Midweek Sport - - NEWS - By NEIL GOOD­WIN

SEX, drugs and rock ’n roll don’t al­ways spring to mind when you think of to­day’s pro­fes­sional foot­ballers.

The Football League is lit­tered with pam­pered prima don­nas who’d rather set­tle down with a hot Horlicks than blow off steam at a wild party full of hot girls.

But in years gone by, the beau­ti­ful game has pro­duced more than its fair share of vi­o­lent nut-jobs, randy rebels and pea­cock­ing play­boys – many of them world-class play­ers too!

To tie in with the start of the football sea­son, we’re launch­ing our new Head The Balls fea­ture, where ev­ery week we’ll be look­ing at one of the sport’s most men­tal mav­er­icks.

And we’re get­ting things un­der way with one of the best – Frank Wor­thing­ton!
