(a throw-in is given)
Carlos: How are you so excited?
Bob: Oh you don't understand, this lad has got an incredible giant throw-in.
A term used in english football to describe a feeling of the highest satisfaction possible for a team when they are perfectly in the middle of their league table. At this point a team has no ambitions and no hope to finish into the top positions or to -qualify for european competitions. The team is also safe from being relegated which means that they do not have to take the rest of the season seriously at all as they have absolutely nothing to play for. At this stage the players are seen to 'slack off' as they enjoy the rest of the season by having nothing to play for apart from aiming for draws in their remaining games in order to maintain their midtable status.
James: Look how off the pace this Bournemouth side are. What is going on?
Bob: Who can blame them, they're in midtable heaven!
