For the love of football
Well that’s it, the world cup was the usual roller coaster of emotions for any English fan. The negative build up, everyone writing off the team before it had begun, the euphoria of actually getting past the first round, a slow building belief that this could be the year, and then the final crushing disappointment of seeing them splutter out in the final minutes of a game they began by dominating. This year was, as many people have commented, when England had a chance. Or so they thought. But for me, a seasoned pessimist it was another nail in the coffin of my enthusiasm for a game I love. Still, it’s a game of two halves and maybe one day we`ll be able to win both of them. I would so like to see a second star above the three lions.
Euphoria – Feeling of extreme happiness
Pessimist – To think in a negative way
Nail in the coffin – one step closer to the end
