"Hendon began the second half as they left off, immediately penetrating the Enfield half like an ocelot pouncing on a lizard." Enfield match report by Bryan Roberts.

Both amused and baffled. I wonder about "screws being loose" - hee, hee.

This is the only video I've found

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bEEwzNA7SzU

where the lizard (Enfield) lounges around and the ocelot (Hendon) runs around in circles before finally pouncing.

Pouncing ocelots

I think I will copyright Pouncing Ocelots and take any band/pop group/beat combo for trillions of pesos when they perform under that name.

Very disappointed that the link didn’t show the kill.

I love the metaphors – in moderation – i.e. one per report. I have been doing it for years, but now they are hidden and are usually puns based on the club’s nickname or location – often in my headlines, Bognor on the Rocks, Greens give Billericay the Blues, Hendon get Stoned and Hendon Coast Through (that would be Leiston)
