Looming hangover for English football lovers

By Victor Nyakachunga | June 3rd 2015

The absence of these games therefore bars fans from interacting and enjoying the heated arguments that come in handy whenever supremacy topics arise.

One such fan identified as Ambani confessed that life is boring without a game to catch up with during the weekends. 

“I feel so bored when there’s no premier league game to watch during the weekends…I mean it’s the only time I catch up with friends and talk football,” he said.

Football fans are known are known to obsess over the beautiful game such that whenever a season is out, they have deal with routine shocks; some however prefer to shift their attention to transfer markets, the new design of their team’s kit, and the preferred coach stats for their new season. It is a cycle that fans enjoy and haters abhor.

In England, football fans have occasionally been spotted loitering around various stadia as they discuss the next season’s prospects.

The local football clubs ratings have not arguably gained the level of class associated with the European football to cause one such ecstasy that would result into a hangover. Most football teams have a dwindling support and lack major fan base with passionate followers found in Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards.

To quench your thirst from the long wait of the next season, pick a local team and inject your zealous support to it, you shall have restored fanatic hole.
