My Spanish mate tells me that valderrama should rhyme with 'hammer', not 'armour'. The double r is more like bringing up phlegm.... Don't think mark roe gets very near on this.

And yarmolenko (for West ham fans) sounds a lot more like Monaco at the end than British commentators would have you believe.

I'm not a commentator but I am guilty, or actually not guilty. Marsters as you would pronounce is the posh way. I didn't realise there were posh people from Shields :LOL:
Nobody would ever call me posh! Everyone I know pronounces it properly. The "massters" pronunciation started with Gary Lineker when he commentator on the U. S. Marsters & other, normally Queen's English, commentators have followed suit. It's an Anericanism. You've spent too much time in the U. S. of A, Lord T

We'll all be speaking American soon, thanks to all the American tv programs on the telly.
We're half way there now (not in my house though)

Ha ha. I would never think of it as an Americanism. Bath or Barth? Masters or Marsters? It is the same to me. You need some more northern in you, you've gone soft :LOL:

There's a lot of these around though, especially with place names:
Barth or Bath?
Shrewsbury or Shrewsbury?
And how many people pronounce the D in Wednesday?
I'm a SH in Shrewsbury by the way.

Mischievous is not pronounced 'mischeevious'.

Even the BBC are now following the American mispronunciation of French words and names, with the emphasis on the wrong syllable - eg café, Macron, debris - I think the French know better ...
