Buzzword Bingo: Will we hear ‘parked the bus’ on MNF?

Monday Night Football returned to our screens with a bang last week as Manuel Pellegrini’s rampant Manchester City outfit dismantled West Brom at the Hawthorns.

And ahead of the latest edition bookmaker Ladbrokes has priced up a selection of possible soundbites we may hear in the preamble to tonight’s clash between Liverpool and Bournemouth.

All of your favourite clichés are included as well as a few game-specific options to listen out for when Ed Chamberlin, Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher sit down to discuss both the weekend’s action and the upcoming contest at Anfield.

‘Parked the bus’ shares joint-favourtism at the head of the market with odds of 2/1 about its inclusion.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho failed to do just that yesterday and it’s a topic of conversation that Messrs Neville and Carragher are likely to allude to following the champions’ capitulation.

‘Worldie’ is another attractive 2/1 shot if you think the panel will bracket Fernandinho’s strike or Olivier Giroud’s acrobatic effort in that category.


Alternatively, Carra may bring up Phillipe Coutinho’s recent match-winning effort against Stoke…

Meanwhile, there could be a bit of value in backing ‘top four this season’ (3/1) in reference to Liverpool’s hopes in 2015-16.

Or if you’re looking for a leftfield option then ‘future England manager’ at 7/1 may appeal given the rising stock of Cherries boss, Eddie Howe.
