If your statcounter tells you that you have lots of visitors from Spain, don´t get too excited. It´s only ME! Have phone line will blog.

We are watching the World Cup on Spanish TV with Spanish commentators. They do well - ´Jocole, Jocole, Jocole, Teree, Teree, Teree´ - if it wasn´t for the Spanish bits in between you´d know exactly what was going on.

On Wednesday (24th) we settled down to watch Holland v Argentina. Out came the Dutch team in their all orange outfit and lined up alongside Argentina.

"Kev", I said, "I´m surprised that ALL the Dutch guys are black. Is Van Nistelroy on the bench?" Kev started to pontificate (he´s good at that) about the Dutch colonies and the fact that they appreciate their black players more than we do ..... blah blah blah. Er ... Kev.." Have you noticed that all the Argetine side are white - like very white?" "Oh yes (actually, it was yesh by now) it´s well known as the whitest country in South America."

I don´t know how long it took us to realise that wewere watching Ivory Coast v Serbia and Montenegro. And what a fine match it was?

Anyway, after yesterday´s goal, I´ve forgiven Becks for that disguting party and most other things. Toady we´ll support the Socceroos with Della my contemporary. Let´s hope Our Tim (Tim Cahill) is not substituted by a koppite bastard again or we´ll have to shout for Italy.

It´s not easy for Kev watching Crouch, Rooney and Gerrard. But, after half an hour with his friend San Miguel, he settles for yelling abuse at the ref just like all genuine footie fans.

I'm supporting the Italians. I want them to score lots of goals and kiss and pile on top of each other and take their shirts off. Five mins 'til the match. Gotta go.

We've been on holiday in the Canaries and Majorca in recent years when World Cup or European Championship matches have been on, so have become familiar with the Spanish commentators. This year in Ibiza, for some reason, we only had German commentary in the hotel room and an excitable Spanish commentary on the television at the bar (the bloke seemed to become hysterical every time Ronaldhino got the ball for Brazil). Still preferable to John Motson, however.

mj: Sometimes I worry about you.

pete: I dread to think what Portugal will do to us.
Unless the ref is Portophobe.

Betty: I think your hysterical Spanish bloke is the one we´ve got. He´s more like a radio commentator in that he tells you everything and whoops up the excitement. I love it.

It's not easy watching a midfield of Carrick, Cole and Lampard. And Rio at the back.

Funny there's no Defoe, though.

Geoff: Very odd and no Walcott either - even odder.
