I would urge anyone who considers themselves a proper football fan not to just live in the moment and believe that football was invented in 1992, or that Jamie Vardy is England's greatest goalscorer, but to get acquainted with your club's history, properly. It would help you win a few more arguments in the pub too.
The weight of doom England fans carried when gearing up for the World Cup was heavy and the media wrote about nothing more than the impending disappointment we are so used to facing. So this time it's easier and a hell of a lot less painful - we're not even there! Perhaps now we can enjoy the football.
