Fernando Torres

Wait, this really has nothing to do with me battling my personal demons, but rather of tonight’s (or early morning, depending on where you are) Europa league game between FC Utrecht and Liverpool FC, my beloved Reds.

In other words, mind your own business is the mantra that I’m preaching here, dear Torres and Co.

There’s no other bigger news than 18yr Old Jumps after roommate live-streamed  sex video secretly Liverpool FC’s on-going ownership drama, thrusted even more into the limelight with Hollywood A-lister’s not-so-secret movie regarding the boardroom’s very public cleaning of dirty laundry.

And issues like that do get to players’ head as they ponder of the club’s securities, or worse, their own securities.

Anyway, as a professional (footballer), you’re paid to do a job, so you do a job to the best of your ability, because that’s what professionalism is all about.

It’s not easy to say that emotional quotient is merely myth, because we’re all humans, and humans have emotions — be it a professional footballer or an amateur footballer on a Sunday morning.

But no matter what happens on the pitch, the boardroom won’t get affected by it, not much that is, so why let it bother you, as a player?

I do hope that my Reds will release themselves from the shackles of club-ownership drama and for once in a long while, start enjoying their football.

Seriously, it’s been a long while since I’ve seen them enjoy their football, and being one myself, I can sense when someone’s enjoying their football or not.

Judging by their recent performance, Liverpool have been weighed down badly by recent events, or non-events, and I guess that they’re allowing things to get to them.

I know, I know, I know that many things affect the way we perform our lives, so I suppose  it’s not wrong to say that sometimes we let things get to us.

So chill out Reds, forget your problems for 90minutes, and please, please, please just enjoy your football.

Everything else is nothing to be concerned with.
