..nos dieron un baño.

Desgraciadamente debo abrir este hilo porque ayer muy a pesar mío nos dio el Barca un baño, es decir, nos metió nada menos a 6 (seis!!!!!) goles en el partido del año. blank stare
En fin..... tongue rolleye

Dar un baño, significa, que nos dieron fuerte, nos han superado en todo..

I translated that as a friend told me :

They laced us big time!

He is a football fan and uses the expression frequently. Do you know the expression laced? It might be just slang, football slang. Any other suggestions for the Spanish "dar un baño"'

<---|---|---|---| You can see I've been thinking about it!

Here are a few more all in the same theme:

  • We kicked the stuffing out of them grin

  • We kicked the crap out of them LOL

  • We kicked their butts red face

I think you can see which part of the anatomy this is headed for. The crudest way of expressing it is:

  • We kicked the s''t out of them zipper (not for use by children!)

you certainly got style Moe...I will remember some of them for sure! smile

They wiped the floor with us, very colloquial.

Heinse, Gago and Higuaín are argentines too anyway)

is very common in the financial world, meaning that the speaker lost a lot of money on an investment.

We really took a bath in that game.

I really took a bath on those stocks.

How interesting Kurt! surprised

WE on the other hand don't normally use this except for sports.

  • They had their pants whipped off them

I love this one! LOL

We also have vulgar expressions in Spanish to express the same idea, but they are not reproducable, jeje tongue laugh

También decimos:

Nos dieron un buen repaso.

Heidi:

Do you know what door this thread opens? LOL
Look out for the fallout! LOL

Consider,
- They stank
- They were trounced
- They went down the toilet
- They were underwhelming
- They had their pants whipped off them

and etc. and on, and more.

I'm afraid you asked for it. Hope you can stand up to it. LOL

Another way to say it would be: They gave us a beating/thrashing.

We also have a saying: I/we really took a bath on/in . It isn't used so much in the context of sports, but is very common in the financial world, meaning that the speaker lost a lot of money on an investment.

They slaughtered/murdered/thrashed us big time. I have never heard "laced us" but this may be used in other regions. Interesting fact that years ago footballs used to have a "lace" in them.
