Well done.  I approve.  I still expected it to be more wordy, but it'll have to do.

Non-contact nature of tackling
Unlikeable players
Wong people in charge at the top
No beers on the terraces
No terraces
Cost (commercialisation in general)
The drift away from it being a working mans sport (not that i remember it, but I'd like it to be a little less 'replica shirt, family day out)
Franchise
Train prices for away days (or in general, it's just silly money)
Billionaire owners
Curbing goal celebrations
Music after goals
Seeing an empty Saturday schedule in the top league for TV purposes
Aiming to finish 4th to qualify for the CL
Wembley

All of the above.

And particularly what Ardiles mentioned - players treating the ref like a piece of shit on their luminous pink/green/orange boot.

It's not Bosnian football

Best bit is at 6.04 when they score.

The speed and ease with which a manager can go from being seen as a tactically astute, well-loved and successful manager amongst a set of supporters to being seen as inept and clueless by the same set of people in the space of 10 games or less.

Also, the refusal amongst pundits and fans to acknowledge that luck and elements of randomness frequently have as much of an impact on results as skill, tactics and ability.
