It is only a game

Every time I see his little face I remember that however disappointed, even angry, we get at the performance of our team, football is not life and death. God bless him and his family I love you

Terminally ill Bradley Lowery waved to Everton fans in thanks as he led out his beloved Sunderland FC, days after it was revealed he has a new tumour.
Five-year-old Bradley, who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in 2013, had only recently undergone treatment.
In September, Bradley's family thanked Everton after the football club donated £200,000 to help him get treatment.
Bradley was carried on to the pitch at Goodison Park before the Premier League match between the two sides.

Well-wishers also raised hundreds of thousands of pounds to pay for antibody treatment in New York, but medics then found his cancer had grown and the family were informed his illness was terminal.
He has since undergone "tumour-shrinking treatment" at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
But on Wednesday his family confirmed scans had revealed a tumour had developed at the base of the youngster's back.
On Friday, the Football Association announced that Bradley, from Blackhall Colliery in County Durham, would be a mascot for the England team.

Without admitting anything I was moved to tears seeing the kid being carried out and doing the handshake pre-match.

As you say H, compared to this little lad's plight football is irrelevant.
