Not to worry friends, Gomez CAN to some extent replace Batigol. He lacks the experience but I have a feeling the mutual understanding between him and the number 10 is strong.

Its just everything...spelling, but mostly when they actually SAY the names....arrrghh...especially the name Joao..cant even describe it.. Some people can actually get the names right, but they are almost godlike by comparison to most :):)

We really should go back on topic now and stop picking on the poor swedes :D

I'll attempt a quick lesson for the thick headed Brits:
Gomez=wrong:rolleyes:
Gomes= correct:cool:
Don't pronounce it GoMez. You'll be much closer with Goimz.
Baia is pronounced Bye-e-a, not Bye-a.

As for Joao(Where's the squiggly accent on my keyboard!!!! :mad: ), I say just give up and say John. You'll still be correct and avoid hurting my ears.:)
