    I fell asleep twice, yes twice, watching the England game this week, towards the end of the first half, thankfully missing all the half time talk by the pundits and again halfway through the second half, thankfully (again) the missus woke me up in time to see the goal.

    I can't remember that ever happening before... well truthfully once I dozed for a few seconds, but only once, not twice, watching an England qualifier, can't remember who it was against, that's how memorable it was!

    With these qualification groups like they are, where are we heading and what is it going to be like in future WC? Is sleepy time football all we can expect?

    Insomniacs take note, book your place in front of the telly for the next England qualifier... oh sorry they have already qualified, look outside then and watch the grass grow!

    I remember falling asleep once during LvG's tenure.

    Seen a few claiming they've fallen a sleep watching Utd this season already. I don't get it though, unless you live in another timezone.

    I think people are making it up.

    I haven't watched an England match in full since Brazil 2014, whoever we played the day Suarez had another chomp at someone (Chiellini?) it was that memorable I can't even remember who we played, just remember the news coming though he'd been at it again and me and another LFC mate laughing about it wishing he'd hurry up and get sold.

    Even the highlights now are laborious to watch, I tend to stick on a condensed 5 minute one on YT and even then you can smell the mediocrity oozing off the screen.

    Kudos to anyone who can sit and watch a whole match without losing the will to live, never mind having a snooze.

    Safe to say the fan who fell asleep in the stands during that match that wouldn't have been alone.

    Doubt it, a lot of us were asleep at the time.

    Yes, didn't fall asleep, but once or twice watching games live, I've thought "if I was watching this at home on the TV I would turn it off"

    Because of the time difference I am always asleep when England play. I haven't watched one of our games since about 2005.

    What about that 'ball circulation', though, eh? You'll tell your grand kids.

    I genuinely fell asleep multiple times watching LVG's football. In fairness my dad had just got a wood burner and hadn't worked out how to regulate it properly yet, so being in a sauna didn't help.

    Yeah, I actually lost count of the amount of times I fell asleep during LVG's time here. I even remember waking up to see we'd lost at home to Norwich, and spent a good amount of time convinced I was still dreaming. I wasn't.

    the only thing worse than watching England play is listening to ITV's dull, unfunny and pathetic pundits (not to mention whichever presenter they dig up from the grave)
