LOL.

Silly c***. He'll still have a lifestyle that most of society aspires to despite announcing himself bankrupt. How someone can earn so much and not make a return is beyond. The easiest thing in the world is making money off of money, proper mug if you can't manage something so simple.

All he needs to do is get himself an agent that'll sort him out some TV work. Any fucker seems to be able to do that.





Don't they Robbie?

It's not amusing at all, but certainly not unusual and it will become far more common in years to come.

For American sportsmen there was a documentary on a few years demonstrating huge numbers of them go bankrupt shortly after retirement. The primary reasons - lack of education, presence of leeches and awful investments in bars and restaurants - could easily be applied to the majority of footballers. A fool and his money etc.

Someone like Wayne Rooney would surely be a stick on - I hope he is getting good advice, but University Challenge candidate he is not.

He's clearly been miss sold investments down the years, and that isn't something to celebrate. It's not like he'll have stuck £27m in his current account and then spent it all on beer hookers and drugs off his debt card.

When you look at the pictures pro footballers put on social media, you see huge house, very expensive cars, clothes watches etc, so it's no surprise that when they retire and the money stops flowing in that they can't maintain the same standard of living. I wonder how much the PFA does to advise players that they need to plan thoroughly for the future, I don't think it can be left up to the players themselves or agents and clubs.

I think it is some form of natural reaction for the majority of 'working class' people to enjoy the misfortune of those who are so much better off so not surprising that people on here are laughing about it.

Doesn't really bother me either way but I think Mark is probably right in that he's unlikely have stuck it all on red and black came up. Unfortunately for footballers, there are far too many financial 'advisers' feeding them that much bullshit that more and more of them will end up being stung by sticking their money into investments which ultimately fail. I would hope that the PFA are working behind the scenes to educate players on this

Rich people shouldn't have sympathy because some people are poor.

Indeed.

There was an admin on TFF who was named Stuwilky. When Neill left Blackburn for West Ham he started dubbing him Lucash Neill. A nickname that is looking very apt right now.
