At its best, football is a glorious, uplifting, unifying sport. But it hasn't been at its best for some time. Disillusioned by corruption scandals, billionaire club owners and an ever-smaller group of title challengers, Martin Calladine drifted away from the game that had defined 25 years of his life.
