Overused Football Quotes - Football Clichés
Alexinho (AC Milan) 4 years ago
Just bored while waiting for 2nd half in some game and thought I could as well start a new thread where we could share some overused quotes been said from football. I will start with a couple.

"The ball is round"

"Cup is cup"

"The grass is green"

"A goal is a goal"

"Football is a game of 2 halves"

"We have to go out there give 110%"

"He run his socks of"

"There are no easy games"

"They are strong on paper"

"There is always a second half"

"Anything can happen"

"What are you feeling now? " (This last one is at least very famous and overused cliche in my country, Norway.)

Please feel free to add more cliches that I've left out here or just give your opinion on those cliches
