Every football fan knows how devastating it is when there’s no football on.
A boring Wednesday at work is made worse without a game to watch at night.
And things go to a whole new depressing low in the summer when the season ends.
So what do you do when met with the devastating realisation that football is gone and isn’t coming back for a while?
Worry not, here’s 25 great things you can do to pass the time.
