Yeah. For example, they pronounce Weinstein wine-steen, when in German it would be vine-stine. I pronounce it scum-bag, by the way...

Should it even possibly be vine-shtine? 
Isn’t the ST in German pronounced SHT?

You know what, I nearly put the h in there but have a feeling the sh is a regional thing

It's a Steve McLaren thing isn't it?

(Yes, I know that was Dutch, but the languages have some similarities).

I think it’s a syllable thing. If the ST is at the beginning of a word or a syllable within a word, it’s pronounced SHT. 
Same as SP, as in SPIEL, which would be pronounced SHPEEL of course. 
 

So Harvey Weinstein should indeed be Harvey Vine-schtine. Or, as duly corrected, sex fiend! 
 

Interestingly, the other sex case, Epstein, is often called Ep-steen, but should of course be Ep-shtine, although I believe Mr Corbyn was accused of being an anti-Semite for pronouncing it that way.

We just won 2.0 away, top of the league,well 2nd, would have thought there were more pressing issues, that's all. I know its a woman thing, but you know what they are like on here, the debate could go on for ever, and still get it wrong, you have created a monster!

We don't have any issues with pressing. Watch the tape. :laugh:

It's important to get it right, I suspect we'll be hearing a lot about this lad, given the promise shown so far.

And some of the replies to this are a bit snarky - c'mon, folk, it's @Dollymarie who is utterly angelic and flawless

Not sure I’ve been angelic since about the mid 90’s! :rofl2br:

Naj-uh, according to the Hungarian waiter I asked some weeks ago.

There used to be a family with that surname in the Bedminster area and that’s the closest I have seen to the way they pronounced it.

Things are really going to get confusing when Nathan Backer is bake from injury

Can see Backer only being bacup for the baak 3 when he is bake from injury though.

P.S. Imagine if we had Bobby Robson as manager with all these players’ names!

Reporter to Newcastle's Shola Ameobi: "Do you have a nickname?"
Ameobi: "No, not really"
Reporter: "So what does Bobby Robson call you?"
Ameobi: "Carl Cort."

:)
