OUR MVP – THE PURPLE BOOT


‘In the Middle of every difficulty lies Opportunity – Albert Einstein’ 


‘When you walk up to Opportunity’s door…don’t knock it. Kick that B*tch in, smile and introduce yourself – Dwayne Johnson’


Opportunities –


They present themselves to us on a daily basis and we blunder our way through our existences accepting, ignoring and creating them, but every so often an opportunity presents itself, that has such meaning that it affects not just you, not just your friends and family, but lives beyond your own recognition. It is in opportunities like these that when presented that all of us must learn to recognise them and take them…but until then, don’t undersell the bus journey to focus on the private jet!

It is the eternal conundrum, and if not the meaning of life, for it is in these moments when our lives take on meaning… There is an understanding, a sixth sense to, at first, spot these opportunities and then with no little skill, oodles of commitment and perseverance take them and be all you can be within such defining moments.  The key is understanding that these moments don’t come along once in a lifetime, but pretty much every day, and in sporting circles these moments arise all the time, and in living in each moment and being there to seize upon the chances given, is where we are all measured, by ourselves and others.

Only the worthiest of opportunists shall be deserving of placing their hands upon the Purple Boot and lifting it aloft come Sports Awards 2020.

Now I’ve got that out of my system, allow me to introduce to you the latest Leaderboards.

The MVP Formula to cross pollinate statistical information across a range of sports is a closely guarded secret and has taken a team of scientists decades to construct in a top secret base in the Alps.

The whereabouts of these scientists is currently unknown…
