Doing my head in. Really hope it doesn't catch on and be posted here by dickheads describing goals in the same way they describe goals as 'clutch'

Seen that on Twitter, what the hell does it mean?

It's purely a gaming thing, I wouldn't worry about it getting into general use. Unlike whatever the hell a simp is.

it's a annoyingly popular term in US sports, that really doesn't need to seep into sports in Europe! Just means a goal that is scored in an important situation.

Football always seems the most important of the least important things.

Thank you. My brain is struggling with it. Some of these types of words, as annoying as they are, can fit the situation they are used for. I just cannot get this one to work in my mind.

Glad I'm not the only one who finds it annoying.

Glad I'm not the only one who finds it annoying.

And the thing with it is, it's used in so many situations:

'that's a clutch goal scored by Firmino'

or

'what a clutch play by Wijnaldum'

or

'Alisson is such a clutch player'

or

'another clutch performance by Liverpool'.

So it gets overused horribly in sport over here (US).

You hear it in golf quite a bit don’t you? A clutch putt usually being one that’s holed from about 6-10 feet away in an important situation. But yeah, definitely not needed in football!

Used clutch for years in gaming, it's not going to bleed out anywhere else. It's defined by winning the round solo when your team isn't in play. ;D

not in the UK! 

Clutch penalty is one I've never heard thankfully, but then I don't listen to any US football commentators, so that may be why.

I think his behaviour over the last 3 years or so has been nothing short of a disgrace. More goal involvements than any other defender since his debut. He's only 21. Who the hell does he think he is? He needs to reign it in a bit and let the more established players like Wank Bissaka do their thing.
