    This is quite a generic one but when a player comes back from injury and managers refer to it as "like a new signing". As a Liverpool fan I was a bit concerned that Rodgers said that Gerrard coming back from injury could be our best signing this summer. I know he just topped the 100 PWSTK recently and has been a colossal figure in Liverpool folklore and for England but it doesn't ease fears that Liverpool are one or two players short.

    Yes, this annoys me, as do most of the constituents of the litany of cliches that inexplicably pass for football punditry or insight.

    I'm thinking of just devoting this entire thread to things said on the BBC Live Feed during football games; it really is intolerable to have updates interspersed every other minute with utter nonsense.
