We all love football – the beautiful game. But some of us love it just a little more than others. Here are five signs that separate you from the fair weather fans and show that you’re a true football fan.
1 – YOU WISH YOUR CHILD WOULD TURN INTO A FOOTBALL
We’ve all been there. Your holding your little boy or girl and they’re incredibly beautiful, each smile or giggle melting your heart. But inside, you’re wishing they would turn into a football so you could kick them around and play all day.
2 – YOU KNOW THE SCORE OF EVERY GAME EVER PLAYED
While some are content to remark about that “great match in 2005” to try and show they know their stuff, not you. You know the only way to be a true football fan is to know the result of every game of football ever played. You also actively encourage people to ask you the score of any match in history.
3 – YOU COLLECT YOUR FAVOURITE PLAYERS’ DEAD SKIN
It’s a decades old tradition and hardcore fans still collect their favourite players’ dead skin. Though difficult to obtain, nothing stops a true football fan. You can always tell how big a football fan someone is by how many containers of dead skin they have on their mantle piece.
4 – YOU OWN A BUMPER STICKER THAT SAYS “MY OTHER CAR IS FOOTBALL”
You and the rest of the public know that your other car is not actually football. But for potential friends, it lets them know straight away that you are football mad and that you have a great sense of humour.
5 – THE REST OF YOUR LIFE IS EMPTY
If you’re a true and real football mad person, you’ll know that there’s simply no time for other interests. Politics, entertainment, food and love all take a backseat as you remain loyal to the sport. You live alone, you die alone, with only football to keep you warm.
