I found this really funny, not surprising since it came from although this time they meant to be funny. :D

I'll just post some of the better ones but I encourage to to go read the article, it's well worth a chuckle. Special: Top 30 Most Annoying English Football Phrases -

13) He certainly knows where the goal is

I'm sure that most people in the world, even without getting paid ludicrous amounts of money, wouldn't find it too hard to see two stationary objects always in the same place at the end of each pitch.

9) Newcastle supporters deserve better

The same supporters who cheered when Kevin Keegan returned from 50 years out of the game.

17) Ashley Young is as good as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo

Andy Gray of SKY Sports. This was perhaps only said the once, but it is too good to leave out.

22) Czechoslovakia are a dangerous team

David Pleat is surely old enough to know that the country split into two in 1993.

4) The Makelele position

NO! Claude Makelele (pictured) was not the first player in 120 years of football to play in the holding midfield role, so stop making out like he was.
True, there have been plenty of holding midfielders, but to be fair Makelele did create that very specific way of playing as a defensive midfielder that wasn't really used much before him.

19) If he'd done that [tackle] on the street, he'd be arrested

Yes, generally if someone runs at full pelt down the High Street before going in two-footed on an old woman they're going to do time.

Lmao, what an image that is!!! :laugh: Can you imagine if someone actually did that?!
