Man proud of ability to watch any game of football

A FOOTBALL fan has proudly proclaimed that he can watch literally any game of football, from the Champions League to a lads’ kickabout in the park. 

Martin Bishop, an Everton fan in the Premier League and a fan of a dizzying array of other teams in every other league you could name, confirmed that as long as it is football, he is there.

He continued: “Scottish third division? National League South? Turkish Süper Lig? J1 League in Japan? I’ll watch them all.

“If it’s in this country or Europe, I’ll go and watch it live no bother. Saw Lisburn Distillery lose four-nil in the Northern Ireland Premier Intermediate last month. Cracking game.

“On telly? I’ve yet to see a game I’d turn over from. The South American leagues are mesmerising. You can’t beat a bit of Nigerian football. I never miss a Brisbane Roar match in the A-League.

“Walking the dog the other night, I caught a five-a-side game in the park. Got really into it. Started chanting. They’re back again Thursday. I can’t wait.”

Colleague Steve Malley said: “It is true that he can watch any game of football. What he’s never managed to explain is why.”
