A Snafu, Shitshow And Clusterfuck, As Defined By Man City Vs. Chelsea
Get the best email in soccer.
Manchester City went top of the Premier League table on goal difference today, and what a sensational difference to the goals they made. And they did it against David Luiz’s Chelsea, no less.
6-0. +54 GD. That’s City.
I read something interesting from Quartz (I have no idea) about the differences between the words fuck-up, SNAFU, FUBAR, shitshow and clusterfuck. I figured it was clickbait, but it really was a sensational read.
I hope you feel the same about this.
Here are the connotative meanings of the words, as exemplified by Chelsea’s clusterfuckerish showing against Manchester City today.
A fuck-up: “Something all of us do every day.”
Ladies and gentlemen, Sergio Aguero with the consummate fuck-up.

A SNAFU: “Situation Normal, All Fucked Up” - fine, just fucked. normal life.
Again, I give you Sergio Aguero. This is when he remembers that he's got the City shirt on and not the Albiceleste.

A shitshow: “a situation or state of affairs characterized by chaos, confusion or incompetence.”

“FUBAR”: Fucked Up Beyond All Repair
Clusterfuck: “a bungled or confused undertaking or situation. Those debacles and disasters caused by a deadly brew of illusion, impatience and incompetence that afflicts too many decision-makers, especially those in powerful, confident and prestigious groups.”
Goal Sterling! That makes it SIX for Manchester City! pic.twitter.com/0hOnvGSrts
