Perhaps cakewalk wasn't the best term to use, but let's not take everything out of context over one word.

Being a footballer is easy (not surprisingly or absurdly so perhaps) compared to having a 'normal' job. Being good at football isn't easy but if you are lucky enough to have the talent and apply yourself to it as a trade it is an easier ride than doing a 'normal' job. That isn't saying players don't work hard, but the whole package of being a footballer is a lot easier to swallow than any 9-5 let's face it.

Lots of people pay money to go to the gym, make sure they eat right and are in good physical shape etc. Footballers are being paid to do this and getting to play football ultimately. Players aren't always in peak physical condition and as we saw last night definitely aren't always at the peak of their ability.

Money in football isn't solely about how dedicated someone is, it's about how good you are and ultimately it's a supply and demand business. People pay to go and watch giving the club a certain amount to spend on wages (plus sponsorship, tv money where applicable and so on). There will be players in semi-pro football who are more dedicated to the game than Premier League players but ultimately the professional player is so because he is better. If people stopped attending there would be less money for wages, it doesn't mean the players we could afford would be less dedicated necessarily, just perhaps not as good as footballers.

The fans are part and parcel of the job. If you do your job badly you'll get criticised. The nature of sport is that people will be judging you on your performance, there's nowhere to hide. I think we've been (now and always) very patient as a fan base. There was disquiet last night but nothing compared to some clubs and we're over half way through a season of pretty dismal performances.
