Today, January 23, is my birthday and to celebrate, I wanted to start a competition!
What famous footballers share your birthday?
For my birthday, I have:
Eusébio
Arjen Robben
Ruben Loftus Cheek
Jose Enrique
Joe Ledley
Dong Fangzhuo
Bob Paisley

Other notable Non-footballers:
Tiffani Amber Theissen
Frances McDormand
John Hancock
Richard Dean Anderson
Tito Ortiz
Rutger Hauer
Princess Caroline
Eduoard Manet
Ewen Bremner

Just missing:
Luis Suarez (24th)
Xavi (25th)
Shane Long (22nd)

Anyone have a better “birthday” lineup?

...yes, I’m bored and I wanted to create attention for my birthday since I’ll be spending it alone, 3,000 miles away from my family and friends:angel:

Edit: see thread mark below and build a 5 a-side team, with 1 non-footballer allowed.

Thanks!
I am left footed, but I have a full head of hair, so not Robben!
I’d like to say Eusébio but I’m probably closer to Dong, talent wise :lol: :lol: unless you mean who I physically look like! Then it would be none of the above.
Character? Maybe Ewen Bremner (he played football in Trainspotting, so he counts?)

Ian Rush and Michel Vorm. Shite.

Share a birthday with Snoop, though. Doesn't get much cooler than that.

Would be interesting to see which day of the year could build the strongest XI.

Happy birthday!

Mine's on the 19th of April. I share my birthday with Rivaldo, Joe Hart, Nick Pope and Marko Arnautovic. I mostly relate to Rivaldo as I also like to cry on the floor after a minor inconvenience.

Nice, now let’s do a thread about which famous footballers share the same maiden name as your mother and the footballers you went to school with.

This is what I’m hoping to see/find out.
maybe we’d have to add an exception and allow for 3 or 4 non footballers, to get a full 11?
Or maybe a 5-a-side team?
I’m assuming Snoop would be you’re keeper? :lol: :lol:

Well, you’ve got 2 positions set! I imagine getting a decent gk is going to be the toughest position to fill out

Very nice!
Do some more digging and get a full squad; although with Duncan in your team, you could take scrubs and still win!
Ok. I definitely win this.

Anthony Lopes

Trezeguet Mazzarri Choudury Edwards

Greenwood Weah.

Im lacking defenders but I also share a birthday with Jonah Lomu so I’m drafting him in. No f*cker is going near him

That’s quite a good team!

Going with the 5 a-sides, here’s my lineup:

Richard Dean Anderson (MacGyver from tv)
Luis Enrique——Ruben Loftus Cheek
Arjen Robben
Eusébio


With MacGyver in goal, I’m hoping he can rig something up with duct-tape and a paper clip to keep a clean sheet (millennials might have to google MacGyver)
