Probably been said before, but the whole placing the ball just over/on the edge of the line when taking a corner gets on my nerves every week  :lol: It's like how much advantage is that really giving you?

I like it when the linesman makes a show checking it's legal. Doesn't run round and check the other side though, does he?

Been mentioned on here before but it’s even more annoying when fans of the team that are losing complain about it near the end of games allowing them to waste an extra 20 seconds putting it inside the quarter circle.

Not a pet hate, but sick of the social media fawning over Van Dijk showing Sissoko onto his left foot. Basic defending ffs.
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too

Aye it was good defending to stop him passing to Son but it's not like showing someone onto their weaker foot is ground-breaking.

That's not why it's had the reaction it's had though. It's the combination of him showing him on his weaker foot and blocking the pass to Son when he was outnumbered, on his own, and the last man. If all of that combined is still basic defending then I haven't seen it done as well as that tbh.

Haven't watching it many times but could he not have just stepped up playing Son offside?

Not sure how you can step up in those circumstances as it would give Sissoko free run on goal.

That would have just given Sissoko the time and space to run through on goal and probably get it on his right foot.

That's one of the most satisfying things in defending, when you can block a pass and threaten the person with the ball. Especially when they get caught by indecision and just do neither.

It's not exactly hard to confuse Sissoko tho, when he isn't passing the ball to someone 5 yards away. Spurs will never move on to the next level unless they upgrade on players like him.

He's been class this season tbh. I'd be surprised if they chose now as the time to get rid.

I've not been paying attention to him to be honest, just going off his stats. No goals, couple of assists, a shot every other game and a tackle a key pass and a dribble per game. Not sure what his contribution is

He has been good this season, but as you say his stats are awful.

Just generally very good all-round play, particularly strong runs and good on the counter. But aye, his stats are still s****, although it's less important when you've got Erikson, Alli, Son, Moura, Kane, and the full backs doing the goals/assists bit I suppose.

We’d be a million times better now if we’d still had Wijnaldum, Sissoko & Townsend. Think we’d be up with the likes of Leicester today had we stayed up that season.

Hate might be a bit extreme however players hopping onto the pitch as some sort of superstition.

It probably doesn't count as a pet hate, but it really annoys me how the media use the same words over and over again in their headlines like "player reveals" and "injury blow". Reading Newcastle news alone I probably see it 10 times a day. They are journalists you would think they would have a wider range of vocabulary.

Hmm, I dunno, I think that one's a little wide of the mark.

I hate it when they refer to a player as “star”- proper winds me up
