I hear now that nobody has won the Euromillions lottery for a few weeks and after multiple rollovers the jackpot now looks to be a massive £66,000,000, you simply cannot imagine winning that amount.

If you won this amount and decided you wished to invest it in a high interest account, after taxes you would receive approximately £63,500 every week if you chose to put it all away.

So, if you were lucky enough to be the sole lottery winner and win one of the largest prizes ever to be given out in Europe, you would still be receiving less per week than Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand is commanding on his new contract.

The greedy bugger is demanding £120,000 on his new contract and if not offered looks to go elsewhere to some other club stupid enough to meet his gluttonous wages.


It’s a sad fact but money is killing football. Most of the fans spend their hard earned money on these players who earn more in a week than they do across 10 whole years.

To stop it getting truly out of hand and killing off the beautiful game, Fifa must take a leaf from out of The National Hockey League’s book and cap all players wages, I suggest £50k a week, which is still more than enough for anybody but not a ridiculous and sickening amount.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
