    also all the surrounding ref, waving cards, moaning about absolutely everything you see from the bigger teams. as a spurs fan always prided myself on the fact that we have a bit of dignity and get on with the game rather than trying to intimidate and sway the ref at every possible scenario.

    although after Balotelli and Lescott yesterday maybe had we been one of those clubs we would have walked away with at least a point as both should clearly have been sent off.

    so you want this to happen?
    Well that incident was a mix of crappy refereeing, and poor defensive awareness.

    I'm more referring to how it just slows down the game and stops quick counters in the middle of the pitch. Football is about goals and it just slows down the game preventing the chance of goals. Its not that i don't understand why players do it. It just annoys me

    People putting Bolton Wanderers as "one of the Manchester clubs". We are not a Manchester club!

    Also, if somebody refers to us as Bolton FC. It's just not right.

    Managers like Wenger who refuse to place the slightest bit of blame on players if they get beat and always find an excuse through one decision. (eg. Fulham 2-1 Arsenal)

    Pundits who seem to think Harry Redknapp is some sort of God

    Bias commentary

    Not necessarily events on the pitch but they're still football pet hates of mine.

    Goal music - with the exception of Norwich City.
    Entrance music
    All seater requirements
    Hoofball
    Cost of tickets
    Inconsistent refereeing decisions
    The analysis on MOTD/Football League Show
    The term ''EPL''
    Diving
    The Arsenal stadium announcer
    Marlon King
    ITV
    Branded stadiums
    Sepp Blatter
    The ''we're by far the greatest team'' chant. No, you're not.
    Yellow cards for overcelebrating/removing shirts
    Jobsworth stewards
    That Portsmouth supporter with the bell
    Badge kissing mercanaries
    El Hadji Diouf
    Subs walking off slowly
    Players who throw themselves to the ground and start screaming after receiving the slightest touch
    Games being postponed because of 'unsafe areas around the ground'
    Flat pack identikit stadiums

    Take a bow sir. That is bob on.

    Is this including people who watch the football factory buy a stone island jumper and think they are the top boy of a firm and procede to go around when you are away trying to kick off at disinterested home fans ? they are good for a laugh and a cringe but still a pet hate of mine

    During a match when the camera focuses on a player/manager whilst the ball is still in play.

    I would rather watch the match then someone's face.

    Sky's constant ****fest over Messi every time they show Barca or Revista - and they show Barca at least once a week.

    Revista is a joke to be fair. The first half an hour is all Barca & Real talk, as if there are no other teams to talk about.

    They're even ****ing over Messi now, before Real's game kicks off. Switched the TV off.

    Or switch to ITV and listen to Adrian Chiles talk nonsense :rolleyes: I'm with you on the television off option! I wonder sometimes how some of these people get these jobs.

    Says it all. (Admittedly this is fairly new since I'm kind of seeing an Arsenal fan so I have to put up with it on a more regular basis than I used to. :P)
    A total lack of atmosphere at games.
    The "Oh, you're a woman, you couldn't possibly follow football!" attitude some guys have.
    Sir Alex Ferguson.
    Barcelona.
    Wayne Rooney.
    Man United in general.

    And *breathe*.

    Clubs that play music after they score. Especially ****ing "Tom Hark". Are your fans so stupid that they need music played to tell them that they have scored?
