One of the main reasons English football fans have fallen back in love with the national team is the fact the current group of players are so likeable.

It’s good that Alli doesn’t forget his roots, remembering the guys he left behind on his rise to the top.

Saved you a click.
“Has treated four of his close friends to “an all-expenses paid holiday of a lifetime” in Los Angeles and Ibiza.

The mates he has taken include footballers he played alongside when he was young but failed to make the grade.”

I think that although a lot of players would rather this is kept private, stories like this can only help raise the public opinion of them.

People just assume they all earn money they're not worth and do nothing of value with it.
I don't believe that's the case a lot of the time.

I think this is quite common, especially at PL level. People who are used to expensive tastes others cant afford and/or need/want the privacy of VIP status, but want a holiday with mates, many in 'normal' backgrounds, and so end up paying for everything.

I've heard a couple of stories where a player has footed a bill for the whole group that is the best part of six figures.

I can confirm this based on the industry I'm in. Obscene figures paid by footballers just so they can have a holiday with their family or mates.

My other half earns 3 times my salary. She wants expensive holidays so she pays.
I'd be happy with bognor tbh.

I like expensive holidays, i'll takle one for the team and go with her when you go to Bognor if you like.
Fucking hell yeah.

I probably should have mentioned we have a 2 year old, the wife spends a week packing, steels all my case space as she has to take EVERYTHING, she only seems to like long flights at horrible times and she does the square route of fuck all with the 2 year old as she's asleep the whole flight.

Can I tell her you're still up for it?
