Would You Literally Walk To Your Dream Club?

It's a bit off-topic but just say your favourite club you dream of playing for phoned you and said 'we will give you a contract if you physically walk from your house to the ground without cheating at all' would you?
I know i would

Mine is across an ocean, but yes, I would walk across the USA, if I could get across the ocean by flying my own plane or sailing my own boat, something like that or something like that, I'd do that to say France or something and then walk to Torino for the rest of the way.

I'd swim from here to Manchester yeah, and I'd dfo that without a contract on the other side.

Then raise United's banner high,
Beneath it's shade we'll live and die,
So keep the faith and never fear,
We'll keep the Red Flag flying here.

Conidering it's only 40 miles down the M6, I could be there in time for tomorrow's training session.

I sprint there , and then when I got tired I would jog and then walk and then crawl , after that I should be good enough physical shape to play.

yep

Da volim CRNO-BELE,
Ja ponosno kazem svima,
Ja volim to slavno ime,
I divim se samo njima.
Na svetu nista lepse,
Ne moze da postoji,
Nego sto je nasa ljubav,
Prema CRNO-BELOJ boji.

Ljubav prema klubu,
Ne moze da prestane,
Dok zivim klicacu njemu,
Volim te Partizane.

i'd need a boat (yes, i'd row), but yeah.

whether or not they'd still want me i dont know, it'd probably take me 20 years to get there.

might be able to slide into the back line

I'd run, a walk would take to long. Also that would make me better prepared

Hell yes! I'd have to take a boat or plane across the Atlantic and then I'd walk the rest of the way from the airport or the seashore/seaport.
