Reasons why you HATE the modern game...

Recommended Posts

I've been given two tickets for Southampton v Crystal Palace this saturday. About ten of my mates who are regulars down there, plus me, are meeting up midday for a few scoops before the game. Then I have to leave them, so we can't carry on with the craic in the ground, and sit in my fucking poxy designated seat with a load of fucking nif nof's from work.

 

Load of old shit.....

 

Next?

'Fans' who've never ever been to a live match pontificating about their team. Also, glory hunting fans who take the piss out of people who support their local side. Goal celebration music, bottle caps being confiscated, women, poncy boots etc.

when commentators say when reviewing a penalty decision "well there is contact" - yes the slightest of brushes not enough to make a 6ft black man fall over and roll a fucking bout

 

that refs do not blow for a foul despite defenders clearly pulling shirts at corners

 

shielding the ball from a players to let it run out - its a fucking foul

 

foreigners who you can tell by looking at them do not give a fuck if the team you love wins, loses or draws - just the money

 

cunts who sign for teams like man city even though they know they wont play just for the money - especially if they are goodish players

 

goal music as danny said - why oh why isn't cheering enough that they have to play - der der der der, der der der der

 

again - I agree with Danny - no place for women at football especially when they scream if there is a chance

 

changing kits every year

 

the cue for a beer at half time - you know it is coming yet you have 1 mouth breather pulling pints

 

people who cannot accept that good players don't always make good managers

in actual fact - I fucking hate EVERYTHING about the modern game

 

The please refrain from moaning about Pearce eh. His legendary status harks back to the good days when it was a mans game watched by men. Why do you give a fuck what our league position is? I don't, leave that to the scarfers & programme collectors on here.

Teams full of wankers who couldn't give a shit, cocking about in front of a stadium of twenty odd thousand who would have given up a nut to pull that shirt on for real.

 

Agents. Parasites.

 

Professional footballers who have been head and shoulders above everyone else throughout their youth days turning into inept imbeciles and have no technical skill whatsoever when they reach the big time.

 

The FA, committee men who just want to play it safe all the time.

 

Pundits who describe divers as "having a right to go down" and not call them a cheating twat.

 

Players and managers who moan about refs missing decisions when they've been part of the con themselves over the years

 

No standing in Britain. Having watched a Bundesliga game with blokes standing up to watch the game with a pint in their hand that got to me.

 

The perpetual pity party around Liverpool and some odd notion that they're owed the league every year.

 

The "legendary" Steven Gerrard.

People who claim they're against modern football but then buy a £600 season ticket to sit in a flat packed stadium with a corporately sponsored name. And then watch 'super Sunday' on Sky.

I am going to echo Danny's comments, but I hate fools who claim to support <insert name of big Premier League team> and will harp on endlessly with their Sky Sports fuelled knowledge, as if they are a Professor of Football. Then when you ask them, "How many times have you been to <insert Premier League club's ground>?" The answer is "never" or "I haven't been to the ground, but I once watched them play away at Fulham when I sat with the home fans". Now I am hardly the greatest Forest supporter in the world (that accolade goes to Big Paul), even if I lived in Nottingham I wouldn't pay £30 every fortnight to watch the shit we get served up, but at least I make the occasional visit and did so even when we were shit in League One (as opposed to being shit in the Championship) and the reason I support Forest is because my dad told me I was a Forest fan - I didn't look at the Premier League table and think "which team defines me as a person".

The dawn of all-seater stadiums was when all the fun went out of it for me. Never been the same since.

I remember reading a book called Football Babylon some years ago and it talked about this. Even though they were only recommended, someone insisted on them. Not long before that a company was formed to provide seating for stadia although there was already firms doing this job quite well. When the decision came to make them all seater, this firm got the lions share of the contracts. Oh, I forgot to mention, many of this big wigs at The FA including Millichip had been appointed to the board of that new firm prior to the decision.

For me it's the over commercialisation of it all. Rupert Murdoch is a **** of the HIGHEST order, I fucking detest the parasite. As soon as money became involved, football turned into one big glitzy advert, moving a million frames a second for the attention deficit generation.

 

I vividly remember waking up one Saturday morning (or possibly afternoon in those days) and turning on my tele to be greeted by a grinning Jermaine Defoe. He was that mundane, my attention was being drawn toward the bling ear studs he had dangling from his ridiculous lobes. As he whittered on, in a monotone voice, about things that were as mentally stimulating as his preferred brand of boots, the weasel looking dullard hit on something that made me take notice. He started talking about the media training that the club makes him undertake, and how he really enjoyed it.

 

It started to look like I was watching the QVC shopping channel, and on screen was a glove puppet diamonique earring that had Jermaine Defoes toothy gob CGI'd onto it. I may as well have been watching fucking Pob.

Beckham took elocution lessons and it's quite obvious that Rooney also has. What a fucking circus it all is nowadays.

