And will his replacement do fair any better? Ridiculous. But then football is ridiculous now.

In case anyone is interested and doesn't know, England play Spain in the U17 WC Final today. It's on BBC2 @ 15.30 I think.

Some of the comments after this article would make you worry about this country, if you weren't already:

Quite a few seemed disturbed by how many non white players there are in the team.

Bloody well done from 0-2 down. Great year for under age international teams in England. Will it ever convert into a great year for the seniors is the question? Prem League may say no. They won't get a chance.......

This made me smile. According to my AI friend Alexa, when I asked her for the Sports News, she said various things including upcoming football fixtures. Apparently tonight Liverpool are playing North Korea Maribor. I had to listen to it twice to make sure I wasn't hearing things.

Morata: Can't see myself staying in London long

Clarifies comment: Can't see myself staying in London long after I stop playing football. Would probably sign a 10 year contract with Chelsea if offered one.

Of course you would.

Puts me in mind of a certain Wayne "blue for life"Rooney, who signed for Manchester United. The modern footballer has no understanding of the concept of loyalty.

messageRe: Football Focus

They do, they just have different loyalties than what fans have...

I read extracts of his interview and I could understand someone from abroad not settling here. That's fair enough. What makes me laugh though is that he was most likely telling the truth initially and then on advice some up with this 10 year contract which is pure bull****. As for loyalty, well it's a career and can be a short one. Rooney moving from Liverpool to Manchester was not because of cultural differences. Morata preferring to move back to Spain or even Italy is a different kettle of fish.

He fibbed about wanting to join Chelsea in the first place, he was all set on joining MU until Utd surprised everyone and got Lukaku instead...

messageRe: Football Focus
Posted by Alan Medic 01 November, 2017 17:32

I forgot that. Did United choose wisely do you think Red?

messageRe: Football Focus
Posted by red devil 01 November, 2017 18:07

I'd say Lukaku's experience and ability to cope with the rough and tumble of the PL gives him the edge. Morata has already picked up niggling injuries. Neither is in Kane's class at the moment...

The only loyalty they have is to money. As Harry Redknapp once said, all that badge kissing is bollocks.

Why should players be the only ones to show loyalty? The clubs themselves don't, they're more than happy to get rid of a player when it suits...

Absolutely agree - it tends to be the clubs that sign the players up to long contracts, not always to retain them but to make sure they don't lose out - the length of some of the long contract signed only reflects both parties covering themselves in the event of a better offer.

its often reported as "this contract will keep "A" at the club until "2077".....which is nonsense. Of course transfer fees are payments of compensation for mutually agreed breaches of contract as agreed between the willing selling club and the willing buying club. The club is always a willing seller otherwise there would be no deal.

But I do think that where loyalty should be expected is in respect of loyalty to a manager. Not giving your all / player power / player mutiny, all of these get my goat and modern players are very much guilty of this blackmailing of club to replace a manager they don't particularly like.

Because, rightly or wrongly, they are the embodiment of the club to most fans. It's they that take part in the 90 minutes of drama played out on the pitch.

messageRe: Football Focus
Posted by Alan Medic 02 November, 2017 13:36

For the most part players give 100% on the pitch, which is about as much loyalty you can expect in that profession.

messageRe: Football Focus
Posted by red devil 02 November, 2017 13:52

Fans sign up to a club for life, players don't. Maybe they did in the olden days, when players were local and the club was very much part of the community. You probably only find that spirit in non-league clubs these days...

One of the major irritants for fans is the amount of money they pay to watch players who are paid the sort of money it would take them several lifetimes to earn in the space of a year and don't demonstrate the same passion as the fans.

Moyes would be a total disaster, far too negative both in terms of persona and style of play. Totally the wrong type of manager that West Ham need right now...

Don't worry, PhilNev says Moyes is a fantastic manager, so no need to panic...
