OPEN THE FLOOR
In recent times we can honestly debate on the following topic. I remember Phil Thompsons words at one Stage. That when the Liverpool players of the 70’s and 80’s entered the gates of Anfield they were proud to wear the jersey on that day and play with heart. Money was never in proportion to Heart and Intestinal Fortitude. I was at a wedding the other day. Sitting there talking about life. The days 50-100 bucks saw you through a movie with your chick, Ackals with your chick and petrol. All of a sudden this Uncle comes through. We call him 2.3 million. Coz everything he says is 2.3 million. He saw a house on Clifton.It was 2.3 Million. He bought a horse for 2.3 million. We got container.It cost us 2.3 bar. You bring 2.3 bars I bring 2.3 Bars.Done Deal. Anyway…….
In Conjunction with last weeks post ,cheating could be influenced by financial gain and the pressure to keep Sports Giants like Adidas,Nike etc paying. Endorsements alone offer players huge amounts of Cash. Like Becks for example. We all know that he went to LA for the money and probably a Hollywood lifestyle. If football and heritage was what he wanted he would go back to Old Trafford and be worshipped. Dont get me wrong Becks is a Marketing Phenom But a boy raised in Old Trafford and goes to LA. Just doesnt tie up. Luciano Moggi sold Juve for the pressures to win and gain Financial stardom.
A while back Dennis Bergkamp was the most expensive footballer at 7.5 million pounds. Then Shevkenko went at 32 million pounds I think. For a guy over his 30’s. This post also stems from a poll that soccernet.com is running. In spite of Chelski’s Wage Bill and spending they have lost 380 million pounds under Abrahomovic. This is crazy. What are your owes views on this
Soccernets poll stated
1 Its disgusting and shouldnt be allowed
2. Its his money and he can do whatever he wants
3. As long as Chelsea are winning I dont care
4. It will all end in tears
48% of the people said Its his money and he can do what he feels.
Look at Salaries. I mean I cant even fathom it. An average guy earns 20000 pounds a week, x 13 .A WEEK, A f$%KEN WEEK.
Look I admit I take my hat off to any footballer as it is an achievement to get to that level. But look at a guy like WinstoN Bogaarde. The Dutch player with the thick gold chain.He looks like oNE Rand or 50 c ,whatever, He did f$#%kall for about ten years and earned 50 000 pounds a week. The man refused to leave till his contract expired.
My point Ladies and Gentleman is SIMPLE. AND HIGHLY DEBATABLE.
HAVE PLAYERS LOST THE PRIDE AND HEART OR IS IT ALL ABOUT THE MONEY………
AND SEE IF YOU CAN ADD INPUT TO THE CHELSEA POLL.
