i saw ron dennis in the petrol station filling his bentley

****.

He sounds like a right T*** but you can't deny what he has achieved at FC twente.

Maybe he was always putting on an englis accent in the past.

he does the interviews for the dutch media, that's how they like the english spoken

He still sounds like a t***...Don't they find it patronising?! He wouldn't speak in an Chinese accent if he trained the Chinese team?!! Then again...

i take it youve never travelled to se asia, china or anywhere where they dont speak english...you have to speak with basic english and you have to speak slow.........its not patronising in the slightest they dont understand english nevermind local accents etc

you fail

He sounds more yorkshire then dutch i think...

In the interview he just spoke slow and used improper diction. It wasn't the Dutch accent incident II. Just speaking in a manner in which he is understood more clearer [sic].

I guess the OP has never travelled anywhere. Its very common for people to develop a local twang after living somewhere else for a long period.

LMAO that OP thinks he's putting on the accent on purpose

Very true I lived in Southern Ireland when I was a little kid and when I first went out there they laughed at some of my words and how I pronounced words...then a year later when I returned to England I was saying things they didn't even know over here.
Obviously I was but a kid and thus more influenced then I would be today, but it happens...and that was only overseas, not even abroad.

True! I've never lived that far up north, and for some reason (as you must find) you dont get money down south, or even in and around London.

Good luck to him (McLaren), he did well after taking a shedload of stick over here.

The FC Twente fans wouldn't give a toss if he spoke with a Chinese accent after giving them their first ever title

This .. he clearly WAS putting it on. I'm from the South, have lived in Newcastle for 7 years and have a Geordie girlfriend. I don't speak Geordie :-p

This. I don't think anyone takes up the local twang in such a short period...Over a decade maybe but a few weeks?!?! (Watch the first English interview after he took over Twente). Like I said, you can't deny what he has achieved with Twente is amazing and he's going to go down in history over there.

P.S. I have officially been UNFAILED...

lol a decade .....ask anyone whos been to thailand, they are speaking "tinglish" within a day:thumbsup:

Failed again

Ive done it before when going to Ireland on holiday have started saying certain words that I wouldn't normally say i.e yeah thats sound, instead of yeah thats ok. I could easily see myself adopting a twang after a few weeks or months.

I think he just sounds a bit of a dick to us cos we are used to the English accent but over there he would feel out of place if he didnt put on some kind of accent.

LOL - hardly the same. You probably have a geordie twang. I used to get a brummie one after a weekend up north.

you still fail in style :roll:

Lets be fair .. its more than a twang. Accent + grammar ... sorry but he sounds like a nob end & it is clearly put on. Or he was just stoned ;-)
