Learning about soccer – soccer clichés

I stumbled across this video in an older BBC Ideas e-mail I hadn’t yet deleted (and needless to say, finding it now isn’t gonna do much to encourage me to clean up my e-mails any time soon!)

One of the best lines in this video – in fact the whole reason I’m sharing it – is this:

Paranoia and pessimism are, after all, central to the enjoyment of football.

It’s always a bit tense watching a game with my dad but also lots of fun too. Game 1, Spurs v. Aston Villa is today!

And of course there’s a book! But it’s not out until September 2019. Sooooo soon…
