Thread: I have decided to stop identifying as a football fan.

  1. #1

    I have decided to stop identifying as a football fan.

    When people talk to me about football, I shall simply look blankly at them, then smile and say 'I'm sorry, I don't really follow football' and then change the subject. No more football banter, no more painful conversations with Tottenham supporters and no more feeling duty bound to defend the Arsenal when they're slagged off by supporters of other teams.

    Just think how liberating it will be!

    well, yes, but you'll have to take up politics or the like so something else can become the target of your loathing

    How would we notice the difference?

    It's impossible for me to do that. When asked, I just say, "Yes Arsenal are abysmal at the moment." It takes the wind right of our anybody's sails, especially when they see how little I really care about the fact.

    Not sure why you need to - all you need to do is tell them the truth. You loathe European football and couldn't care less how Arsenal do.

    They would naturally assume that you therefore don't care how Spurs do on Saturday night.

    That's the spirit! Chin up, stiff upper lip and all that.

    Bless your heart, but I’ve known you almost 20 years, and of all your qualities, good or and, you have never been any5hingclose to being a football fan. In 2004 you were bitching about how **** Thierry Henry was, for all love. No, stickball is you4 thing, and that’s fine.

    Did he ever stand four square on the old North Bank like us c, repelling the invading Irons with his bare fists? I very much doubt it.
