Lunchtime at work today I started talking to some girl about the England national team, their chances, the players and all the kind of stuff I would normally only find myself talking to a fellow bloke about. She knew her stuff and I was impressed. The stereotypical image of a female knowing bugger all about footy and only paying attention when Beckham takes his shirt off is a myth. Well kind of…

The conversation went onto the topic of Steven Gerrard and how he was quite possibly England’s best player. Another female hovering about making a coffee then entered the debate… “Oooh! Stevie’s soooo cute!”. The girl I was talking to replied “Sol Campbell is the sexist footballer ever. He’s such a hunk but is really very gentle”.

*sigh*, that’s one way to end the chat for me. It was a nice football debate while it lasted.


Strong, reliable centre half… also a gentle hunk???

I’ve also entered another Fantasy Football online game, this time on the Metro website. Somebody in the office has created a departmental league on the site which all the football fans are submitting their teams into. £5 to enter, winner takes 75% of the pot, runner up 25%. Better than a sweepstake in my opinion. The problem with a sweepstake is that no skill or knowledge is involved. The football fanatic could easily pick out Togo while the one who hates the sport could easily get Brazil.

Here’s my team…

  • 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.
