How modern football has degenerated

As a follow up to the earlier post about Sterling’s pending departure from Liverpool FC it is worth remembering the words of the late Sir Bobby Robson

“What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”

    A tragedy indeed. All true football fans will see how the land lies.
