there are plenty of football sayings, what ones do you not like.
the one that P****S me off is managers, players and pundits who say "id pay to watch him or them"
like they know what a rip off footy is nowadays and wouldnt dream of paying what is paid to watch footy.

another is "to be fair" 99% of the time it dont even fit with whatever there saying, it is just like players and managers need to say as they are footballers.

Steve McClaren, anything this T**T says gets my back up, he talks like he is the only person ever too know about football.

oh, and garth crooks does anyone get what he says.

Done instead of did, eg the boy done well, in the whole of British life only footballers and managers do this as far as I can tell.
Ex-footballers now commentators latching onto words that they think make them look intelligent. Current mot du moment seems to be 'sumptuous', ie sumptuous pass there, the Spanish are playing sumptuous. That's another one, leaving the 'ly' off the end of adjectives. Clearly adverbs are a bit ghey.

When describing a goal , the commentator will say never say he kicked the ball in the net it's always, drilled, slotted , hammered,poked,smashed,leathered,passed,slid,half volleyed ,guided , but never kicked

Commentators and football fans who believe that a team should be, as an example, 3-0 up if they missed three good chances. If the first goal had gone in then none of what followed, including the later chances could have possibly happened in the same way.

Redknapp. This is all Redknapp's fault.

"the boy done fab-luss".

Because it doesn't describe the quality of the action? Fairly self-explanatory really. Saying 'kicked' would make you sound like a moron.

Oooh, those Brazilians, you know, circa 1970, hmm, broke the mould,
didn't they, you know? Theory out the window, free expression of
football. Uncategorisable. Is that a word? It is now! You know, far
cry from the English game, isn't it? Small boys in the park, jumpers
for goalposts, rush goalie, two at the back, three in the middle, four
at the front. One's gone home for his tea. Beans on toast? Possibly.
Don't quote me on that. Marvellous!

People apparently giving more than 100%.

"Yes, he done great, gave 110% today!" As if someone else who gave 100% has been slacking!!
