    There was clearly contact (justifying yet another theatrical dive)

    I must say, after reading through this thread and spending as much time shouting at the screen during matches because players are preventing quick free kicks by obstruction and throwing or kicking the ball away when throw ins and freekicks are awarded against them as enjoying the football, I'm going through a bit of an anti-football moment.

    I nearly always turn the sound down these days, partly to get rid of the ersatz crowd noise and partly to get rid of the inane chatter from the commentators. And much of the football is ticka-tacka nonsense to retain possession with little idea what to do after all the pointless passes. Passing the ball incessantly across the back four then booting it 50 yards upfield seems to me rather silly tactic.

    So I outlaw all modern football terminology and just chat along with myself for the moment.

    I almost always mute commentators apart from Fray.

    I know all the players, I know football well enough to understand what's going on - commentators are just an annoyance to me. It's about time broadcasters joined Amazon where you can just have stadium noise and mute commentators (albiet difficult at this time).

    „Transition“.

    You’ve. Passed. The. Fucking. Football. To. A. Team. Mate.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    Most sentences Jermaine Jenas forms include at least two examples of pundit jargon.

    Super Sunday although to be fair that’s stood the test of time since football was invented in 1993

    Why do Carragher and Liverpool fans call Alexander-Arnold by his first name? Like they’re all mates or something? Really annoys me.

    Have you met the average scouser?

    Names longer than the number of fingers they’ve got, there’s no chance of them being able to spell. Or pronounce, without drowning you in a bucket of phlegm.

    So, Trent it is.

    It annoys me that he’s even allowed to commentate on TV after spitting at that girl, let alone on Liverpool games.

    I have to mute it when he’s on, calling Alexander-Arnold by his first name is a prime example of his matey, biased pro-Liverscum commentary.
