#Fergietime (cont’d)

Following on from my last post, it seems that ‘Fergie Time’ has made it into the Urban Dictionary with the following description:

‘Fergie Time”:  Any amount of time, in any football (soccer) match, which has been added on, in addition to the added time (injury time) that had already been prescribed at the end of the 90 minutes.  Any amount of time that a match is played after the said amount of added time, is referred to as ‘Fergie Time’.  (Added time of 3 minutes has been announced, play carries on after 93 minutes, player scores on 95 minutes).

I was also interested to see another entry in this section – ‘Fergie Watch’ which is a timepiece that runs contrary to the laws of physics.  If your football team is winning after 90 minutes your watch actually runs faster than the referee’s.  The other team’s coach has a watch that runs slower and the referee runs like the clappers whether you’re winning or losing.  This is Fergie’s Watch.
