United - Grotesque is the Word!
It`s the morning after the day before!
I`m sitting watching the early morning Sports News and I`m a troubled man.
I still can`t get my head around the dramatic u-turn performed by Wayne Rooney, I still can`t accept that there wasn`t another agenda.
I`ve some figures, plucked form the tabloid press, running through my head that seriously trouble me.
I can`t quite accept that anybody who plays football for a living can be paid anywhere between £160,000 to £250,000 a week.
It`s a grotesque sum totally at odds with what has been going on in this country this week.
My dad once warned me that under a Tory government the rich would get richer and the poor would get poorer.
And that`s what troubling me!
I glimpse down at the other major news topic of the day and the sad plight that Portsmouth Football Club find themselves in.
Pompey, as we know them; could be no more come this time next week, ravaged by behind the scenes dealings that must, surely, sicken their supporters.
I try to imagine what life would be like without the football club we love, I can see nothing but emptiness.
But flashing before my eyes is the grotesque sum that Rooney will be earning in a year, a colossal amount compared to the amount that Portsmouth owe.
Now Wayne did the dirty on us last week and it`s debatable as to what kind of reception he`ll receive when he wears a United shirt again, some will cheer but I`m quite convinced some will boo.
Now this is a long shot but wasn`t the suggestion that Wayne would do such a u-turn once he`d issued his want-away statement?
Football is in danger of losing a famous club, now wouldn`t it be a tremendous act if Wayne, with his bank account bulging courtesy of a massive pay hike, lead a campaign whereby those top earners in our game got together to help this once proud south-coast club?
For me it`d help ease the grotesqueness of it all and I`m sure do something to ease the fans perspective of someone that still has a sign dangling over his head that reads - greedy b*stard!
