PFA guidance needed, not glitz
It seems that we are annoying a few people at the Professional Footballers’ Association, who have taken exception to our monthly picture tweets of their magazine. So, this month, I vowed to show the PFA in all its glory and tell you all about the great work that they do. But then I opened the magazine and that’s where things started to go wrong.
For those of you who are new to this monthly publication, let me explain. This magazine is sent out to all professional footballers at every professional club. It doesn’t matter if that player earns £200,000 per week or £200 per week; it is read by 35-year-old players who have won the Champions League and 18-year-old kids starting out in the Conference.
I believe that the type of content in this magazine is not what should be slapped under the noses of impressionable young kids. For me, the magazine reads as if it is endorsing the trappings of playing football, through advertisements dressed up as features, instead of being a publication that offers help and guidance.
I have no problem with the PFA, only their magazine. Those are my opinions, here are this month’s pictures. Judge for yourself.
It’s that time of the month again…
