I Should Be So Lucky, Lucky, Lucky, Lucky


Do you have a pre-match ritual you undertake to try to create good luck for your team?

According to a new study, almost 2 million of us do in this country.

The most popular ritual, indulged by 35 per cent of superstitious fans, is having a lucky pre-match drink (like we need an excuse). Lucky clothing is the next most popular, including certain socks or pants. Others include using the same parking spot every time, praying and even having sex.

I'm not particularly superstitious I have to say but isn't there a bit in all of us that thinks "Well what have I got to lose"?.

So I think I might try a few of these out before our home match against Crewe on Tuesday. Just in case.

I'll leave you to imagine which ones I choose.

I used to have a ritual when I was in my high school team... I would always go and thump each member of the team on the back before the game... I just had to do it... all the starting players...

I go jogging through the park near the house, counting magpies... often until I find two.. salute them, just to be on the safe side...
too the neighbours a while to get used to that weird woman in black&white who talks to birds..

Having sex before the game?
I believe the Swindon team must have had it at half time when they played Bristol Rovers and were on a promise at full time. Conceding an equaliser with 10 seconds to go.
Nearly as bad as the Foxies when they played us.

Where would football be without a little superstition?

I'm not ashamed to admit that on match day I avoid direct contact with anything green and I've recently taken to wearing maroon socks. We've now won 5 on the trot. The lucky socks have it all under control...
