After the success of my Memorably Stupid Football Quotes, I just had to do another. Especially as there is no shortage of material. Do you have a favourite? Are you a big football fan?
He dribbles a lot and the opposition don’t like it – you can see it all over their faces.”
“I was both surprised and delighted to take the armband for both legs.”
I’ve always been a childhood Liverpool fan, even when I was a kid’
“Gareth Bale has been levitated to the status of one of the best players in the world.”
“The groin’s been a little sore but after the semi-final I put it to the back of my head.’
“Germany are a very difficult team to play — they had 11 internationals out there today.”
“There’ll be no siestas in Madrid tonight.”
“In football, you don’t really know what is going on but we will worry about that when it happens.”
These are too funny Alex.
Glad you enjoyed them Vinnie. They really are hilarious. Quite a few people seem to turn up a few times when I was selecting them ha.
Guess there’s loads of funny ones out there.
Love the dribble one especially!
It still makes me laugh and I’ve seen it countless times.
I like the dribble one especially. My top favourite is a cricket one: ‘The batsman’s Holding, the bowler’s Willey’.
That is a memorable one. Do you remember the ‘didn’t get his leg over’ one? If you like cricket ones, this should really make you chuckle. https://alexraphael.wordpress.com/2014/01/05/lines-of-the-day-davidacfield/
Before I knew the name, I assumed it was football, but in cricket it’s even more perfect.
These are all hilarious, but my favourite has to be ‘I’ve always been a childhood Liverpool fan, even as a kid’ 😂
Glad you liked them. This one should make you laugh too 🙂 https://alexraphael.wordpress.com/2014/03/25/lines-of-the-day-75/
gr8at stuff. It has to be the dribbling.
I think that is most people’s favourite. He had quite with skill with quotes. When his team got thrashed 7-1, he described it as an “eight goal thriller”. This one though, is just so brilliant https://alexraphael.wordpress.com/2014/01/10/lines-of-the-day-ronatkinson/
It sums up better the attitude of most managers after a game better than any other quote I’ve ever heard.
Ah, yes! Part two, thank you!! Man, so many laughs. That first one takes the cake this time because it comes with a great visual. So good!
So so so many to choose from haha. I think the first one is an unofficial winner. Still makes me laugh and I’ve seen and heard it countless times.
