Whatever will be will be, the future’s not ours to see ……………
Lyle Taylor is a very intelligent articulate bloke and a bloody good striker and listening to him it is not difficult to understand his point about risking his future big pay day by potentially getting injured in the last month of the season.
It seems to me that the only (enormous) flaw in his argument was that he was happy to wander off to Montserrat mid season and jeopardize his career, future earnings and put a fairly large nail in our potential relegation coffin by potentially getting injured – which he did.
Had he have done the sensible thing at that time and decided to stay in the UK for the sake of his future career and his employer,then, in all likelihood we wouldn’t be facing the situation we have now. He did all that to represent a country that has a total of 5,000 inhabitants, all of whom we could accomodate in the Covered End even if they all turned up. Given what a potential relegation is going to cost the club, we would have been much better off sending every one of the islanders £100 for a great night out.
