When things aren’t going well with your favorite sportsball team, as fans it becomes far too easy to get caught in a doom spiral. Things don’t go well on the field of play, so we expect that bad things will always follow from that — the results will never improve, the dressing room will fall apart, the manager will leave or get fired…
…Your homegrown generational talent will want to leave.
But sometimes things defy expectations in the most amazing ways. Take Harry Kane, for example. How many of us, looking at the flaming dumpster fire that is Tottenham Hotspur over the past few months, looked at Harry, his expiring contract, and his past agitation to yeet himself to Manchester City and thought There’s no way he signs a new deal at Spurs, we should sell him and rebuild the club from the ground up? I bet it’s a lot. I certainly have!
