Short corners
Diving - altho because I am a no nonsense defender if an opposition player wants to dive I am more than happy to give him a real reason to go down

Players who run off with the ball at throws or free kick then throw is back! No need, straight yellow no questions!

People who say Steven Gerrard is an honest player!

boring 0-0s
games decided by one fluke goal or refereeing error
people who think Arsenal are amazing simply because they stick to one (tedious) way of attempting to score.

but mainly:

the away goals rule. I **** ing hate the away goals rule

Presenters that say " now lets look at this decision from a different angle " or " let me slow it down for you"
No im sorry sunshine you cant do that in the match so what was your gut feeling, then and only then once they've said on air what they would honestly give looking at it once, should they slow it down

Players diving
Players going down under the lightest of touches
Keeping the ball in the corner to waste time
Bad decisions by refs week in week out that have a massive impact on the result.
Jonathan Woodgate
The way everyone licks Wayne Rooney's ********

More will come to me later.
Bold are the biggies.

I'll also add Tim Lovejoy, Sunday Supplement on Sky, the fact that Adrium Durham is employed to talk about it.

Ignorance of Big 4 club fans towards the lower divisions

The amount of money in the game, its absolutely ridicilous. You should play for a team because you're proud and love the game/ team (which probably a tiny minority do, but not enough).

Diving. Man up! You got tapped on the leg there's no need to roll around in 'agony'.

Police winding fans up and creating situations that never existed.
