Ban one word

100% stealing this from Arseblog Patreon content.

If you could ban one word from the world of football what would it be?

I’d go with overrated. I think it gets completely misused basically every time it’s said.

What “football” word drives you nuts?

What have they just done on BBC2?

“Ace” but that’s all sports.

It’s just all shitty tabloid lingo tbh.

Scored twice at the end of the game of the Copa Libert…you know the CL equivalent of South America

Think Man U in 1999 (only better)

“I”
“don’t”
“like”
“seeing”
“a”
“manager”
“lose”
“his”
“job”

Cos I’m an idiot who believes no other football fan deserves happiness.
