What makes your dad mad watching football?

Andy Halliday and attackers getting in behind James Tavernier. Goes mental every time.

When a player is playing poorly, he always brings up Duncan Stanners, who he claims was the worst player who ever played for Rangers. For perspective, the guy left Rangers in 1955. :D
I'll be really disappointed if his dressing room nickname wasn't Duncan stauners

Had the old boy round for Gers st Joe's the other night, joyous as ever.

It's like he's stuck in a football timewarp from the 60s and 70s.

His biggest gripe (and i mean genuinely losing the plot about), is the ball not being in the quadrant for a corner, he has no concept of whole of the ball whole of the line, so actually gets out his seat and shouts at the TV, it's spectacular to witness.

You should have seen his face when I tried to explain why the linesmen now late flag as well......

So, anger management issues of my own old man aside, what makes your own da mad watching football?
I'd say in my old man's case watching it with his two sons. Although I think his younger son drives him to distraction more than moi. He's the negative one.

May 2nd, 1999, and my old man aged, 62, does a Klinsman on my brother's living room floor at after Albertz's penalty.

If we had captured it,, it would be required watching on matchdays at Ibrox.

I don’t know what my dad learned about football growing up in Patrick but he gets very annoyed when teams don’t waste time correctly.

‘take it to the corner flag!!!!!’

‘You never see Rangers take it to the corner flag’

He’s gets visibly annoyed about it. Was back home for a holiday recently and he uttered these words during a match at the women’s World Cup - he has no skin in that match atall.

I should add, he was captain of Glasgow Uni at one point, played for Drumchapel Amateurs and played Scotland School boys. Loves the ball in the corner flag though.

Pretty much every Scottish pundit.
Lennon
Brown
Sergio Busquets.

My granda was less than *ahem* complimentary about Bobo Balde and Sol Campbell. In fact, always had a comment or 10 whenever Arsenal were playing. You think there's a pattern of sorts, but his favourite players since Souness? Mark Walters and Rod Wallace.
Also wasn't a fan of the offside rule. Phoned up Clyde one night to have his say. Quickly binned as he uttered "it ruins a fùcking good game of football". DJ did agree with him to an extent.

No sure what drives him mad but he re-iterates 3 things.

1. Just run at defenders, that’s how you beat them, Ryan Kent was proof of this theory in his eyes.

2. “Just hit it”, No matter where the ball is, just shoot. I think Albertz spoiled him in this respect

3. He has a penchant for playing players out of position. His latest has been “I’d give Katic a shot up front because he always scores / get penalties at set pieces”

He is fucking mental

The fact that he can't see it anymore. He is in his nineties with two cataracts, still shouts like mad at the TV and radio though.
This was my Granda in the last two years of his life after he went blind. A man that didn't really have a team just enjoyed watching football and he used to hate he couldn't see it anymore. Then he would constantly moan about the crowd making a noise as he said he couldn't hear the commentators and didn't know what was going on.

My old man Knew Joe Harper and he fuckin hated him............Think it was the 78 world cup and I think he came on as a sub, he got up and turned the telly off.......I was only 11 at the time and it was the first time I heard my Dad swear......It was a severe case of tourettes..........Only thing he hated was how much money they made...

Literally everything, I've actually stop watching Football with him, angriest he's been in a while was after we cuffed I think it was Hearts away last season

Best one was the time we beat The Tims at Parkhead 4 -2 (When Pedro scored a cracker) Rangers were up 4 -1 and when Celtic got their 2nd goal he launched his slipper at the TV :D
