After Barnsley

Writing about web page

Article for CCFCUK.NET 8th March 2008 "A Cup shock for your team makes you grow as a supporter. Its part of growing up, like the first failed relationship or your first realisation that you will never play for Chelsea. Although hope springs eternal, success can not come every week, I’d argue that every member of the football watching public needs to go through a Cup shock. "

    I had quite a bad experience as far as this was concerned. I’m trying to think how to say this without disclosing peoples identities….someone was telling me and a few others about his plans to watch the Chelsea v Manchester United match. He had planned it all out very elaborately and was going to be ready in front of the screen with lots of snacks and beer to hand about an hour before the game started. He’s an avid Chelsea fan and was so excited about the match. I told him that my son supported Manchester United and he said “does he want hitting.” There was just something about the way he looked at me when he said it that made me think he was only partly joking. I didn’t see him until the following week and I made sure I didn’t mention anything about the football. I can’t understand why people take it so seriously.

  2. Football is that sort of thing. There is an article about it in the Times yesterday about how football is treated so differently by its fans compared to tennis, motor racing e.t.c

    I didn’t see that article because I don’t get the Times in the week. But I told my son about it and he just laughed it off. He doesn’t drink beer when he watches football because he doesn’t need alcohol to enjoy himself, he’s much more mature than the man I was talking about although he is younger.
