Exactly. Transfer deadline day:
It’s the part of football that people rarely consider how upsetting and stressful it can be for the families. Being bought and sold like a commodity with your life hanging in the balance waiting for others to decide on your future. Friends outside of football say to me ‘why doesn’t he go and play for such and such a team?’ If only it was that simple.
2 days a year, the fans gather, excited, around SSN and internet forums to speculate on who they might get. The players have stressful days, worried that they may have to uproot for another part of the country.
363 days a year (minimum) the players live as millionaires, playing football for a living. The fans have stressful days, what with their football team being shit and living in a recession and being on the verge of redundancy and everything else that goes with living in the real world.
Cry me a river, pet.
