That was easy and great to listen to this audio, I learned more about football.

I wouldn't want to be a football steward, dealing with a large number of people is very difficult, people are very complicated. That job isn't for me. :)

I think if the steward is a real football fan, is difficult to him can't see the match, he would want to support his team, but, his current job doesn't allow him to watch the game, he has to look out for the fans, is really hard, when his team score a goal hi can't see this moment and celebrate with the other fans.
