While I don't share all your sentiments there, I agree about people saying "we" when referring to sports teams. If you are not in the team, then please do not talk about the triumphs, efforts, struggles etc. of your preferred team in the first person! My father in law does it all the time, even though I am quite sure he hasn't kicked a ball in forty years.tvbox said:The fact that the football season is starting again. I've enjoyed the past few months of not hearing those lower class gits cheering on some overpaid yobs kick a ball around. :sigh:. Now everyone is going to be talking about them, referring to complete strangers as 'we', 'us', etc and it will be on the news.

Well, it was both a quote and my opinion as I seconded it . Otherwise I wouldn't have said it in the first place if it wasn't my opinion!!!Sanders79 said:Ah ok, I thought it was your own opinion! Some carefully applied quotation marks would have helped to avoid doubt
Yeah it's mega-tedious. And they always make a big thing about whether or not they like champagne.The news coverage on people who win big on the lotto or euromillions. The way they dumb down to the public on what they can now afford.
"They can now afford 12 Wayne Rooneys or 40 ferarris or 1200 Man utd season tickets etc.."
I eat from a chippy by the sea all the time.It's cheaper than when i lived in London.Bigger portions,and tastes nicerFish and chips by the sea, remind me why this is so great again?
Paying twice as much for half the portion size you get anywhere else while pretending that we can tell the difference between fish that's half a day fresher than usual after it's been coated in batter and deep fried in god knows what while we try and simultaneously eat it and stop it blowing away.
