As I have the telly running while lounging on the terrace (he, he, he), I have the pleasure to take occasional looks at the latest Leverkusen game. And I will now officially declare myself a Jose Roberto fanatic (scored again, plays like king) :)
That guy is just great !

Nice old topic. I belive we had this discussion in the old portuguese forum and they came up with it is kind of like "Roy", which in english is short for "Roy". It's kind of a random name.

That's correct. Roy is it's English equivelant. The Spaniards spelled it with a Y however. As in Ruy Lopez, the Spanish monk who created the now overused 'Ruy Lopez' chess opening. Fascinating stuff, I know.

Actually, it is a medieval short form for Rodrigo (Roderick) in a few dictionaries I checked.

So what was marco smoking when he said there was no english equivalent to rui?

all that sex he's having has completely drained his blood from his brain to his penis permanently.
