...get obsessed about big international competitions where England is playing.
I think club football is as boring as it gets. There's no loyalty, money dominates, and there tends to be a Premier league or FA cup competition every few months or so.
But when England is playing in a big international tournament, it changes. Suddenly, loyalty plays a factor. The players are there because they were born in that country and identify with it, not because of the sniff of dollar. And it only happens every 2 years, making each event special and something to be savoured and treasured.
Anyone else get really psyched about big international football but couldn't care less about the game normally?
I don't like football but... Watch

Yeah, seeing England flags outside people's houses makes me want to watch it, even though I generally don't find football interesting.

It's people like you that are the reason why hooligans are letting loose in Marseille. Patriotism gone too far.Last edited by multieman; 11-06-2016 at 20:40.

Yeah, I don't care about teams, they don't "represent" me as such... But when England plays, I'm interested
