Usually, it is said by a match commentator about a player who is either due to be transferred to another team or a player that knows that there is an agent from another team watching him (to see if the player is good enough to buy).
I always thought it was an overrated statement.
I mean what does the potentiality of moving to another team have anything to do with playing football?!!
The player is due to move elsewhere, so why would that affect his performance on the field and make him play worse than usual?!
Strangely enough, I’ve been waiting for a job move for 9 months now, and I have to say things now have a different view.
My mind is set on knowing the new move. The "when"s and "where"s are on my mind all the time.
All this grew on me over time. The frustration, irritation, boredom, and not being interested in anything around me here, i feel it all FULL BLAST!.
After all these years of following Football and listening to that famous comment, only now can I say: “Now I Know!”… it is soooo true!
