  1. A player puts a shot into row Z. Commentator says "he's better than that". Clearly he isn't.
  2. FA Cup 2017-18

    I'd like the Yeovil fans to sing "is that all you take away?"
  3. "Front foot" and "back foot". Notwithstanding that humans' feet are at the sides, the phrases are used ad nauseum. There are other words. "Worldy". Irritating, just irritating. "Their tails are up". Makes me think a rude thought, or what happens when a horse raises its tail. "It's a good time to score". When isn't it?
  4. 54th minute applause for a fellow Fox

    While having due respect for the family and friends of any City fan who passes away, I think it is disproportionate and somewhat presumptuous to ask and expect 30,000 people, 99.9% of whom probably had no connection to that person when they were alive, to applaud a stranger. There seems to be more and more of these requests, which devalue the whole idea. It simply isn't reasonable. For me, the bereavement process is for those who knew the person and have genuine grief. An organised remembrance day is a far more realistic and proportionate way to pay respect to those who have passed away during the year, also it would be inclusive for those who died during the close season.

    How many fouls does Dembele have to commit before being booked?
  6. VAR Issues

    Fair enough, it felt longer. They need to cut that time down otherwise five or six minutes of stoppage time will become the norm if there are several VAR consultations.
  7. VAR Issues

    Moss didn't seem to add anything like enough time for the stoppages. The delay before awarding the goal must have been around 2 minutes on its own.

    How many fouls do Lingard and Martial have to commit before being booked?
  9. Chelsea (A) :: Match Thread

    How did they get away with moving the ball for thathe free kick? And the foul on Willian
  10. Chelsea (A) :: Match Thread

    The ref's far less keen to card their players than ours. The inconsistency gives them a significant advantage. It's so frustrating.
  11. 'Plaudits for our atmosphere' ?! Not any more

    Yes. I can't take him seriously since the weave though.
  12. 'Plaudits for our atmosphere' ?! Not any more

    I miss Paolo Di Canio.
  13. H&M sh*t storm

    I hope you mean pored over. I used to pour over the Kays catalogue lingerie section in my adolescence.
  14. Football commentators and human anatomy

    But not a tail that goes up, as the commentators often say.
  15. Probably during every televised match you will hear the commentators use the terms 'front foot' and 'back foot'. Often commentators will refer to players having their 'tails up'. Now, I'm no biologist, but I'm fairly sure humans have left and right feet, not front and back ones, and I don't know where the tail is supposed to be. My dog has a tail, but the only time it goes up is when she's having a poo.
