    has money destroyed the game sa we know it?

    all these comments are so spot on(that slang dates me)...
    do you remember when 2x3x 5 was the standard formation
    ....when you had 5 forwards and attack was the name of the game.....do the young fans of today realise what a feast of attacking football we had ...teams were fairly equal and the title was open ....god...to see greavsy in full flow again ...or best weaving his magic....the genius of matthews,gazza.....the majesty of moore.....jennings with hands like shovels....all gone....a few replacements yes....but different ....prima donnas?....now as others have said ...winning is all .....chairmen and fans want instant success......managers are short-lived....fans of today don't realise it....but they have lost what we had.....the love of the game.....the heart and soul.....i have stood in snow.....pouring rain.....bitter cold....'cos i loved my team
    .......like all of us.....yes i wanted glory....but my being belonged to spurs.....christ...i am getting maudlin......as shankly said
    football is not a matter of life and death....it's more important than that.'.....
