Hey everybody!
I'm looking for idioms connected with soccer (footbal in BrE). I found only a few:
to do a bicycle / scissors kick
to do bannana kick
to nutmeg a defender
to play one-two pass
to shoot into the near / far post

If you can help me and list any other, I'd really appreciate it.
I need it for my MA thesis
go to www.google.com and do exact search (in quotes) on football idiom, football slang, soccer idiom, and soccer slang.
OK, I'll try doing that. Thx
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Are you still looking. So am I? as am an English teacher and football fan, should be able to find a few.
If you have some you could send me, would be appreciated.

Hi! My name is Arkady, I am from Ukraine. You`ve written that you have some material about soccer slang. I am writing a method-guide for my students of physical training department. I`ll be very glad to get some information about English soccer slang.

Best regards, Arkady Chikibaev.
