Did you know, in any four year period, there are only four months in total when there isn't any competitive football to watch on the box.
With the Premier League and the rest of the European competitions running from August through to May and every other summer dominated by the World Cup or the Euros, actually getting time away from football is a harder task than you might think. That might explain just why, as a nation, we're just a little bit obsessed by it.
Even if England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales stand as much chance of actually winning a major competition as any of the TrustedReviews team does winning The X Factor, there is one place we can thwack the ball into the back of the net: on our mobiles.
That's why the App Store plays host to just a few football games – or 'soccer', if they're attempting to be international – with some replicating the national sport more successfully than others. And so, as ever, we're decided to wade through all iOS has to offer to bring you the cream of the crop – the Man Citys, the Chelseas, the Arsenals of the App Store, if you will.
