The others' accents are awful. The writing is atrocious. Reply Sergiu says: July 3, 2019 at 10:42 am Football* Reply Mizuno Dori says: July 4, 2019 at 6:27 am "Yeah it's injured in it." Why do I find that so funny. Reply Francesco Monaldi says: July 9, 2019 at 3:59 pm If Idris wasn’t willing to do that they could have at least asked someone about football terminology and really just British slang and pronunciations. Hearing ‘Premiere League’, ‘defense’, ‘diaper’, ‘trade’, ‘field’ was cringe. Reply Brian Sounalath says: July 11, 2019 at 10:36 am english accents. horrid Reply Brian Sounalath says: July 11, 2019 at 10:39 am go ahead and "pop that beanie back on" Reply Fil Am says: July 18, 2019 at 3:31 am Great delivery, but predictable jokes… Reply M Chas says: July 18, 2019 at 5:55 am Awful Brit dialects. Reply John says: July 21, 2019 at 11:08 pm I'd smash that and her mom. Reply Maxym Habarov says: July 22, 2019 at 2:46 pm Awful accents! Reply kevin Garcia says: July 27, 2019 at 8:29 pm Now do one on AFTV Reply Chicken Permission says: July 27, 2019 at 9:19 pm They really couldn’t have picked a better person for this sketch! I love Idris SO much!! Reply Brett h says: July 29, 2019 at 1:28 am He doesn't strike me as dumb as much as an ass. Reply Tupdike says: July 29, 2019 at 7:57 pm While their accents went to shit after the first few lines, I was actually impressed that they correctly referred to Arsenal as "The Arsenal." I wonder if Idris educated them on that, seeing as how he's an Arsenal supporter Reply Fifthcell says: July 30, 2019 at 3:08 pm 1:41 what sound was that lmao Reply Dima Gass says: July 31, 2019 at 3:05 pm Just went to Manchester vs Chicago Fire on Saturday! Reply Prince Chibub says: August 2, 2019 at 1:26 pm The one qualm is that he said diaper instead of nappy Reply BlueAversion says: August 4, 2019 at 12:16 am 8 seconds in and can already tell this is Americans trying (and failing) to understand football. First, they call it soccer and they show the game as Man Utd v Arsenal and say Arsenal are at home. That isn't how the Premier League does it. Man Utd would be at home in that scenario. Reply PM's Far-Out Grooviness says: August 4, 2019 at 4:56 am I think it wasn't shown in tonight's rebroadcast Reply Rockets #1 says: August 6, 2019 at 3:10 pm David must have a hard time memorizing those lines. Reply Kyle Richards says: August 7, 2019 at 1:09 pm Monty python did this skit better 40 years ago Reply WTF John says: August 8, 2019 at 8:26 pm David’s keeping it real, to stupid to lie Reply Heinz Ketchup says: August 9, 2019 at 3:25 am Manchester United at Arsenal? Poor realism SNL! Reply Christopher Prince says: August 12, 2019 at 3:58 am Funny, but they needed an English consultant. It's "pitch," not "field." It's "transferred," not "traded." It's Arsenal "have" not Arsenal "has" and so on. Reply Warehouse TheWoodman says: August 15, 2019 at 11:15 am It feels a bit gay! Don’tcha miss when you were able to say what you really felt? Reply TheLegendAX 99 says: August 20, 2019 at 1:17 am Idris Elba and soccer? Why’d Jim duck? Reply 401topher says: August 22, 2019 at 4:44 am Idris looks like Donovan Mitchell in that wig Reply James Martin says: August 22, 2019 at 3:25 pm Reminds me of an old Python sketch. "I hit the ball in the goal Brian." Reply MusicalElitist1 says: August 23, 2019 at 10:19 am This is incredibly accurate! Reply Tyler Keller says: August 23, 2019 at 6:01 pm This is what drives me insane about soccer (ahem….. Excuse me, "Futbol") because everything that is usually the same in every other fucking sport, has to have a different name. It's not a uniform, it's a kit. It's not a field, it's a pitch. It's not a game, it's a match. I fucking HATE it. Not only all that, it's BOOOOOOOOOORING!!!!!! Let's watch two team (ahem, excuse me, "clubs") run back and forth for three hours to only have the fucking GAME end in a tie (if it's even called that 😒) Reply James Martin says: August 24, 2019 at 11:09 pm Kudos to the wig person. Reply Liliam Pumpernickel says: August 25, 2019 at 1:05 am Ksi Reply Kenneth Calden says: August 31, 2019 at 1:39 am 1:40 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Reply Jon Brooks says: September 1, 2019 at 9:09 am Finally a show that exposes how dumb soccer players are. I mean why wouldn't they be I mean you just kick the ball into the net. In the NFL u can't be that dumb. Comparing the two sports it's like the difference between playing Tic-Tac-Toe and playing chess. I can't even say Checkers because soccer can't even match up to that. I think soccer is a great game to teach young boys and girls in America as a great beginner's game to introduce into competition and to teach then sportsmanship. And I'm going to get a little bit older they could graduate to a more complicated sport like dodge ball. English people are slowly but surly learning. 