If you won the lottery, what football dreams would you make come true? What would you do with the money? Would you buy a club, give it to your favorite team so they could buy a player, or would you use it for something else football-related?
Yesterday, an EPL Talk reader named Mike posed the question and said he would bring Walthamstow Avenue, a non-league team back to life. The team were in existence from 1900 until they dissolved in 1966.
For me, I have to go with a childhood dream of mine. Ever since I can remember, I’ve always dreamt of building a real football stadium in my backyard. First, I’ve had to have to yard big enough to hold a full-sized pitch and stadium. The ground would be a modern non-league variety. Small stands around the pitch. My own ground to practice playing football and to invite my friends over for games.
The dream seems ridiculous now, but it’s not so far fetched. Iron Maiden bassist Steve Harris, now a Florida resident, has a soccer pitch in his backyard. While he doesn’t have a stadium around it, he does have an authentic pub which he built in his house. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday afternoon, eh?
Let’s hear what you would do with your lottery money and how you would spend it on something football-related. Click the comments link below. I look forward to reading your responses.
