Shame the last one got deleted as there was some interesting takes, but we go again.

I think goals in football are overrated. Every so often, I see people on Twitter posting "OMG what a fucking goal" so naturally I'll go online and search for the clip of said goal, but turns out it's just another 40-yard screamer the likes of which I've seen a thousand times. Very rare that you see a proper special goal nowadays like an overhead kick, solo effort, Zidane-style volley or a proper team goal with amazing buildup and passing.

Agreed. Yesterday I seen that Lukaku had scored a 'BANGER', I had a look and it was just a shot outside the box.

Blimey. What we'd give for a goal scored from outside the box.

Son last season fits into this category. One of the most overrated goals I've ever seen. Literally runs 80 yards in a straight line unchallenged.

most people like a thing because other people like or do not like it rather than the intrinsic quality they found experiencing it and even then do not seek to evolve or review their own opinions meaning their opinion is based on their own opinion

I’m not saying they wouldn’t be hobbled immediately - as recently as the mid 80s Maradona was enduring several challenges a game that would lead to massive bans these days. I’m saying that they’d be athletically and technically superior to 99.9% of pros at the time.

I watched the Sweden v Brazil World Cup final on an video not long ago and what struck me was that Pele aside, both teams looked remarkably out of shape, unathletic, slow, ponderous and incapable of controlling the game. Liedholm’s opener in the 4th minute looked like the big lad down five aside who hangs up top all game, is shite but nicks a few in the last few minutes when everyone’s knackered, spread about and given up pressing. Defenders just standing off him, stood like statues, or doing crazy telegraphed lunges you could see coming ages ahead, nowhere near the ball.

I`ve grown to like camomile tea because it`s good for my dodgy belly.

Coffee on the other hand smells absolutely rank and have never drunk a cup in my 50+ years for that reason.

Whenever I contemplate having a cup of tea, I always come to the conclusion coffee is the far, far superior hot drink in almost all circumstances and go for that instead.

The obsession over "Squid Game" was completely down to clever marketing. It wasn't an exceptional series or anything, people just claimed to love it and bought merchandise because they were told to.

Also, the following things are completely overrated:

- Nandos
- Tesla Cars
- Fireworks
- Roast Dinners

Surely stuff like fireworks and roast dinners are too generic and too wide categories to be classed as overrated? Obviously it's a personal choice whether you like them or not, but there is such a variance between a crap box of garden fireworks and championship quality displays; or a findus frozen roast dinner for one and a roast cooked by a top chef.

Funnily enough I had only my second Nandos ever yesterday. It'd never be top of my list of places to go, but it was OK. The real genius is getting people to pay 12 quid for some chicken and a few chips. But I can get on board with the overrated shout.
