I know we've done this one before in the dark distant past but hearing it again over the weekend just reminded me again how bloody stupid the saying is.

"THEY BOTH WENT FOR THE SAME BALL!!

There is only one frigging ball. Why can't they just say "They both went for the ball"

What other football cliches annoy you or is it just me being paranoid?

Game of two halves.

It's always a game of two halves.

TBH almost all of the commentary, post-match analysis and interviews relating to matches shown on tv irritates me. I try to avoid it wherever possible.

It's not really a general cliche but I wish Alan Hansen would stop using the phrase "indecision is final" on every MotD.

Ah, just remembered one. When someone hits the post and people say "he beat the keeper but couldn't beat the woodwork" or "the woodwork came to their rescue". The posts and bar form the structure of the goal, they are not there to be beaten or to rescue anyone and do not prevent a goal being scored ever.

Calling players "son" starts to grate on me. Especially that whole overused "tickaboo son" yes it was novel the first time he said it probably but after hundreds of times it just gets annoying.

Alan Hansen can barely go 30 seconds without describing something as "senseeetional" or "fantaaaastic"

Also, has anyone noticed the way Lineker's head goes up and down, from right to left, like a cockatiel when he's talking into the camera? Might be something to do with reading the autocue but no one else does it to his extent.

'what a goal that would have been'.

It wasn't a goal so why say it

At the end of the day you have to take the rough with the smooth... some you win , some you lose , but when
push comes to shove its all about stickin it in the onion bag.... and remember... its all about desire.....
if you put the effort in then you get the rewards.... blah blah blah.....
