He positioned Mings to block their keeper.

Ain’t it just. He’s quite something sometimes is our Emi. I don’t think I’ve ever know a player like him.

Just a shame he didn't run to the cockneys after it and do this again

It was a great goal by Digne, although I'm not sure how much coaching had to do with it. I mean, even I'd tell him to try to bend it round the wall and into the goal.

I doubt Martinez just decided on the spur of the moment to do what he did.

He's done it before, only the ensuing free kicks have been shit.

How's his surname pronounced? This last 24 hours alone I have heard Din-yay, Din and Deen.

Closer to Deen, I believe.  However, I'm sure Mr Bad English can educate us.

Deen-ye, I think. BE can confirm. But most commentators bastardise it as much as Maar-tinez when it's Mar-teeen-eth.

Yes, eamonn is closest. https://www.wordreference.com/fren/digne

You should hear people on French TV pronoucing English names though.

Mar-teen-ez, surely? They don't pronounce "ez" as "eth" in Argentina, I don't think?
