Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  3. For a start, it is true that this world is going bananas, actually it is going crazy.

    Two weeks ago Jo Cox, who was a politician and belonged to the British Labour Party, was murdered by a fifty-two-year-man. It is said that her killing was politically motivated. This incident touched everybody, days before the Brexit referendum.

    Another event was the Orlando massacre in a nightclub, where 49 people were killed by a terrorist. Something that caught my eyes was the man who was chatting with her mother minutes before die. It was such a pity!

    Regarding the Euro 2016 at the start there were some problems, for example, English and Russians fans quarrelled among each other before and after the match on the streets. How much violence! But now, it is nearly the end and there isn't any problem any more. Besides it is known that Portugal will be on the final. I think that the winner should be Portugal as they have played so well, especially Cristiano Ronaldo.

  4. In the world of football is very typical the world "Support". A support is a person who love one team. You can use the term to refer to all the fans of the club that is in the stadium watching the match of his team. However, it is more common to refer to the part of the fans that sing, in a coordinated way, songs of encouragement, and display different types of flags, umbrellas, etc.

    Even so, I think that support not is a synonym of the Hooligan. The hooligan is a type of people who defend their team in a violent way. In this case, it is very common to see before a match at the police with their to avoid incidents. In many chances have been fights between several hooligans groups.

    In 2016, for example before a match between Atletico Madrid - Deportivo de la Coruña a fight between hooligans caused even a death. However, today there is no one in prison.

    Finally, I want to say that in a future I would be a hooligan for the Granada CF, because I love this team. However, I am a supporter and always I go to see him and when I can, I go to other cities to see play him.
