Great post that one, especially the point about players becoming role models.I watch the football, and that's kind of it. Other than that, I have 0 interest in what happens at United or at any club. The game and our lives have turned into social media whoring and I don't and won't ever like that till the day I die.
Just looking at the Rashford situation, trying to console Elanga on fecking twitter. It's disgusting how people turn to cheap whores for money and social media attention they get from a post.
Other than the above, I'm also kind of baffled on why people(fans, players, media, etc) try to paint football players like some fecking role models/important/special people, when, mostly, other than playing footie and making a shit load of money, they're below average blokes with minimal education and, most likely, dumber than a second coat of paint. To see them as an example for kids, to me, is disgusting.
Football is a business and, like any other, there's gonna be some degree of corruption, especially when you also get governments involved. I don't mind it because I don't care about it in general. Corruption doesn't affect you if you work hard and you achieve your goals.
In short, I don't give a feck about players, clubs, managers, agents, fans, stadiums, Arabs buying clubs, transfer fees and shit like that. I only fell in love with the game played on the field, the actual fecking football. I never gave a shit about shirts, boots, players or any other stuff that comes with football. I don't even like going to games to be honest, or if I go, I go with headphones as I can't fecking bare everyone shouting the whole game "you're fecking shit mate" and many other useless curse words that have no meaning or impact on the actual game. I'm actually amazed how stupid a man can turn into when going to a football match, it's amazing.
