Lots of characters, fallouts, amazing stories. There is a continuity in all that that lots of fans enjoy.
Sure it’s not rational or productive but everyone deserves a little escapism after a hard week. My missus watches all sorts of dross such as love island and the kardashians but fair play to her. If you are getting upset because you can’t hack your boyfriend/husband spending a couple hours on a Saturday afternoon without giving you his undivided attention then you have a big problem.
As a caveat to the above: obviously if your fella is completely ignoring you and spending hours on end watching football he needs to sort himself out.
Another thing while I’m making a list: people are perfectly entitled to choose a team to support regardless of where they live. There seems to be quite a few people who have an issue with this for some reason.
Football, fantasy football, love island, the Kardashian’s, “my missus”. Sounds like you’re made for one another.
So why did you decide to support a UK team rather than say Shamrock Rovers or was it just whatever marketing ploy or football jersey that was in fashion that year?
