EOTW #18

Football. The beautiful game. It's everywhere at the moment - so why should your favourite MOTD-analysed* Euphemisms Of The Week be any different, eh? Commentators are a rich seam of euphemistic possibility; in fact, I'm convinced some of the pundits try to shoehorn them in deliberately (yes, you, Robbie Savage). Anyway, recently observed on the TV & Radio coverage of the FIFA World Cup 2010:
  • Dropping back into the hole
  • Testing the keeper's handling
  • Closely marking the big pair up front
  • Jostling for position in the box
  • Letting fly from distance
More to follow...

* no, not really.
