Back in 1981 we had possibly the finest team I've ever seen at our current level. The team of the first half of last season was also a fine team. But was Conor better than Glavin? Winnall better than Aylott? Mawson or Roberts better than Mccarthy or Evans? No. Did they play better football? No. When Trevor Aylott finished he became a taxi driver. Ronnie managed Emley plus a few other roles with non league clubs. When Hourihane and Winnall etc finish they will be extremely wealthy men. Neither they or probably their kids need ever work again. And it's all at our expense. Whether it be via increased ticket prices, the pressure to buy shirts or Sky and BT subscription fees we pay. I've no grouse with modern players taking the money, they'd be stupid not to. But how did we, as fans, allow this to happen? I know it's a simplistic question but it still irks me.
