Support the Rich, Be Seated…

Whatever happened to cheap football in England? It ended the day the terraces closed. That’s a generation ago now, many kids find it odd that fans once stood in hail, rain and urine, swaying forwards and backwards in waves of reaction to goals, to bad refereeing, and to taunts from the waves at the other end of the stadium. The seat replaced the breakers, the hills were once alive with the sounds of fans, now they are dulled by the seated drudgery of bloated modern stadia. They still stand at football in Argentina. Their game rocks. Destroy the seats. Bring back standing. And lose some weight.
