    to be a man short

    Dear all,

    In a newspaper I read:

    "You can't win the game if you're a man short."

    What does it exactly mean?

    Thank you.

    Welcome to the forums.
    It means that you can't win if one of your players is missing. For example, if a player is sent off in a football match, his team is a man short.
