Some thoughtful football commentary

… from Ángel González: “¡QUE BARBARO, CRISTINANO SE DESATA! TREMENDO DISPARO A LA ESCUADRA QUE HIZO TEMBLAR EL LARGUERO. POTENCIA Y EFECTO. ESTÁ TENIENDO MÁS MALA SUERTE CARA EL GOL QUE PASCUAL DUARTE EN UNA TOMBOLA DE FERIA.” Cela made a good living from the proverbial, so I hope he’s not turning in his grave and regretting not having done as he would have been done by.
