Sad to read that former Wolves legend and all-round top bloke, George Ndah, has been declared bankrupt.
Seems he's a "football consultant" now (Pretty much like the rest of us).
Second negative story for recent-ish Wolves players, with Michael McIndoe in court over an alleged scam.

I always like to read about what footballers have gone on to do after playing. Bit of a saddo, I know, but it's one of the first things I read in the Football League paper every week.

I often wondered what happened to that Paul Jewell after he finished with Bradford, tbh.

One of our best loved ex-players, Keith Eswards, is now a lorry driver and 'expert summariser' for our games

Cant imagine footballers nowadays will have to get into lorry driving when they retire

Looking through the Football League papers, a lot seem to go on to become publicans or firemen.

Opposing the pedestrianisation of Norwich city centre!!!!
Dunno if anyone remembers the first Brazlian to play in England. His name was Mirandinha and he played for Newcastle. He was really good, when he left Newcastle he went back to Brazil and basically his life crashed and burned. I know this because the Legendinho told me when I phoned Dotun's world football phone in once :2thumb:

Just shows how times have changed. Neil Webb played for Man U back in the day. Imagine a player who's with a club of that magnitude having to be a postie nowadays when they retire.

Yea crazy, 26 England caps. Time towards the top of the English leagues with Manchester United and Nottingham Forest winning several cup competitions yet after his career has been a postman and a programme seller at the Madejski.

Neil Webb works for a transport business now apparantly.Doing better than some former footballers from the 80s/90s such as Kenny Sansom who is now homeless and then you have Arjan De Zeeuw who is now a detective.

Hasn't Arjan De Zeeuw also taken at least part of a medical degree?

After Dean Glover got sacked he started a window cleaning business but has managed to worm his way back into the club.

Allen Tankard runs a local transport business. Some lads at work used the company to travel to the races, as most were Stoke fans they gave him grief the whole way. He took it very well and was giving it them back.

Stuff like this interests me too.

I read somewhere that he gave up half way through his medical degree to join the police.

Former Wimbledon player Peter Fear is living in his hometown of Sutton and working as a taxi driver.

A few years back he phoned in and took part in Ken Bruce's Popmaster quiz on Radio 2. I heard him introduce himself so I popped onto our guestbook to let others know. He had a few Dons cheering him on that day.

'Following his retirement in 2009, De Zeeuw began working as an investigative detective, specialising in forensics and stating PCR was among his most loved techniques.'
