So the football season is in full swing, but, as always, where there's football, there's nonsense.

Bookmaker Blue Square Bet has decided to take action with the launch of the Blue Square Bet Nonsense 101, a Virtual Room 101 where fans get the chance to dispose of all the nonsense in football.

Every week on a Monday morning Blue Square Bet is asking football fans across the UK to tell them what they've seen that is just nonsense by tweeting suggestions to @bluesq using the hashtag #nonsenseinfootball. The best ones will be featured on the Blue Square Bet Twitter, Facebook page and website every Friday ahead of the weekend's action.

The best (or worst) bit of nonsense will win a £50 free bet with five runners-up winning a £10 free bet each.

Nonsense highlights so far include:

@Van_Der_Yes tweeted this typical bit of nonsense from the opening day of the Premier League: "Clint Dempsey sitting out his side's 5-0 win while Liverpool lose 3-0!"
@kklindemans - Stoke fans booing Aaron Ramsey for having the cheek to get his leg broke in two places by one of their players #NonsenseInFootball"
@ItsRouteOne - "#NonsenseInFootball Gael Clichy's new haircut. Utterly terrible lid"

Blue Square Bet brand director Robert May said: "We love football but there's far too much nonsense in the game - we want fans to help us get rid of it and will reward the best, or worst, submissions, with free bets. By the end of the season we should have a real treasure trove of nonsense that we can dispose of for good".
