Re: Will the season feel the same when it restarts?

It was like being in the middle of a bad dream when football was suspended.

Within a fortnight football was gone out of my daily thoughts. It's a social gathering, it's somewhere to release tension (or build up stress) it's fantastic, exhilarating but most of all, it's just a game.
