According to the Cambridge English Dictionary, democracy is:'the belief in freedom and equality between people, or a system of government based on this belief, in which power is either held by elected representatives or directly by the people themselves.'
Season 13 of American anti-sitcom 'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' has at long last been released on Netflix, and I binged the whole season until my body betrayed me. I finally succumbed to sleep somewhere around 4am, emotionally exhausted and aching from laughter. It's surprising that I didn’t wake the whole house with my ridiculously high-pitched breathless squeals as the gang's antics became too much.
When I left England in December, I was totally exhausted, disoriented, paralyzed by my anxiety. I had the feeling that the slightest obstacle was insurmountable, and I entered a spiral in which I created my own anxiety just by imagining it overwhelm me.

But 2018 was also awful for the sport.
Where to start? Perhaps, FIFA’s continued support for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and the overall controversy surrounding their decision to award the tournament to a country which has no footballing heritage or pedigree.
