is this the new champions league thread or something
Love football, I’ll never top that feeling when my team won Friendly Match 2014
This glorious summer when I thought it might come home (not even on premiership book)
I can’t believe it. Top of the league with three games to go.
does goal line technology work or doesn’t it?
which replay are we supposed to believe? this was supposed to be a flawless system.
The Beautiful Game
Isn’t it? Hmmm?
really wish the word TWAT had been slipped in by accident
I’ve stopped telling new people i meet in real life that i like football. Say i like a bit of everything “cricket, rugby league, etc”. Conversation-ender nine times out of ten. Fucking brilliant. Immediately takes away 80% of chit-chat.
If people press me i mention something about non-leagues or the Portuguese league being underrated and they glaze over and never bother again.
Highly recommended life strategy, if a bit Conservative.
Find myself really struggling with football atm…although I realise this is primarily down to not paying for a subscription channel/not finding the time to sit down and watch a dodgy stream.
I think, because of that, I have a warped perspective of the ins and outs of football…and see things mostly through the media frame…which tends to sensationalise boring stuff and ignore the genuinely interesting human element of football. I should probably check out a local non-league team…but it might feel like a betrayal of my (sort of) beloved York City.
Similarly to @bugduv…I also leave out football when making small talk…unless it’s a very awkward scenario with other guys who I can’t just walk away from (weddings, for example)
I probably spend more time reading about football or listening to people talk about football than I spend watching football. Probably watch a game every other week. Unless it’s the WC, then I’m watching as much as possible.
