    Default Is is there are any loyalty left in football?

    First it's fabregas and now james milner that wants out of their club.Milner says he doesn't know where he will be next year even though he has 2 years left on his contract.Have most footballers become mercenaries just interested who offers the most money at the expense of winning trophies.
    I have lived a life of regrets.

    Milneer saying that is as good as saying he wants to leave. As soon as their head is turned that's it. Contracts mean nothing. City are supposed to have made enquiries about Ashley Young too when they asked about Milner. If those 2 leave Martin O'Neills not going to stick around.

    For a long time now money has been the real motivator - if you can win a trophy good but most view winning as the way to increase their value. Loyalty is seen as for fools - there are a few exceptions but money is ruining the game.

    not a sausage of loyalty in any of them . as the Old Trafford chant goes, --Steve Gerrard Gerrard, he kisses the badge on his chest, then hands in a transfer request, Steve Gerrard Gerrard

    No. That is all.
    Though we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are; one equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

    Gone are the likes of Giggs who chooses to stay at the same club.
    No one made transfer requests for him as they knew it would have been pointless.
    I think a contract should mean for the length of time that they signed for, but it's two way street, clubs should also respect contracts too.

    In the case of Milner & Fabregas, they are not winning trophies where they are at the moment.

    There was interest from Italy at one stage in the Nineties, but Giggs wasn't interested in leaving. A true Red legend.
