I am a Mum and as such, I want the best for my boys.
All three of my boys play football, the big one trains the wee one´s team, too. We´ve been part of our local football club for the best part of 17 years.
Over the past 2 years, the club worked hard to get out of the red, they have worked their buts of and they have succeeded. We (they) are in the clear, no more red figures, well deserved.
Additionally, we are “multi-culty” with loads of kids from all sorts of nationalities. And it works well, both on and off the pitch.
The point I am making is that our team has participated in a competition, 5000 € for first place, for the youth teams, 3 to 15 years I think.
Oh we could so do with the money, new goal posts, training equipment, you name it, we could do with it.
But….. we have just been kicked of 1st place and voting ends tomorrow 😦
I must have posted that voting link at least 20 to 30 times on Facebook, I will probably lose loads of “friends” in the process because lets face it, all you can see on Facebook at the moment is our link to vote and if I weren´t the one posting it, I´d get p… off about it, too.
But I want my boys to win!!!! I don´t do loosing when it comes to my boys. Every day, the wee ones ask me where we stand and yes, I know, 2nd place is good, too, but….I just wanted them to win 😦
Is it asking too much? Probably, lol, I know but still… hmpf 😦
