People dont want to know us. They dont want to know we exist. We have all committed horrendous crimes, and they arent going to understand why were allowed to play football. But its the only thing that makes our lives bearable. We play in a local league - home games only - and it doesnt matter then who you are or what youve done, you can still be a hero on match day.
