It was firstly about the cost, which made me feel detached from the game, but it was more about value. Football made me feel ripped off more often than not. But now, I'm genuinely starting to dislike the game that gave me my first heroes, the game that I spent so much time playing, watching and talking about it. The news that Wonga, the loan company with the outrageous interest rates, had bought the naming rights to Newcastle United's Sports Direct Arena has probably sealed the deal for me.
