    God the tension nearly killed me!

    As much as I'd like to claim this result is all due to our fantastic defence (which did do remarkably well under such pressure - Paston was on fire! ) the Italians lacked any real finishing power. There just wasn't much imagination to their attack. And of course they cheated as much as possible. :rolli: I wish Fallon would keep his friggin elbows down so the Italian backs couldn't desperately throw themselves upon them at every opportunity. I have no illusions though, we weren't that great on attack but definitely improved on the last game. Watch out Paraguay! :workout:

    What a bizarre world cup. All the big guns have proven rather inept. No team has totally dominated or played convincingly on a consistant basis. What's to blame? The ball? The altitude? Player arrogance? The vuvuzelas?

    Italy vs NZ. It was a fun game to watch, I didn't expect it. The drunk kiwis with their tshirts off, swinging them the air being my own favourite highlight.

    N Korea had one bad half. They may well still shock Ivory Coast though. We'll have to see hwo their confidence holds up.

    There were slightly more Italian immigrants to Argentina than Spanish. Phonetically, the most similair accent in the world to the Buenos Aires accent is the Napoli one, not any other Spanish speaking accent.

    Argentinians: Italians that speak Spanish, live in South America and want to be English. (Except at football.)

    I believe Spanish immigration was slightly higher than Italian. That said, the Argentines have a national immigration day to celebrate their diversity, which includes many pockets of Germans, Welsh and Jews, among others.

    however, the fact that they speak Spanish with an Italian slant (not the other way around) should be the biggest clue.
