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!
Shit Lookalike: El DeBarge and Arsenal’s Eduardo da Silva
September 17th, 2007
This has to be one of my favourite Shit Lookalikes for a while, so many thanks to Dave Harris (who edits his own fine Fulham blog, The Hammy End Chronicle) for sending it in. For younger readers, DeBarge is an RnB singer who was big in the 80s. If DeBarge played football, he’d also be a shoo-in for his own Horror Hair entry.

Shit lookalike: Mick McCarthy and Sam from The Muppets
September 14th, 2007
Life was a daily struggle for poor Sam The Eagle on The Muppet Show. The miserable feathered censor would be the constant figure of hatred as he tried to make a bunch of muppets put on a good show. Sounds a bit like poor Mick’s job at Wolves really…
Shit Lookalike: Emile Heskey and Michael Clarke Duncan
September 6th, 2007
Is Michael Clarke Duncan, star of The Green Mile, how Heskey would look if he ever broke out a smile?
Shit Lookalike: Gianfranco Zola and some random kid in a Bonnie Tyler video
September 3rd, 2007
This is a little scary! This appears to be Chelsea legend Gianfranco Zola starring in the video to Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of the Heart (click here if you want to put yourself through the entire video). What’s the Italian for Turn around, Bright Eyes?!

Shit lookalike: Harry Redknapp and the Lion from The Wizard Of Oz
August 20th, 2007
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.
Shit Lookalike: Stilian Petrov and Corey Haim
August 17th, 2007
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
Shit Lookalike: Nani ands 80s Michael Jackson
August 15th, 2007
Shamon motherf*cker! Remember when Michael Jackson was still black and had most of his own facial features?
Shit Lookalike: Lawrie Sanchez and Gok Wan from How To Look Good Naked
August 15th, 2007
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.
Shit lookalike: Jim Rosenthal and Count von Count
August 10th, 2007
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
Shit Lookalikes: Jermaine Jenas and US rapper Rich Boy
August 7th, 2007
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.

Shit lookalikes: Kieran Richardson and Micah from TV’s ‘Heroes’
July 31st, 2007
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.
Hilarious photos of footballers when they were kids
July 30th, 2007
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.
Shit lookalike: Brad Friedel and Ron Perlman
July 30th, 2007
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
Shit Lookalikes: Alex Ferguson and a toucan
July 27th, 2007
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.
Shit Lookalike: Michael Owen and Jason Manford
July 26th, 2007
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.

Shit Lookalike: Carlos Tevez and Blanca from Street Fighter
July 25th, 2007
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!
