Time it was terminated methinks.

Instead o`the nice word `chances` you get, `We created a lot of `opportunities,` but we need to take the opportunities when we get the opportunities.`

Often followed by my plain-speaking response (tae the telly): Opportunities my a**e! What is this - Opportunity feckin` knocks!`

Yeh and `upward inflection`. You know where they can upwardly shove that. I seem tae recall that being an American affliction before it got here.

Do foreign coaches suffer from the same “Fusballspeak” when they arrive and do they develop their “Fusballspeak” over time in the country they work in. I believe the ex England boss McLaren ( I think that was his name) developed the Dutch “Fooshballshpeak” when he managed in Holland. 🤣

The year `Two thousand and...(etc)

As in the fitba` season: `two thousand and eighteen to two thousand and nineteen` - which is the mealy mouthed version of:

`twenty eighteen to twenty nineteen`

When, for example, was the Battle of Hastings?

Does anyone ever say it was, `One thousand and sixty-six?`

No, everyone says - or used to anyway - `Ten sixty-six.`

Or, for the year 1909 - does anyone call that `one thousand, nine hundred and nine?`

No, I never heard anyone call it anything but `nineteen oh nine`

Short and sweet folks, that`s how I like `em.

On a similar subject, who decided `www` was a good idea? Easy enough to type it but saying it - `double-you-double-you-double-you`.

I wonder if it`s the only abbreviation in existence that, when spoken, is far longer than what it`s supposed to be short for, i.e. `world wide web.` From three syllables they managed to make an abbreviation that is six syllables long.

If they had wanted something easy to type and easy to say, they could have chosen anything, for example `zzz` or `net`. It doesn`t need to mean anything, it`s only a signifier, like a piece of code.

They do, Parsmad, or at least they do in Italy, so I imagine it will also happen elsewhere.

I remember when John Toshack became manager of Real Sociedad. He learned a bit of basic Spanish and then tried it out in his post match press talks. Depending on how the game had gone, he`d tell the posse of eager journalists that he was either "Over the moon" or Sick as a parrot", in his best Spanish.

Cue all the hacks looking at one another with bemused wtf expressions. 😂

Well who needs 26 letters in the alphabet anyway. Maybe we could do without the `w` and just make it the `vorld vide veb`. 😉

Adding to that PARrot, people that say ‘ya know’ at the end of each sentence grinds my gears.

Work ones as well -

‘let’s take it offline’
‘sorry, I was on mute’

Those that respond to an email saying ‘thanks’ but copies in every man and their dog.

Those on LinkedIn who over egg success. e.g. ‘I’m absolutely delighted to share that I was successful and obtained first class certification in the automotive awards blah blah blah = they passed their driving test.

Those that post all this inspiration nonsense.

‘I think we need to kick the tyres on this more’

Those that send pointless emails very late at night, trying to indicate they are working late.

I`m sure we all use words and phrases that may be annoying to others. It seems that, after being asked a question, beginning the answer with the word "so" is universally disliked and I don`t like it either. One of my pals used to say "Know wat ah mean". It became the catchphrase of the Boxer Frank Bruno, as in "know wot oi mean `Arry". I once had a Victor Meldrew moment when I gently explained to two perfect strangers that the English language was almost poetic in its beauty and diversity and that it demeaned it to a large extent to use the word "like" 10 times in half a minute. I know, what a saddo I`ve become. On the other hand I do remember a work boss of mine telling me that he didn`t like to hear me use the word "basically". What was he wanting me to say? "Fundementally"?

`x` could get the chop. Most of them could be replaced with `ks` or `z` as in zylophone. The wee `x` at the top right of the laptop screen is really the multiplication sign, so we`d still have `x marks the spot.` As for the kisses at the end of a letter, we could write, `one measly peck` or `slobbery kisses galore` and `Xmas` could become `£mas` and `$mas`.

Scots Gaelic only needs 18 letters.

But then Scots Gaelic rely on a few combinations of letters to make other sounds, so a few letters next to each other is essentially seen as a single sound.

It started with a comment about the latest trend in interview speak. JH says "In Terms of" quite often. Jordan started doing it too.
