Im lazy im the first to admit it so if you think im trawling through 27 pages to see if my idea's come up before forget it.
So...may only be me, may not be.
Ive had a player for 10 years, (ive had many players for long times im using one as an example) he is going to retire in the summer.
Its the last home game of the season and i always play him as a send off too him in front of the home fans, or the cup final i make room for him on the bench to give him a last hurrah.
Now, my idea would be along the lines of a media thing saying its his final game at the club blah blah blah, how many games he has played goals scored etc etc.
Will you be playing him? Will he be on the bench?
Are you not a sentimental person? etc etc
Maybe a slightly larger crowd to take this into account especially if he has been at the club donkeys years and if a club fave.
Then after the game another media thingmy maybe along the lines of answering, he has been a great player for the club! or something.
Idea came to me in a drunken state so maybe its a crap idea.
I like it anyway.
