'Thought we controlled it second-half.'

''I can't fault the lads' commitment.'

'I'm a big fan of VAR, but...'

I'm doing commentary for talkSPORT (on the app) at Norwich-Palace on NY Day and will probably use every cliche in the book. Apologies in advance lol

"Hes got to be stronger there" 

 

Applies any time someone loses a contested header resulting in a goal or a keeper gets fouled in mid air. 

 

"Hes got a lovely / wand of a left foot" 

 

No one ever says the equivalent about a right footer

I used that when I was discussing roast potatoes on national radio. The trick is to boil them to the fine point of being ever so slightly fluffy around the edges. I said "its the corridor of uncertainty". 

 

Pretty sure nobody got it
