Shamelessly nicked from one of the episodes of Guardian Football Weekly I actually managed to consume over the festive period. I'll credit them as the originator. @Stat Brother will no doubt be able to tell me if this has been followed up since. But....

There are some players where you have to use their full name (or actually a shortening of the first plus the surname in the first example). You can't just call them (for example) "Scholes" or "Redknapp". And the prime example given on the pod was our own Solly March. Everyone calls him Solly March.

Discussed this with the boy last night and he offered up Emile Smith-Rowe as another example. Jefferson Lerma is one too.

Must be tons more though?
