Is “Respect The Point” the most annoying phrase on Earth?

Fed up of hearing this phrase to make draws that should have been comfortable wins sound acceptable. Newcastle, Everton, West Ham, Bournemouth, BHA, WBA - all dropped points. Hearing bores trot this out on the BBS and Twitter is beginning to annoy me.

Just because Pardew screwed up against Burnley and Swansea last season, and BFS popularised this phrase in an early interview, we seem to think our many draws this season we should have easily won are a good thing.

It’s a vapid cliche. Even the club are getting players to tweet it. It’s meaningless.

We must stop trotting out “respect the point” as though it’s a positive.

Get my point?

Yeah i respect the point you're making.

Draws won't be enough and we now we have a rough run of fixtures, should have picked up more points in those games.

Good point It is very annoying. 'Respecting' a point only works in games you are no expected to win, so you close the game out. Drawing with relegation rivals in our last 2 games can only be seen as 4 points dropped

If you want to do a tw*t audit just search Twitter for “respect the point” to see who’s not got an opinion of their own

Agreed, but there comes a point in the game when the focus needed to be not giving away two points to a relegation rival that we are above.

It's second to "deserved a point" when we walk away with zero.
