    Domestic football over until until mid-August. What will football fans talk about?

    Transfers? Football gossip? Next season?

    Imagine a world where it is illegal to talk about football outside of the regular football season.

    What would serious football fans talk about / do then?

    Would the world be a different place if people spread their energies more?

    Football is to men as Shopping is to women

    In theory, watching england in euro 2008 should of passed the time, but nevermind !!

    Will just await the boring pre-season friendlies and new fixture list to arrive.

    I'm really looking forward to away trips to charlton, norwich, qpr.......not !

    if it was illegal i would kill myself

    Well in fact football is not over yet.

    We still have the league play offs this weekend.

    And two England friendlies (28 May & 1st June).

    Then Euro 2008 (7th - 29th June).

    The Inter toto cup stats in mid July (with Aston Villa) - first matches 19/20 July

    Then the pre-season tournaments start.

    Then the charity shield on August 10th.

    Premier league starts August 16th.

    Lets talk about Newcastle winning the title next season

    Yes, we saw many of the same strategies used by the racists on that pulled thread. Pity I don't have access to it - could have done a quick comparison using the tools in this article.
