Pulling in the girls can sex up the game of football!
London, July 30 : Football fans believe that the game would be a lot more fun if an increased number of ladies went to watch the 'beautiful' sport.
Also, watching soccer matches would be a whole lot different experience if glasses of beer can be enjoyed in the stadium seats.
That's the conclusion of a new magazine survey, which wanted to know the different ways of sexing up the game. Also, in the survey, fans were asked to list what they loved best about the game - and what they hated most.
The survey revealed that supporters of the game want to see an end to goalscorers kissing their jewellery in celebration and they hate music blaring out every time the home team scores.
Another way to sex up the game would be to ban the Mexican wave and give all match-day mascots the red card. But the biggest complaint is about BBC reporter Garth Crooks.
Almost eight in 10 said that the BBC should sack the 50-year-old ex-Spurs striker over his long-winded and pompous questions.
An amazing 97percent said they would love more pretty women turning up to support teams.
"Sky need to get a cameraman to scour the crowd for fit birds. Hit the red button for talent cam!" the Daily Star quoted a fan, as saying.
More than nine in 10 want to be able to buy a drink in bars at the ground and take it to their seat.
Three in five want a return to the traditional kick-off time of 3pm on Saturday, while a similar figure said they are sick of "ring kissers" like Chelsea's Frank Lampard, 30.
Match-day mascots were called "pointless" by 42percent while 69percent hated the Mexican wave, the study found.
