|Silly football quotes.|
Here are a few quotes from the chapter 'A Strange Choice Of Words (Part 1)' which show that footballers and pundits apparently use a different dictionary from the rest of us...
1) “When David Beckham leaves the game, it will take a very special player to come in and carry the mantelpiece.”
2) “I was inbred into the game by my father.”
3) “That was never a penalty in a million planets.”
