Football crap talk















A question that has perplexed me eternally: why (in football terms) is a left-foot cultured or educated? For the linguists amongst you, does this exist in other languages?

Comments:
Wasn't Carlton Palmer right footed? Guilt by association methinks...
 
Mentioned again in the Guardian today, re Gareth Bale.

I did a Google search.
"Cultured left foot" - 11,900 results
"Cultured right foot" - 99 results
