Now that the so called Festival of Football is about to start,  and boy Sky will be hyping this up for the next six weeks,  how much of the PL will you be watching? And what other activities could you be engaged in instead that might be more enjoyable. Walking the dog perhaps,  learning to cut your own hair, or getting around to that paint job in the house that you have put off , and then watching it dry. ?

Actually I'm being a bit facetious,  I don't mind it, I voted for option 3.

I would rather cut my toes off with a butter knife.

Is that a consequence of following Villa ?

Season will be abandoned 

I've given up all hope of UK rugby this year. 6 months to the friendlies starting again.

In the meantime I might watch the reds get licked week after week.... 

Barnsley partick and fev...... what a bloody trio!!?

Each to his own, but I only watch rugby league. No other sport has any interest for me, no idea why, just don't get any enjoyment out of watching other sports.

However, due to the tidal wave of coverage that we get for football via tv, newspapers and the interweb, I seem to know which football teams play in which colours, where they play, their managers and lots of their players even though I never sought out any information about them. You can't get away from it.

Jam Eater  1.(noun. jam eeter) A Resident of Whitehaven or Workington. Offensive.  It is now a term of abuse that both towns of West Cumbria use for each other especially at Workington/Whitehaven rugby league derby matches.

I've been to LeMans for the 24 hour race a few times and there's something quite visceral about being either at Arnage corner or in the grandstand at 1 or 2 in the morning as a 5litre Corvette V8 goes hurtling through, the sound is almost at the pain level, the ceramic disc brakes glow bright red as they go into the corner and the exhaust spits flame like it's on afterburner.

 

You don't get that at any football match

Yeah, sadly been gone a while that.

I think Belle Vue is the nearest one to me now 

My Grandad used to visit the Bolton track a lot in the 1970s and help care for the dogs.

I didn’t know Belle Vue was going, that’s really sad.

Had quite a few laughs there on works nights out.

Cheap and cheerful!

If I’m watching , apart from the mighty toffees , it’s more likely to be a championship match . I prefer those , it’s very competitive with lots of teams with stuff to play for . And play offs , I like them

Due to lockdown I’ve walked the dog to death,my hairdressing skills are so refined I’m being head hunted by Vidal Sassoon (this reference may be out of date) and the house looks like the queens about to make a visit. So I might as well put the football on.
