    Living the life of a footballer would be a nightmare for me. Couldn't stand to be famous.

    Ok so the fame would suck, but;

    Great wages
    You're kept fit
    Competitive, so you won't lose interest
    You get to play a game that you like to play anyway, and get paid for it.

    Re: What if you had to choose a wish?

    didnt he say that you could have the talent of someone... so just because you have a footballers skills doesnt mean you will get picked up...

    how many people have th talent to do something but get overlooked!


    alot!

    so having a footballers skills doesnt necessarily mean rich and famous... could be good and homeless

    Exactly, I gave quite some thought into the wishes actually, they all have different takes and catches, I just wanted to see the choices people are willing to make, helps understand better...

    as for those who think ive been smoking something and posting ....if its that bad, ill stop!

    This gold... is it the value of gold, or actual gold? If it's like a slab of gold, you could keep it until the value rises
