If you are crazy enough to want to watch a bit of live football, you are in luck!

All you need to do is get a plane to Nicaragua in Central America. I am not even sure if you’ll find an airline willing to fly you there at the moment.

I remember some years ago, after a summer without football, I caught the bus to Bitton to watch their local side play Bristol Manor Farm, as neither Leeds nor Bath City had a game.

I would imagine travelling from Bath to Bitton is a tad easier than Bath to Nicaragua.

If you’re still desperate and you can’t fly, you’ll just have to swim to Central America. Just watch out for big, plastic sharks.

Nicaragua is one of just three countries in the world, who are, unbelievably, continuing with their domestic football season.

If you’re interested, at the time of writing this blog post, Chinandega are playing Juventus Managua. Chinandega lead 2-0 after 50 minutes.


According to an interesting article on The Guardian website, the reason why football is allowed to continue is because the country’s president, Daniel Ortega, says it can.

The article is well worth a read, if only to discover a president who makes Donald Trump sound half human.

I’m sure after reading all of that, you’re all making plans to travel to Nicaragus. In case you need directions, it is stuck between Honduras and Costa Rica.

While you’re in the area, why not pop along to Panama, where you’ll be able to see where David Cameron’s father kept his bank account. I’ll warn you, it isn’t a branch of Lloyd’s or Nat West…

    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.
