Although moaning & complaining is second nature to most British football fans, I thought I would start a thread about the things we love about the sport. How about a little optimism?
"...scores when he wants" chant and all variations thereof (never gets old)
Kits with collars
Things you LOVE about football
Hot girls in the crowd
Watching grown men cry.
Last minute goals.
.. except when they are scored by City.
That moment when everyone in the room shouts 'ball' in appreciation of a good pass.
Relating to football in general:
The English league system set-up
Non League football
Five Live commentary
Sports Report and James Alexander Gordon
Fantasy football banter
Relating to quirks of attending matches:
Traditional grounds and new grounds built in the traditional style (Goodison Park, Stamford Bridge respectively)
The variation among grounds visited
Excitement when travelling to and from away games
Atmosphere at away games
Being allowed to stand
Good pubs in towns
Sloop John B chants
Relating to Tottenham:
Benoît Assou-Ekotto: can't explain my love for this man in English
Steffen Freund: for outdoing being "not very good" ten times over with his pure passion and love for the club
Ledley King: how loyalty to a team really should be
Goals being scored in the Park Lane end
The feel-good walk back down the High Road when we've just won and the weather isn't freezing cold
Derbies, above all against Arsenal but also Chelsea and West Ham
Cut price tickets and practically free loyalty points for cup games
The loyal feeling on "Thursday night, Channel 5" games on actually turning up and not caring because it's Tottenham
Our special all white Euro kit
Will think of more
Seeing one of our many academy products go on to become great footballers. Usually for another team.
unpredictability of it. underdogs etc
Edit: Actually I think we might have had Sol too. For a year or so before he went to Spurs :P. But it was only a year so you can have that one.
Boss celebration let offs.
Daniel aggers goal v Chelsea in the CL sent me down 7 rows on the kop.
Can't beat a boss let off with ya mates/
Celebrations- especially when unique
Quality Goals/Exciting games
Mario Balotelli and other loveable nutcases
Watching with friends
Hilarious songs that the crowd sing
When commentators try desperately to ignore people in the crowd blatantly shouting 'Cnt' and 'Fck'
The emotion! Rene's cartwheels are one of the wonders of the world!
FIFA's , UEFA's and the FA's decision making!
The genius from Sky Sports that came up with the “interactive red button service” on Champions League nights allowing you flick between 15 matches (and possible flick over to ITV for the one remaining game) over two nights!
Funny football chants
Long range shots that end in goals
Dramatic events like turning from 2-0 to 5-2 (wink, wink) or missing/scoring goals at the last minute
French national team of 1998
atmosphere of big matches
International tournaments as that usually means sitting comfortably on the couch for a month long of football everyday
Oh how I love football
Away days, not knowing where you are but walking into an unknown pub you've been text about and finding it full of West Ham
Travelling with mates on the train
Falling over chairs celebrating
