Last quote by Michael Calvin

Safeguarding has improved exponentially, but there is still massive exploitation. What is the cost of the dream? We've got vulnerable children and concerned parents, is football doing the right thing by them? I suppose as questions like these multiply, I hope the book can be a catalyst for that kind of debate.feedback

Michael Calvin has most recently been quoted in an article called The nightmares that lurk beneath the football dream laid bare in ‘No Hunger for Paradise’. Michael Calvin said, “We're dealing with very young lives, with immature bodies and half-formed characters and it's not something football can take lightly. It makes me think, what is football doing to our kids? Is it worth the fractured families I've found? Is it worth the blighted lives it can create? Is it worth the almost full commoditisation of childhood? Football has got a huge duty of care, but I don't think the game has applied that with due attention.”. Michael Calvin has been quoted a grand total of 6 times in 1 article.
