How many times have we had to say both of those things in the last two years.
To be honest mate, I have simply had enough.
I look at the money in this game, I look at the players, I SEE the corruption, its not the football I grew up loving, now we have sleeve sponsors FFS. However we have the worst of it, we know what kind of money is coming into this club but we are not seeing it spent, we have this sponsor, we have that sponsor, and all this money is being spent on god knows what, its not our club.
I look at the tragedies around the world, the bomb attack in Manchester, the attacks in France, the attacks in America, Bradley Lowrey, Charlie Gard, the kids especially, parents trying their best to raise not even a thousand pounds to pay for life saving medical bills, just trying to make ends meet.
However in the end, the dreams are dashed, the people club together, they try to save humanity but it is all for nothing. The heartache that is there, the death of children, who cares eh?
There used to be a time when supporters or fans looked up to players, players like John Barnes, to people like Geoff Hurst, to players like Bert Trautmann, players who not demanded respect, but simply got it. We don't have that now.
There used to be a time when football clubs resonated with the fans. That has long gone. Look at the money both Manchester clubs have spent on transfers, and yet when it came to the bombings, neither of them could spare many of the vast millions they have to help their city? they combined to raise a million? This is where my issues started, are you saying some lousy bas**rds life who can kick a ball is worth £80 million, and that one civilian who happens to be dying, who needs a few hundred quid to stabilise his life, oh and he is a surgeon who has saved many lives isn't worth saving?
Same in France, the police force has been stretched for years, they need investment, PSG sign Neymar for £200 million, the people who were killed, meh move on, we cant afford the bills, and yet......
Its hard to enjoy football now, its all just utterly, morally wrong. Clubs, investors, agents, players, they have the stranglehold now, the supporters and fans? They are the mindless drones keeping these parasites in money.
For me, sod this. Its repugnant, its no longer the sport I loved, its just nasty, Faust would be proud.
