"There are five ages to being a football fan. In Age One, you are the wide-eyed innocent in your fatherís wake, awestruck at every kick, scream and swearword.
In the Second Age, you are the young teenager at the game with mates, gleefully and liberally squawking those same swearwords.
In Age Three, in your late teens and early 20s, you are the detached, laconic observer, trying to pretend that you donít care by laughing at your teamís failures, all the while hurting underneath.
In the Fourth Age, now in your 30s and 40s, perhaps with a family of your own, you prefer to sit and analyse, making frequent references to players and games from the past.
You have reached peak wisdom, because in Age Five, as you hit middle age and beyond, you feel that your loyalty and longevity entitle you to do and say whatever the hell you want."
So we all end up like this..though I think I went from Age One straight to Age Five
