    Good Luck Everybody!

    And remember to try to enjoy the actual football too!

    A lesson I myself am trying to learn, as I get so involved in things like who got the assists, will I get points off my bench, why wasn’t that counted as a save for my keeper etc, that often the actual match passes me by!
