    where did he get the idea from!!!!!

    A professional footballer is launching a website aimed at helping fellow players avoid being ripped off or getting bad service.

    Middlesbrough defender Andrew Taylor came up with the idea after being dissatisfied with a company that installed an audio system in his home.

    Platinum Players will feature companies that offer "luxury lifestyle products" - from cars and gadgets to hotels and restaurants - which have been vetted and deemed "trustworthy" for the stars.

    There are also jewellers, financial advisers and lawyers - most of whom have been used by the left-back, or recommended to him by other players.

    The UK's 4,000 professional footballers will be sent log-in details for the invitation-only site.

    Mr Taylor, 23, has funded the project from his own wages, and will earn income from listing fees and advertising charges paid by the companies it features.
