Enjoying or hating the no football era?

by Fox Talbot » 19 Mar 2020 17:06

Quite enjoying it so far.

But realising how much I relied on TV football for my end-of-day excitement :oops: .

And how often I logged on to HNA. However, now it's a case of "one thread, you've only got one thread".

For the time being I'm avoiding live football substitutes like re-runs of old matches, old DVDs / videos, anything on Sky / BT.

Will crack tomorrow as Netflix are showing a re-enactment of the epoch-marking 1883 FA Cup Final featuring those Berkshire-ish boys, the Old Etonians.

Should send Sandman into a frenzy.

Definitely missing Reading playing but not missing incessant wall to wall tv coverage.

Not sure what that dig is about but wish you no harm and hope you stay safe.

Far more important things and people in life to worry about than football and there is a lot to worry about right now.

Oh, just a little friendly dig re your views on the value of the FA Cup. Keep well.

yes, but apart from that


Think of the injuries that will have time to recover

Genuine question...are teams still covertly (or not) training?

Football is pretty low down my list of concerns at the best of times.

At these, shall we say "sub-optimal" times that remains the case. That said, glad I got in the trip to Brum before the shutdown.

I mate of mine generally takes the last 2-3 weeks off in March, and spends his time going to non-league football up and down the country.

I can't imagine he's too chuffed currently.

I love watching Reading and England play, don't really care about watching other football. If I don't have emotional investment, football isn't that interesting for me.