The media training worries me about the wit and intelligence of these guys. We get the same old crappy cliches dished out even after their media training. Yet come the World Cup we have our lot in a studio and the likes of Clarence Seedorf come in and piss all over our lot with their insights and observations. Edited by leather

Seedoff, insights???He is fucking terrible. If you think he offers you insight then Football goes way above your head.

 

Things i hate, all this "RESPECT" crap. Im sure Libtards like Danny, Dane b, Art Vanderlay and Tomo love all that stuff.

 

The pricing out the true fans. Mancity use to be working class tough club, now they cant even make a sound in a Big Champions League Match or a Manure Derby.

 

Refereeing standard-In the Premier League its horrible. But why dont they just do interviews and come out why they made a certain decision? They are so protected.

 

British Football fans-Look at the numpties on this very thread. Why England(and prem teams) get torn a new arsehle in the champs league and world cup alike, the morons on here and the vast England average football fan scallies still they play better football than Germany, Argentina or Spain...Dane probably thinks Sterling better than messi etc...

Comedy gold.

 

Sepp Blatter, Sky Sports, diving, Gary Lineker/Alan Shearer/whichever other cock is on Match of the day talking about "contact", wankers to a man. £30 upwards for a ticket, £30 pounds upwards of a ticket to subsidize millionaires with very little talent, calling Match of the Day MOTD, calling Division One the Premier League, boring bastards trotting out cliche after cliche, fans lapping the boring bastards' patter up. You get the general point. It's all shite.

How ridiculously over rated and over paid the so called best players are. Look at Manu last night as an example....ok they were the better side but they would need to beat Cambridge 15 nil for me to hold my hands up and state that you get what you pay for. Even more nauseating when watching England play some tiny principality in a qualifier with a team full of players on 100k plus a week and then struggle to break them down. Fucking obscene.

Oh go and bore someone else fucknuts. I'm up for a bit of debate but your poxy efforts at faux controversy do my fucking swede in. you appear to have been absent for a while. Have you been away working yourself up into this frenzy where you're unable to see that my point was generally about the comparison between how articulate many overseas footballers compared to ours, which speaks volumes in so many ways about the difference in our footballers and overseas ones which, ooh look, looks remarkably like your observation.

 

If I'd known you were coming I'd have tried to make my point in a simpler way, but I can't write in fucking crayons on the forum.

All the bad things stem from there being too much money really - The Premier League is boring and predictable because the teams with the most money are always at the top, the Champions League is boring and predictable because only the teams with loads of money have a chance, finishing in the top four is more important than actually winning things so you keep the money coming in, why develop young players when you can just sign a ready made one from abroad etc.

 

Away from that the thing that I find most annoying is the culture of tolerating cheating and trying to pin the blame on refs. At least half of all penalties are for dives yet nobody ever comes out and says it. At the end of the game the losing manager will really lay into the ref for getting a penalty decision wrong yet won't mention the player who actually did the dive that he fell for.

 

The only manager who's actually come out and called a cheat a cheat is Gary Monk and Mark Hughes virtually had a breakdown about it. Someone actually stepping out of the weird Premier League culture where nobody can actually say what's actually happening must have been the most shocking thing he'd ever seen.

 

Even on MOTD the most anyone, usually Danny Murphy will say is "He went down a bit easy there" or "Uuum not sure about that one" while Shearer, Hansen, Savage etc will accept obvious dives and say stuff like "definite penalty there's contact" Of course the fact the tiny contact is engineered by the 'fouled' player goes unmentioned as does the fact I have more contact when passing strangers in the street and neither of us falls over. Well, there was that old woman that one time but it's very rare....The only one who actually pointed out the blatant cheating was John Hartson and he was forced to apologise a few days later and hasn't been seen since.

 

It's hard to think of anything in football that's better than it was 20+ years ago?

 

Apart from the RESPECT stuff of course, I can't get enough of that. As I was saying to my fellow libtard DaneB just the other day all the RESPECT stuff is brilliant :unsure:

 

It started to look like I was watching the QVC shopping channel, and on screen was a glove puppet diamonique earring that had Jermaine Defoes toothy gob CGI'd onto it. I may as well have been watching fucking Pob.

 

Pob :D I'd not thought of Pob in years, what a weird and strangely sinister programme that was. If we still had the +/- thing I'd plus one your post just for the mention of Pob.

That pisses me off. Dalglish got Liverpool to two cup finals in one season, winning one but was fired. Brenda has won fuck all but finished second (and bottled the title) so is regarded as being more successful. When Wigan were relegated everybody from within the club, and all the pundits, said staying up was more important than winning the cup. Surviving for yet another relegation fight is genuinely regarded as more important than achieving something that will be remembered forever. Fuck off modern day football.

It's insane mate.

 

I heard on the radio the other day that the new Sky deal means that the club that finishes bottom of the Prem this season will get more money than the team that won it in 2013.

 

All 20 Prem clubs are now in the top 40 of the world's club rich list for the first time ever.
