Benzema went from wonderkid to 29 overnight and has remained 29 for the last 10 years.

This is just absolute perfection. One of the very best ones in the thread.

Miroslav Klose was a part time football player that only played for the NT and was always the top scorer in every tournament he played.

Whenever “False 9” is mentioned, you instantly think of Messi. It’s as if it’s the Messi position. He was the inventor of it.
This is true; Totti played it to decent effect against us in 2007. Didn't help too much in the return leg...

2004 - Shevchenko
2005- Ronaldinho
2006 Cannavaro

I was convinced he'd won 2 in a row!
Yeah same here. 2005 and 2006 I’d have said, but yeah I also remember Cannavaro winning it in 2006 after the World Cup win. Huh.

Ronaldinho deserved it in 2006 IMO; instrumental in CL victory for Barca. Brazil in general were poor at WC 2006

No one would notice if West Ham ceased to exist.

Andy Carroll only ever scores headers (unless he's scoring ridiculous volleys and bicycle kicks) following which the commentator says "and Carroll celebrates his first goals since *insert very long time* "

Every team outside the top 6 in the premier league is Manchester Utd’s bogey team.

Just when you thought 2020 couldn't get any more stranger...

There is a football team called Hashtag United, and they're playing in the FA Cup tomorrow!
