Today is not a good day. The England ride is over and a world which had seemed so optimistic and exciting is now back to the more disappointing reality.
Even the heatwave is ending.
So what to do?
Well, if you’re a Nottingham Forest fan then here’s an opportunity to pack a carry-on, get a cheap flight, and head for a few days of Spanish holiday. We may even join you.
Diario de Sevilla report that as Nottingham Forest are set to face Real Betis at the Nuevo Mirador stadium in Algeciras on Saturday evening, every effort is being made to tempt fans.
Prices for the friendly have been put at a very cheap €8. Want to take the kids? Well it’s €3 for under 13s. Even if you can’t get a ticket in advance, it’ll be €10 on the gate.
Algeciras looks like a wonderful coastal town, and it’s expected to have glorious sunshine for the next few days.
You know you want to.
