Just for the record - the definition of cakewalk is:

noun: cake-walk
an absurdly or surprisingly easy task.
"winning the league won't be a cakewalk for them"

Therefore you have claimed that being a footballer is not just easy, but surprisingly easy, compared to other jobs - I would suggest that being in peak physical and mental condition for 9 out of 12 months of the year, performing at the peak of your ability, in front of howling, sneering, swearing, abusing crowds, yet alone the hours of training, conditioning, preparation and practice that is required is by no means easier than 100% of the office jobs I have done, working in a call centre, building site, being a driver or a million and 1 other jobs.

This belief that because they get paid well (and even in League 2 they get paid well) that therefore the job is easy is a myth. The reason that they are paid well is because they have the dedication and commitment to put up with this day in day out. And the better they are at dealing with it, the better paid they become and the higher they play.

Our players are league 2 level. They can perform well, but not as consistently as a league 1 player and so on. On top of that, they are mostly kids. They need experience, or experienced heads around them, and at the moment we do not have that.

I'm not defending them though - Last night was abysmal. In the first half it felt like no one knew where they were supposed to play, and in the second half it felt like a pre season friendly that didn't matter. but be honest - if every time you were having a bad day at work and 2000 people turned up to moan at you - it may affect your continued performance as well.
