It's absolutely brilliant when our parents or guardians come and watch us play football – those words of support can help spur us on to sweet victory on the school football fieldWhether you're playing or simply cheering your friends along, keep an eye out for the four dads who, without fail, will be there...


This dad needs several cups of coffee in the morning to even have the energy to get dressed. He finds it hard to stand still and will gently sway from side to side as the game progressesYou'll see him on the touchline cheering his child on – but he might fall asleep at any given moment!Wake up, Tired Dad! 


This dad uses every ounce of energy when shouting words of encouragement to his child during a football matchHe might think he's being enthusiastic, but to everyone else, he's trying a bit too hard – we get it, you're happy to be there!


Here's a dad who seems to have his phone glued to his hand – he can't stop working, even when he's watching a game of footballEven if his child scored a hat-trick and was picked to play for his national side, we don't think Busy Dad would even notice because he's too busy talking about work – BORING!


This dad gets really, really wound up when watching any game of football – whether it's on the telly, at his favourite team's ground or even on the school fieldHe thinks he's the world's greatest football manager and probably gets so agitated because he's not allowed to play himself!If he gets any angrier, we think he might start crying – calm down, Angry Dad! It's just a game!So who do you think is the most embarrassing football dad?
