DO

NOT

START!!

Part of the reason that I've gone off football more and more over the last few years is the god-awful standard of English used by players and managers. Picky, I know, but it does my head in! retard

Oh Jeez, I always thought it was just used by eejit pundits who can't speak properly - terrible to see that it's spread to the written media!

It's exactly the same as saying 'he played great' or 'he played good' - no, it should be 'he played well'!
I know what you mean. Bless him, but when I listen to a Murray interview I can feel my gramatical knowledge wasting away... lol

Well, he may not know how to speak correctly, but at the end of the day, he lives in a huge house, has two massive Bentleys and earns £30k a week.

Of course it's worth it.

It makes you wonder why we pay these prima-donna morons so much?

I must protest.  It's one thing for dumb sportsmen to ignore adverbs, but it's another thing entirely for 'writers'.  It's play aggressiveLY.  The simplification of language leads inevitably to the simplification of thought (Stagger, 2009).


I'm sorry, but did you just reference yourself? You might as well have included the page number, too.

No idea why the writers are getting the blame. I didn't even bloody read the article, let alone proofread it.
