When talking about the top level, professional game, I would be in agreement with these sentiments. If the over-bloated, corporate manifestation of the game, that has mutated out of Abramovich's introduction of financial doping/sportswashing to football, were to collapse, I would actually be satisfied with that.Still no. To the point where if I'm checking out a news site like the BBC or summat and I see a link to a story where someone connected to football is putting forward some kind of plan for how it can all be re-started somehow (be it finishing the 2019/20 season or starting a new season later in the future), my first reaction is to think, "Oh fuck, I hope that doesn't happen."
Find myself in a personally contradictory position where I don't want the entire game to collapse because it would have disastrous economic implications for a lot of decent hard-working wage-earners employed by football clubs and the rest of the associated supply chain*, but also from my own selfish perspective I simultaneously hope that it doesn't ever start again because the last couple of months have shown me pretty emphatically that I'm happier without Spurs and football in my life.
*albeit zero fucks given about the players and staff at the top of the game earning vast salaries well beyond the dreams of us working stiffs; I would shed not a single tear if no player ever again earned tens of thousands of pounds per week
I see Spurs related headlines on SC, regarding transfers or players etc, and find myself completely uninterested.
