Now that was a classy move 18:12 - Jun 17 with 3679 viewsThe_Major

In case you haven't seen it.

Ref blows whistle to start match at Villa Park.

All players and officials take a knee for ten seconds, and then start the game.

Absolutely brilliant.

Yes, that took everyone by surprise. Wouldn't be surprised if Mings brought that about.

Why oh why do people have to 'take a knee' these days?

Why can't they just kneel?

Kneeling is with two 2 knees innit. 'Take a knee' is less discriminatory against anyone with only one knee. That's the only reason. Def info.

Dem Americanisms.

I won't even use the word 'movie' if I can help it.

But I often use others before beating myself up inside once I've realised.

I hate 'awesome' when describing something relatively normal too, or something that's really good.

That's in my top 5 of 'things I hate about modern language'.

'Sick'. It sounds stupid. You're not ill so stop saying it.

It's certainly no 'cool' which, despite its apparent reference to low temperatures to those who were old and out of the scene, made perfect sense.

It's like "I've got your back."

I think I have a dislike of Americanisms in general, but these two phrases are particularly annoying.
