Nope! Not even him Maybe back in the day Shearer was worth his weekly wage. No fcuker is worth the obscene amounts our players get now. Call me old fashion……. Yes you can call me a kunt too
Oi, Old Fashioned, Ya Kunt, if you think shearer was worth his salt, you have to then include Rush, Fowler too, they we’re both as prolific without being on mega money, football started going Tits up when Forest paid a Million for Trevor Francis way back then,
Can you remember the uproar? I remember Clough had Francis sweep out the dressing room just to keep him grounded first game after he signed 🤣,
Back in those days a Million felt like the 100m the Fraudsters spunked for that silly tw*t Grealish, to sit on the bench,
So f**k knows where this will end up, how high is the ceiling ?
Ok a £100m may be a freak show but it has raised the bar higher for the future ‘Silly Tw*ts’ who pretend they still love the beautiful game and as yet give f**k all back, that raised bar has the likes of Rice, Bellingham etc priced far too high , and is then quoted as the going rate for players of the same ilk, it isn’t, it’s only cos the likes of City, Chavs, PSG, Newcastle probably too, having the financial clout to out muscle everyone else’s aspirations of signing young English talent,
It’s not healthy for the game and it will reach a point where the premier league will be reduced to a 4 or 5 horse race, with the other 15 or so making up the numbers each and every season, it’s been happening in Scotland for years and because of which it’s always been a two horse race, but up there, they’ve lost the f***in horse,
I think it’s strange that our custodian’s of English football absolutely Don’t have its health & well being at the forefront of their tiny avaricious minds, in their eyes the amounts of free flowing cash from the punters is a never ending stream, as ticket pricing becomes higher and higher, and as long as we have the oily lot spunking 100’s of millions to prevent the ‘Silly Tw*ts’ of this world signing for the lesser mortals, nothing will ever change,
A salary cap is one way of at least slowing down the inevitable death of the game we all love, but try convincing the, FA, Premier league, UEFA , FIFA et al, their too busy swimming in the sea of corruption !!!
Hope over Fear !!!
