What are some feelings you have about football, that aren't necesarily 100% true, but seem that way

For instance :

Czech Republic national team ceased to exist

It never rains in Camp Nou

Pirlo has been 34 years old since 2008

Villareal doesn't have an away kit

Every Ligue 1 match on television involves PSG playing either Lorient or Evian

Lyon didn't participate in the 2013/14 season

All Portuguese strikers look the same and are average

Every player from Ecuador is fast

Werder Bremen and Wolfsburg are the same team

Ahh.. enough.. Keep going!

Steven Fletcher was already 30 when he first broke through, he's still 30 now.

Every African player is actually 2/3 years older than his official age, I would bet my life on Obafemi Martins being older than 29.

50% of African teams are fighting their FA before the world cup

Chelsea fan.
Goalkeepers always, always have great games against Chelsea.

Despite decades of shite, I am still shocked when England perform badly.

According to FIFA at least. Every shit, random team you've never heard of has a really quick black player up front.

With the exception of Ghana every African teams home kit has some orange, green or red in it.

90% of teams from Russia have Moscow in their name.

Getafe and Levante are the same team, as is every team in France outside Lille, Monaco, PSG, Marseille and Lyon.

Those are brilliant. :lol:

Every time I get a text when Arsenal are losing I'm convinced it means my stream's behind are we're about to score. That feeling lasts a good 5 minutes.

The Eredivisie will always be associated with the colour 'grey'.

Brazil have to come to every tournament with a new crap DM who will never be picked again.

West Ham cease to exist when Andy Carroll isn't fit.

Aaron Lennon actually retired four years ago.

There are no Chelsea fans North of Watford, South of London, or East of Soho.

I've stopped watching Liverpool matches, because they always score within 5 minutes of me putting the game on.

Tottenham didn't win a single game or even score one goal last season, yet still managed to finish 6th.

An average striker will always enjoy at least one incredible game against Manchester United before fading back into nothingness.

Sun never shines in St. James park. 'Cos I've almost always watched teams play on cloudy days there.

And yeah, at least the half of the OP too. :)

Btw, anyone know of a single word to express this feeling?

Borussia always beats Bayern in the begining of the season, but it ends up being a cake walk for Munich

No matter what is the situation, Dzeko will score in the last 5 minutes of the game

Lyon didn't participate in the 2013/14 season

All Portuguese strikers look the same and are average

What the hell? :lol:

Chelsea wouldn't be favourites if they hadn't signed Fabregas. However, even if Fabregas is poor for the whole season, they will win the league this year because he's in the team

Every team in the lower half of the Premier League has an average defender named Taylor and an average midfielder named Davies.

There's always one rubbish striker that has a good year, maybe gets a move (sometimes after they've declined again) and then is shit for the rest of his career.

Grant Holt
Steven Fletcher
Roque Santa Cruz
Benni McCarthy (wasn't all that rubbish at Porto)
Mikael Forssell
Juan Pablo Angel
Benjani
Peter Crouch
Kenwyne Jones
Michael Ricketts
Etc

For the longest time I thought Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen were related for some reason.

There's always that one mediocre player that never gets on the scoresheet score a beauty against us out of nowhere.

With the exception of Ghana every African teams home kit has some orange, green or red in it.
Ghana's main strip is red & they have featured green on their strips in the past. They also always have a bit of dark yellow on it, close to orange but not quite.

Some great ones in the OP. :lol:

Claudio Pizarro and Roque Santa Cruz have never started a match in their careers
