I know I don't understand, he snapped my head off last night and this morning the only words I had from him were 'I'll be working late'. No texts all day and we usually have at least 6-7. It seems really childish to me....

Was is your fault then? did you make them lose?

He needs to grow up

Oh god, dh and dd are a bit like that. When they are at a match I always check the final score so I know what mood they will return in. Whatever you do, dont say 'its just a game'.

Speaking as a dedicated Spurs fan, you have to take the rough with the smooth. That's the fun of football!!

2 options.....
1-Tell him to grow up


2- Take the utmost delight in walking around with your hand on your forehead doing the Looser sign and reminding that he supports a crap team grin

Oh FFS. No way could I put up with behaviour like that.

I suggest you huff about every time you have a bad hair day to show him just how stupid his behaviour is.

Speaking as a City fan, married to a City fan, I am well used to the ups (and many downs) of football.

But I would not put up with a juvenile sulk over it. He can be a bit short straight after the match, but it won't go further than that.

That is, unless we are going to visit his family straight after a match, they are all reds and very vocal about it too.

There is no way I would stand for it spilling over into the next day! Is he a Liverpool or Rangers fan by any chance????

Gers. They really piss me off to be honest all that sectarian crap. I didn't say that mind you, all I said was 'are Seville a really good team then?'Trying to show a bit of interest. It's so juvenile and now he's infecting ds with it too.

Eldest Ds is into football too now, but his frustration/disappointment are quickly over.

I no longer live in the West of Scotland, so at least I can escape the Celtic/Rangers crap. You have my sympathies.

There really are men like this?

Dp is also sulking. You have my sympathy. Was it an important game they lost?

Yes there are men like this. And if it's a Scottish man the sulking is quite frequent.

Every time I hear these stories, I thank my lucky stars that my DP doesn't like football!

Yup DH nad DS came home none too happy last night.

Wasted about £200 on the sets of tickets and he had a "feeling" they were going to loose.

Huh !!!

God I hate football, especially when it does that to us women, turning our menfolk into blithering, huffing idiots.

Tell him to get a life, football is just such a waste of time.
