The poms use it (especially in the east e.g. Essex) say something they like happens to them they will go 'get in!' which means yes or wicked or something. It originally came from football (when someone scored a goal they would yell 'get in' but now it also represents when something else great happens e.g. winning a raffle 'get in' or rocking up to a party and there being heaps of hot girls and booze. I've heard guys say get in, in those instances as well.
From what I have seen during my years in London, English people punch the air and shout 'come on' or 'get in there'. They do it when they are happy about something and their face turns pink/red like lobsters.

A guy in the bar won the pool and he keep on punching the air shouting 'COME ONNNNNN' while crying and spit coming out of his mouth. His girlfriend give him hug and he start bursting out in tears. He then started lifting his shirt showing big belly and dancing with big glass of beer.

It's an expression of success or celebration. I think it originates from scoring a goal in football.

I love this reply

I hear many British metal detectorists say the same thing when they find a gold coin. I always thought it meant "get in my pocket" but when I asked a friend he told me it originates from Football. "Get in the goal" possibly, but either way it is a celebratory exclamation.

Yeah, I'm from London and we use it all the bloody time. It's a display of happiness, or pride - a substitute for 'way to go' or 'hell yeah'. It's generally used for more casual stuff - for example, if you got engaged, your friends PROBABLY wouldn't say 'get in'.


'I didn't fail my test!' 'Get in!'

'She gave me her number.' 'Get in!'

'Arsenal won.' 'Get in!'

'Roast chicken for dinner tonight.' 'Ah, get in!'

Hope that makes sense x

Get in , probably mean "come inside". Get on would be the same or different?

"get in!" is what I would class a very Northern Irish phrase, you'll hear it regularly down the local while watching football etc. Its usually a positive thing, for example a nice goal would be met with "get in!" or it can be used for encouragement, most of the time it's positive but it can be used sarcastically (us norn Irish are sarcastic buggers 😂)
