What is it with football and the very much used understatement, such as the phrase used by this club, "“We are aware that we disappointed many people with yesterday’s performance"
Someone, for example, misses an open goal in a promotion decider, or misses a penalty in a Cup Final, and the commentator says "he'll be disappointed with that." Disappointed?. If I was in that position I'd be furiously kicking hell out of the advertising hoardings.
What got me was that they (team thrashed 9-0) let 5 players go on holiday before the league had finished! Imagine if Liverpool had said to half their players after winning the league, with 7 games remaining; bye, you can go on holiday.
