half time

Sorry to say Holland doesn't deserve to win. Deliberate fouling strategy, and Robben diving. Effective though.

But the big disappointment is the great Martin Tyler dropping out of the commentator job here in NSC. I hope he's not sick. He's no longer a well man. In recent years you can hear him wheezing.

So NSC TV passed the mike to a double act of locals, who kept up a stream of chatter and reminiscences. I had to turn off the sound and switch over to radio, where thankfully they're forced to address the action. However, the radio is a full second ahead of the TV. So instead of seeing the action then getting an audio explanation, you first hear an event then look to the picture to illustrate it. And at moments of drama, the tone of voice gives away the outcome before you see it.

The second half's about to start. If I was a Spanish player, I'd be scared of getting a boot in the face. Time for the ref to use the red card.


  1. Albert? What a big girl you are! The Spangos have given us nothing but the Inquisition and women with hairy lips. Come on the Splifferoos!! Hotboy

  2. Aye, the horrible Penelope Cruz with her revolting moustache. You'd kick her out if bed wouldn't you?
