It doesn't seem quite fair that Christian Benteke has played 200+ games and his brother came in for 5 minutes, yet his brother is still spoken in the same breath as the Toures and Nevilles.
It is like saying that Alan Shearer and Noel Edmonds have 260 premier league goals between them.
I did google this as I had no idea there was another Benteke or Riise and interesting this (https://www.givemesport.com/1630811-premier-league-the-46-pairs-of-brothers-who-have-both-played-in-englands-top-flight) mentions Kieron and Nathan Dyer in the top 10. I'm pretty sure they are not brothers...
Yeah, I'd never have got Benteke or Riise. I doubt I'd have thought of the Gardners either, Craig Gardner must be one of the most forgettable players to rack up over 250 Premier League games.
When it was on the radio someone rang in and guessed the Dyer brothers and I thought 'I didn't even know they were brothers', but the hosts just went 'No, they're not on the list' without questioning if they were actually brothers or not. I'm guessing they're not...
Surprised to see the Cole brothers Andy and Ashley are not included. It must be because it was only for pairs of brothers so they're ruled out because of Carlton.....
Some odd quotes from Conte about Spence when he joined, seemed to be implying he didn't really want him.
For any fantasy footballists on here the Sun, Sky, and Telegraph games are out. Weird seeing the Forest players there. I think the last time I had a Forest player it would have been Collymore. He scored to win me Manager of the month in The Mirror
Good to see all the football called off. Couldn't possibly enjoy a game of football without knowing the Queen is okay. I wouldn't want to do anything in any way social, fun, enjoyable, or interesting so will be sitting in an uncomfortable chair and staring at the wall while thinking about the Her Majesty for a week. Pleased others are being encouraged to do the same.
Does anybody else feel concerned about the number of clueless Yanks in charge of Premier League clubs. They seem to understand nothing about football and think emulating shitty US sports is the way to go. A Las Vegas consortium appears to be bidding for Bournemouth.
I'm not sure the American ones are any worse than most of them. A bit more more embarrassing maybe but as long as it's at other clubs I'm not really bothered. That new Chelsea guy has got some entertainment value at least - you wouldn't get Abramovich boasting about their great academy players like Salah and De Bruyne..
Well, that's two matches played in three weeks so it must be time for a fortnights break. Even when we're desperately cramming a World Cup into the middle of the season there's still no stopping these International breaks