4 nfl games are being played three sold out in 4 hrs. Cheerio to you all and God bless the queens the princes and the dukes of London. Reply 2 Chainz says: September 3, 2019 at 2:08 am Good bird, FAITHFUL Reply Slanted Frames Productions says: September 3, 2019 at 11:28 pm Manchester United at Arsenal, but the graphic clearly shows united as the home side Reply Tyler Durden says: September 4, 2019 at 11:46 am I liked this sketch better when Monty Python did it FIFTY YEARS AGO. Reply Arceus Lord of Creation says: September 5, 2019 at 3:55 am “You’re too small” …….to play Soccer??🤷♀️ Reply Giedrius Grudzinskas says: September 7, 2019 at 8:02 pm idris is down to earth bloke,I meet him years ago Reply Hot Gunner says: September 10, 2019 at 12:51 pm They actually got a lifelong Arsenal fan Idris Elba to be part on this! Arsenal for life! Reply XXXDeathByFartsXXX says: September 11, 2019 at 7:25 am Every time I see these two, I just see Don jr and Eric. Reply Hooman Vakil says: September 11, 2019 at 8:15 pm So no ones going to ask as to why "Manchester United vs Arsenal" was played at the "Emirates Stadium"? Reply Aaron Rock says: September 12, 2019 at 1:53 pm Decent British accents Reply D Pollard says: September 13, 2019 at 9:26 pm SNL sure has gone down hill over the years. Reply Stefan Schuette says: September 17, 2019 at 6:14 am It's a shame when Arsenal players get traded. Reply Nate Harris says: September 19, 2019 at 12:14 am First Reply Dual Shock says: September 21, 2019 at 10:59 am The shocked response only because Elba said "it feels gay", words can't describe how much I hate this oversensitive society, in the end it will be the death of comedy Reply Emily Replogle says: September 21, 2019 at 11:36 pm Feels a bit gay 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Reply Lisa says: September 24, 2019 at 4:56 pm Football and yet it’s still titled ‘soccer’ Reply Lisa says: September 24, 2019 at 5:00 pm ‘ Old man’s diaper’ if we being British here, it would be ‘nappy’ Reply Shonok Rohan says: September 26, 2019 at 10:30 pm david is british Chad Reply Ironninja1116’s old channel says: September 29, 2019 at 12:19 am don’t say that Reply Mateo Correa says: September 30, 2019 at 6:18 pm 😂 this skit is 10x funnier when you actually watch sky sports every week after watching prem games Reply patrick dwyer says: October 2, 2019 at 2:28 am Wow I forgot about pizza express I had to eat that on group trips to Europe it sucked Reply brodemonz says: October 3, 2019 at 1:47 pm This is stupid. Reply David Pumpkins Jr. says: October 4, 2019 at 5:23 pm We definitely need to see Idris Elba play more meat-headed lads. Reply Lidija Cullen says: October 6, 2019 at 10:58 pm Hey, did they use a sharpie?!? Reply Hamish Munroe says: October 7, 2019 at 4:04 am I keep clicking on SNL vids hoping they'll be funny. Not found one yet Reply MLC DJT says: October 7, 2019 at 6:52 am This is very accurate good one Idris! Reply Kion Kion says: October 7, 2019 at 8:43 am BEST ACTING SKIT EVER Reply Irokun says: October 7, 2019 at 9:45 pm Twinings sponsoring the player to watch 😂 Reply C Sellars says: October 8, 2019 at 10:34 am Clinton Morrison is that you? Reply Kevin Ferrari says: October 8, 2019 at 9:47 pm My team Arsenal mentioned on a skit on SNL!!!!!!!! WHAT THE ACTUAL FUUUUCK!!!!! LOOOOOVE it lol Reply Chibz92 says: October 9, 2019 at 3:43 am Is it me or does that dude sound like a mix of Ian Darke and Derek Rae? Reply Tony Marshall says: October 9, 2019 at 10:55 am The said premier the American way it’s prem—ee—air Reply Tommy OneTee says: October 9, 2019 at 4:59 pm terrible sketch. Reply A Hussein says: October 9, 2019 at 5:45 pm Loved it, hey idris is a gooner