The news that almost a quarter of men from Birmingham would choose their football team ahead of their partner came as a shock to me. Not quite as much as when I found that 28% of men from Leicester would make the same preference! I guess a lot of Leicester's men wish they were with someone more like Natasha.

26-year-old Natasha Tyers recently won a date on ITV1's Take Me Out where it became apparent she was a big Leicester City fan. This statistic means that there are 60, 500 men choosing their team over their partner in Leicester; they obviously don't have a girl like Miss Tyers!
As for me, my football team, Leicester City, is very important to me. I don't think I could choose it over my wife-to-be. She has to come first in everything for our marriage to work and I'm prepared to do that. However, I am ever so blessed to have a partner who has taken on my Fox-hood full storm and who is currently looking forward to our trip to the Walkers on Saturday, our sixth match of the season. She can even name players at a glance. Awesome!
Bettor.com's quote that women should respect the football love and just not ask to do something at 3pm on a Saturday makes sense to me. Although, if you are lucky enough, like me, you can just take your wife along with you!
