A trait synonymous with terrace banter!
I can recall in distant days gone by the feeling of despair when Chelsea were on the receiving end of a 7 goal thrashing when our backsides were kicked by Nottingham Forest.
But, on the journey home the quartet in my car exchanged banter to lighten the mood and by the time we were back in Bedfordshire, the world seemed a better place and we were looking towards the next game.
Over in Brazil I`m not sure that a similar scenario is developing, in fact I get the impression that it`s a nation in mourning.
However, it won`t stop me trying to angle this article in the direction of the jocular, although some with Brazilian connections might not see the funny side.
Please feel free to add your suggestions in our comments facility once you get the drift of what road I`m going down.
So here goes - things not to do today in any big Brazilian city:-
1 - Don`t go into a restaurant and request a table for 7!
2 - When asked what you`d like to drink don`t request a 7-Up!
3 - Please don`t remind anyone just how much Paris St Germain has paid us for David Luiz!
4 - Please don`t try to be smart and try and ask any Brazil fans whether they thought they could Schurrle do better or mention that the score-line wasn`t even Klos or that their side got Muller(-ed)
5 - Don`t stroll into a bar and put the Madness song Embarrassment on!
6 - Please don`t try to sell that job lot of yellow and blue t-shirts you ordered proclaiming Brazil as 2014 World Cup winners!
Now you must have got the drift, please feel free to add your own jibes!
