The rich visual content of the Ronglish vocabulary is showcased with this delightful description of a glancing backward header. Often used in conjunction with ‘second post’.
While much of Ron’s language spread quickly throughout the football world, this key phrase had to be adapted slightly for the Sky era.
Andy Gray – a chief Ronglish plagiarist – truncated the term to “eyebrows”, a subtle tribute to the anything-but-little eyebrows sported by Richard Keys.
Ron might say:
It’s gone in there, little eyebrows from Bouldy and there’s big Tone steaming in at the second post.
