Everything you wanted to know about #destitutes in Russia through the eyes of a parent, but didn’t know who to ask. Emotionally, mentally, truthfully. Take, made for you and all future dads footballers.
My name is Alex, I’m 38 years old and the last three years of my life football for me and my family takes all my free time 7 days a week. No, I’m not a coach and I don’t work at a football club. I don’t even own it. I don’t have an uncle they’d like to put up a monument to or a brother they’d talk about in the sports press.

I say this with full confidence, because I closely monitor the information space. How many people on social media reacted to the crumpled start of the meeting with Scotland is a very telling story.
