Sean's Stories

This football season is going to kill me…

The battle between Leeds and Sheffield United, for second place and promotion, seems to be becoming more intense with each game.

Every time Leeds appear to have blown any chance of promotion, Sheffield respond a few days later, by messing up themselves and thus giving advantage back to Leeds.

It has got to the stage where I dread match days. I hate them. Far from the “entertainment”, football is meant to be, it is one of the most stressful experiences I have had to deal with – and I have had more than my share of stress in my life!

Such are my anxiety levels whenever Leeds or Sheffield United play, that I have taken to turning off the television and closing all mobile apps, capable of displaying the latest score.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
