When I was little, around primary school age, I had some misconceptions about football.
You played for your local club, ie everyone who ply for Argyle came from Plymouth.
Now for my favourite one. I thought that the goalie and goalkeeper were different people. The goalie was the bloke who stopped the ball going in the net on a Saturday afternoon, the goalkeeper looked after that goals, keeping them painted white and putting out the nets.
Anyone else have anything embarrassing it share?
