9 ways to cope with defeat

That’s it. It’s all over.

We lost, and chances are you’re feeling pretty sorry for yourself right about now. Piecing together your shattered hopes and dreams can be difficult when you’re an emotional wreck, but our ingenious ways to cope with defeat could help ease the pain. If only a little bit.

1. Support both teams

Support both teams

Cover all bases and there’ll be celebration whatever the outcome. Just make sure your mates aren’t looking when you do the switcheroo and they’ll be none the wiser! Come on you re… erm… blues!

2. Watch internet montages and remember the glory days

Watch goal montages online

Today might be a sad day in football history, but there’s always the glory days to look back on. Thanks to the wonders of the internet you can relive them over and over, until you forget today ever even happened.

3. Put your head in the freezer

Put your head in a freezer

Chill out and stick your head in the freezer. Just don’t stay in there for an ice age or you could catch a cold!

4. And comfort eat ice cream

Comfort eat

Everyone knows the cure to post knock-out sadness is copious amounts of ice cream. Or was that tonsillitis? Meh, it’s one of the two.

5. Ring your parents

Ring your parents

Nothing calms the nerves like the soothing wisdom of mummy dearest. Give your parents a call and have them make you feel better with generic phrases such as “It’s not the end of the world”, “Unfortunately, that’s life” and “There are plenty more fish in the sea”.

6. Or stroke a small animal

Stroke a small animal

If you don’t happen to own a small animal, a teddy bear will do. But if you happen to own a teddy bear you are likely to be a small child and probably more bothered about cartoons than football.

7. Take up a new hobby

Take up a new hobby

Just because we suggested you take up a hobby doesn’t mean you’ll be any good at it, mind. 

8. Start a diary

Start a diary

The silent therapist, a personal diary could be just what you need to get those thoughts off your chest. You might want to keep it hidden away though, if anyone gets their hands on it you can guarantee it’ll be online in minutes.

9. Or just cry until there are no tears left

Cry until there are no tears left

The good old fashioned way of becoming one with your issues. Just let it out. Let it all out, man.
