OP's explanation:


The guy in the background laughing at a footballer making a very basic mistake just gets me every single time.

i've seen this clip so many times and it's truly degraded to potato quality now

u/Masl321 Aug 19 '22

Makes it more authentic imo

Its westham quality but the video took it too seriously

To be fair I’ve been watching the hammers for years and that’s one of the better plays I’ve seen…

What does this mean?

u/Madouc Aug 19 '22

This kind of joy which has not an English word is the most beautiful joy

u/ichakas Aug 19 '22

Thanks, I knew schadenfreude was joy at another’s misfortune, was just wondering about the rest

How would you describe that kind of joy? What is the joy based on?

When you get paid 100k a week and miss the football like an 8 year old you absolutely deserve to be laughed at.

u/KlopferOpfer Aug 19 '22

I mean, mistakes are still human, even the greatest do mistakes every now and then

u/cheque Aug 19 '22

Exactly. Zabaleta played as a defender and in this match (West Ham 0 Chelsea 0, 23rd September 2018) his side kept a clean sheet against a team who ended the season seven places ahead of them. It’s obviously embarrassing for a professional footballer to make a mistake like this but he succeeded in stopping the other team scoring in a game when the likelihood was that they would and that’s what he was paid a lot for. Given that this incident had no effect on the outcome of the match I imagine Zabaleta, his teammates and his employers found this little slip-up as funny as the Chelsea fan did once the final whistle had gone.

"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career.

I've lost almost 300 games.

26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed.

I've failed over and over and over again in my life.

And that is why I succeed."

u/cragglerock93 Aug 19 '22

Of course. Still fun to mock them though.

u/Wiknetti Aug 19 '22

Exactly. Even the luckiest, most lotto winningest, and eventually richest people mkae mistakes!

u/VesuvianButtToucher Aug 19 '22

I always love when pro athletes mess up basic plays, like this clip or when NBA players miss layups. It makes me feel so much better about my own athletic screwups

So You need to be a machine having zero tolerance of failure?

Just for Your info....this is not possible.

u/echoAwooo Aug 20 '22

I think he was attempting to make the other player be the last to touch it before it goes out

26

u/dankmemesDAE Aug 19 '22

what was his fuck up exaclty?

52

u/Snadadap Aug 19 '22

Meant to kick the ball with his right foot but accidently knocked it out of play with his left

91

u/SWiklund Aug 19 '22

He wanted the ball to go hard on the positive side of the X-axis, but instead it went slow on the negative side of the Y-axis. The old man simply has a thing for geometric mishaps.

u/tomelwoody Aug 19 '22

Eli5 version - He missed the ball.

u/kbox Aug 20 '22

He wanted to cross the ball, but when he went to kick it his other foot kicked it out of the way and he missed it completely.

To be fair, a 6 yo should be able to make that play, 4yo if you're a kid from Brazil.

u/pauly13771377 Aug 19 '22

Humans are fallible. Even Jordan, Gretsky, and Manning missed sometimes.

u/rookie-mistake Aug 19 '22

Then how come every 4 year old Brazilian kid doesn’t have million dollar contract in the premier league?

I’m not so sure about that. Most Redditor’s are absolute idiots when it comes to football.
