We get it, we really do. You get drunk, you start to air some grievances at your employer and your colleagues, it happens. We don’t do that at The18 per se, because we love each other and you shouldn’t do that, but we totally get it when you’re a Sunderland employee.
Can you imagine how stressful working for Sunderland must be? Every year, your company is sometimes weeks, sometimes days from going under. There’s no stability, and you’re micromanaged by David Moyes. You have to watch the company visionaries do things like spend $13 million on Jozy Altidore.
Hey guys, we've put together a list of all the things female fans love you to tell them. Seriously, they love it.
You are never too young to learn important life skills: how to balance a checkbook, how to navigate the convoluted world of health insurance, how to win the heart of a special someone who has caught your eye, how to keep your credit score high so as to procure advantageous interest rates on mortgages, car loans and the like.
How to win a fight at a soccer match.
Even though you are not alowed to use your hands in soccer, some fans of the beautiful game have become particularly adept at throwing things.
I am referring, of course, to the fan in Argentina who took down a drone with just a roll of toilet paper.

For years now, dedicated fans and wanna-be designers have been mocking up jerseys that are infinitely better than what Nike, adidas and the rest continually roll out. It’s the fans that pay around $100 for these annual threads, but it often seems like jersey manufacturers go out of their way to mess things up.
“You guys always wear vertical stripes? Okay, we’ll make them horizontal.”
“The jersey is always just predominately red? Okay, we’ll throw in some black, white, yellow and blue for good measure.”
Is UEFA blaming the victim?
Celtic seem to think so — at least with regards to the governing body’s response to crowd trouble during and after Celtic’s Champions League qualifier against Linfield FC in Belfast last week.
Media reports describe Hoops officials as “stunned and astonished” after UEFA leveled charges of “improper conduct” against the club and “provocation” against striker Leigh Griffiths following the heated first leg of the tie.
