Window Shopping

It’s astonishing to me that a sport run by idiots, played by idiots and supported largely by idiots could be so successful.

The idea that the English football transfer window stays open until the third week of the season is stupid.

Clubs spend the entire off-season training, re-assessing themselves and preparing for a new season, only to have their best players leave after one or two games? Big clubs get better as they quickly release their weaknesses and head off with their cheque books in search of an upgrade. Weak clubs suffer.

Transfer rumours and sagas drag on for weeks and just marr the first few weekends of the season. Players refuse to play for their clubs, demanding a move. Others work hard all off-season to be forced to up and leave with their families after just a few days of a new season.

Imagine for a second a season where the transfer window closed before the first game. All teams would be readied, assembled and the excitement would be more intensely focused on the product rather than the ingredients.

To an average-fan such as myself, the situation just appears stupid and unnecessary.

(Mind you, if Liverpool sign Clint Dempsey and Daniel Sturridge before Friday night, you may be reading a glowing report of the situation in a matter of days.)

    Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended
    up losing many months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to
    stop hackers?
