‘It’s time for pundits to cease utilizing participant nicknames – they are not your friends’
Kyle Walker can completely do one.
Spare us, Kyle. You’re not sorry about “betraying your soul mate”. You’re sorry you bought caught and your apology was as empty because the Etihad on a mid-week matchday. The mud had barely settled and there he was within the papers on reputational injury management.
It was textbook Walker, utilizing velocity to make up for his errors. But somebody ought to inform him life off the sector isn’t the identical as on it. For occasion, you shouldn’t all the time be attempting to attain.
What’s worse is he tried to play the sufferer by whimpering about lacking his children. Well right here’s an thought, mate: don’t harbour secret households and your spouse received’t take them away.

Pack it in, name-abbreviators
It could be me getting outdated however can we cease abbreviating footballers’ names please?
Language shortcuts are as historic as Roy Hodgson’s eyebrows however the truth that pundits working for revered broadcasters are referring to Manchester United’s No. 8 as ‘Bruno’, Liverpool’s right-back as ‘Trent’ and Chelsea’s boss as ‘Poch’ significantly grinds my gears.
Lads, they aren’t your mates. And even when they’re, have some bloody integrity. You’re on nationwide telly, not down the Rose and Crown. What’s subsequent, ‘Bruyne’? ‘Big Ange’? ‘Slabhead’?
These types of amateurish abbreviations are Jermaine Jenas-levels of grating and it’s little marvel we find yourself with pillocks like Thogden (who, you ask? I envy you) doing evaluation on Sky Sports News given fundamental broadcasting requirements are deteriorating quicker than Sheffield United’s survival probabilities.
Anyone allergic to names with greater than three syllables wants chopping, as a result of this Arsenal Fan TVification of mainstream soccer should be stopped!
Stop policing the celebration police
You know who I’m getting sick of? The celebration police police.
I realise the cold-blooded, no-nonsense days of outdated, the place smiling was unlawful inside a 50ft radius of Roy Keane, are about as retro as Gianni Infantino’s hoodie-suit (Google it), however am I the one one who thought Jamie Carragher had a degree about Martin Odegaard’s digicam clowning?
Granted, Carra’s criticism stemmed from pure salt, what with Liverpool dropping, however that doesn’t make him mistaken.
Look eventually season. Arsenal’s title desires disintegrated faster than Reece James’ hamstrings after months of ‘Oh, let them enjoy themselves you fun sponge!’. They may do with having somewhat poise. Especially Mikel Arteta, who flip-flops up and down the touchline like he’s hopping between scorching frying pans.
Are gamers allowed to go overboard with their celebrations? Of course they’re. Are pundits allowed to name them out for it? Also sure. So sit back a bit, celebration police police.
