In my own defence of that method, full stops are a bloody site easier to access on a phone or tablet keyboard than hunting down brackets.

People that write Souf London, Sarf Landan, Sowf Lundun, Saaf Landon or any other variety of South London.

What are you trying to achieve? I can understand it slightly if you're 13 years old and that sort of thing amuses you.

Fort Neath amuses me though :)

Saw a bloke at the Watford play off final a year or two back with a 'Sowf Lundun' T shirt and absolutely loved it. Being able to laugh at yourselves is a good thing.

The Terry Henry adverts on Sky. Jesus, really? The little glint of love in Redknapp's eye, the really unoriginal use of Born Slippy, Henry sounding all deep about the effect Sky have had on his career. It's the most over the top marketing possible for what is essentially another bloke talking about a game of football.

The only redeeming thing is that they're paying 6m for him to do it :D Actually, who am I kidding, it'll be us who subscribe to the bloody channel that'll be doing that

Reading your post makes me even more glad that I do not, and never have had, $ky TV. Yuck.

It seems to be the fashion these days for football managers to refer to their players as a "group". "we've got a really good group here and if the group plays to its capability, we'll do well" etc etc.

What's wrong with "team". It's a team. A team!

If Redknapp is on more than a tenner a week then something had gone horribly wrong in the world somewhere.

I can handle that, even the grammarcops too, but the threadcops (not mods)who aggressively patrol some threads and decide to act as spokesperson for an entire messageboard make me cringe and get annoyed with myself for feeling that way.

One more thing much more annoying. Sky TV dicking around with kickoff times at relatively short notice which means an unnecessary element of risk when booking cheap flights in the easyjet sale. (Hurry sale ends at midnight!)

"Can I get 20 Marlboro Lights/a bacon sandwich/a cup of tea?"
No mate. You can HAVE one if you are going to pay for it, but I will get it for you, you stay there.

Rant Over

Yep, that really annoys me. I once heard someone ordering some fast food and opened with "Do me a double cheeseburger and fries".

:confused:

I once heard someone at a bar approach the barmaid and casually ask for "a pint of numbers please love". She had no idea what he was talking about, so somewhat sheepishly, he explained he wanted a pint of Kronenburg 1664.
