Do Match commentators actually say these things?

Posted on Updated on

Ladies and Gentlemen, I love Soccer. And its very funny to read the lines below – i found them here

“Barcelona… a club with a stadium that seats 120,000 people. And they’re all here in Newcastle tonight!”

“Ronaldo is always very close to being either onside or offside.”

“We were a little bit outnumbered there, it was two against two.”

“Julian Dicks is everywhere, it’s like they’ve got eleven Dicks on the field.”

“If England are going to win this match, they’re going to have to score a goal.”

“You weigh up the pros and cons and try to put them into chronological order.”

“Robert Lee was able to do some running on his groin for the first time.”

“I never comment on referees and I’m not going to break the habit of a lifetime for that prat.”

“I’m not a believer in luck but I do believe you need it.”

“What will you do when you leave football, Jack… will you stay in football?”

“Unfortunately, we keep kicking ourselves in the foot.”

“Celtic were at one time nine points ahead, but somewhere along the road, their ship went off the rails.”

“I’ve got a gut feeling in my stomach…”

“The new West Stand casts a giant shadow over the entire pitch, even on a sunny day”

“I would not say he [David Ginola] is the best left-winger in the Premiership, but there are none better.”

“Johnson has revelled in the ‘hole’ behind Dwight Yorke…”

“An inch or two either side of the post and that would have been a goal.”

“Both sides have scored a couple of goals, and both sides have conceded a couple of goals.”

“You don’t score 64 goals in 86 games at the highest level without being able to score goals.”

“What’s it like being in Bethlehem, the place where Christmas began? I suppose it’s like seeing Ian Wright at Arsenal…”

“And we all know that in football if you stand still you go backwards…”

“I was saying the other day, how often the most vulnerable area for goalies is between their legs …

“The lad got over-excited when he saw the whites of the goal post’s eyes.”

And there are more…just go to the link at the top of this post. Very Funny indeed!

    this is the only way I’d start to like football: listening out for the silliest quotes 😀
