Re: Sam hutchinson retires age 21
Just goes to show how fine the line is between making it and falling by the wayside.
Nick Hornby put it better than anyone in Fever Pitch with his Gus Ceasar story...
Best kid in his primary school for years
Best kid in the senior school by a mile
Best kid in the town team for years
Best kid in the Arsenal youth setup
Best prospect in the Arsenal reserves
A fair few first team games
But even then, even after he was the best of the best at every level he'd ever played at, he still wasn't good enough and it ended up going downhill...
This Chelsea lad was at the 'best kid in the youth setup stage' a while back and it must be soul destroying to never know if he was a Gus Ceasar or a Tony Adams
Blind panic is what you get when you cross Macar with McCartney.
