Do Your Talking On The Pitch
Feature by Adam Bryant

My football club is barely recognisable these days. I don't mean because of the football currently being played by Brendan Rodgers' men, although one or two of those performances leave a lot to be desired. I mean because of everything else off the field
I don't want to see the wall of my manager's house being adorned with a huge picture of himself. What the hell does that say about the man who I am struggling to believe is the right one to lead us back to glory?
I don't want to watch my club's managing director walk out of his swanky city centre office and turn into an camp impersonation of Marlon Brando in Easy Rider. I don't care what he gets up to when he's not doing what the club pay him for.
I don't want to see players introducing their families to worldwide television audience in scenes reminiscent of the X-Factor contestants' life journeys. If we want to 'raise our profile' lets do it on the football field, by winning games and leagues and trophies.
