Football Room 101

If there was a footballing room 101 what would you put in never to be seen in the game again?

I'd put that lame jumping thing footballers do when they lift trophies.


What is it for? Does anyone else do this random lame thing in their actual lives when something good happens?

Oh Jebus, where to begin.

The EFL Trophy, the Community Shield, all other equally pointless pots; big clubs rotating children into their sides for the cups; Sky and everything it's brought to the game; the European Championships and any other competition that allows a team to finish in the bottom half of its group stage and still win; tickets costing over £20; leagues with more than 20 teams.

Pretty much all punditry. Every time I hear an ex-player open his mouth I think I should do something more worthwile with my time than football. I used to think it was a competence issue but I'm beginning to think it is rooted deeper than that - that football can't be verbalised but only experienced and that of which we cannot speak we must consign to silence.

It is a flaw in my argument that this is my 6525th post on a website called TalkingBalls, however.

Racists, homophobes, knuckle draggers, those who think that naked violence should be seen as banter, drunks who can't behave themselves, people who can't manage to stay in their place for 45 minutes at a time.
Has anybody said ticket touts?
People who think football was invented in 1992.

The double punishment of a red card and a penalty kick when the keeper commits a foul. Unless it's obviously violent play of course.
