Dead man walking is not exclusive to football but the Aberdeen manager acts like one, looks like one and looks like he knows he's one.

He brings legs to the team (aye, two of them). 

He’s put in a great shift (he’s not a miner FFS)

They never know when they’re beaten (not even at full time?)

“The referee has done well to keep his cards in his pocket this early in the game”

That’s one that always gets right on my tits.

A similar foul in a Dons v Motherwell game would be a yellow, maybe a red.

In the Glasgow Derby (note the term), it’s a wee word in the ear & “sensible refereeing”.

Commentator's curse

Great team on paper

Some team "over-achieving" / Punching above their weight

They scored too early

The boys left everything out there

He's hit that too well

You can always tell by the player's reaction

When Rangers were "relegated" 🙄

When  a striker has made a run in the box, gets on the end of a cross and scores. 

"he's gambled" 

What has he gambled?  If the cross doesn't come in, does he have to make some sort of payout? Why is it a gamble?

“Up top” - used to be called up front. 

Why is defence not referred to as ‘down bottom’ 🤔 or down below. Ooh err Mrs

To be fair on this one I think they mean he’s gambled on the defender missing the ball or having some sort of fuck up when the defender should be heading it away.

But he hasnt gambled. There is nothing at stake for the forward. 

If the defender doesn't miss the ball or fuck up, the forward hasn't lost anything. What is the gamble?

Because you should probably go and challenge the defender for the ball but you can run in behind and “gamble” he misses it and are clean through.
