In a pandemic of a respiratory virus, that they should NOT gob and snot all over the pitch FFS. GROSS.

People should know that "cretin" is a terribly offensive word.

@Wizadorawobble Well, I never knew its origins. Now I know.

@Wizadorawobble

People should stick to the actual discussion in the thread instead of looking for any minor infraction to seize upon and beat the OP with.

Equally horrendous is the finger on the nostril to clear the nose.🤢 Maybe they should make them wear masks or fine them every time they did it.

I was just tucking in to dinner when I was treated to a juicy close up of just that (hurk). I thought exactly the same thing - surely they've been advised against spitting and... snot rocketing.

I get why they do it, their mouths fill with saliva, but yeah. It's a really bad time to be spitting on the pitch.

I wondered if they were going to make players wear masks but it would be too impractical. Imagine being a goalkeeper and trying to keep the damn thing on while you're throwing yourself all over the place.

They are constantly tested for COVID-19 so while minging, it isn't going to spread a virus they haven't got.

Snot rocketing! Love it 😂 (the phrase, not actually doing it!)
