People who do teams upside down with the goalkeeper at the top, the striker in goal, the left-sided players on the right and the right-sided players on the left.

 

Clear sign of being an absolute psychopath if you do that.

Goalkeepers are always at the top of my imaginary line ups like.

 

Weird sentence.

An oldie but a goodie: e.g "your shelveys and your almirons."

 

Another. "Week in week out". "He's a top top player". I mean why the extra "top"?

 

Cockneys pronouncing football as futbul. "He's a great futbuller!"

The amount of yards gained when taking throw ins. Such as those that go out by the corner flag and the player than takes it level with the 6 yard box.

 

Secondly, when players flop to the floor after being sneezed on when defending and running backwards towards their own goal line.

 

Thirdly, thick as fuck players who lay a finger on the aforementioned players and allow them to flop to the floor.

Short corners. 9/10 seem to end up with possession lost or a crap play back to the keeper.

 

 

Hate them too. Imagine bring your 6 foot plus Centerbacks  up all the way up the other end of the pitch and then knock it around the corner flag and not even put a ball in. Now they gotta run back 80 yards and get into position. 

 

You won't see them taking short corners a goal down in the 90th minute, Complete football arrogance. Got no proof but I feel like most World Cup goals come from set pieces.

That some people seem to condescendingly think that being a PFM automatically means that's a bad thing. It doesn't, it just means that if they're also a shit manager they'll tend to get excused. It's really come around to being used so often now that it just comes across as snootiness.

The technology is there for led’s to be embedded in the pitch to indicate the position of the ball to prevent throw-in or free kick creep. After all, we have the bloody illuminated signage all around the touch line.

Regarding goalkeepers, pundits and commentators saying: “he shouldn’t be getting beaten at the near post like that”, often completely ignoring the positioning of the keeper and the speed/power of the strike.
