West Bromwich Albion both exist and do not exist in a Premier League - Championship paradox. Nobody knows for certain what division they're in until checking the table, and even then, doubt that your eyes are playing tricks on you, remains.

If the commentator talks about how a player will be in trouble with an early yellow card, it will never become a problem later in the game.

The only time players get sent off with two yellows is when they get the first one for something trivial, that you didn't even notice happened.

Also if you see a player give dissent and tell a ref to F*ck off after being booked,

They will almost certainly be given a red for next to nothing soon after

All top players who aren't one club wonders have played for their domestic rivals/archenemies at some point in their career.

No club with claret/blue colors in their kit will ever be successful.

When Sunderland were in the Premier League, they never won a game but managed to stay up every single season even though I never remembered them actually winning one

Every time Maguire actually wins an arial duel in the opponents box, the opponent the referee calls a foul.

When a team is winning comfortably by 4 or more goals, the consolation goal by the opposition is an absolutely unbelievable goal...but they never feature on goal of the month montages

Fletcher’s in the 6-1 sprung to mind instantly

PL have had the same refs for 20 years. I know it's likely false but I can't remember to have ever seen "a new ref".

This is so true, I even remember one in the mid 90s when my boys Wycombe were being spanked 4-0 at some welsh outfit, then our centre mid lashed a 25 yarder in for 1-4!!

This is true.
Instantly reminded of Rooney's freekick against City in 2013/14 and Gray's consolation goal against us vs Leicester at OT.

Patrick Vieira is older than Claude Makelele

Patrick Kluivert is definitely older than Ruud Van Nistelrooy

When a player of a team that is winning is substituted, he will slowly walk off (instead of running off) and be met with a chorus of boos and shouts of "come on!" from the opposing crowd...

...even though every single player in the world does it, obviously including their own

despite being 35 years old, I still perceive the majority of footballers as older than me.

players like Zlatan and Madzukic are a good ten years older than me.

When the clock has gone over the allotted amount of injury time, the ref won't blow the whistle whilst an attacking team has the ball in the final third of the opponent's half. As soon as it goes any further than the penalty box towards their goal he will blow the whistle. Just like on FIFA and Pro Evo.

Whenever a player goes down and the referee plays on, the other team scores whilst the team with a man down complain.

Makes sense due to one less body being able to defend but it seems to always happen and did in the Zagreb-City game

Players in general seem younger now than they were in the early-mid 2000s.

We will always drop points to mid-table teams who have an "animated" manager who goes nuts on the touchline all game.
