When footballers answer questions with “yeah/no”
Which one is it dipshit
Which one is it dipshit
You've just said it, they can just say someone delivers in High Pressure moments rather than that 'Clutch' thing.I’ve seen a lot of people deriding “clutch” in this thread, but it is quite a useful word that is applicable in all sports, unless you lot have another term for a player that more often than not will deliver in a high pressure situation?
It's probably less that, and more making it clear that they're not a supporter of that club - one of those one eyed gimps who can't accept their club isn't the best ever.It really annoys me when someone gives their opinion on a team they don't support and then qualifies it with 'and that is coming from a X supporter' as if that means it carries extra weight.
This was used a lot in De Gea's first season in EnglandDescribing any error prone Premier League goalkeeper as a "great shoot stopper, but......"
Like obviously they are great shoot stoppers, how could a goalie ever get to be a professional if they were crap at making saves
That used to be very common on the UK. I’m going to blame Andy Gray for the start of that stupid overused cliche as he’s the one I remember using it first. Its still around but not as common as it was (started mid 2000s from memory)... it’s usually wheeled out towards the end of the season in league title races.In Sweden there’s a phrase being used quite regularly. It started maybe ten years ago and now every manager, commentator and studio expert use it. I don’t know how common it is in English.
The phrase is “ask questions”. So if a team makes a tactical change or has a certain tactic that team is asking the a other team a question. Now the other team has to “answer the question” or they’ll have a big problem. A player can also “ask the opposition questions”. A very fast winger for example. Can the opposition “answer the question”, in other words do something to prevent him using his speed to create chances.
It’s so silly.
These aren't football phrases but they are absolutely terrible.And when someone is trying to get his or her point across to someone, assured of their own righteousness:
"Give your head a wobble."
And when he or she is the only sane view in a sea of idiocy:
"State of this place."
In our current state it wouldn't surprise me if we somehow got perpetually stuck in November.
Guess it's because some of the football clubs are in reality sport clubs that have teams in several sports. If you say Partizan for example, most here in Serbia would think of their basketball team. Im just guessing though.The "football" club. That annoys me for some reason.
It is most often used in PL games, no one is neutral (it's impossible to be neutral) when it comes to the PL, even if you support one of the lower league sides.Someone who doesn't care about either team involved.
Look at some WC/Euro/CL matchups and tell me it isn't.
