Imagine a world without football? I know, it’s scary. But what’s even scarier is that the Premier League stars we know and love would all be searching for jobs like you and me. No scouts, youth academies or agents, just a good ole’ CV. In this column, we provide insight into what those job applications would actually look like. This is ‘Premier League CVs’.
In this moment, I am the best, for sure. For this year I’ve been number one. Throughout my career I’ve always been at the top and in this moment I’m as successful as I have ever been.

It took a long time, for sure, but I did it. I completed law school with a bang. When I finished I was ready to enter the big wide world of law and really go heavy metal. During my studies a focused my attention on a career in criminal law, helping the accused get acquitted of guilt through my ability to point blame at others.

To whom it may concern,
I started law school in 1987, learning everything I could about criminal law from some of Germany’s top legal experts. I was young, for sure, but there was a great fire burning inside of me. In 2001 I graduated and then BANG, it was time to play.
In this moment I was great friends with a professor of mine, and he invited me to join his law firm, 05 Law in Mainz. It was a good job, but not heavy metal enough for me. I wanted something crazy, you know?
Then I joined BVB Legal Services and wow, it was big. Huge. Exceptional. The law firm was incredible. I was able to assist with some top top cases, including two case in 2011 and 2012. I was defending a client against some Bavarian prosecutors. Their record was impeccable, for sure, but I toppled them. I almost won a class action lawsuit involving defendants from across Europe, but evidence from those Bavarian prosecutors blew up our case at the last hurdle.
It wasn’t long before I was asked to join Fenway & Werner Law as a Senior Partner. The firm was not doing well, for sure, but it used to be so great. Huge, even. So I joined them and helped bring them back to greatness with the help of a big budget.
The firm is now the greatest in the world, for sure. Of course, we have not won a case yet, but that has no consequence. The courtrooms we have worked in have been a bit drafty, so there was no way of determining if the adjudication process was fair. But my lawyers are happy, and I give them massive hugs, even if we lose. It’s fantastic, but we must focus on winning, for sure.
In this moment life is great but perhaps I need a change of scenery. I miss winning, for sure, and with the current conditions at Fenway & Werner it is not a possibility. If you want me, a heavy metal lawyer, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
