Yes, its called supporting Spursey. Except there is no hate involved - just a general feeling of resignation about what will happen, interspersed with all-too brief periods of elation (like when we win a corner for example or actually have a shot on goal) but even then knowing that it'll all end in tears and sans trophies.


There is hope for your condition. See Philadelphia sports fan disease.

can remember following Spurs at away matches when I lived in Lancaster (so tended to see them more away in N England) in the dire period of the mid-90s, it was such a relief when they were defending the goal at the opposite end of the match. At least the chaos and incompetence that passed for a defense was partly hidden by distance . Some of those games, getting a throw-in in the opposition half was one of the high points.

When you've been supporting Spurs this long you can write the script. Sadly I predicted 1-2 after we score first.

Why can't I be right when I predict the lottery numbers?

I hate stoopid football.

The football season is close to begin. Lots of snow, but now days the pitches are usually decent or made out of plastic so the fear of mud filled pitches for the first few matches are almost gone. So I eagerly await the first few matches with hope that it will not be the usual disastrous start of the season.

Thank you for sharing.

Although I do not see any fun angle here. Sad, maybe.

Perhaps one will permit me to make the case for an opposite - though appropriately considered - viewpoint?

Football is a cobblers game .

Did you miss the original story one month ago?

A we wuz robbed parody. And this is how they (or he, the owner of the club, as per the original) committed robbery.

Besides, maybe you don't know I was talking about a match, played the day before. Real Madrid vs Juventus. Champions League.

The owner is invading the pitch with a gun to convince the referee that was indeed a penalty. He better admits it... or else.

First time I saw the picture I could not find the gun. I'm pretty sure any random American finds it pretty quickly

Nah, many are predicting doom and chaos but I suspect uncle Vlad will not allow the hooliganesque clowns to destroy his World Cup. And besides, he's got huge and empty Siberia. Winters are lovely, I hope the drunk hooligans [both the native Spetsnaz type and the foreign bald and fat type aka western spionen] thoroughly enjoy it

No, I didn't miss the original story.

I just failed to see the comedy in it.

Thank you for explaining it.

It is unfair... all that years of hard work training in Siberia killing bears in hand to claw combats and vodka VS vodka fights wasted... even i invest in diaper/nappy companies thinking in our brave "hooligans without borders" to dont irritate their skin

I think we are going to miss the best part of the World Cup, if in South Africa were bubuzelas the rusian hooligan VS spetsnatz for me be the "exotic" touch the competition needs

But we talk about the sport of gentlemen... well, in Rusia is the sport of gentleBear at least in rusian 3rd division i really pay to see a Rusia VS Germany match with that opening for the game

You mean football. I hope you're wrong. As long as bus parking trolling is absent it'll be ok.

Do you usually accuse without proof? I mean, witnesses, documents. But if you know someone will be committing a crime, go to your nearest police station and show them your proof.

Either you have that proof or you're Nostradamus.

Is that a joke or something?
