  • David James & Julian Dicks are two I can think of.
  • Lee Hendrie
  • Something in the back of my mind says Lisbie but might be making that up
  • Keith Gillespie was made bankrupt too
  • Paul Merson
  • Didn't Brad Friedel go bankrupt a couple of years ago, something to do with his soccer schools in the US.
  • Get no sympathy from me, their own fault regardless of any bad advice.
  • How far back we going? There's a long history of it.

    Kenny Sansom?

    He didn't ear a fraction of Prem players though.

    They should be made for life but spend it as quick as they earn it.

    A lot of pros got their fingers burnt in (fake) investment schemes.

    I must be mistaken.

    Any chance you could provide a link to the article?

    Thanks.
  • John Barnes?
  • Jason Euell did. A property investment deal went pear shaped.
    Rufus. God judged him though so it's ok

    Even former Rotherham winger Ben Pringle did - he's taken up journalism ;-)
  • Wasn't Lucas Neill the highest paid Australian sportsman when he was at West Ham ?

    Maybe highest paid footballer though there are a couple more who would be up there but we have a couple of NBA players earning a lot more and also a couple of F1 drivers though not both at the same time

  • Wot not owr arfur? I dint Adam an eve it

    (I haven't watched Eastenders since around the time of Arfur, but even then I don't recall any use of Cockney rhyming slang in the program. Any suggestions appreciated)
