Greetings Kankas. Away from World Cup Footie and all the depression of the Croatia and Aussie exits, and back to basics again.

Hibbie Kanka in Edinburgh is still recovering from our night out in Edinburgh last week, so it is down to me to update you with news on the prestigious Inter Toto Cup.

Hibernian will be playing the 1st Leg of their 2nd round match this Sunday afternoon against, and wait for this for a name.......... DINABURG DAUGAVPILS of Latvia. Perhaps Miss Zagreb Kankie can give us the pronunciation ??!!

The 2nd Leg will be played in Latvia the following weekend. So, if (I'm not going to chance my luck and say....when !!!) Hibernian beat them over the 2 legs, then they will be playing the winners of the Shelbourne (Ireland) and Odense (Denmark) match in the 3rd Round.

The winners of the 3rd Round match will then proceed into the UEFA Cup. Clear ???


All the best from Eski Kanka Jim


  1. Exactly how Zagreb Kanka can help us out with the pronunciation of a Latvian team name I have no idea.

    For me that is easy to say. Really easy. But for you that is probably difficult? Hu?

    It is like names for instance Hrvoje or Željko or something like that. That is hard for you, right? Or the ever lasting puzzle for my
    American friends, words like PRST, VRT and stuff like that.

    There is a lot of words that my friends here are braking their tounge and they still can't repeat after me.
    For instance, Neznabošcima (I would love to heard how do you pronouncing something like that).
    LOL Every time when I heard someone to try to speak in Slavic language,.., for me that is so hilarious!!! It is to die for! :-)

    I think that Russian, Croatian, Bosnian, Slovenian, Serbian, Makedonian, Montenegrian,..., are very hard for native English speaking people.

    LOL LOL :-) :-)

    In the US, they always asked me, how do you say this in your language, how you are saying that,.., and when they were trying to repeat after me,.., Ohh my God :-) ,.., I wanted to die from laugh! That was unbelievable! :-)

    Hugs from Zagreb Kankie

  4. Perhaps Oz Kanka was right (for a change) and perhaps I should have directed my question to Finlandia Kanka Marcus ??!!

    However, thanks for your phonetics lesson Miss Multilingual Zagreb Kankie. Accents is a fun subject !!
