When I left the UK I thought I had finally escaped all things football. No more having to endure a whole week of football forecasts on TV, followed by a weekend of matches and then a Sunday evening re-living the 'highlights' all over again. At last, I thought, I never have to hear the word … Continue reading Football Football Everywhere, Even in My Drink!
