  14. 19. Questions
  15. 20. A thought ……….. “ A 100yrs from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove… But the world maybe a different place because I was important in the life of a child” “ Only a player of such a tender age has the ability to turn a small 60x40 pitch, into his stadium, packed with 60,000 people singing his name. Only he can bring in players worth millions to play alongside him. Every Friday night he dreams of scoring the winner live on TV, and the beauty of his dream is that if it doesn’t happen this week, it is sure to happen next week.”
