Football fans are mad

Took me a while to work that one out, but when I did it was a revelation. Why do I want to go sit in a noisy bar, where I can’t actuwlly have a decent conversation, spend about £50 in beer, £20 on the taxi home, and £20 on a babysitter, and look forward to a banging hangover in the morning, when I can stay at home, cook a nice meal, work my way through a couple of bottles of wine, watch a movie with the wife, and the whole evenings cost me about a tenner. 

I am an armchair goer outer. 

Took me a while but i found the answer to your question eventually... It's probably the wife bit.

Visiting Hull twice a week should only happen if I'm having a weekend in Rotterdam

Same for us this year against Hull. Ok it’s not as far but to visit Hull twice in a week deserves some kind of award.

I've been to Hull. And I'd say, even if you live in Hull you deserve an award if you visit that place twice. City of Culture my a***

Been out earlier walking the dog, it was freezing cold, wet, windy and downright miserable. I've just read that Fleetwopd took 40 fans to AFC Wimbledon tonight. They won 3-0 so I'm really chuffed for them but wtf makes people travel vast distances in horrendous weather conditions getting home at silly o'clock having spent a fair few quid for the pleasure?

Walsall were away at Plymouth Argyle as well, no idea how many went, but if they did, they all deserve a medal, or sectioning.....🤣

A Bill Shankly quote springs to mind...

I'm guessing the wine is all top notch stuff then....

Just to clarify. I’m talking about Tesco’s 2 dine in for a tenner (or has that gone up). And there’s usually a second bottle of wine roujdnthe house somewhere. Fair enough, if I have to be pushing for a second bottle of wine, it might be twenty. But then my wife is more likely to pay her share then. So for me it’s only a tenner. When I’m out, it’s me being the gentleman and buying all the rounds.

Nowt wrong with Hull. About the only place in England as scruffy as Derby, but (red) salt of the earth folk, plus it was still £1 a pint in some places, and never more than £2 on my last visit a couple of years ago.

You haven’t been to Hull. If you think you have you haven’t, they lied. You was probably in Scarborough or somewhere.

Wasn't it Exeter and Carlisle who played each other last game of the season the other year, and then immediately met again in the 2-legged play off semi? That's some proper travelling for the hardcore fan

Just looked it up, your memory is better than mine. I plead old-age. It must have seemed a very long journey back for the Carlisle fans. 12 hour 700 mile round trip. From Exeter's website:

The 2016/17 campaign would see the Grecians have a difficult start as they sat rock bottom of the league in November 2016 with key players missing out through injury. But, in an incredible season, City managed to climb the table with a stellar end to the season and eventually finished in fifth place, claiming a play-off place.

They were drawn against Carlisle United in the semi-finals, and yet again, Tisdale and his players produced a quite remarkable occasion. The Grecians travelled to Cumbria for the first leg and found themselves 3-1 up at Brunton Park before the home side levelled to set up an exciting night at St James Park for the second leg.

And what a night it turned out to be as the Grecians raced to a 2-0 (5-3 agg) lead on the night with two goals from academy graduate Ollie Watkins. But, in a crazy 10-minute spell, the Cumbrians fought back to level the score on the night to 2-2 (5-5 agg) after goals from Jason Kennedy and John O'Sullivan. As the match crept into the fifth minute of injury time, up popped young loanee Jack Stacey from right back, who curled an exquisite effort with his left foot into the far corner from the edge of the box to send the Grecians to Wembley.
