16 of the funniest and most ridiculous comments on football YouTube videos

If you’re looking for insightful debate, you would be more than a little foolish to head to the comments section on YouTube videos.

However, if you’re looking for utterly baffling arguments, half-baked conspiracy theories and your uncle knobhead after a few too many drinks, the comments section on YouTube is exactly where you need to go.

It’s often forgotten that football itself is pretty ridiculous, so it only seemed right to put the two together and dive straight into the comments on the beautiful game.

To be quite honest, we sort of nabbed this idea from The Move mag – which is excellent and you should buy – but while they got to scrawl through entertaining stories about coming up to great music, we mostly had to rrawl through lads arguing about Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Thankfully, there were some moments of gold, so we’ve picked out 16 of our favourite comments below the line.
