    It's not an idiom either.

    Is it Robert De Niro's 'You talkin’ to me?' scene from Taxi Driver?

    'You talkin’ to me?' is correct, Muizer has the ground.

    It seems I'll be in debt to you for one rep point for a while as I have not "replenished" since your Apollo Hylates guess.

    Well, both of my previous attempts could be correct under these two pictures.

    Is it related to soccer or sports in general?

    The phrase is not related to sports, though I'm sure it's been used to qualify some decisions made by referees!

    English of course. Ok, I'll give a hint. It matters who are in the second pic.

    Is it a true catchphrase, or something proverbial?

    It's similar to the last answer, a frequently used phrase...

    Flying caesar is my guess.
    English is not my native language so I looked it up in the urban dictionary.
    Turns out the meaning of the phrase is rather risqué (especially for a girl).

    Nope - I'd not heard of that... and now wish I hadn't googled

    the 'who' in the 2nd picture isn't relevant for this one

    Didn't think it was. It's to do with economics, isn't it?
