I took a machine that was practically on fire and got it running again despite problem after problem (it's ubuntu on an older box that grub doesn't like - and running win10 with visual studio in a virtual machine)
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
"Soccer" came from Oxford University students, shortening "association football". They also came up with "Rugger", shortening "rubgy football".
Given both words came from what most normal Brits deem(ed) a snobbish institution in a period where association football was considered the "working men's game", it is not much of a surprise that it never caught on in the minds of the impoverished British labourers of the past.
Even "Rugger" is rarely, if ever, used now - it is also widely considered a "toff" word..
