Football Has Gone MAD!

We all love a game of football on the weekend. We love to see the stars and the expensively assembled teams....but my word! The spending has gotten out of control. Today, August 3, 2017, is the date when the most expensive transfer in football has been made. Money has been paid to Barcelona for the transfer of Neymar Jr to PSG in the full amount of 222 million Euros! Yep. Look at that figure. Now just imagine all the starving people in the world. Sigh. All money aside and the fact that Neymar is doing it for the pay. The player recently posted a video saying he wants a new challenge. Challenge???!! What challenge? The guy just went from college to preschool. No one watches the french league and I do not think PSG is ready to win the champions league. In my opinion, Neymar just did this for the money and for being the idol of a team. What do you you think though? What do you think about this amount of money being spent? Go go go go and comment :) Peace Out _I love football_

This is among the irony of our sports star crazy world on the one hand earning lots of money on the one hand and the state of world poverty on the other hand my friend.

This is when football went crazy. I belive that thier is no player worth that much money, forthemore it kills the fear play and give the advantage in the game to those team who got money. althougho Leicester city won the primer leauge trophe not long ago, I don't think that any team stand a chance against the big money football machine. now lets set back and watch if Neymar is really worth 222 milliones euro.

Football game has really gone mad indeed! Some I ask my if such money involved in transfer is real. This money could save slot of people suffering around the world. Only few of these players do remember to give back to the society.

Yes. Things could be a little better if more of them actually gave back to charity or to a community.

Way back when I used to worked at @ coffeeshop in the heart of DOHA men are really goin crazy watching their fave team playing football as PSG and BARCA as we really have that full pack customers!They go gaga over it! I wonder whats the big difference between football and basketball?

Yes @Cathy0628, it does that have that effect. I really enjoy it too. However the spending these days is ridiculous. Football is much bigger than basketball in terms of worldwide appeal and more money does go into it. The FIFA World Cup is testimony to that.
