      Was about to post that.

      Short corners don't work. In the rare occasions they do, these are the exceptions that prove the rule.

      Corners, in general, rarely work. Thinks someone posted once that about 1 in 100 corners leads to a goal, in the Premier League.

      Things that annoy me, the press and the gullible few that gobble up every word as fact.

      Because they have all spent out on a striker that has turned out to be sh*te and they can't accept it.

      Commentators annoy me, other than losing! Oh and short corners late in the game when you are chasing a goal, for crying out loud put it in the box!

      Actually, here in MLS the refs use this dissolving spray that looks like silly string. They circle the ball at the spot of the foul, then count 10 yards and spray a line that the wall must stand behind. It's a really cool concept and something FIFA should introduce worldwide.

      Sounds pretty good actually, certainly wouldn't be against that being introduced into the Premier League.

      Yeah this spray was first used here in Brazil, and has always been used since in our leagues, because it makes perfect sense.

      It's really cheap and easy to use/implement. Very effective too. I can't for the life of me understand why it isn't being deployed worldwide yet.

      The game demands so much from officials, it does no harm to give them some tools to better control the players in certain situations.

      Can you imagine if that was used in the EPL though? Every time the ref marked the ball position, walked 10 yards and marked the wall position, Sky would come up with a little graphic showing exactly how far the distance was and slate the ref for being a few inches out.

      I wasn't sure where it started, only something I see every week here in the States and really think it's a great idea.

      Seen that a couple of times when watching MLS coverage, the only thing is the ref does look a bit of tool running around with an aerosol can in his pocket!  ;D

      To be fair, MLS refs don't need much to look like tools as is :laugh:

      Can't believe this hasn't been said yet;

      When a referee blows for offside 5 seconds after the linesman has his flag up and the player was playing for the ball the whole time. It's like they get a kick out of seeing everyone have that split second of hope that the player is on side and THEN they blow the whistle. Just f**king blow the whistle straight away.

      Also, when a player protests and the referee simply stands there like a statue acting like a tough c**t without any intention to listen or explain. I'd be suspended multiple times trying to get a response by physically assaulting the cheeky fuckers.

      If a ref makes 2 or 3 mistakes out of 40-50 in 90 minutes, he has had a sh*t game and cost 'your' team the game, but if a player only makes 2-3 mistakes over the 90, he's had a stormer.

      I have a load of them:

      Commentators, who were one time bench warmers and do nothings who say..." When I played, I would....etc,etc"

      Any number of shitty, jerk off celebrities and reality TV actors who go to the matches and treat it as a fashion show, then do nothing but check and update their twitter and facebook while sitting in their sits and then go home after 35 minutes....while real supporters are forced to miss the match because they cant afford those seats.

      Face Painters...Ugh!

      Extremely fat, overweight guys who wear the jersey of their favorite player.  If you cant actually wear a standard size football shirt....like a medium or large...dont wear one.

      Have to agree on the commentators. Especially when it's sh*te ex players spouting ludicrious and inept tactical nonsense.

      Another thing is wages and transfer fees. Many of you will feel that it should be all kept in house but I think we deserve to know exactly what is spent and how much each player is earning. We already get a rough idea so getting the exact numbers would be interesting.

       Alan Ball when he played for Everton was a little thing that annoyed me, especially when he scored the only goal  at Goodison Park in a cup tie to knock us out.I could be wrong but I think it was 1966.To make matters worse I was stuck in the stands among a crowd of Evertonians,yes they actually got crowds at Goodison in those days. :laugh:

      Andy f**king Townsend, and all the other n*b heads who continuously bleat on about penalty appeals. Watching the slow mo and saying " yes, there was contact, penalty all day long" and such sh*te. A penalty is awarded for foul play you tosser, not contact, its a f**king contact sport. Tell em, there was contact but not enough for him to go down like he was shot by a sniper. No pen, book him for diving.
      It's tw*ts like these that have got 10 year old kids diving all over the place because they think they can, if they feel a player touch them. :mad:
