Wicked ‘n Wise 7 Yr Old’s

 Almudena del Pozo

Never say something clever in front of a 7 yr old, they can get you in to all sorts of bother!! LOL YAYE Mikaylah (grand-daughter).

I was watching TVE (la mañana de la 1) and there was a female reporter (Almudena del Pozo) on the screen to which I commented (as you do – well I do seein’ as I’m a clever dick :P) ‘look that’s grandads girlfriend’, to which Mikaylah who sitting on my lap, quickly replied & in a dead pan serious face I might add, ‘Does Abuela know you’re cheating on her?’ Gotta give the kid 10 points for crackin three adults and ‘arf a dozen kids up.


Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting!!

They may as well have been, well atleast the dutch football team – Dutch Kung Fu Champion image copyright ESPNtalk about rough house tactics. As far as games go, it wasn’t too bad but then again it wasn’t too good either.
It was all too much bash, barge and dive for me. Spain’s fluid game was regularly interrupted by off handed tactics from the dutch and their game was put off by too much of the ‘hit the ground and squirm’ that goes on in todays game of football – thankfully Ronaldo and Portugal weren’t playing, the bloody game would still be going now!!!

All in all though, the better team won, SPAIN!! and it’s proved once and for all that Euro 2008 wasn’t a one off.

Now let’s hope that Wales can make it in to Brazil 2014, though with TosserShack at the helm Wales has got no hope. Today though is Spanish football’s day – viva la Furia Rojas.

Spain - World Cup Champions 2010


Well I got them right :)

Spain over olympic diver Ronaldo and his motley crew, followed up by a rather lack-lustre win over Paraguay who I might add can go home with their heads held high, a damn sight higher than brazil after the Netherlands beat ’em brooohahaha.
I was pretty sure that Germany was going to beat the argies but not by 4 goals, geez what are the Germans trying to achieve, the record for most goals scored in a tournament 🙂

The “back hand from God” goes to uruGAY though, the tool who handled the ball and stopped the Ghana goal got sent off which means nothing IMHO – what should happen in instances like that is the goal should stand plus the player should be sent off. There is too much in the way of diving and professional fouls in the games today, it’s time FIFA and the football leagues look at a video ref. What’s worse. Adding a minute of extra time because a diver rolls around the pitch in mock agony, or 20 seconds while the video ref views the tape, makes the decision and the diver gets booked for being a plank???

Anyhoo La Furia Roja play the Germans next. This will be their toughest match yet and I just get the feeling it’s gunna go to penalties – another thing I hate about todays game. Bring back the golden goal!!!! Oh n the Netherlands have uruGAY – so the orange army will be first in to the WC finals!!



Today it’s nice and cool with a little drizzle that suits me right down to the ground – I am so over this stinking hot weather.

¿Me puede dar dinero para que yo pueda vivir en Gijón, por favor? 🙂 en serio. . . .
Esa es mi sueño!
