I have preiviously been accused of being anti-Spanish so I’ll be careful with my words this time. But what is it with Spain and Northern Ireland? The Irish knocked them out on their own turf at World Cup ‘82 and since then the Spanish have struggled against them. During the Euro 2004 qualifiers, a 0-0 draw at Windsor Park effectively handed the group to Greece. Then last night Spain lost 3-2 thanks to a David Healy hat-trick. Fans are now calling for the head of Luis Aragones. In a poll on Marca almost 80% of the c. 145,000 voters said that el sabio de Hortaleza should quit. The question is whether there is anyone better to replace him. Maybe they should appoint Pepu Hernandez, coach of the World Championship winning basketball team. He at least managed to get a talented bunch of individuals to function as a unit.
