Because one of the best things about been Irish in supporting an English football club, those who don't support an English team are missing out, I'm gratefull for the hundredths of hours of entertainment my English club have given me. No musician, tv series, film series or writer have given me as much joy. More importantly the love of my club has given me a hobby I can talk to thousands of people about. Football is a global game and an entertainment product, those people who think you can only support your local team are very sad and closed minded individuals
"One of the best things about being Irish is you get to pretend to be English for 90 minutes a week, sometimes even 180 or 270"
