Polacked?

Post by Beefstar » Wed Nov 28, 2012 10:36 pm

so i was just watching the chelsea - fulham game on tv. and one of the british announcers every time a player fell down and made more of an injury or foul, would say the guy was "polacked" (not sure the spelling, maybe "polaked. pronounced poh-lacked)

never heard of this term. anyone from england care to explain? does it have anything to do with polish people? i'm perplexed.

I think you mean "pillock" or "pillocked'.

Its a British slang for an annoying person or a stupid person etc...

poleaxed, past participle; poleaxed, past tense; poleaxes, 3rd person singular present; poleaxing, present participle

Hit, kill, or knock down with or as if with a poleax

Cause great shock to (someone)

HIGHLY doubt they would be talking about Polish players. Our boy Lewy hasn't made it to Man U quite yet :lol:

it's possible. the guy had a thick british accent which might have skewed the pronunciation towards 'polack'
