The Secret Footballer

Anyone else reading him in the guardian or following him elsewhere? Quite interesting. If you don’t know what I’m on about he’s supposedly a premier footballer writing anonymously in the Guardian giving us the insider view of the game. To me he comes across equally humble and arrogant but on the face of it at least honest. Today he’s on about wages but he makes a few dodgy assumptions as far as I’m concerned. Have a read see what you think

For instance would any of you be content for Leeds or your own club to spend 250 million pound on Ronaldo, Torres and  Messi if it meant your team winning the Prem. The secret footballer boldly assumes that’s a given and that every fan would. I strongly disagree, I know I wouldn’t and if my club became that sort of club they would still be my club but the love would go and I wouldn’t buy a season ticket

We've been there and done that, and sadly felt the consequences.

I reckon he uses a little artistic license, I'm guessing there's probably a ghost writer involved too...
