When Saturday Comes: Football Hopes for 2011

As 2010 ended, the WSC journalists were asked to come up with one hope for football in 2011. Here’s mine:

‘The coalition government brings in a new law requiring all Premier League footballers to live like the rest of us for one day every month, experiencing all the crappiest aspects of life in the UK today. On these days they will be required to leave their luxury vehicles at home and get the bus to work, sitting next to a group of teenagers playing tinny grime “music”  through mobile phones; go shopping at Asda, waiting ages for assistance as the incredibly paranoid self checkout facility breaks with every other item bagged; spend hours in an identikit shopping mall while the other half tries on clothes that all seem to look the same, wondering where the soul of Britain’s town centres has disappeared to.’
