When footballers answer questions with “yeah/no”
Which one is it dipshit
Lots of people write manger on here instead of manager!
Can't even blame predictive text unless they have a love for Christmas carols and the baby Jesus away in a manger.
Describing 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
The referee says nothing doing.
“He deserves at least 3 years”.
You've just said it, they can just say someone delivers in High Pressure moments rather than that 'Clutch' thing.
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.
That is how it's pronounced in Japan. Their language doesn't have a 'si' sound. I rarely correct them.
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.
Surely it's Arsehole Wanker?
Anglophones referring to portuguese/brazilian/spanish players who go by their full names using the middle name as if it's their family name
Learn how other countries' naming conventions work!
For a clear penalty -“we gave away a soft penalty”
This was used a lot in De Gea's first season in England
Commentators after replay /VAR - “ he was only just offside”
Redcafe - So you think you know something the scouts/CEO/manager don't?
You hear it in football interviews and Formula 1, the interviewer will say "and finally from me"
When football pundits run through players they think are good and put an s on the end like there's multiple of them. The Martials the Gerrards, the Fowlers, the Rooneys etc.
Lad just scored a hat trick , 'The most important thing is we got three points'.
We just got stuffed, 'We need to work harder'.
'Game of football'
'Two keepers wouldn't have saved that'
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.
I hate it. How about just say Team A is putting pressure on Team B with these constant attacks, instead of Team A is asking questions of this Team Bs defence. It’s like dumb people attempting poetic metaphors and failing miserably.
"He hit that too well."
Ole has worn out "This is Man United" "Top top players".
"into the mixer"
When a shot hits the outside of the post or in the middle, "Couldn't have got it any closer". Actually yes they could've hit the inside of the post in many increments, that's closer and even closer the shot coming off the post and bouncing across the goal line.
He's been a great servant to the club.
A servant on £150k per week?
Starting next week, once per day i will make a post containing a random football phrase/term from this thread, and @ the person complaining about said phrase.
Yes it should be Chelsov.
Another annoying one is "2 - 0 is a dangerous lead". It's more of a dangerous deficit surely.
“....and it’s LIVE.”
Tyler actually thinks it is a catchphrase which will immortalise him al la David Coleman’s “OneNil!”
The creepy-voiced feck-length.
He's a late bloomer?
Chelskov - Челсков
„He‘s just not good enough.“
„He‘s not United quality.“
it‘s such a simple answer on a complex matter as to why a player is not performing well. It fits right in with the stereotypes people throw around with some players, whether it‘s positive or negative, no matter if it‘s fitting in a certain situation or not.
What's a fecking neutral? Is that even possible in football?
There's a tit on Talkshite who always, always, refers to Middleborough as "The 'Boro". Stop it, you sound like a twat. It's, literally, the only team he ever reports on.
Any left footed non-English midfielder in the premier league and the commentators are like "He's a great technician" or "He's got a wand of a left foot"
Does anyone have a wand of a right foot ever?
When people suffix every sentence with “football club” and end up saying the phrase 70 times in a conversation.
Someone who doesn't care about either team involved.
Look at some WC/Euro/CL matchups and tell me it isn't.
It's only a deficit to the losing team though. And it's not dangerous to them.
The "football" club. That annoys me for some reason.
Saved by the post.
"Paul Merson said.."
These aren't football phrases but they are absolutely terrible.
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.
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.
Separate names with a comma.
