Football cliches and modern terms that really bug you...

Recommended Posts

I've just mentioned one... 'marquee signing'  in another thread…. that's one that really grates on me.

 

Football is littered with cliché's nowadays, thanks, not least, to tv commentators and pundits....

Some of these must bug you too, which oft heard football related words, clichés  and descriptions get up your nose?

Any use of “snuck in” instead of sneaked.

On the team, instead of in the team.

On the weekend instead of at the weekend.

Americanisms, basically!

There was  contact so  he's entitled to go down.

Game of two halves - in our case, a season of two halves.

He's given the referee a decision to make.

Technology will help referees.

You're missing the point! :)

Visiting fans who post on forums of other clubs who feel the need to add 'in peace' to their opening salvo.

At no point did I think we would ever get something like, 'Villa fan in devious attempt to commit genocide' - so, take your 'in peace' message and shove it up your hoop, make your point and then await the reply.

The hilarious ‘ Is this a library ? ‘ song .

Most who sing it wouldn’t bloody recognise a library if it had 3 mètre high flashing neon sign saying ‘ this is a library ‘ at the entrance.

Culture and football supporters.

Although it will be strangely apt when Wally pulls the plug on the Fewers.

Funding cuts are seeing libraries closing all over the place.

“International standard” and “at this level” when referring to an international match.

Similarly, implying a player is better because he’s an international. E.g. “Why was Baker playing when had an international defender on the bench” when talking about Magnússon.

A plumber from San Marino can call himself an international. It’s not the highest standard of the game. Whether a player is an international or not says very little about their quality and a lot more about the country they’re from.

'Brings it under his spell"  "he has a good engine" "back stick" "the park", "'pulls the trigger" "custodian" and other similar bollocks commentators come up with. Not to mention "unlucky" when a highly paid premier league player misses an open goal my granny could scored.

Got two guys behind me who excitedly shout 'do him' when ever a city player has the ball near a opponent. 

Can't stand it...

That's a penalty/free kick, whatever it is, "all day long".

Plus the use of "Redknapp" cockney, which is often used even by pundits and managers who are otherwise quite articulate (Glen Hoddle and a bright young English "Head Coach" plying his trade not a million miles from Ashton Gate!) Example:- "I thought we was poor in the 1st half, but if you was to ask me, I'd say we was deserving of a point"

The media bigging up a match between two sides that don't really have a rivalry by naming it after the motorway or A-Road between the two teams.
