Football Anyone – No Thanks, Not For Me

About 10 years prior Thailand got football fever and nothing has at any point been something similar here. Pretty much every Thai you converse with these days follows football. The folks down the bar, ladies at work, they all have their number one group and most loved player. Peculiarly, however, that group is by all accounts Manchester United, and David Beckham is the lone player they know. This is an ordinary discussion you’ve most likely had with a cab driver.

“Where you come from?”

“I’m from England.”

“Ok! Manchester United numbah one.”

Or then again

“Goodness. You know Tony Beckham? He numbah one.”

Dislike the cabbie is even from modern Bangkok. He’s presumably from Buri Somewhere, yet he sure find out about football and footballers than I at any point will.

I will be an apostate here and come clean with you. Football is about the exact opposite thing I’m keen on. I’m into lone games – like swimming (bet you thought I planned to say something different, isn’t that right? Insidious, shrewd.)

However there is no moving away from it. It doesn’t make any difference where you go on the planet football is the main subject of discussion. You can be 500 miles up the Amazon River and an Indian will pop his head out of the wilderness and ask, “You like Manchester United?” And in the event that you say “No” he will presumably skewer you to death.

In spite of this, you need to consider how much a portion of these ‘fans’ truly think about football. เล่นบาคาร่าออนไลน์ฟรี They all appear to get some information about ManU, yet I’ve never had anybody outside Australia ask me how I like the group from, say, Footscray. Hell! On second thought, I’ve never had anybody outside Melbourne, the home of Australian Rules, get some information about Footscray, or Aussie Rules football either besides.

Aussie Rules football in Melbourne isn’t only a game. It’s a fixation. I was on a transport one day in Melbourne when two old gentlemen of Italian legacy got on and sat behind me. Their discussion went this way. It truly did.
