The Ship Be Sinking

Mouth Almighty

How does this happen?

A third-division match in Bulgaria got called off when one team was reduced to six guys.

Here’s what I don’t understand – you’re a third-division team in Bulgaria. The bulk of your squad is probably already semi-professional at best to begin with…so how is it that they started the match with 8 players? Would it really be that much of a step down if they held open tryouts and signed some dudes on short-term contracts?

Look, I’m a rec-league goalkeeper who, because of height issues, has no business trying to defend a regulation-sized net. But, if some team from the 7th tier or whatever of the USL wanted me to fill in on an emergency basis and threw $10 or $15 at me to cover the embarrassment, I WOULD DO IT IN A FUCKING HEARTBEAT.

Even worse, the 8 they started with went down to 6 because of injuries…who are these guys, Arsenal’s feeder club?
