The 50 most over-used football pundit phrases

In football, commentating very often makes no sense whatsoever.

Left feet are 'cultured', diminutive playmakers are ‘magicians’ and blundersome defenders are ‘schoolboys’ – and if this sounds familiar, you’ll love this list, compiling the 50 most over-used clichés ever.

Whittled down by a focus group commissioned by MobileSlots.com, the fans came up with half a century of the very biggest punditry howlers, some misjudged idioms, others the sort of metaphors which give grown men the shivers. 

As Jamie Redknapp would say, it's LITERALLY the best thing you'll read all day.
