the wounds by saying that, from now on, a 4-0 result will be known as an “Alcorcón”!