too Reply caracasaltavista says: October 10, 2019 at 3:12 am That's was great!! Reply VAP0R99 says: October 10, 2019 at 12:02 pm “I have to trade you” Haha who’s doing trades in the Premier? Reply DARTH JAR JAR says: October 10, 2019 at 1:24 pm Premeer league? Reply FighterCK says: October 10, 2019 at 2:56 pm I kinda feel that they used "trade" and "coach" instead of "transfer" and "manager" so that American audiences would understand the jokes without having to Google bc Idris certainly knew the correct terminology. Interestingly enough baseball uses the term "manager" instead of head coach as well so I always wonder why it's substituted when talking about this sport as though the concept is entirely foreign… Reply Sean Kennedy says: October 10, 2019 at 8:26 pm Exactly what it's like now with Keane sounness and mourinho on all together 😂 Reply mack mcentire says: October 11, 2019 at 12:23 am Hahaha great Reply mack mcentire says: October 11, 2019 at 12:23 am …..yea I’d smash that too Reply Dan Jones says: October 11, 2019 at 12:29 am Couple of phrases Brits wouldn't say such as "trade you" would be "sell you" and "old man's diaper" would be "old man's nappy". I do understand that's it for American audiences though… Other than those phrases, it's pretty much spot on! Reply Andrew Bloy says: October 11, 2019 at 12:56 am Wow, Idris Elba does a great Rio Ferdinand impression here. Maybe a little too coherent though Reply Philip Light says: October 11, 2019 at 4:17 pm “Man United of course, quite a tough squad to beat” Me: Lol ok Reply Andrés González says: October 11, 2019 at 8:55 pm It’s funny that Americans think the whole world orders their teams as visitor and home. Here it would be Arsenal visiting Manchester United. . . Reply Alex Odusanya says: October 11, 2019 at 10:50 pm The funniest joke in this sketch is that a black footballer would actually have a black wife Reply Jeri Lee says: October 12, 2019 at 5:45 am This is kind of a reworking of he Celebrity Jeopardy skits where the celeb is an idiot and Sean Connery keeps saying dirty old man things to Alex Trebek.😂 Reply Hannah Hassall says: October 12, 2019 at 7:27 am the only thing that was inaccurate was the word 'announcing'. us brits say 'commentating' Reply FbaGaming says: October 12, 2019 at 8:58 am What commentator would say trade? Reply Jay Torr says: October 12, 2019 at 10:11 am I think there isn't anything that the snl actors like more than doing British accents. Reply Rufus 45 says: October 13, 2019 at 8:31 am You can’t trade people and it’s called the manager not the coach Reply Kapa Pi says: October 14, 2019 at 9:25 pm The best video ever! Reply Luke Bannon says: October 14, 2019 at 11:12 pm Ouch they said preMIER instead of PREMier. Reply Vasco Apolonio says: October 16, 2019 at 1:32 am David got a small knob for a black bloke, but thats ok , i guess she loves him for real…so, good man David, good man… Reply Cianisboss says: October 16, 2019 at 1:55 pm This is terrible. We don't say at for the home team and we don't have injury reports like the NFL Reply Jon Crowe says: October 17, 2019 at 8:05 am Idris Elba is an Arsenal fan, isn't he? Reply Twitting On Trender says: October 17, 2019 at 11:31 am "Manchester United at Arsenal". We don't say that here. Home side comes first. Reply Aaron Tolbert says: October 17, 2019 at 11:34 am That guy sounds like KSI Reply Aziz Raza says: October 17, 2019 at 2:31 pm Don't say that 😂 Reply Bingo says: October 19, 2019 at 9:39 pm Prem ear league football Reply Angel Canez says: October 20, 2019 at 12:32 am Good for him man. LoL Reply Ross says: October 21, 2019 at 4:03 pm Did they say emirates Reply trufiend138 says: October 21, 2019 at 10:28 pm I don’t think he’s dumb. He just has no filter or pretense. And he’s not mean spirited nor sarcastic. Refreshing!! 🍹🍹🍹 Reply Dangrg says: October 22, 2019 at 4:34 am I'd smash that Reply Lokesh Jyotula says: October 22, 2019 at 7:41 am C'mon Reply ga11ythegreat says: October 22, 2019 at 10:17 am Well this was painful to watch like most SNL sketches. Ted lasso number one at bringing the football's together Reply KingDomofSkeough says: October 22, 2019 at 4:02 pm Just a note that's not how English people say "defence" or "Premier" Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
