Football language

Can anyone help me?

I'm doing some research into the language used at football matches.

What sort of phrases, sayings or abuse are shouted at the players, officials or other fans in your country?

How are they said in the native language (and/or dialect) and how do they translate?

I'd be grateful if anybody could PM me with any information, especially if it is too rude to print in the forum.

The most popular is by far "Jebac PZPN" meaning "F*ck the FA"

'Yeah, Moe, that team sure did suck last night. They just plain sucked! I've seen teams suck before, but they were the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked!'

In Romania we pretty much use every curse existent at football matches..
Most common is probably this: Futu-ti mortii matii ! Wich is translated like this: the dead(relatives suposedly) of your motherThis is how we prnounce it(I added a bit of red-neck accent in it):

We are very hatefull and agressive in our swering arsenal and also very "creative"

Probaly Romania is the "best" country in the world at swearing,cursing and insulting...

Also,arguably the most used chant when you want to insult a football personality goes like this(I'll use Gigi Becali,the owner of Steaua as example)
"Becali,Muie Becali(claping hands)Becali,Muie Becali(claping hands)
Muie means that he sucks our cocks...

I'm not kidding here, and I've said it before, if you look deep down in your soul you'll realize that Romanians are master race.
