Shit Lookalikes: Does exactly what it says on the tin. As far as we’re concerned, when it comes to footballing lookalikes; the shitter the better!
Thanks to Pies reader Dave Sparks for notifying us of the glaring similarities between Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp and the Lion from The Wizard of Oz. The pair have similar wigs and identical droopy cheeks. I always get the characters mixed up. If I recall correctly, the Tin Man was looking for a heart and the Scarecrow wanted a brain. I think the Lion was after a bung as part of Dorothy’s controversial move to Emerald City.
One’s a Bulgarian winger that plays for Aston Villa and the other is an 80s American teen film star – but both share a fondness for big hair and highlights
Shamon motherf*cker! Remember when Michael Jackson was still black and had most of his own facial features?
Yet another of Pies’ hugely popular barrel-scraping doppelgangers series, Shit Lookalikes, for your viewing pleasure. Fulham’s Anglo-Ecuadorian-Northern Irish manager Lawrie Sanchez and his new specs are a dead ringer for Anglo-Chinese Channel 4 presenter Gok Wan, star of the WAG must-watch How To Look Good Naked.
Maybe not at first glance but next time take a look at ITV sports presenter, Jim Rosenthal, and youâ€™ll see he bears an odd resemblance to Sesame Streetâ€™s number loving vampire â€“ Ah, Ah, Ah
Following our feature on footballers who rap, perhaps we should next consider footballers who look like rappers. First we showed you that El Hadji Diouf is Pharrell Williams. Now we can conclusively proove that Spurs and England midfielder Jermaine Jenas is a passable double for US hip hop star Rich Boy. Nuff respec’ to Pies reader Craig for spotting this one.
A big shout-out to Pies reader Mark Sharon for spotting that Kieran Richardson looks rather similar to Micah (played by Noah Gray-Cabey, a ten-year-old classically trained pianist), a character in new hit TV show ‘Heroes’. I haven’t yet seen Heroes, but friends tell me it’s rather good – unlike Kieran, who is rather shit.
Well, whad’ya know? It turns out Fat Frank Lampard is actually carrying a few less pounds know than we he was a kid! This is one of a selection of photos in this excellent gallery of footballers when they were young.
A bit obscure unless youâ€™re into comic book adaptations like Blade 2 or Hell Boy. Both films featured the Holllywood actor, Ron Perlman, but if he canâ€™t make the next sequel then weâ€™re sure former US and Blackburn goalkeeper, Brad Friedel, would be the perfect substitute
Without doubt the shittest lookalike I’ve ever posted, but it is a rather amusing pic – so sue me. It was taken during a visit by the Man Utd squad to Chimelong Safari Park in Guangzhuo, China.
In the same way that overweight comedian Peter Kay looks like John Oâ€™Shea we think that another out of condition comic and 8 Out of Ten Cats presenter, Jason Manford, looks like a larger than life Michael Owen.
Thanks to Pies reader Doug Myers, who has taken advantage of our new Facebook group to suggest this outstanding Shit Lookalike. Carlos Tevez – despite being a dead ringer for Red Hot Chilli Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis – is also the spitting image of Blanca from the video game Street Fighter. That is uncanny!
Oh, and if anyone has a clue whether this should be in the West Ham or Man United category, let us know!
Oh, I enjoyed writing that headline. Seriously though, what the hell is The Ugliest Footballer in the World doing riding a big yellow toy pig? Is is a Bayern mascot or something? It looks a lot like Pikachu, don’t you think?
Spare a thought for Uzbekistan coach Rustam Akramov. His nation are not exactly one of football’s major powers, but nonetheless they are currently battling it out for the Asian Cup. The question is: who do you play in goal when all your keepers look like crazed serial killers?
Looks like Frank, aka Eric Cartman, has been demolishing his fair share of pies and cream cakes during his summer holidays. Jose Mourinho won’t be happy to see that his star midfielder has developed such an impressive set of man breasts, or moobs as we like to call ‘em. And he could do with a spot of lipo on that wobbly gut. Too much Christmas pudding Frank?
Rafa’s new goatee has generated some new Shit Lookalikes. Yay! Remember, while Fernando Torres still has to prove he is a quality Premiership player worth Â£20 million he is undoubtedly a better signing than Liza Minelli!
