Lend Us A Fiver...

Post by PieEater on Sun Nov 22, 2009 11:49 am

A court has heard that former Newcastle United striker Obafemi Martins was broke despite earning £75,000-a-week wages.

The 25-year-old is being sued by his former agent, Chris Nathaniel, whose company NVA claims it gave him cash advances and helped manage aspects of his life.

£300,000 a month just doesn't seem enough does it?

I mean personally, a mortgage plus council tax and insurance etc accounts for approximately £800 per month. Add on to that travel to and from work, increased utilities bills and I don't see much change out of £1100.


It is claimed that Martins was constantly overdrawn, regularly blowing £40,000 in a weekend and then drawing out another £25,000 on Monday.

Easily done Obafemi, this weekend alone I spent £130 on a new loft hatch, some plasterboard and arcatrave. Morrisons accounted for £40, The Works upwards of £3 and a local florist £7.

£40k in a weekend, easy. It's not like he ever had a job to do at the weekend is it?

I suppose, to summarise, footballers are not paid enough and the issue needs to be addressed right away!

It's a real shame for the guy. I think Newcastle should have to pay him compensation for depriving his human rights.

What a total cunt. He will probably die of old age soon anyway, the stupid mercenary twat.


Decent article, Pie. I totally understand/empathise with that kind of budget. Even worse when you have a kid or two and they want all the latest shit because some other kid has it.

Clearly NVA weren't managing Martins' finances. Maybe if they had been they'd have got paid.

You saying my Dad is stupid willy?

To be fair to Martins he doesn't even know how old so cannot be expected to manage his finances

Prob about a month ago, turned on the local news one day and they had interviews with "ordinary geordie folk" otherwise known as pissheads who cant speak properly, who were vowing never to drink NBA again. The presenters then decided to take the piss out of geordies, well as much as local news presenters at 6:30 can.
