When one player scores three goals in a single game it is known as a hat-trick. The term 'heavy metal football' describes the style of play implemented by German football coach Jurgen Klopp. As a style, it is high intensity and fast, involving rapid counter-attacking moves. A 'Hollywood pass' is a pass which looks impressive, but doesn't necessarily achieve much, such as a cross-field diagonal ball. Example: "Steven Gerrard is incredibly gifted, but he tries too many Hollywood passes when he should just keep it simple.
To 'hoof the ball' is to aimlessly clear the ball out of defence instead of carefully picking a pass. Example: "Everyone wants Ireland to play it out from the back, so why are they always hoofing the ball? It exposes bad decision-making on the part of the passer. Example: "His passing is normally very accurate, but he's sold his team-mate short there with a complete hospital pass. A 'howler' is an embarrassing mistake, usually made under little pressure. Goalkeepers are most associated with howlers, but it can happen to any player on the pitch.
Example: "What seemed like a routine pass back has turned into a nightmare situation for the goalkeeper. What a howler! When a player is deemed to be in another player's pocket, they are being kept under control. The term 'in his pocket' is normally used to indicate when a defender has marked an attacker well. Example: "Not many people can keep Sergio Aguero quiet, but Virgil van Dijk has had him in his pocket all afternoon.
Normal time in football is 90 minutes, but a referee can add on time at the end of the match based on stoppages for injuries and so forth. This is known as injury time. Other names include stoppage time and added time. When a player is described as playing 'in the hole' it means they are occupying the space between midfield and attack.
Putting the ball 'into row Z' means clearing it as far and high as possible in order to avert danger. The idea is that row Z is the highest part of the stadium. La Masia is the name of Barcelona's youth academy, where young footballers are educated and trained. La Masia is a Catalan word which means 'the Farmhouse'.
In effect, losing the dressing room means that a manager cannot lead their team sufficiently and usually ends up with them losing their job. Example: "He started well and they bought into the philosophy, but when he stripped the captain of the armband he lost the dressing room. The 'magic sponge' is a tongue-in-cheek term for the rudimentary medical treatment of an injury through the use of a wet sponge. Example: "When Eden Hazard went down it looked fairly serious, but he's back up again now thanks to the magic sponge.
A head coach is described as a 'man manager' if they are considered particularly adept at motivating different players. A good man manager usually possesses good communication skills and emotional intuition. The 'man of the match' is the player who is judged to have played the best or had the most influence on a game. Match fixing in football is when the outcome of a particular game is deliberately influenced in order that someone - be it a player, players or criminal enterprise - can financially benefit.
Match fixing is a serious offence which can result in prosecution. If a country has a number of cup competitions, the 'Mickey Mouse cup' is usually the one which has the lowest financial reward. When the ball is said to 'hit the woodwork' or 'come off the woodwork' it means it has hit the post or crossbar. The term is a throwback to a time when goalposts were made out of wood. If one posits that a player cannot play 'on a cold, wet Wednesday night in Stoke' it means they would struggle to perform in England.
An own goal happens when a player puts the ball into his own net. An own goal is often a source of deep disappointment for a player and can haunt them through the remainder of a game, particularly if their team loses.
The Panenka is the name for a penalty kick that is chipped delicately into the back of the net. Named after Czech footballer Antonin Panenka, the technique has been deployed by the likes of Zinedine Zidane and Andrea Pirlo among others. When a team 'parks the bus' it means that they played a completely defensive game with little or no intent of attacking.
The term was coined by Jose Mourinho in his first stint as Chelsea manager when he accused Tottenham of 'bringing the bus' and leaving it in front of goal. Ironically, the term would later come to define Mourinho's tactical style. Example: Mourinho talking about his Inter team beating Barcelona in "We won the tie in Barcelona but everyone talks about Barcelona winning and says we parked the bus in front of the goal.
We didn't park the bus, we parked the plane and we did it for two reasons. One, because we only had 10 men and two, because we beat them at San Siro, not by parking the bus, or the boat or the airplane but by smashing them. A 'poacher' in football is a striker who is opportunistic and takes their chances. The Poznan, also known as The Grecque, is a celebratory dance performed by supporters in order to taunt the opposition.
The supporters turn their backs to the pitch, link arms and proceed to jump up and down while chanting their preferred song. The implication is that their team is so good that they know they will win - they do not need to watch. A professional foul is when a player deliberately obstructs an opponent in order to prevent them from scoring a goal or initiating a counter attack. It is a cynical pre-meditated tactic which is punished by a yellow card and sometimes a red card, depending on the severity of the foul.
Example: "Lionel Messi dribbled past four players before putting it on a plate for Luis Suarez to tap in. A 'rabona' is a skill move which involves kicking the ball with one's legs crossed by wrapping the kicking leg behind the standing leg.
Rabona is the Spanish term for skipping school and the move involves a level of deception. Remontada is the Spanish word for 'recovery' or 'comeback' and it is used to describe a remarkable turnaround in fortunes by a team that had been on course to lose. Sarriball or Sarrismo is the term used to describe the tactical style of football employed by Italian football coach Maurizio Sarri.
A fast-paced, attacking style which prizes possession, Sarri has implemented it at Napoli, Chelsea and Juventus. Scudetto is Italian for 'little shield' and it is shorthand for the Italian football championship. When a promoted team performs well in its first season in the new division then flounders in the second, it is known as 'second season syndrome'.
It can also be applied to individual players who dazzle in their debut year at a club only to endure a downturn in fortunes. Example: "All he had to do with guide it into the net, but he mistimed the kick. He's missed a sitter. St Totteringham's Day is the day when Arsenal fans celebrate when it becomes mathematically impossible for Tottenham to finish above their team in the league.
It is therefore a moveable feast, which may not occur every year. It became an internet sensation when Ray Wilkins uttered the phrase repeatedly while doing commentary for the Champions League clash between Real Madrid and Tottenham.
The stepover is a dribbling technique which involves stepping over the ball with one or both legs in order to confuse an opponent. Long a tactic of technical players, it is notably associated with Brazil icon Ronaldo and Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo. The role of the sweeper, or libero, is not as rigid as that of a traditional centre-back. The term 'tapping up' in football is used to describe the act of approaching a player who is under contract with another club without express permission of that club in order to initiate a transfer.
Strictly speaking, tapping up a player is not permitted, but in reality it happens a lot and is difficult to avoid. A testimonial is an exhibition football match that is held to honour a player who has contributed a considerable portion of their career to a club.
While there is no official length of time, it tends to be reserved for players who have played for a club for 10 years or thereabouts. A 'through ball' is a pass which is threaded through the opposition's lines of defence to a team-mate who has made a well timed run.
Example: "Kevin De Bruyne split the defence wide open with a sensational through ball to Gabriel Jesus. A tifo is a colourful, coordinated display by supporters, usually inside a stadium, but also outside. Tifo is the Italian word for the typhus fever.
Tiki taka is a tactical style of football which involves dominating possession and passing the ball quickly in order to overwhelm the opponent and unpick their defence. Interestingly, while the style was admired across the world, Guardiola took issue with the term because he felt it implied simply keeping the ball for the sake of it. It's not about passing for the sake of it. Total Football totaal voetbal in Dutch is the name of a tactical style of play that was pioneered by Ajax and the Netherlands national team in the s.
The concept of Total Football is that any player on the team can fulfil any role as necessary, allowing a fluid, dynamic approach. While it was popularised by the Dutch in the s, it later became the foundation of the modern-day Barcelona team when Johan Cruyff took over as manager of the club in the late s.
When a team wins three trophies it is described as 'doing the Treble'. Generally speaking, a treble requires a team to win their domestic league along with two important cup competitions. Lesser competitions are often disregarded. The term 'ultras' is used to describe a branch of football fans who demonstrate great fervour in their passion for a club by creating loud, colourful displays during matches. While it is not always the case, some ultra groups have a tendency towards hooliganism and are associated with organised crime.
When a player is described as being 'unplayable' it means that they are performing so well that they cannot be contained. When a football pitch is in such a bad condition that a game of football cannot be played on it. In football, the term wardrobe is used to describe a defender who is massive in stature and who blocks and clears every ball that comes into their area.
A 'worldy' is another term a goal that is considered to be of world-class quality. Worldies tend to be long-range shots, but they can also be difficult manoevres such as bicycle kicks.

