During a rather boring spell at work today, I was thinking about football again. (if you looked inside my head, you’d see a match going on most of the time). And something dawned on me. Why not try a three legend a month deal. Here’s how it goes. Liverpool has enough legends you could run out. I’d not have them on the pitch longer than a half hour.
Thank about that, Gerrard connects with John Barnes for a goal against Manchester United. Or John Wark and John Aldridge connect on a goal to beat Everton. Or heck you could have Torres and King Kenny play up top.
Ok, in reality, how many of these legends could you get to come out of retirement to play a month a season to get the club back to where they are supposed to be? Their hearts for the club would make them do it in a second. And I’m sure some of them are in good enough shape to play thirty minutes. And there are players in the EPL who aren’t up to the level of the league (heck most of Pompey isn’t).
Ok, lemme snap myself back in reality. The game has changed a lot since these players last played, and most of them are 40+ and it’s a young man’s sport. But strangely I can see someone like Barnes or King Kenny (my favorite player) doing better than a lot of the players filling their positions in the league. Now, would they be stars like yesteryear? no. But think about it, if they could help return the club back to the league glory that it needs, than they could be double legends.
Well that’s my view, now lets see if it works in my dreams again.
