A ‘Football Sh*thousery’ Twitter account is full of incredible moments

On his podcast this week, Peter Crouch discussed how the word ’sh*thouse’ has changed in recent times.

The retired Premier League striker made the point that it used to be an insult; a way of describing a footballer who would pull out of tackles, for example.

But now it’s used almost as a term of endearment to describe a player who gets under the skin of opponents.

These days, football fans love a sh*thouse – especially if they play for their club.

And one of our favourite new Twitter accounts is all about football sh*thousery, featuring some classic moments.

@FootyRustling – which is followed by the aforementioned Peter Crouch – already boasts over 75,000 followers since it was created in February.

It’s full of absolute gold – and we thought we’d pick out some of our favourites moments for your viewing pleasure.

Steven Taylor copies the goalkeeper

Steven Taylor is a classic Premier League sh*thouse.

Here we see the former Newcastle United defender mirroring Asmir Begovic in an attempt to distract the Stoke City goalkeeper.

It clearly worked because Yohan Cabaye scored from the free-kick.

Federico Valverde’s red card v Atletico

Federico Valverde became an instant Real Madrid hero following one of the most cynical red card tackles you’ll ever see in the Spanish Super Cup final back in January.

With just five minutes left on the clock, Alvaro Morata had a golden opportunity to win the trophy for Atleti, only to be thwarted by Valverde.

Real Madrid went on to win the match on penalties, while Valverde was ironically named Man of the Match.

Roy Keane: ‘He didn’t have the baby’

When asked whether Robbie Keane would be available to face Germany in October 2015, Republic of Ireland assistant manager Roy Keane gave a typically blunt response to the media.

“Yes, why wouldn’t he be?” a puzzled Keane replied. “He didn’t have the baby. Unless he’s breastfeeding he should be all right.”