That is the whole point. A push is where a bet is neither won or lost.

To play a match behind closed doors is to do so without spectators. It is commonly used as a punishment by football authorities as it denies a club the chance to earn money through gate receipts. A bicycle kick is a method of shooting or passing which involves a player being airborne and usually playing the ball in the opposite direction to the way they are facing. Sometimes referred to as an 'overhead kick', the bicycle kick is so called because a player appears to cycle through the air upside down.
Keeps on upping the ante - relentless. A big-game player is one who routinely performs well in a highly pressurised environment such as a final, a heated derby match or a decisive league fixture. Big-game players are not overwhelmed by nerves or the occasion and are capable of affecting the outcome of big games.
Example: "Lionel Messi is the all-time top scorer in the history of El Clasico. This guy is the ultimate big-game player for Barcelona. A player who joins another club upon the expiry of their contract is said to have moved 'on a Bosman'. If a team is accused of 'bottling it' it means they have thrown away a game from a position of usually significant advantage. While the term 'to have a lot of bottle' refers to an individual possessing boldness of spirit, 'to bottle it' in football is to show a weakness of character.
Example: "The second Spurs get close to winning anything they go and bottle it. Biggest bottle-jobs in football! Example: "Mohamed Salah made the difference, bagging a brace to send Liverpool on their way to victory against Everton. They were dubbed 'Babes' due to the relative youth of the team.
CR7 is a nickname for Cristiano Ronaldo which combines his initials and favoured number. The Portugal star has turned the nickname into a brand, selling underwear, fragrance and other items under the name.

The word means 'door bolt' or 'chain'. It was notably used by Inter in the s as well as many of Giovanni Trapattoni's teams. When a player or defence is described as having been "caught sleeping" it means they have not been concentrating enough on their job or paying attention to the player they are supposed to be marking.

A clean sheet is when a team does not concede any goals in a match. Sometimes known as 'a shutout' in North America, it uses the image of an unblemished garment. The move involves feigning a pass and switching the ball to the standing foot by performing a degree turn. If a player plays for one club in round one of a cup then transfers to another club which is competing in the same cup, they would be cup-tied for the remainder of the competition.
A dead-ball specialist is a player who is particularly skilled at striking a ball when it is stationary, such as during a free kick or corner kick. Example: "Andrea Pirlo's sumptuous free kick was the difference between the teams and served as a reminder of why he is considered one of the game's greatest dead-ball specialists.

A dive in football is when a player deliberately attempts to hoodwink the referee into calling a foul by throwing themselves to the ground during a tackle.

The term 'Fergie's Fledglings' describes the clutch of young players who graduated from the Manchester United academy to the first team under the tutelage of Sir Alex Ferguson. It is inspired by the Busby Babes. First used in the s, the fact that Ferguson could often be seen pointing at his watch on the sideline and his teams scored plenty of late goals contributed to the perception.
Example: "Back in the season, with Manchester United and Sheffield Wednesday drawing , seven minutes of time was added at the end and Steve Bruce scored a winner. Thus Fergie Time was born.
