When my team loses

When my team loses the weekend is tinged with a bout of depression. I get a similar

  • feeling when I’ve let a loved one down,
  • or lost something valuable,
  • or messed up at work.
  • But… I’ve been thinking about my options;
    1. move away, Manchester or London nice places
    2. go shopping with my partner on Saturdays
    3. just man up

    Getting over a disappointing result is easier said than done. Especially if your team loses after a 3 goal cushion or if they leak a goal in the 92nd minute.

    Such defeats see your emotions dragged through a shredder week after week. After a day or two the scars start to heal and scabs form. In a few short days however, your wounds can be exposed again.

    I offer wonder if young inexperienced (worldly experience) millionaire players suffer the same fate and are crushed by a defeat to their team.

    The other side of the coin is the feeling of elation, even gaiety that overcomes you when your team wins.

    No wonder all the top teams have an army of surrogate supporters. They follow such teams to offset the emotional turbulence caused by the local teams. Top teams have their uses and can be an emotional safety blanket if your team is in the relegation zone.

    I don’t want to hear from anyone who genuinely supports a local super team :(
