While we all prepare to let the belts out a notch and eat until self-loathing is the word of the day, professional footballers have to watch the calories and think about the rest of term. That’s fine if you’re a Chelsea player, set to earn millions of pounds for winning the titles, but if this writer were asked to turn up and play an FA Cup 2nd Round Replay so close to turkey season, it might turn out that he has a sore calf.
Still, the magic of the cup is available if you need a pick me up, and if that doesn’t work you probably have some whiskey somewhere.
