Can football wreck your life?
He has already conducted research into the behaviour and attitudes of fans from Middlesbrough, Newcastle, Sunderland, Hartlepool and Darlington.
This revealed that 74% of surveyed fans said they arranged their personal lives around football fixtures.
Kevin said: 'This statistic made me want to explore what effects could this have on close friends and relatives.
'This time I`m not just looking for responses from the North-east but the whole of the UK.
'We want those who feel strongly about this issue to come forward and share personal experiences online as long-suffering partners, friends or relatives of football fans."
In a pilot study one woman said: 'My partner watches football programmes endlessly throughout the week. I rarely get a chance to hold the TV control.
'When he says 'You can watch your TV programmes in five minutes` I should ask, 'Is that real time or football time?` I wait endlessly for the stupid clock to run down and then the half-baked 'analysis` from the pundits ('He kicked that ball really far Alan.` 'That`s right he did. Let`s see that in slow motion 10 times` and so on). All the while I am wondering if I will actually be able to watch whatever I was hoping for.'
Issues to be explored include:
* How does football affect household expenditure, particularly during the credit crunch and with rising heating costs?
* How does football interfere with your life?
* Does football affect your relationships?
* What do you do to escape football in the mass media?
