If you are a football fan, these apps MUST be a part of your life. When you eat, drink and sleep football, you cannot allow any little news or update to go by. Like the famous quote from Simon Dyer in the UK goes:
“Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it’s much more serious than that.”
