Analysis-by-body-language is a really irritating modern trait. Football has never been more widely debated than it is right now, but that mass participation appears to have lent minor aspects of the game undue importance. Like pundits being antagonised by half-time shirt-swapping and Jamie Carragher becoming irate over David Luiz’s social media habits, this is just another instance in which the community tries to amplify something innocuous into greater significance.
This is so great.
