    To take it a step further: since the days of Baggio, none of Italy's better midfielders/strikers players have had much impact on the national team (think Totti, Del Piero, Verratti, DiNatale, etc.) All success has been achieved through defenders and Buffon.

    Every year West Ham are linked with 5-10 CL level strikers, sign none of them. Buy a striker nobody was really interested in or rates like Ashley Fletcher.

    Matio Balotelli is a troubled youngster who just needs the right manager to become a world beater.

    There are about 17 Dembeles playing across Europe, they are the same person.

    Everytime you tune into a game between 2 shit sides, some scores a worldie.

    Any time a free kick specialist takes one, he misses. Everytime its a random player, top corner worldie.

    Wolves/Watford will always win their first 6 fixtures then lose the following 6.

    Wolves and Watford are the same team.

    Liverpool can never win the Premier League.

    Fergie always won with an injury time goal against the run of play. He never ever comfortably won a game 3-0.

    Oligarchs and Gulf states can only buy teams wearing blue.

    Teams wearing blue are evil and all their players are mercenaries.

    Bolton are a premier league team with at least 2 ex-Real legends in their starting XI.

    Aston Villa never got relegated.

    Love this thread.

    There was a much larger gap between the 2010 and 2014 world cups than between the 2014 and 2018 world cups.

    1) Everytime a player is described as "hardworking" and "shows passion", it will be an average English player.

    2) Every time Player A joins Club B, "the football world has gone mad".

    3) When a manager in real-life tries to buy wonderkids from FIFA / FM, the player will turn out to be a terrible transfer decision.

    Fellaini and Messi have helped me overcome any insecurities about not having enough height in football.

    Mata brought back those insecurities.

    Well, he turned 27 during the World Cup so it's not so much a weird feeling as a simple fact.

    Preston ceased to exist after the loan of David Beckham expired.

    Barnsley got massively relegated from the PL in 1998. Seems like it's the last time they were heard of.

    Cagliari and Genoa are the same team.

    Teams wearing blue and white stripes can at most only be relegation candidates in a top division.

    Teams shortening their goal nets are destined for hard times. Teams like Boro, Villa and Newcastle all had much more fun when their goal nets were deeper.

    FC Parma, SSC Napoli and US Palermo are all one team too.

    That team is simultaneously a cl team, on the rise, and recently relegated due to shady dealings.

    Sorry if anyone is offended by that.

    Yes

    Everyone at that club pretends they are trying to sign Maxi Gomez, Andre Gomes, Andrea Belotti and Piatec...

    But we all know they well end up with Salomon Rondon and Daniel Sturridge.

    That's because we all get older. The gap between 1994 world cup and 1998 was forever!

    Yeah, 90, 94, 98 and 02 all seem like they took place in completely different eras from one another, while 06, 10, 14 and 18 might as well have been consecutive years.

    Every time a team is on the receiving end of trouncing (1-5, 1-6 etc), the goal is an absolute pearler.

    The managers and pundits (Lawrenson and the like) that have complained the most about the lack of video technology in football will be the ones that complain the most now that we have it.

    In football, if a handful of players decide to act like morons and ruin the match it is the referee’s fault for “failing to control the game”. In any other sport the players are condemned.

    At least 3 of the best 5 goals in a Premier League season will happen in the same month and often 2 on the same weekend.

    Time wasting is only punishable in the second half.

    Wayne Rooney scored in every game he ever played against Newcastle, Arsenal, Roma and AC Milan.

    Fletcher's goal in the 1-6 v City was fantastic.

    He scored a brilliant volley against Everton in a 3-0 win too, back in 2009 I think

    So did Park and Nani :drool: used to love those games. Our 3-1 against Arsenal back in January was a real blast from the past

    Have a feeling Aubameyang never scores goals against any teams but somehow ends up top scorer.

    Brighton and West Brom are not allowed to play in the premier league at the same time as they are really the same club.

    A West Brom/Brighton player will score a header against United and then fall off the face of the Earth.

    Neymar has never scored a header or a goal line scramble.

    Every year, a new Messi crops up for every nationality and somehow fails to take the world by storm.

    Every cross whipped between the defence and goalkeeper is always exclaimed to be a 'great ball' by the commentators even if there isn't an attacking player any where near it. Extra points for the ball being 6ft+ high and in the 6 yard box even though no one ever scores from them but still it's a 'wicked ball into the box'
