SOCCER Explained (A Saturday Special).


Some people (outside the UK) may be confused by Rachel's  obsession with Soccer (Association Football); they may not even know what this 'Soccer' is.

Here is a simple explanation.

    1. Once it's explained, it's all so easy!

  2. Wonderful result, a win for The Arsenal!
    I miss this kind of game - and humour - on the TV.

  4. Hilarious! I loved the dribbling. The referee was definitely Italian, the mother there to defend him! Greetings Maria x

    1. 'Fork handles' has now become part of everyday spoken English. I bet they never imagined that!

    2. Anyone who has any connection with Norfolk...
      especially in the Eastern half of the county**....
      tends to get somewhat obsessed with the Canaries' fortunes....
      or lack thereof!!
      Because successive boards have been into the "what can we cash in on" thought pattern...
      the best players tend to get sold on... the moment someone makes a bid for a player, they sell them... it isn't quite like that, as Rachel will probably fire back.... but as someone who has followed their fortunes and misfortunes since 1964... it certainly seems so!!
      Up and down like an incontinent pensioner!!

      **King's Lynners have a split choice... we also NEED to support the Linnets!!
      They just aren't in the same league, tho'... sorry Linnets, you aren't!!

    3. Expect wrath from Rachel; she's an Arsenal fan. I used to follow the fortunes of Brighton; but they were similar. Anyone with any talent was flogged-off at once.

    4. Arsenal.... Arsenal!!!
      What is a Norfolk person doing supporting the Gunners?!
      Unless of course, Rachel, you are so disolloooshunned by the ups and downs of the Canaries... then you are forgiven!!

    5. Forge, I have personal issues with Norwich City and Delia, who couldnt organise a piss up in a brewery, from working in the bar there many years ago. It's a long story. I have followed football in general since i was a child and was fascinated by the culture of it especially in Europe and Russia. I went to London when i was 17 to work and started following Arsenal and have followed them ever since. I wear a hair shirt for most of the season.

    1. I need it explaining to me too. It's a very different game to when I used to play. I notice that referees are always explaining infringements to the players these days too; no-one knows the rules any more (apart from the referees).
