今日小常識

'Fergie time' is the popular belief by supporters of other teams, that if Manchester Utd are losing after 90 minutes, the referee will extend injury time long enough for them to score and win. 'Fergie time' is 79 seconds - games went on 79 seconds longer when Manchester United were losing than winning.

很多非曼聯球迷相信 「弗爵時間」 fergie time 這個說法。這個說法的意思是如果曼聯在90分鐘比賽結束時落後於對方,那麼裁判就會故意延長傷停補時的時間,以給曼聯創造進球機會。「弗爵時間」通常為79秒 – 曼聯只要在終場時間到了的時候沒有贏,那麼比賽就會延長79秒。

今日短語

亞歷克斯·弗格森爵士,也就是我們熟知的老佛爺,經常因為球員在場上表現不佳而對球員暴跳如雷、狂暴怒吼。他吼叫時用的力氣巨大,球員們說感覺就像被電吹風吹過一樣。老佛爺的這種管理方式也就因此成為了 hairdryer treatment 「電吹風」管理。

例句

"The fear of getting the hairdryer was the reason why we all played so well. He was a manager you wanted to do well for." (David Beckham)

Players talk of the moment a switch is flicked in Fergie's head, he presses his face close to the you and gives you the hairdryer treatment.

請注意

短語 not have a hair out of place 的意思是某人衣冠外表非常整潔端莊。

John did not have a hair out of place for his important graduation ceremony.
