The many views of Championship wins

Football, as many have remarked, is more important than life or death. It is communal, it is social, it can inspire a fervour barely seen in religions and political movements. The players and the veneration of them is just one part of the passion inspired by football, for many football can be an expression of their politics or their beliefs. The game is about so much more than just the game, and nowhere is this more evident than when a team wins a competition.

  1. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme off this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very
    difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability
    and appearance. I must say that you’ve done a amazimg job woth this.
    In addition, the blog loads super quick for mme on Chrome. Superb Blog!
