    Default Annoying modern football terms

    May I start with 2
    Game time(aka appearances)
    Assistant referee(aka as linesman)
    I'm sure there are many others which drive us mad.

    „Expected Goals“

    „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.”

    ball carrying - a dull, colourless term that's better suited to rugger and gridiron. Worse, it seems to be killing off the traditional word dribbling.

    I've just thought of my most annoying one.
    Game management-aka cheating and time wasting.

    How can it be called the Champions League when most of the entrants didn't win their domestic league the
    previous season?

    Attacking and defensive midfielders. What was wrong with half backs and inside forwards?

    I fell in love with football as I was later to fall in love with women,. Suddenly, uncritically giving no thought to the pain it could bring. - Nick Hornby
