    I do feel so sorry for Gascoigne - the player of his generation in this country and yet had the intelligence and common sense of a walnut.

    Exactly

    Wilf Zaha of Crystal Palace donetes a sizeable chunk of his wages to two orphanages in the Ivory Coast every moth (one of them is run by his sister).

    Never heard of Lepidoptera cycle salaries. Is this just footballers?
