This is what football will definitely look like in 150 years’ time

1 Every game will kick off at 3am for the Chinese TV audience


The game’s gone, lads.

2 Your half-time pint will be replaced with a delicious steak and kidney pill


3 You’ll slag off BT Sport’s 18-man commentary panel

And Michael Owen’s great, great, great grandson will bore the s*** out of you.

4 New kits will come out every week

But you’ll still buy them all.

5 Players’ names are now sponsors, I’m afraid


Lionel Pepsi, Cristiano McDonalds, Carpetright Cattermole.

6 Excuses will be a little different in the future


7 And so will WAGs

Gaze into her unblinking metal eyes.


8 You *really* won’t want to play in the SolarEuropa League


Could Messi do it on a really, really, really cold night in Saturn?

9 But at least Premier League away days will be a little easier


10 You won’t complain about foreigners faking injury any more
