Who’s wearing red? Where is Messi? Is that not offside? Nobody asks more questions about football than the people who don’t really watch the sport. Answering their questions is not going to make them start watching it either, so if they stress you, stress them back by giving them these answers.

Who’s wearing red?

The Babalawos my dear, they’re trying to use juju to control the ball.

Is it a friendly match?

Is this not Chelsea playing?

No actually. It’s Enyimba o. They came to play a friendly match in the Premier League

Why is Messi not in Barcelona again?

How many offsides are allowed in football?

I have no words for you.

I’m a die-hard Manchester United Fan
