A defence of England football fans

The England football team have come under major scrutiny recently – as they always do although over recent years it has been the fans who are making the headlines. Indeed, 90 were arrested during the game against Holland last week. So, my blog post – a reasoned explanation as to why the English fans have got such a tough time.

The Power of Sport

“Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it’s much more serious than that” A famous quote from the late, great Bill Shankly. Shankly probably didn’t mean this literally yet recent events are showing that there may be some truth behind it. Sport is a massive part of my life, I’m a season ticket holder at Gillingham and a member at Kent and believe me it can ruin a weekend if we lose, But more important than life and death? Not a chance.
