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.

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.
