A few weeks ago Crewe manager David Attwell gave he's players a choice, your either footballers or potential milkman.It made me wonder how many players plying their trade in league two and especially Crawley Town are actually talented enough to call themselves professional footballers???

Indeed. Shafquat Majeed once called himself a 'businessman'. That was just as bizarre.

As things stand, how many of our squad are here as footballers next season, and who could potentially *beep* off and do a milk round??

Considering that the vast majority of milkmen have been made redundant over the last few years, I reckon the players should be thinking more about the shelves at Tesco

Doing a Knowlesy, eh?

I'm not sure that some of our players have the talent to be milkmen, so maybe they better keep trying to play football.

What makes you think they'd deliver milk any better than they deliver through-balls and crosses?

I would be careful as to who is criticised as a footballer. There have been, and still are, many instances where a player has left us as a dud and turned out to be a player very capable of playing at a higher league.

Sure there are a few duds, but a lot of the time it is about the team surrounding him and the tactics of the manager/coach that pulls him down.

What you're trying to say is the cream always rises to the top.
