    Holiday lets. Not like Brendan Rogers.

    He lives over the hill from me in Holmfirth. A real character by all accounts.

    Robbie Fowler is big in to property development and letting. He has quite a number of properties to his name, and a reported wealth of over £30m, which is pretty impressive for a player who's career fell just short of the mad amounts of money that entered the game. He sounds like a smart lad. Does loads of charity work too. Good egg.

    Lee Bowyer now runs a carp fishing lake in France iirc, read an article about it a while ago.... Also just remembered that fight with Dyer, what a shambles, hilarious though.

    From his Wiki,

    There's a few more articles which are more in depth though I think that are an interesting read.

    Dig at City fans who spent months salivating at the thought of signing Pogba, then once he was United bound started calling him Carlton Palmer.

    In fairness, there is some resemblance.
