    I take my son to as many games as I can. He's been going since he was 4 and has been a ST holder since he was 6 or 7.

    He's now 10 and when we're at City his behaviour is pretty much as you'd expect - 90 minutes of focused joy/frustration/questioning refs etc depending on what's happening.

    Watching on telly is a whole different ball game though. Distraction creeps in. This is what I've had tonight so far: -

    0-5 mins: optimism, support
    5-15 mins: ref's English so he's biased, keep it on the deck, Smithies is crap etc
    15-25 mins: renewed optimism, get in Glatzel, come on City etc
    25-35 mins: Dad, what sort of beard has Glatzel got? What's the worst sort of beard to have?
    35-45 mins: Steve Irwin impressions

    Love him to bits but fucking hell.

    2nd half was more intense, so fewer distractions...

    Lots of moaning at the ref
    Lots of requesting us to press
    What are they shouting at Morrison? Oh I thought they were saying "Waghorn"
    Flinging slime about and singing a song about slime (slime is a thing these days, for those without young kids)
    Derby are diving cheats
    Aaaand... time for bed
