I have a theory. If we all ignore the hype, press and media speculation and tv programmes, and pretend nothing is happening, then we may get to the final almost un-noticed. Over optimism only leads to disappointment.

All of these events finish before any of the footy starts.

Try

1) Drink in the Dragon where even football chat was banned last time.

2) Twilight golf, half the price and courses will be empty

3) Go to Scotland
