In football scouting is common as clubs send out representatives to watch players of their interest and give updates with detailed reports on the players form and attitude; if the scout is satisfied with the player’s ability he then makes recommendation to the interested club. In relationship, it is similar but sometimes the interested person makes the whole observation by himself. Sometimes a guy will talk his friend into helping him observe a girl of his interest hoping he return with good reports, guess you’re laughing now because you do it, well it’s not totally old school it’s just a way for you to have a clearer picture of your potential girl. But scouting through other people is not always the best way because unlike football where if the scout reports the player as having two left legs or describe Mikel Obi in the same class as Messi and Ronaldo it can be quickly authenticated by the media or a second check by the club’s chief scout. I once fell a victim of wrong scouting, many years back at night a friend of mine walked passed a girl and then said to me” O boy that chick fine die”, I hurried towards her brimming with smiles because she was indeed beautiful that night, I said “hello damsel” and she replied with a thick Yoruba accent” ti ba gba loju se o mo egbe” meaning if I slap your face, don’t you know your mate? I was shocked before I realized that she was heading towards a garage apparently to visit her boyfriend or among the girls that sells alcohol in the garage. So proper scouting is essential in a club’s bid to sign a player or in a guy desire for quality relationship.
The biggest problem of this stage is that during the scouting mission you are not the only one scouting just like in football a lot of clubs send scouts to watch a player so too a lot of guys will be watching your potential girl hoping to put in a bid to follow up their interest.
Now, if your scouting was done through the ugly friend of your potential girl then there is a high possibility that you won’t get your girl. Back in the university I liked a girl so much that I will take time out to watch her smile from a distance and when I finally decided to make my move, I discovered she had a very close friend…don’t ask me if she was pretty? All I knew was that she’s a little taller than Aki and Pawpaw and looked like Taribo West’s daughter. She denied me space and time, all I could do was admire from a far and although I eventually asked the girl out we never really concluded on anything, did I just say she said no? Nah, that’s not what happened, lol! I’m as difficult to turn down like Manchester United.
In football, the big clubs (Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United, Liverpool, Ac Milan, Juventus, Bayern Munich, Dortmund, PSG, etc.) gets the most talented players so too in a relationship the rich guys gets the beautiful girls but there are exceptions where smaller clubs get amazing talents like Swansea has Michu, Atletico Madrid with Falcao so too the smart guys can get the prettiest girls. In relationship, a lot of things go through the mind of a lady before accepting or rejecting a proposal, her welfare, the guy’s personality, religion, culture, and sexual capacity so too a player considers the new clubs philosophy, culture, his welfare, and adaptability before moving. This takes us to our next phase the transfer window.
Still more to come…watch out!
