Players’ ages that surprise you

Postby Ludeksgloves on Sat Apr 14, 2018 11:46 am

Just saw that Cesc Fabregas was only 30. I thought he was Much older. Seems to have been around forever.

Made his arsenal debut in 2003!

Not a footballer, but how the hell can Tom Daley still only be 23?

David Moyes was found in a tomb and scientists are still working on it.

Another nod to Ray Wilkins. I spoke to Chelsea fans on Sunday who said he was their best player aged 18 and QPR on Tuesday who said he was their best aged 39.

I was ****ing through the Spurs and Liverpool squad lists earlier - most of them are barely 25 yet seem to have been around for years.
