    Bald players are intelligent footballers but tend not to be good athletes.

    Stoke City will always be seen as a "Kick lumps and hoof the ball" team even though they haven't played like that since Tony Pulis left in 2013.

    Like this one, I always remember their first kit when they got promoted to the Premier League. One of the few times the sponsor enhanced the kit.

    It feels like players born in 1988/89 should be entering their prime right now.

    Instead Bale, Sanchez, Ozil and Muller are basically finished at top level. This honestly seems absurd, they are still young to me.

    That's because they had to work in a factory, smoke and hang out at the local pub between games.

    I feel when spanish people are asked how an irishman who now plays for Sunderland in league two could possibly nutmeg Figo, they answer confused: "John O'Shea"

    Manchester United publish their financial results every second week, and there is a record in it each time, at the very least something about the internet searches.

    As soon as Antonio Conte left Chelsea commentators started pronouncing Kantes name in a way that sounds like Conte.

    Salomon Kalou retired when Chelsea won the CL in 2012.

    The Salomon Kalou playing for Hertha is his long lost twin brother.

    Actually, Sunderland are in League One now and O'Shea does not play for them anymore.

    Currently watching Napoli vs Torino.

    Those Serie A games where the view from the camera shows only empty stands everywhere, but somewhere hidden there is a big crowd making a noise like it's sold out and the most important game ever. Somehow like a laugh track of an unfunny sitcom.

    Argentina have a lot more left-footed players than other countries.

    If you’re left footed, you’re either a left back or a number 10. Those are the two options open to you.

    All Phil Bardsley does is foul players without ever getting sent off, even though the fouls are obvious reds.

    For all footballers in England and Europe as a whole,transfer window starts in August and end in September but for the Ayew brothers, well, they seem to pop of the bench for any midtable club chasing a lead.
    Jesse lingard is a 21year old youngster waiting to fulfill his potential.
    Gerard pique never played for Manchester United.
    Jose Mourinho first season at man United was a success despite the fact that it was a disappointing season glossed with the Europa league.
    Dimaria only started 3 games for man United.
    Arjen robben was born a 30 year old man.

    Any penalty with an unusually long or short run-up will result in a miss.

    Arsenal give up a great chance in the first ten minutes of every game they play at the Emirates against the smaller sides, they then go on to win comfortably.

    Manchester City has won every League Cup since 2011. At least five of them were on penalties.

    I felt this one for a while, until about a year ago, then it just flipped, and now it feels like he wasn't at Chelsea for hardly any time at all, and he's been here forever.

    Maybe because he's just so slow, so when he plays, it feels like forever.

    Every penalty Mario Balotelli has ever scored were taken the same way and goalkeepers somehow still haven't caught onto it.

    Pundits are always refering to players like they were at their best. In the pundits mind the player is as good now, as a 35 year old, like when he was 28. This holds true until the day the retirement day of the player is made public.

    Thanks for that :mad:

    Form goes out the window in derby matches, specifically because local lads are more fired up. In actuality, there were three English players on the pitch in the North London derby yesterday, all of whom played for Spurs and only one of whom was from London. I wouldn't be too surprised if the Merseyside derby today were similarly cosmopolitan.

    Every time I check the PL scores on a Saturday Crystal Palace seem to either be pulling off a major upset or beating a lower table side away from home, and yet they're still barely a handful of points above the relegation zone.
