Football Language: 110%

110% As we know, football fans and players like a cliche and one of the most common is the phrase ‘110%‘. This is often used with the verb ‘to give’ as in the example ‘the players gave 110%‘ and it means that the players tried really hard to win a game. The cliche 110% is not used as much as before but it is still very well-known in the game. Sometimes you may even sometimes hear a manager say that his/her team gave 200% when he or she feels that they have given their all but this might lead to the manager being ridiculed or mocked. 110%.
    • Example: The manager was happy that his players had tried hard – he felt they had given 110%.
