There is to much money in our game
What ever happened to playing for the love of the game and having some fun
To much emphasis on business and making money
The actual game comes second these days
I dont remember all this crap happening in the 70s 80s and 90s
Um......... Super League??

Greed and incompetence.
I look forward to the day you get to address today's footballers and tell them there's too much money, that they should play for the "love of the game".

Never any greed or incompetence in the 70s or 80s, no.
Thanks for your concerns. But I was a bit general in my reply hence your comments. I could write a book on greed and incompetence in our game as the product developed since the 70s. Most had nothing to do with the players.
Today we saw a true champion in Winx, and a true bludger in Cleary!
