    Are we to blame?

    A fair point. And it's exacerbated when those humam beings realise that the players earn, sorry are given (for nobody earns that amount) more in a week than most normal people do in a year. Nonetheless I still feel that this understandable negativity has contributed to the depth of the hole...

    Confirmed Signing Anwar El Ghazi

    We haven't heard what players think, or what makes them interesting, since media training was a thing*. Clubs and bosses are more easily offended now than the softest snowflake. *Apart from Digne.... and we know how that ended.
