Sorry, I couldn’t help it with this one. This description of Spurs superstar Gareth Bale as a ‘winger-cum-hole’ player is too good and too childish an opportunity to ignore. This description came courtesy of SportsPro Magazine, by the way.

Yes it is adolescent and it is base. But c’mon…  ‘cum-hole’ ?

    Not sure which friends across the Atlantic you’re referring to, but it certainly isn’t London-based SportsPro magazine. Or are you based in the US?

  3. Alan Duffy says:

    @Confused reader – Holy God, you are right! Was sure it was a US publication. “winger-cum-hole player” certainly isn’t a phrase I’ve ever ever heard in the UK. Have amended piece now!! Ta!

    Haha! This reminds me of that time when somebody blew a fuse after the term “cross-cum-shot” was used in an article about a women’s football match on this site lol….good times
