|'roster' when did this term become the norm in the UK for footy squads? on 15:28 - May 27 by J2BLUE|
Who calls it roster other than Americans?
Nobody. And no proper football fan calls football 'footy. It's even worse as a term than soccer.
There are a lot of BS terms used by commentators now on British TV which are nonsense which should be put out to roost. 'Recycling the ball' is one.
