I just realised that what little interest I have left in football these days is driven almost entirely by Schadenfreude.
What is it Peaches Geldof is supposed to have said? “Joe Bloggs who only earns 20 grand and really has to struggle doesn’t want to see Brad and Angelina strolling round in their million-dollar mansions. He wants to see them falling apart because that will make him feel better about himself. It’s deep in the mid-brain below the survival instinct. That lust to see a downfall. It’s animalistic.”
