I’m a bit tired of New Year’s resolutions. You make them up after seven drinks too many, promising a new start and a positive you. Well you could have decided to take a positive step forward in mid-July.
Footballers are the same and shouldn’t really wait about for a specific time of day to really pull their socks up. But it’s ‘traditional’ to think of it in this way, so after all the holiday weight is shed, what surprising performances could be in store as we head into the new year?
Well a fair few shot stoppers need to start earning their pay in the manner in which their pay packet suggests; they’re all certainly not car salesmen. How about scoring a few goals from the strikers? Or what about playing well for at least a month before attaching your name to European giants in the gossip pages?
Everyone needs a good 2013, otherwise what’s the point? But this hatful need to start proving their worth on a consistent basis.
