A week, they say, is a long time in football. Meanwhile, it's imperative to keep it tight for that crucial first twenty minutes. And it only takes a second to score a goal. This unusually philosophical approach to timekeeping does not apply to the moment that the fourth official's board goes up to display (sorry, "indicate") how much time is to be added on.
Fans of a team who are clinging on to a lead expect at least three minutes of injury time. Four minutes? Makes sense.
But FIVE?! WHERE DID HE GET FIVE MINUTES FROM?! BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
