Notes

i like the ambiguity here – opinions on who’s going to win the obvious one, but also, who’s dropped and who’s not, friends arriving too late / too early, difficulty on the journey, too long / not long enough in the pub, where to head after the game, etc, etc

why every other season? because every other year we have either the World Cup or the European Championships to keep us going through the summer! if we actually entered the Olympic football, it would be ‘one summer in 4’.
