Football remains the United Kingdom's national participation and spectator sport. In fact, every major city in the country has a football team, either professional or semi-professional, and the majority of village and towns have an amateur club. The English football league remains very competitive, with teams at the bottom of a division typically being able to keenly contest those at the top. People in the country take this sport very seriously, yet it is also meant to be fun. LOL Football ( — www.lolfootball.com) works to show the lighter side of football though the use of satire and other means.
"Imagine having a perfectly lovely Sunday ruined by your team losing at football. This has happened to individuals again and again, and some take it more seriously than others. As one fan explained, Manchester United's winning of the English Football League Cup brought back all of the darkness and sadness in his life, and he likely wasn't alone. Depression set in, followed by hysterical expletives and an incoherent rant," Dave Turner, spokesperson for LOL Football (lolfootball.com), happily explains.
The site focuses on more than simply satire, however. It also provides the news fans want about their favorite sport. Individuals want to know about fake news death rumors regarding former Blackburn Striker Denys and which team their favorite politician supports. This information can be found on the site also.
"Football is about much more than statistics. Although it's nice to know the score of today's game or which player is looking to be traded, there is a great deal of information that many fans don't have. Our aim is to provide this information, so every person can know exactly what is going on with their favorite player, team and sport, but we provide this information in a fun manner, as opposed to simply reporting the facts," Turner continues.

This blog covers a variety of topics, including famous supporters of the Manchester City football team and five people who weren't scared of Roy Keane. Be sure to check it out and look for new entries to learn even more about this popular sport.

In addition, we ask that fans follow use on our social media platforms and join in the discussion. Football is meant to be fun and, with your help, we can ensure that is it," Turner states.
