Not much chance of coming back from this now….

   Damn Good Seeing-to

Team are giving up…

   GUBBING! [The Holy Grail !]

Ultimate goal achieved. Team have embarrassed themselves…


Like running into ISIS on the football field…

   A Wham!

Named after celebrity cottager George Michael, although was also known as an East Stirling (before their alarming habit of winning games).

   A Wet Wyngarde

Named after another celebrity cottager, legendary actor Peter Wyngarde, whose career was cut short after he was caught in a gents toilet in Gloucester trying to pick up a young man.

  A Dry Wyngarde 

The levels of Wet and Dry refer to a seeing-to that will hurt more with/without lubrication.

Anything over 10 is ‘Lubbock+’ as no-one will be walking away from that

There is also such a thing as a Stealth Gub. This must be called early – no waiting til after the first half and no calling it when a team is already 4-0 up.
