|1.||as i say|
One of those irritatingly meaningless phrases English footballers use too often in TV interviews. It usually sounds like they're trying to claim they were the first to think up whatever predictable crap they're talking about. Only they're not clever enough to think like that...
"As I say, if you score goals you win games"
"It was always going to be hard to beat Liverpool, but, as I say, we won"
