I'm not arsed about loyalty Pogue, he's a Scouser who grew up supporting Everton and left that club to progress his career. As he shouldThe biggest mistake was fans kidding themselves the new breed of young footballers could ever be as loyal as Giggs, Neville and Scholes. The game has changed completely. They were one of a kind.
As fans we can keep on supporting every player that pulls on a shirt or we can beat ourselves up about the precise motivation behind every player that signs a new contract and exactly how long we can hold onto them if/when they get offered stupid money from a sugar daddy at another club.
I know what I'll be doing. Appreciating every last day that Giggs, Scholes and Neville keep playing, while making damn sure I don't start kidding myself about what is motivating their team-mates to keep on playing for Manchester United. I'll be supporting the shirt, not the talented yet self-absorbed young millionaires who happen to be wearing it.
It's what already monumentally rich players will do for that bit more money, thats what rankles. This went so far beyond acceptable
The more so because we thought this was a guy that played for the love of the game
