Happy for you mate.
Personally I’d rather sit down and listen to Christian rock music.
Never had you marked down as a Cliff Richard fan Tone.
Just out of curiosity, Why? Surely iy's the actual game that we enjoy watching isn't it ? I get that some people miss the buzz of actually being at a match but I don't get why someone who enjoys watching the game wouldn't watch it because there's no one in the stadium.
“Surely”? Not for me.
I’ll pay to watch a sporting spectacle but for me this has to be the whole package. The crowd are an integral part of that.
On a good day they can lift their team, fluster the opposition, influence the officials but most importantly provide the game with its soul and spirit.
On a bad day where the football is gash, the crowd can add some badly needed energy.
I’m not an avid scrutiniser of the game. I like to watch but don’t analyse so for me just the game on its own is of little interest.
You’d be surprised how many people like me love football but not just the “game” itself.
For me, “football” encompasses everything. Purely on its own it’s a dire, soulless affair devoid of spirit and energy.
Especially in those large stadia where the echos only serve to exaggerate the emptiness.
Edit: Cliff is quite possibly the most nauseating human being I’ve never seen.
I exaggerate of course when I say I’d prefer to listen to Christian rock music. But it’s a close-run thing......
