make your taste in music suffer?
I've always thought love of sport + love of music=irreconcilable
I love my football and my taste in music is impeccable!
i love football and my taste in music is shit
I'm almost 101% sure
You'll find plenty of people on here who love both, I'm a prime example.
Although I did read an interesting theory about why footballers almost always have shit taste in music
Pat Nevin's a hero though:
"The prince among Manilow refuseniks is former Chelsea and Scotland midfielder Pat Nevin, a fan of the Fall and Joy Division who once professed a liking for obscure Factory Records act Crispy Ambulance and who, legend holds, once asked to be subbed in a Chelsea reserve game so he could go to see the Cocteau Twins playing at the ICA."
He always looks absolutely terrified on TV though
he has quite the reputation as a music afficianado up here.
Although the more football games I go to, the fewer gigs I can afford to go to and vice-versa. But that's more to do wit being poor/pissing your money away than owt else.
when they don't support Chelsea
I'm not sure what it is you're getting at. It definitely isn't some sort of Chelsea anthem if that is what you're driving at.
Sex on Fire is getting played fairly often before kick-off though.
Isn't it about a girl called Chelsea?
Pretty sure it doesn't reference the club though
but it just sounds funny that fans would sing something that included the name of another club, that's all.
I'm not going to use the words united, arsenal or wanderer
it's more prominent that the rest of the chant. I can understand what you're saying, but I'm surprised that fans of other clubs feel comfortable singing it. I know that it shouldn't matter but I thought it would.
not really a word is it?
it's not a chelsea song
celtic fans bounce along to it when they score because the fratellis (or some of them) are massive tims
you've not got a clue
ats wit i thought
They just seem like 2 things at polar opposites to each other.
And people who like sport are either working class oiks who love oasis or poshos with their jumpers tied around their necks
a uncultured oik.
so in actual fact based on this example you could argue that a love of music seems to make your appreciation of football suffer
would've been a better question
football fanatics are usually music fanatics (Nick Hornby anyone?)
Beside I love football, and I'm pretty sure i dont have bad music taste.
I would have learned to play something, and would now definitely be in a U2-sized band.
I don't think it makes any difference.
although I've got sthe kind of mentality where I know loads of obscure shit about Football and Music.
Like, you won't appreciate the brilliance of Animal Collective because you're too busy concentrating on Ernie Hunt's free-kick routine for Coventry in 1978.
and stopped caring about football to back up my punk rock credentials. I then realised what a pretentious idiot i was being and came back home to momma football.
although it was less of a conscious choice - I just drifted away from following football as much as I used to, partly because I had other interests, the main one of which was music. i then drifted back at uni, mainly due to the social side of it.
I lost interest between about 16-20 but have been back in love for a few years now
schedule gigs to coincide with Tranmere away games?
Go fuck yourself you stuck up prick
It's perfectly possible to appreciate both Joanna Newsom and Keith Houchen's diving header in the '87 cup final.
