Last time I saw Gibson he had piled on the weight..  Didn't he get into some bother at Everton? and get sacked/released or something because of it?  Or it might have been drink driving or something..  i am sure he was in the papers for the wrong reasons at some point

It was drink driving, talk of him going down as second time in 3 years he got caught.

Not sure whether this is wrong or right, but Borussia Dortmund apparently agreed to pay Birmingham £30m for the 16 year old Jude Bellingham (I assume this is going to be split over all manner of stage payments, performance related etc?).

Seems more and more young players choosing Germany as a better option than the PL.

Because they can get game time and are given time to develop without the ridiculous over hyping we have in this country. Sensible move. He was linked to Man Utd in Jan, with talk of a loan back to Brum, presume that fizzled out.

Great deal for both parties so long as the cap doesn't come down. He'll be underpaid in 2-3 years.

Ooof nice work if you can get it.

I think I heard his contract is linked to the cap too?? Protects him if it increases and the chiefs if it decreases (must be a decent chance of that happening with everything else thatís going on)

No one needs that amount of money. Especially a sportsperson. Tell me, what the highest amount a Brain, Heart or Spinal Surgeon (even a private one) is on?

We aspire to be the wrong people and such their inflationary wage keeps on inflating. I'm not blaming the individual but society and media is the reasons Doctors are paid so much less than most sports stars and "celebrities".

Sorry, fucks me right off. Another thing wrong with our selfish species.

I have always thought similar, particularly NHS staff who are criminally underpaid.

I work in the Finance sector and some of the wages people are earning is absolutely prepostorous based on the 'importance' of what they do, when nurses working 12-16 hour days consistently earn very poorly.

Sadly I can't see society changing anytime soon.

It will only go one way BO, unfortunately. We are ultimately a self destructive species though. If we don't destroy ourselves then we will (are) destroy(ing) the planet.

No wonder some are so keen to colonise the Moon and then eventually Mars. Research aside, others will leave Earth when it's raped and fucked beyond recognition. There seems to be no lessons being learnt, just a solution of "let's find another planet/Moon we can colonise and mine the fuck out of" and so the cycle continues. Bet the flora and fauna can't wait for us to finally disperse.

There are some good humans though  Wink
