Come on Djimi sort it out fella!

Come on Djimi sort it out fella!

He earns more in a week than I could probably dream to earn in a year, yet Djimi Traore had still been threatened by the bailiffs that his car would be confiscated if he does not pay up the £2,000 he owed in council tax.

What's this all about? Come on Djimi times cannot be that hard fella that you cannot afford a couple of grand, you could always visit your former Liverpool team mate John Arne Riise for a sub if needed...

I am not going to get into this 'footballers get paid too much money' and all this rubbish, blah, blah, blah as you can argue that for most walks of life but with him earning around £80,000 - if not more - per month this would be pocket change to him surely, after all he lives in an apartment at Gunwharf!

He is a craft sod though, as in order to make sure that he did not have his car clamped at the Pompey training ground he got one of his Pompey team mates to drop him to training! For whatever reason he was not paying it, but he is not stupid is he, even though his comical own goal a few years back would suggest otherwise...

Apparently he has agreed to now pay the bill by credit card, after several reminders and a court summons - incredible.

not being funny but how can a fella that is earning 80 grand - or more - a month not afford to pay a 2 grand bill... he is a crafty sod tho isnt he and not as stupid as he might look, by not taking his own car to training - so in that respect he has gone up in my estimations as a genius...

Well done Djimi just like others before ya, you take the ***** by not doing what 99% of the people who pay through the nose with their hard earned cash to come and see you play have to do month in month out. I don't care what your reasons are I have to pay it so why the ***** can't you ...*****er! ... ((Sorry fellas, bit strong I know but this kinda thing really makes me mad - It shows complete and utter contempt to the working may on the street i.e. me !... He's gone so far down in my estimation as a person... I hope he leaves in January))
