    Even worse, when the commentator apologises for '...any inappropriate language you may have heard' When you see a defender fall to the ground for the fifteenth time when backing in to the attacker, hearing him shout 'get fucked ref' is quite appropriate

    VAR will be taking a look at that one...

    VAR should fjuck right off.
    Leave the officiating to the referee and his 2 linesmen.
    And who needs a 4th official... not me... they do bugger all.

    Top top

    This is related to every goal/save/shot being great.

    In the past a very good player used to be described as 'top'. Now every player is a top player, so in order to denote excellence we have to add an extra top.

    He's a top top player Jeff.

    What next? He's a top top top player...

    THE TRUTH IS THERE AND WITH IT I GO TO THE END OF THE WORLD .

    It’s actually ... nothing.

    It’s a tactical formation where a side plays three interchanging attacking midfield players, without a designated striker.

    That way, the three men can change positions at will, occupying both flanks and the central positions, with the hope of completely bamboozling opposing defences.

    You have to be an excellently-drilled Team to make it work. Ajax did it, Barcelona did it, Man City did it (you can maybe sense a theme there).

    Don Revie was a false nine or, as it used to be called, a deep-lying centre forward. Still Cloughie sorted him out, so that's all right.

    Your palms are holding her neck and thumbs are at her ears regulating the speed of her head as she swallows and then sucks up your machinery. She is topping up your engine oil for the cross-country coming up. Your RPM is hitting a new high. To wait any longer would be to lose prime time... She picks up a Bugatti's momentum. You want her more at a Volkswagen's steady trot. Squeeze the maximum mileage out of your gallon of gas. But she's eating up the road with all cylinders blazing.
