Went last night.
It was cold.
Football was cack.
But for me, it’s not about what happens on the pitch anymore.
I go with my 6 year old boy. Going to the game is ‘our thing’. Something we do together, to spend some quality time together.
After last night’s game, I asked him if he wanted to stop coming and do something else instead.
His answer was ‘no daddy, I like coming to football with you’
That alone is the reason I go. My boy is happy, I’m happy.
Does anyone actually go to watch the match anymore?
It’s more of a social event that just happens to involve a football match.
