Keep on taking the tablets

I went to see my doctor this afternoon and, as usual, his first question was about football. Would I be more upset if Charlton lost a key match than England? I thought it was like comparing apples and pears because at least England have given something to be proud of and celebrate. However, he said he would be more upset by a Manchester City setback.

After discussing the performances of England and Croatia, we eventually got round to my chronic Rolanditis for which he confirmed there is no known cure, but I should carry on taking the tablets for Belgian Fever to ameliorate the effects. If I felt too distressed, I should do a Neymar roll.

I then went to collect the tablets from my pharmacist who is a keen Sunderland fan and was at the Greatest Game. He reminded me of the first fixture of the season, something he thought would not have been possible two years ago. But he noted that relations between fans of the two clubs had always been friendly.

I then had to dash to the television studio to appear on France 24's evening bulletin and with my eye off the ball nearly said 'President Chump'.
